I was having an issue with inserting PDF printout in OneNote desktop.
Using W10, and the « Reader » App to read PDF file, I could easily open PDF documents, and send them to OneNote using the printer « OneNote 201x printer » ; but I could not insert a printout while using OneNote desktop.
OneNote 2016 did not worked better than OneNote 2013 in this respect.
On the other hand, it was working fine within OneNote universal : kind of frustrating !
Recently, I found some advises on the Microsoft forum, but it involved changing the registry key, and the post was old (2013).
One thing I read on this forum supported my belief that there was indeed a bug :
« Everyone is having this problem.
There are 3 people in Tibet and 1 person in Berlin who do not have this problem.
Also, all the people who do not have this problem do not have this problem. »
Since I was not planning to move to Tibet, I searched for more conventional advises, and here it is !
→I was using « Reader » to read my PDF (the Microsoft PDF reader that came bundled with W10), and « Drawboard PDF » to annotate them. Both are « Modern UI » Apps, available in the Store.
Hence the problem : universal UI’ API do not communicate with OneNote desktop… (sorry, that may not be the right technical way to say, but you may catch the idea).
Installing a desktop PDF reader solved the issue !
(I installed Adobe Acrobat Reader DC)
Reference : for more advanced trouble shooting, you may refer to the Microsoft forum, and especially the advise from Omer Atay on his reply dated January, 28th, 2013.
