A variation on the language support trick from Petri above seems to do what you want: Select a block of text in your document that you want to disable for spell checking Go to the Review tab and select Language > Set Proofing Language Select a language for which you and your likely readers have no dictionary, e.g. Afrikaans, Cherokee etc. work for me. The ...

From: http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/onenote-help/keyboard-shortcuts-in-onenote-2013-HA102749248.aspx It's not possible to change this shortcuts in onenote 2013 (you can change them in word 2013). You can however, use autohotey, to "change" them. I use this ahk script for example: ^Down::Send !+{+} ^Up::Send !+- This maps Ctrl+Up and Crtl+Down to ...

I tried updating the location and rebuilding the index, it took all day, and didn't resolve my issue. I then tried renaming the cache folder and it worked right away. Close OneNote Go to C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Local\Microsoft\OneNote\16.0 Rename the cache folder to something else like cache.old Open OneNote. It may take a couple minutes to rebuild the ...

This was so easy, I'm surprised no one answered! In OneNote 2010 (I assume is similar for other versions), open the backstage (File menu) and look to the right. There's a button labeled "Open Backups"! On my system, this opened Explorer to: C:\Users\kevinbuchan\AppData\Local\Microsoft\OneNote\14.0\Backup Recovery was easy now!

You cannot vertically center text in a table in OneNote I too had this issue. Try as a might, I could not find a way to do it. The only solution seems to be to use the "Insert a Microsoft Excel Spreadsheet" Within Excel you can format the table to your liking, hit the save button and the changes will replicate to the embedded spreadsheet in OneNote.

This answer is for version 16 of OneNote. I am posting it here as its one of the top search results for the issue of pasting unformatted text in OneNote. Go to settings then options. Currently at the bottom of the options you can set the default paste options to keep text only.

The trick works for me is to set page language to something you don't have language support in your computer. For example I changed page language to "Afrikaans". Then OneNote does not make spelling checking for this page because Afrikaans -dictionary is missing.

This has a microsft-onenote-2010 tag, I can't tell how it works in 2010 but in OneNote2013 I did: Select the text or page Set the desired language in Review > Language > Set Proofing Language and it worked.

I was able to figure this out for you. Click Home Click the little arrow to choose numbering style Click Customize numbering Choose the Sequence style and the Format Type your content then press Enter then Backspace then Tab Choose format for next section To create a sub-section to the sub-section, press Enter then Backspace then Tab Continue the sub-...

How can I paste unformatted text only This can be done using a tiny (33KB) free (and portable) application called PureText. You use a different keystroke instead of the normal ctrl+v to paste. Then it will convert the clipboard contents and paste "plain" text. I have mine bound to ctrl+q. Have you ever copied some text from a web page or a document and ...

Matrix 4x1 can be linearly represented with: [\matrix (@@@)] In general matrix m x n can be represented with m-1 @ and n-1 &. EDIT Lots of office equation syntaxes can be found in this article: The Word 2007/2010 Equation Editor

I discovered by accident that if you precede the paragraph where you don't want red spell checking marks to show up with the symbol for, "therefore" then that paragraph will not show words that contain spelling errors underlined. You can make the symbol for, "therefore" (3dots) by holding down the Alt key then typing 8756 then releasing the Alt key. This ...

This happens when you go to a page and all you do there is just collapsing a few lists. List collapse is not executing automatic page save. In order to solve this, once you collapse all lists you want, you have to write and delete few letters into the page. Writing letters will execute page save, so after exit and return your list will be in the state you ...

A temporary solution until Microsoft fixes this bug is just to click "Clear All Formatting" (or Ctrl + Shift + N) and then continue on your work. I found that it makes the font whatever you set it to as the default. Hope this helps!

The answer from Cindy Jayakumar is correct, but for me it required an additional step. When I clicked on "Not Joe Blogs" it just refreshed the list of notebooks / did nothing. I had to delete cookies in Internet Explorer to get myself signed out. N.B. I would have left this as a comment rather than an answer, but I don't yet have the reputation required....

I have found a kludgy workaround that works in OneNote 2016 on Windows; insert an invisible Zero Width Joiner (ZWJ) character between the two forward-slash character. This works even if the URL is prefixed with a protocol such as http: This can be done by typing /, Alt + 8 2 0 3, / and the rest of the URL [1]. This also works to prevent auto-creation of ...

Because your handwritten notes are "digital ink" they will stay the hard-coded color that you wrote them. "Marks on a page" (which is how M$ describes handwriting) is considered to be a kind of drawing, which has a fixed, hard-coded color, as it is NOT a font. You can convert them using the built-in handwriting recognition to font(ed) text (see bottom of ...

You can add an existing matrix size similar to what you need, like the 3x1, then right click the inserted matrix and select linear. This will give a simpler representation of that matrix, with at signs (@) signaling the start of rows and ampersands (&) signaling contents of a column/cell, which you can then try and add to by mimicking the style. When ...

I found a neet way of highlighting in OneNote by downloading a small piece of software called DragLock, which does exactly what it should, i.e. locks the vertical movement of the mouse while pressing the alt (or any other) key. When you want to highlight a sentence, just select the highlight pen, press and hold "alt" and highlight the line - as the vertical ...

You might want to use Macro to remove and clean hyperlinks. Here is the link for that. http://omeratay.com/onetastic/?r=macroland&id=3CCCF26E44F74EF49E102FEE9A64799F It looks like this:

I don't believe this is possible. The date/time selectors underneath the title are a feature of the title, and not a standard date/time input. The only options provided in this list are the standard date/time inserts you've mentioned. Still I've poked around extensivly and there aren't any hidden options for this, and I have been unable to find anything ...

The only way I found (OneNote 2010): Select your OneNote page(s) File -> Send -> E-mail Page All of your embedded files will be in a new email as attachments. Now you can extract them from there.

This is a known issue since 2005; OpenOffice Bugzilla has two bug report on this issue, one from 2005 and one from 2009. You may subscribe to the bug reports and vote them up so the issue receives higher priority. There seems to be no solution up to now, only two workarounds: Pasting to OpenOffice / LibreOffice works if OneNote is closed, so copy - close ...

Found out my problem. When I tried to print printer's test page, OneNote showed me this error: Before you can use this feature, OneNote must start for the first time. When I tried printing from Adobe Reader DC, it showed no error and just printed the page to nowhere. I had already run OneNote, but the latest version that comes automatically with ...

I'm not able to view your sample document, but my question is why do you need to keep the content in separate containers? If you put it all in the same container, you won't have this problem. I don't think there is any way to keep the content in separate, vertically stacked containers from overlapping if the content in a top container grows into the ...

Yes, I do it a lot because I work in eleven languages (I don't understand them all of course). Go to "Start" and run "Microsoft Office 2010 Language Preferences". Here you can configure all installed languages for spelling checker and user interface of Word. You might need to acquire additional languages.
