Workaround for Vista 64-bit “Send to OneNote” problem

Microsoft_onenote_logoWe already know that the “Send to OneNote” issue on machines running the 64-bit version of Vista won’t be addressed until the next release of OneNote. I’m sure that the problem affects very few individuals as well, since there are very few Tablet PCs capable of running the 64-bit version. If you’re one of the few, the proud, the 64-bit inkers, then here’s a little workaround for you.Dan Escapa offers the solution steps for you, but it’s only a partial workaround as OneNote won’t OCR your artifact under this method. You’ll end up using another program to send your output to a TIFF image format, which you can then insert into OneNote for markups. Part of me wonders why you can’t just the included Snipping Tool to bypass the installation of another app, but I don’t have a 64-bit Tablet PC to test with. I know you can’t save a snip as a TIFF file, but wouldn’t a JPG work for a single page of info and accomplish the same thing?
