Take notes on top of slides in OneNote 2016 for Windows

If you want to gather feedback about a presentation you’ve put together or you’d like to add your own comments to lecture slides, you can send the presentation to OneNote 2016 and annotate it.

  1. Create or open a page in OneNote where you want to insert a PowerPoint presentation.

  2. Click Insert > File Printout.

  3. Navigate to the presentation file you want to send to OneNote, and then click Insert.

  4. When the images of the file printout appear on your notes page, right-click each image and then choose Set Picture as Background.

    After a slide printout is locked to the page background, you can start typing notes right over it. If you need to adjust the spacing of your annotations, drag the note containers into position as needed.

Tip:  You can give more visual context to your notes by drawing or using highlighting. You can also use custom note tags to categorize your feedback.

If you’re the presenter of the deck you’re annotating, you can create links to supporting information and open them during your presentation.
