    It all depends on what you mean by "permanent." Can you clarify the task you
    have in mind?

    John,
    I have made a note book with pages I never want to change, or atleast not
    very often. Every time I open it all the boxes show up to make changes and I
    seem to accidently change it or move something I dont want to move.Can you
    help? Or is this the wrong kind of program for my needs.

    I'm not sure if I completely understand your intention. If I'm right, you'd
    like to have a sort of read-only page.
    My recommendation would be to password protect the section(s) that contain
    the pages you don't want to change (to do this, right click on section and
    select Password Protect this Section...). Then you will have to enter the
    password in order to open it, so it will be less likely to accidentally
    change the pages.
    Also, backing up the sections (.one files) which contain the pages you want
    to have intact might be a good idea.
    Hope this helps.

    Peter,

    Thank you for your ideas. What I have done is made lists and daily routines
    that will stay the same. Is there away to shut off the boxes that show up to
    add content? That might help me, I look at these through out the day so
    locking them would be a pain.Also it seems like the pages are all different
    sizes and when I "flip through" the note book I have to move the page all the
    way to the left to see the content, which is also a pain.

    If by boxes you think of those that appear when you click anywhere, then I
    don't think so. As soon as you start to type, it will become visible.
    I guess that you occasionally click and type here and there, which consumes
    the space and forces you to scroll back to the left.
    Perhaps you could use Word for the purpose?

    No way.

    A workaround (?):

    Save your "permanent" pages using File -> Save As as *.MHT files.
    They can be opened by IE and look like ON pages (no length problem).
    Then make a TOC page in ON with hyperlinks to all the MHT files.

    Only an idea :)

    If you really want to keep things "static" and no changes be possible,
    the easiest way would be to close all windows except ON and make a
    screen-clipping (Win+S).
    The result will be an image (which is not editable in ON).

    Rainald's idea is good. However, this will not prevent the boxes from
    appearing and forcing you to scroll back if you accidentally click and type.

    If you want to prevent yourself from editing the contents of a notebook, you
    can make it read only. Go to the folder that holds the notebook, right click
    it and change the properties to read only. Make sure the checkbox has a
    check in it.

    Now the contents will be visible but not editable.

    If you do need to edit it, change the property back. Since this is a rare
    scenario for you, this could be a valid work flow.

    I think you meant to make the sections aka *.one files of the notebook
    read only, not the notebook = folder itself; because (at least in
    Windows XP) folders are always read only.
