Actually, to select all text on a OneNote page, you must do Ctrl-A twice! The cursor can be placed anywhere on the page, but if you do it only once, it just selects the line it's on. [Reply]

Updated page to list ctrl+[a] 1x = select line, 2x select section, 3x = select page. Thank you for pointing that out!

The OneNote shortcut key for expanding/collapsing outlines is incorrect. See Outline keys section on this page Currently it says: Alt+Shift+[/] Expand collapsed outline The actual shortcut is Alt+Shift+"+" or Alt+Shift+"-" to expand or collapse outline Thx! DG [Reply]

Copy the table to be joined: +2. Position the cursor just below the first column of the other table: use the 3. Insert and Join the two tables: +Step 3 above can also be accomplished by simply deleting blank lines between the aligned tables residing in the same group 2. Copy the lower [Reply]

We use Macro Express (ME) and have dozens of macros that we use to make our work more uniform, reduce typos, and save keystrokes. In ME, one can designate whether a macro will work globally, only in selected programs, or exclude programs one does not want the macro to run. We have just recently started using OneNote 2010 and several of the shortcut sequences duplicate macros we already have. Is there a way to have OneNote shortcuts run ONLY in OneNote? Thank you.
