In OneNote 2010 Essential Training, instructor David Rivers demonstrates how OneNote can be used to take notes, organize thoughts, do research, and collaborate with others on projects. This course shows how to quickly add rich content to notebooks, format the content with OneNote's new formatting and styles capabilities, organize information to suit individual needs, and retrieve information effectively. It also shows how to take advantage of the robust OneNote 2010 sharing and collaboration features like Outlook integration, change highlighting and page versioning, wiki-style linking, and the OneNote web applications. Exercise files accompany the course.
Keeping your information organized is the best way to make it simpler for you down the road to find the content you're looking for. Well, in OneNote 2010 that involves creating sections, pages, and even sub-pages in a notebook and we're going to talk about that now. We'll start by going to our Office notebook and we will click the Recipe section. It takes us directly to the Recipe section of a notebook and you may be looking at any of the pages or sub-pages in this notebook. If we go up to the A-D section, you can see we actually have links to the various recipes that fall under the heading A-D.
And if we go to M-P, we really don't anything. Well, each of these is a page, A-D, E-A, I-L, Q-Z, and M-P is a page that contains nothing. The others have sub-pages. So how do we add a sub-page? We know if we go up to the New Page button with M-P selected, we're going to get another page that appears down below. We don't want another page. We want another sub-page. So we'll click the drop-down next to New Page and choose New Sub-page and because we had M-P selected, a new Untitled sub-page appears underneath that.
We are ready to start typing in what it is we want to add to our recipes. So let's just type in Meat Lasagna and press Return. We now have a brand new sub-page. Let's say we have another one know that belongs here in the M-P category. Notice as we move from Page to Sub-page, there is a little icon that appears over to the left-hand side. Well that little New Page icon is going to create either a new page or a new sub-page, depending on what's selected. If we go next to a sub-page and we click this button, we are going to get another sub-page.
So I'll give it a click. Notice it's untitled and we are ready to start typing in the next recipe. So let's type in Pepper Marinade and press Return. So that falls under the category. We got a new sub-page. It's as simple as that, and we realize we should be more specific with this recipe, so we're going to change the name to Red Pepper Marinade. All of a sudden it doesn't fit the category anymore. We need to move it down. Well that's very simple to rearrange your sub-pages. You just move to the page you want to change its location from, click, and drag to the location where you want it.
In this case we want it right before Tomato Basil Pasta. When we release, we just moved it to a totally different section, in this case our Q-Z page. So we have our Red Pepper Marinade in the right spot, ready to start adding its content. Maybe we decide, well, we don't really have a recipe for that. So the other option is just to delete it. Now with it selected you could hit your Delete key or just right-click and Delete appears at the very top. In this case we're deleting a sub-page, so we will do that by clicking. There we go. And we are taken directly to the next recipe, in this case our Tomato Basil Pasta.
Now another option is to create a sub-page from an existing page. Let's say, for example, you have the Q- Z section selected and you went up and you clicked New Page because you wanted a new sub-page. Notice that an untitled page is created for you. But when you right click the untitled page, you do have an option to make it a sub-page. In this case it's going to be a sub- page under the existing page, which is in this case our Q-Z. It's still untitled, but it's now a sub-page. So we could come in here and type in the name of our sub-page, and then pressing Return or Enter on your keyboard locks it in, and we can rearrange things just by clicking and dragging like we did a moment ago.
When you click on any of these new pages or sub-pages you will notice that a brand-new frame is created for you to start typing in your notes. Logically that is the next step when creating a notebook here in OneNote 2010.
