Sending to OneNote with Hazel


Has anyone found a way to send a PDF to OneNote with Hazel? I currently have Hazel watching a folder and when a PDF lands in it, Hazel will launch a utility to OCR it. Next, I would like it to be sent to OneNote. Obviously there is no direct method but I’ve been trying to think outside the box and I’m stumped.

Any ideas?

Thank you.


Some quick ideas come to mind:

  • build an AppleScript that uses system events to select the necessary menu items and press the necessary buttons and call that from Hazel
  • or use Keyboard Maestro to do that if it’s easier
  • check if OneNote is at all scriptable (earlier versions of MS Office supported macros) and if it does write the necessary actions in that and build a much simpler AppleScript that triggers them

I don’t use OneNote so I don’t know what is possible
