Apply a template to new pages

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

OneNote provides several page templates to help you get started; from decorative backgrounds to functional notes pages, like planners and To Do lists.

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

  2. In the Templates task pane, under Add a page, click a category in the list, and then click the name of the template you want to use. OneNote creates a new page in the current section based on the selected template.

Tip: To quickly apply recently used templates to a new page, in the page tabs list, click the arrow next to the New Page button, and then click the name of the template you want to apply. Click Blank Template if you want to create a new blank page.

Note: Many template designs include page content that appears in specific places. Templates can therefore be applied only to new pages that do not already contain notes. To use a page template for notes you have already taken, create a new page from the template you want, and then copy your existing notes to it.
