Text alignment can not only balance the page—it can also give structure to levels of information and how they relate to titles, subtitles, and paragraphs. Learn how to use shortcuts to increase and decrease the text position.
- [Narrator] You may have noticed by now that OneNote is a bit different when it comes to page layout and word processing, editing features. I'm going to show you a couple shortcuts for increasing or decreasing the text position. You may be thinking, I already know how to do this in Microsoft Word or Outlook. Yes, the increase and decrease commands on the Home ribbon within the basic text group of OneNote do work the same as Word, Outlook, and other Office applications. Let's look at this in a different way, though, and this way requires that you don't have to navigate the ribbon with your mouse.
If you place the mouse cursor in front of the text that you'd like to reposition, and by pressing the tab key, notice that it actually repositions the entire paragraph, it's indenting that text. If you need to decrease the position of the text, we're going to hold down the keyboard combination shift and tab to decrease that text position. So, these can actually be used multiple times. If I needed to reposition this and increase it by maybe just more than one tabbed position, we can press tab again.
And same thing, shift, tab to take that back out. Now, something that I discovered by accident while using the shift and tab keyboard shortcut was that instead of actually having the mouse positioned within the text where we have the blinking cursor, if we have a container selected, the shift, tab keyboard shortcut actually accesses a navigation shortcut to take you to the next container within that same page. With these tips, I hope you find your way around the pages more quickly and get your notes aligned just right.
