The MOS OneNote exam (77-421) objective requires candidates to understand how to merge OneNote sections including whether to retain or delete the merged portions. Add color to sections and notebook to visually group related information. This video continues the exploration of OneNote 2013 in support of the MOS exam
- [Voiceover] In this chapter we'll continue our exploration of one note, in support the Microsoft Office Special exam. Our first topics will be Merging and Grouping Sections. We can combine sections by merging them together. And we can also create some visual grouping in both sections as well as notebooks, by using color. For this video we'll go a head and continue to use exercise files that I've created for you.
So navigate back to your desktop, double clicked to open the exercise files folder, and is where in chapter four. Open the chapter four folder, and this is our first folder in chapter four, so let's open that. The Office 365 Rollout is the one note notebook we continuing to use. So to actually to open the notebook. Open the folder that contains the whole information, and double click on the one note table of contents file called Open notebook.
We have several sections on our notebook that could be combined into one section. Our FAQs, and our quick start guides could be combined with the resources section to streamline our notebook and make it easier to use. So we'll first start by merging the FAQ section, into the resources section. One method of merging is to simply right click on the section tab, and choose from the shortcut menu, merge in to another section.
It's already exepanded out my Office 365 Rollout notebook. Because it assumes that I wanna merge a section into an existing section in the same notebook. But bare in mind you can always merge a section from one notebook, into a section in another notebook. I'll click on the resources setion, as a section to merge into. Click on merge, it asks me one last time to make sure if I wanna merge one section into another.
And does remind me that section merging cannot be undone. I'll click merge sections, and the final question that appers is asking me whether I wish to delete the original section FAQ, I'll go a head and say delete. Merging sections physically combines information. If you have many notebooks through sections you wanna keep separate but indicate that they may relate to one another, you can assign the same color to the section tabs.
So I'm gonna go a head and move my rollout plans section, next to my overview section, by simply clicking and dragging and dropping that section over. And both of those are related but I don't wanna merge. I'm gonna simply change both of these section tabs to the same color. So I'll right click overview tab, at the very bottom of that shortcut menu, I have a choice for section color. I'll pick apple, and I'll do the same with my rollout plans section.
So right click, section color, and I'll choose apple. Now, even though I didn't physically merge them. By assigning the same color to the sections, it kinda have indicated they have some information in common. As we've seen in earlier videos you can also work, with your list of notebooks pinned open. To pin my notebook list. I'm gonna click the drop down and click the pin to the right hand side.
When your notebooks are pinned, you also have a nice way of sort of organizing them visually, by adding color to the notebook. So I could right click on my notebook for example, choose properties, and in the properties window select a different color. I didn't actually change the notebook but I might wanna apply the same color to the different notebooks, if the notebooks themselves are related.
So to Recap. When we work with both sections, and with notebooks, we can combine the sections by actually physically merging them. When you merge a section you're always given an option is to whether you wish to keep, the old section or delete it. It's purely up to you. Visually we can also group information by color. We can assign the same color to our sections and if we've pinned our notebooks through the notebook properties, we can also change the color.
And make related notebooks the same color.
