Microsoft OneNote 2010 : Enabling or Disabling Automatic Wiki Link Creation

 
11/22/2011 3:27:35 PM
OneNote supports automatic wiki link creation. If you type the name of a page or section within double brackets (for example, [[Meeting Notes]]), OneNote will automatically link to the section or page with that title, allowing you to click the link and jump to that part of your notes without having to manually navigate to it.

If you use wiki links for pages that don’t yet exist, OneNote will automatically create a blank new page in the current section to remind you that you wanted to link to such a page later on. If you’d prefer to do this manually instead, you can turn off automatic wiki link creation by doing the following:

1.
On the File tab, click Options.

2.
In the OneNote Options dialog box, click the Advanced category on the left side.

3.
On the right side, under Editing, uncheck the Enable Link Creation by Typing [[ ]] Around a Phrase check box.

4.
Click OK to save your changes.

Disabling Linked Notes Creation in a Docked Window

By default, OneNote will assume that you want to begin a Linked Notes session whenever you dock the OneNote program window to your Windows desktop or whenever you choose to open a new docked window .

If you prefer to take notes in a docked window without starting a Linked Notes session, do the following:

1.
Click the File tab, and then click Options.

2.
In the OneNote Options dialog box, click the Advanced category on the left side.

3.
On the right side, scroll down to the Linked Notes heading, and then uncheck the Allow Creation of New Linked Notes check box.

4.
Click OK to save your changes.

Once you’ve followed these steps, you will not be able to use the Linked Notes feature in any new docked OneNote windows. To remind you of this, the Linked Notes icon in the upper-left corner of the docked window will be shown with a red, slashed circle over it (see Figure 1).

Figure 1. Whenever the Linked Notes icon in the upper-left corner of a docked OneNote window appears with a red, slashed circle over it, the Linked Notes feature is turned off. You can still type notes normally in the docked window, the same way you would in a normal OneNote window.


To restore Linked Notes functionality in your docked OneNote windows or your docked side notes, repeat the steps in the previous procedure, but be sure to select the check box option in step 3. Click OK to save your new preference.

Once Linked Notes functionality has been restored, the red, slashed circle over the link icon will disappear. You can then click the icon for additional options.

If you previously created Linked Notes by opening a docked window and you don’t want to keep these link relationships between your notes and the source files you looked at during your note-taking session, you can delete the links. See “Removing Links from Linked Notes” in the procedure that follows.



Removing Links from Linked Notes

If you no longer need the information that OneNote saves about the source documents and pages for linked notes, or you started a Linked Notes session unintentionally and want to remove the links it created, do the following:

1.
Click the File tab and then click Options.

2.
In the OneNote Options dialog box, click the Advanced category on the left side.

3.
On the right side, scroll down to the Linked Notes heading, and then uncheck the Save Document Snippets and Page Thumbnail for Better Linking to the Right Place in the Document check box.

4.
Click OK to save your changes.

Only use this option if you’re certain that you will no longer need the link relationship between the content in your notes and the source of that content. If you’re changing this setting in a shared notebook, consider how the removal of these links might affect other notebook authors. Removing the links from Linked Notes cannot be undone.


Turning the Scratch-out Gesture On or Off

If you’re using the handwriting features in OneNote 2010 on a Tablet PC or Touchcompatible device, you can choose whether you want to use the scratch-out gesture for removing ink strokes while taking notes.

By default, this option is disabled. To turn it on, do the following:

1.
Click the File tab and then click Options.

2.
In the OneNote Options dialog box, click the Advanced category on the left side.

3.
On the right side, scroll down to the Pen heading, and then uncheck the Disable the Scratch-out Gesture While Inking check box.

4.
Click OK to save your changes.

To disable the options again, repeat the previous steps but click to select the check box in step 3.


Turning Pen Pressure Sensitivity On or Off

If you’re using the handwriting features in OneNote 2010 on a Tablet PC or Touchcompatible device, you can choose whether you want to use variable pen pressure, the way ink might flow when you rest or press the pen on the paper in different ways. Using this feature can give your handwritten or drawn notes a more natural appearance, but it can also increase the file size of your OneNote notebooks.

By default, this option is disabled. To turn it on, do the following:

1.
Click the File tab and then click Options.

2.
In the OneNote Options dialog box, click the Advanced category on the left side.

3.
On the right side, scroll down to the Pen heading and then click to select the Use Pen Pressure Sensitivity (Increases File Size) check box.

4.
Click OK to save your changes.

To disable the options again, repeat the previous steps but be sure to clear the check box in step 3.


Automatically Switching Between Inking, Selecting, Typing, and Panning

If you’re using the handwriting features in OneNote 2010 on a Tablet PC or Touchcompatible device, OneNote automatically switches its selection mechanism when you switch between inking and typing and when selecting and panning content.

If you frequently work with mixed content on a page and you want OneNote to stay in the mode you selected, you can turn this option off by doing the following:

1.
Click the File tab and then click Options.

2.
In the OneNote Options dialog box, click the Advanced category on the left side.

3.
On the right side, scroll down to the Pen heading, and then uncheck the Automatically Switch Between Inking, Selecting, Typing and Panning check box.

4.
Click OK to save your changes.

Figure 2. Using the Panning Hand tool, you can bring other parts of the page into view without accidentally deselecting any handwriting objects on the current page. The Select & Type command at the far left of the Draw tab is activated automatically, unless you turn the automatic mode switching option off.


Enabling or Disabling Text Recognition in Pictures

When you search your notes for a specific word or phrase, OneNote will try to find them not just in typed text but also in pictures that contain the word or phrase (for example, in a scanned business card image). If you don’t want OneNote to recognize text in pictures in your notes, you can disable this feature by doing the following:

1.
Click the File tab and then click Options.

2.
In the OneNote Options dialog box, click the Advanced category on the left side.

3.
On the right side, scroll down to the Text Recognition in Pictures heading and then click to select the Disable Text Recognition in Pictures check box.

4.
Click OK to save your changes.

If you find that searching through unusually large notebooks is happening more slowly than you would like, you can temporarily disable the text recognition feature for your pictures. To restore this feature again later, repeat the previous steps but uncheck the check box in step 3.



Enabling or Disabling Word Recognition in Audio and Video Clips

When you search your notes for a specific word or phrase, OneNote is capable of finding them in the sound recording in audio or video files that you imported in your notes. This is especially useful if you frequently take audio or video notes and need to find specific information that does not appear typed out on a page.

Because this feature takes additional system resources to work, it is turned off by default. If you want to enable it, do the following:

1.
Click the File tab and then click Options.

2.
In the OneNote Options dialog box, click the Audio & Video category on the left side.

3.
On the right side, scroll down to the Audio Search heading and then click to select the Enable Searching Audio and Video Recordings for Words check box.

4.
Click OK to save your changes.

Search performance will be noticeably slower with this option turned on than when you do a normal search. The rate of success for finding spoken words in audio clips or the audio portions of video clips in your notes greatly depends on the quality of the recording, the volume of the speaker, and the amount of ambient noise. If necessary, you can experiment with the audio recording settings and the video recording settings on the Audio & Video page in the OneNote Options dialog box until you find the right configuration for the type of audio you frequently record and that you want to include when searching for spoken words.
