OneNote notebooks give you the tools you need to record, organize, and build on your thoughts. After you create a notebook, you can start adding notes. This chapter from Microsoft OneNote Step by Step guides you through procedures related to creating, cutting, and copying notes; applying text formatting to notes; creating lists and outlines; changing paragraph formatting; and deleting formatting and items.
The most direct way to start adding notes is to click anywhere on the active page and start typing. After you add your notes, you can move them to another location, copy all or part of a note, and change the formatting as needed.
You can use formatting within OneNote to create headers that identify notes on a particular topic, emphasize text by using bold or italic formatting, and highlight text to group thoughts visually even when they’re on different parts of a page.
