Understanding the OneNote screen
have, by now, learned to love. OneNote 2010 has brought the program up to date
and introduced the ribbon. That means you might see some differences between
some of my screenshots and what you’re using on your PC, but they will mostly
be limited to the top of the screen and I’ll clarify any important differences as we
go along.
To start OneNote, follow the same steps as you did for Word (see Chapter 1), Excel
and PowerPoint. You might have an icon on your Windows desktop, but you are
certain to fi nd OneNote in your Windows Start menu.
Understanding the OneNote screen
Do you have a love affair with stationery? If you’re one of those super-organised
people who spends more on A4 paper than chocolate, and can snap ring binders
shut without cutting your fi ngers, you’ll love OneNote. The software is organised
along the same lines as a paper folder of notes.
In OneNote you have:
A notebook : This collects together all your related information. You can
have lots of different notebooks, and OneNote automatically gives you one
for work, one for personal stuff and one full of instructions. Think of each
notebook as a ring binder.
Tabbed sections: These are used to organise pages into logical groups, much
the same way as you might insert a tab page into a ring binder so you can fi nd
all the related pages easily.
Pages: Like Excel, a page in OneNote can be much bigger than a sheet of
paper. A OneNote page can take up many sheets of paper if you print it out.
Despite that, it’s still called a page.
Subpages: This is where the fi ling metaphor breaks down. You could think of
them as sticky notes attached to the pages in a folder, but since these subpages
can also be extremely deep, that doesn’t quite sit right in the imagination. To
avoid confusion, I recommend you forget about subpages. You might come
across them, though, so it’s worth knowing they exist.
