Better way to add items tagged with the To-Do tag?

    I'm using OneNote 2007 SP2.

    Frequently I am adding items to a list that all have the To-Do tag (the checkbox). Is
    there any way to enter these items naturally, such that hitting the Enter key and starting
    a new line/item automatically adds the checkbox tag? Currently I have to hit Control-1 or
    select the "Tag" button on the toolbar to make the current line have the tag.

    Thanks,
    Chuck

    There is no way to get the tags to work like bullets (which is what it sounds
    like you want). interesting suggestion, though. I'll pass it on.

    Here's a tip to save a few keystrokes:
    1. Go ahead and type all the lines you want
    2. End each line with Enter (Sounds like you already do this)
    3. Once done, type CTRL+A twice to select all the lines
    4. CTRL+1 will now apply a tag to each line individually

    I know it's not perfect, but it may save a little time in the long run.
