Appending pages, the keyboard way and a bit slower

The other day I got an email from a user who had a question:

Do you know of a workaround that would enable me to select a whole bunch of side notes/notes and merge them into one page?

I thought this was a good question and there is no way to do this in OneNote currently, though it is a pretty cool idea.  I did share with the user what I do to do this, since I often combine notes just like they mentioned.  Since I love the keyboard this is how I do this:

  1. If you are on a clip and you hit Ctrl-A until you get the whole outline
  2. Then Ctrl-X to cut it
  3. Then Ctrl-Shift-A to select the whole page
  4. Then Del to remove the page
  5. Then I navigate to the page I want to go to (typically in the same section) so Ctrl-PageUp/Down to move up down the section.
  6. When I am on the destination page I hit Ctrl-T to move my IP to the title area
  7. Then I Ctrl-V to paste and since I am in the title area it appends it below all other content on the page.
  8. Success

It works for me and I just wanted to share this with everyone.  Hope that helps...take care!
