Formatting text in OneNote notebook can really add some pizzazz to your notes, so information stands out and looks appealing. But there are some shortcuts as well, and in this lesson we're going to talk about using Quick Styles. We're still working with our Office1 notebook and we're in the Recipes section here, looking at a recipe for Red Pepper Marinade. We applied some formatting on our own. This time though, we're going to use styles. It is a little bit quicker. We're going to start with the title. We'll just click-and-drag across the top and we know we can go to the Ribbon with the Home tab selected, in the Styles group here, click that drop-down, and you'll see a number of different options.
Now, Page Title is currently selected even though we've applied our own formatting to it. Let's try another one, such as Heading 1. When we select that, you can see how it changes. Styles are a great way to add consistency to your notes. So, if we have many pages, like we have many recipes here, we can make them all kind of consistent and looking the same, but all looking interesting at the same time. So, let's go down to another Recipe here. We'll go to the Salmon Steak with Lemon and all we have here is an attached note, but let's go back up to this title here. We'll just click-and-drag across it.
This time though we're going to access Quick Styles by going to the mini toolbar. So, when we've got text that's been selected, we can move our mouse just up and to the right, and you can see that mini toolbar starts to appear. Then we've got our font case as well as the font size. The next button over is the Quick Styles button. So, you can click the drop-down and see those same Style options. For example, we want this to be Heading 1, we select it, that's been applied. Deselect by clicking anywhere outside, and we've got that consistency. Let's try one more time by going to Spaghetti with Olive Oil and Garlic.
This one's been formatted. So, we'll click-and-drag across there, and however you like to do it. You can use the mini toolbar, or go to the Styles group, and click Heading 1. Now we're creating that consistent look and feel. So, even though each of these styles has many formatting options being applied, they're applied all with one click of a button, thanks to our Quick Styles now available in OneNote 2010.
