Working with Pages

Within each section (such as the Database section shown in Figure 3.1), you can have multiple OneNote pages. Each page can contain graphics, text, ink, and other pasted content such as Web site content and content from other Microsoft Office programs. In Figure 3.3, you'll notice that within the Database section, there are seven distinct pages, each corresponding to a particular type of database application. To switch from one page to another, simply click the page name.

Figure 3.3. Each tab along the right side of the page is a notebook page.


You might think from looking at the figure that there are actually nine pages. In addition to the named pages shown in the figure are two other tabs displayed on the screen. The first, with the icon of a piece of paper, allows you to create a new page. Just click the tab and OneNote inserts a blank page immediately following the last named page, as shown in Figure 3.4.

Figure 3.4. A new page is always inserted following the last existing page.


The last tab seen in Figure 3.3 is a subpage. You can use subpages to further segregate and categorize information. For example, if you were comparing the different types of databases available today, you might have a page on SQL Server listing its features and benefits. However, there are several different types of SQL Server (Enterprise, Standard, and Desktop Version). You could create a subpage for each type of SQL Server and store information about each type on that subpage.

To create a new subpage, click the new subpage tab, as shown in Figure 3.5.

Figure 3.5. You can click the new subpage tab to create a subpage.


The subpage is created under whatever page you were viewing at the time you created the subpage. You can think of a subpage as a page 2 for the initial page. So, in order to create a subpage to the SQL Server page, make sure you click the SQL Server tab along the right side of the page first, then click the new subpage tab.

You can create a subpage for any page you're viewing. However, if you're viewing a subpage and try to create another subpage, that subpage will actually be the same level as the subpage you were viewing. Both subpages will be under the same master page.
