OneNote ReadOnly Section Addin

I just finished coding a OneNote 2007 addin which will make the currently selected section ReadOnly, so that that section cannot be changed (unless you hit the ReadOnly button again then it will be editable again). <- Note to self possibly add a dialog asking if turning off ReadOnly is what is actually wanted. [Don’t know that maybe annoying 🙂 ]


You can find it here.

    If I install this add in and makea section read only, will others who haven\’t installed it be prevented from changing the section?

    I\’m trying to download it, but the site\’s blocked by my network\’s firewall as being a porn/phishing site.  Is there somewhere else I can get the download?

    It would be nice to have someting like this for a page and not a whole section.

    I might just be being daft, but either I\’m missing something about how to use this, or it seems to be rather random as to whether or not clicking the ReadOnly button does anything! It seems that if I click it and click round the page lots of times randomly, I can eventually get it to switch to read-only and back again, but not in a reliable manner. Am I missing something?

    Hi, Blairwould. Can you please send me the addin? And what about Source code? the download link is not working now.

    This is the very important feature for my open source product:

    Thanks a lot.

    Is this still available?

  12. demkoalex says:

    This is not true 🙂
    The approach is still applicable.
    Just read the “path” attribute of current section and make the file read only. It does not work only with skydrive.
