Creating a new notebook for your recipes
you create a notebook. After you’ve selected an option, the menu disappears
again. It takes a bit longer to use than the ribbon in OneNote 2010, because the
OneNote 2010 ribbon lays your options out before you all the time, so you can
access them using one click (if you want something in the current ribbon) or two
(if you need to switch ribbon fi rst). The menu system used in OneNote 2007
always requires you to click to open the pulldown menu fi rst.
The advantage of this is that you have more space available on screen for your
actual document. There’s always an upside!
Underneath the main menu bar, you can see a row of icons and buttons (a toolbar) that
is used to add content to your OneNote pages and to format them (see Figure 8.2). This
toolbar provides quicker access to some of the most popular features from the menus.
Many of the icons and buttons will be familiar to you from Word and Excel,
including the cut, copy and paste icons. The text formatting controls are similar to
Word too, including those used for font and text style (bold, italic, underline), for
bullets and indentation, and for colouring text. If you put your mouse over an
icon, a box will pop up to tell you what it does.
Don’t be afraid to try something out. If you make a mistake, you’ll fi nd the
Undo option in the Edit menu in OneNote 2007 or you can use the Undo
button in the top left corner of OneNote 2010. CTRL+Z will undo, too.
Creating a new notebook for your recipes
When you start it, OneNote gives you a work notebook and a personal notebook,
and suggests that you might like to keep recipes in your personal notebook, all
stored in a single tabbed section called ‘Recipes’. That might be okay if you’re
only going to have one or two recipes, but it becomes diffi cult to organise once
you’ve got more than a handful.
I suggest you dedicate a new notebook to recipes. This will keep them separate
from other personal stuff, such as your shopping lists and travel plans. It also
means you can use tabbed sections to organise different recipes, with a section
dedicated to starters, mains, puddings and those all-important cakes.
