Video: Creating, moving, and deleting sections and pages

When you create a brand new notebook like we did with our User Conference 2010 notebook that we see in front of us here, automatically a new section is created for you. It's automatically named New Section 1 and a brand new untitled page also appears in that section and the cursor is flashing in the title area waiting for you to name the page. So we need to discuss now how to create sections, rename them, and then start talking about creating and even deleting pages and sections. So here we are in our brand New Section 1.

Creating, moving, and deleting sections and pages

When you create a brand new notebook like we did with our User Conference 2010 notebook that we see in front of us here, automatically a new section is created for you. It's automatically named New Section 1 and a brand new untitled page also appears in that section and the cursor is flashing in the title area waiting for you to name the page. So we need to discuss now how to create sections, rename them, and then start talking about creating and even deleting pages and sections. So here we are in our brand New Section 1.

The first thing we are going to do is rename it just something meaningful. Something that is going to give us an idea about what content is going to be hidden in this section. So the best way is to go to the tab itself at the very top and just right click. You'll see a pop up menu with many options including right at the top, Rename. When we select that it highlights New Section 1 and by the way double clicking the tab will do the same thing. We can just change the name by typing over what's there. Let's type in the word Facility. So this first section will deal with everything related to the facility for our User Conference in 2010.

When you press Enter on your keyboard, it's locked in. You've renamed the section. It appears on the tap at the top, as well as the tabs that you see in your navigation bar. Notice there is a little tab just to the right off our new facility tab. It's got a star, this is where we go to create a brand new section. So click once and it becomes New Section 1 and we can type right over that. Let's give it a more meaningful name such as Schedule, and when you press Return, you now have a brand new section called Schedule. You'll also notice that there is untitled page here as well.

Notice the color coding too. So you can always tell which tab or section you're in. In this case our schedule is a pinky color. You see that all the way around the outside as well over here where our page tabs appear. When we go back to Facility, you can see this one is blue. So is the area over here on the right hand side. Let's create another section. We will click the Create New Section. You'll notice it's automatically added to the end even though we were on the Facility tab. We will just add one more. We will call it Speakers and press Enter. So there we go, we have got three sections.

Now it's time to start talking about creating the pages. So for our speakers, for example, we might have many speakers coming to the User Conference and we should organize some into their own pages. Well, the first page is already created for you. It's an untitled page, but the cursor is flashing waiting for you to type in a name. So let's just type in Keynote. And when you press Enter here, that locks it in and automatically OneNote is trying to create a brand new note on the page for you. You got that little frame area where you can start typing in notes about the keynote speaker.

Let's go to create another new page though. Now you'll notice with Keynote selected, when we click New Page, a new page is automatically added underneath. It's untitled, but the cursor is flashing in the title area, so all we have to do is type it in. Let's type in your own name. I am going to type in my own name and press Return. And now we'll add one more new page by clicking the New Page button again, there it is. It's untitled. We will add our third speaker for now and we'll press Return. Now of course, we can always go back to these and add information such as the keynote.

If we don't have a keynote speaker at the time, just leave it as Keynote, but when we do get a name, just come in here and we will add that name, maybe put a dash in there and we will type in whoever our keynote speaker is, and when you press Return it's locked in. You rename the page just by changing up the title a little bit. And what if you want to rearrange things? Let's say we want to rearrange these sections. Maybe Speaker should come before the Schedule. All you do is go to the tab itself. Just click and drag. You'll see that little black triangle in between the tabs.

So if you want it at the beginning, go all the way to the left, still dragging. Let's go between Facility and Schedule and release. Now, it's just been reordered. You'll see it's reordered over here in the navigation bar in the left-hand side as well. Same goes for our pages. That makes sense of the keynotes at the top here, but if we go to David Rivers, just click and drag down. In this case you see a black bar. So we want to bring it down below Karen Corey and release. There we go. We have reordered the pages, simple as that. If there is a page you don't need, let's Karen Corey is dropping out, you can go to Karen Corey here, right-click the page and you'll see a pop up menu with a number of options, including right at the top Delete.

So when you click Delete, the Karen Corey page is gone, everything collapses together so it's a nice and organized, and we are ready to continue. So creating your sections and creating your pages, we will be talking about subpages a little bit later on, will help you to stay organized, making it easy to find the content once you get it in there.
