Create a new page template

In Microsoft Office OneNote 2007, you can use templates to apply a uniform page layout and design for the pages in your notebook. Page templates can enhance the appearance of your notes through consistent use of color, background images, and text formatting.

In addition to the templates that OneNote provides, you can format a page the way you want, and then save it as a new template.

  1. On the File menu, point to New, and then click Page.

    Note: You can also create a new page by clicking New Page above the page tabs.

  2. On the File menu, click Page Setup, and then in the Page Setup task pane, set any options you want.

  3. Add any content to the page that you want to appear whenever new pages are created based on your custom template.

    For example, if you are creating a template for meeting notes, you could add an agenda section and headings for the meeting's date and time.

  4. At the bottom of the Page Setup task pane, click Save current page as a template.

  5. In the Save As Template dialog box, type a name the Template Name box.

  6. To apply this template to every new page that you add to the current section in your notebook, select the Set as default template for new pages in the current section check box.

  7. Click Save.

Note: Templates that you create are automatically added to the My Templates list in the Templates task pane.
