How to edit screen clipping after I inserted it into OneNote?

Hi,

After I captured/inserted a screen clipping into my OneNote, I want to draw
a rectangular around some area inside of the clipping just like what I can do
with "Paint". Is there any way to do it?

Thanks a lot,
Zhuge

Send the clipped image to the background (right-click it...) and then draw
right on top of it.

Hi,

Sorry about the confusion. My question is actually .... is there any tool
which can let me draw a rectangle on my screen clip, just like what I can do
in the Paint by selecting the "Rectangle" from the tool box. So far in
OneNote the only drawing tool I found is Pen. Is there anything like
"Rectangle"?

Thanks a lot,
Zhuge

Not in the current version, no. You could draw a rectangle in paint and
then copy/paste it into OneNote.

If you have SnagIt, you can take your screen captures that way, then
save them as a graphic file. Edit the image in whatever graphic tool
you use (my preference is Paint Shop Pro), then get that image into the
clipboard again and paste that image into your OneNote document.

A bit ugly, but if it needs much formatting, I paste the screen clip into PowerPoint, add all the stuff like arrows etc.; group it all together and copy paste into oneNote. It is a simple image then.

Glaring omission in oneNote that there is no reasonable picture editing available.
