These days, the information you need is often scattered about in different documents, maybe it's in an email or on the Web. The nice thing about a OneNote notebook is you can centralize that information by gathering it and inserting it directly into the notebook. That includes actual files, text files, for example. Let's do that using our TwoTrees notebook, but we'll go to the Recipes section, and let's say we want to add a new recipe here for Salmon Steaks with Lemon. I'm going to go in the Q-Z group of pages here, right below our Red Pepper Marinade.
So, to add a new page here, we just want to make sure that the little page icon and the black bar appears under Red Pepper Marinade, before we click it. This adds a new untitled page, but we can start typing Salmon Steak with Lemon, just like that. Now, down below is where we want that recipe to go, but let's say we've already got it in a document. Well, in that case, we go to the Insert tab on the Ribbon here and attach the file. We'll click Attach File and navigate to the 02_07 subfolder here where we do find our LemonSalmon.txt file.
So, it is a text file. With it selected, click Insert and you'll see an icon for the LemonSalmon. Now, if at any time we need to access that recipe, we just simply double-click and it opens it up in its native application. In this case, it's Notepad, because we're working with a text file. Of course, if we needed to, we could copy and paste any of this information if we wanted it right on the page, or just simply access it the way we just did, closing up the Notepad when we're done viewing the recipe, and we'll always have access to it here as an inserted file, right on the page here in our notebook.
