Adding your recipes
Now it’s time to gather up all those scraps of paper and bits of old envelope that
you’ve jotted your recipes down on over the years. Let’s start to add our recipes.
You’ll notice lots of similarities here with Word and Excel, but there are enough
differences to keep you on your toes, too. I’ll fl ag them up as we work through
the recipes.
Adding a recipe page

To insert a new page, fi rst click the tab of the section where you would like to add
the page. Then click the New Page button. You’ll fi nd this at the top of the list of
pages in the current section, on the right of the screen (see Figures 8.1 and 8.2). If
the list of pages is not visible, click on the ‘expand’ arrow beside the New Page
button at the top of the right-hand column.
OneNote automatically timestamps a page underneath its title with the time

Every page in OneNote has its own title. You can see this on the page itself but,
more importantly, it’s also used to help you fi nd the right page in a notebook. The
page title is what appears in the tabs on the right showing all the pages in a
particular section. If you have a clear title, you can easily jump to the right recipe just
