To me one of the coolest things about Pen Mode in OneNote 2010 is the ability to convert any text that you've written either into text itself as if it were typed or even into math equations. So we're going to use our TwoTrees7 notebook. Still working in the AGM section with the Room Setup tab where we do have some ink on our page including our names. So if you were following along, you maybe wrote your own name in Pen Mode here. And we're going to convert that into text. So the first step is to select it.
Let's use our Lasso Select. We'll just click-and- drag around the entire text. So we get it all selected. And you may have noticed here with Draw tab selected on the Ribbon that we've got a Convert group over here at the very far right. One of the options is to convert Ink into Text. So if we click there, look what happens. It's right underneath the title Person Responsible. It's spelled perfectly. It was my own handwriting, but OneNote was clever enough to convert that into typed text to say David Rivers.
We'll go back to Pen Mode here. Just click anyone of the Pen tools and let's move down underneath our name and we'll just write CEO. In this case we're printing. Let's put the periods in between and at the end. And let's use the Lasso again to select that, because each of these is a separate object. And let's see what happens when we convert that Ink to Text.
CEO, the dots are removed. So it looks like a title. I love this feature in OneNote 2010.
