    I am having a few problems in Onenote on a tabletPC w/ windows 7 pro x64:

    1) I want to have new pages named on the tabs the same as what i ink in the
    title box. all of my new pages are just coming up "Untitled"

    2)my text recognition doesn't seem to be working...is there a setting and is
    that why nothing is coming up for my page titles when they are inked?

    3)Is there any way to have all sub-pages collapse under the main page so
    that only the main page is visible until expanded?

    4) I have seen PowerToys mentioned around. what are they?

    5)Is there any way to have a universal template for an entire notebook,
    i.e. a school notebook with an engineering green grid paper look for the
    template.

    Thanks for any help and advice.

    Craig,

    I can respond to a couple of your points.

    3) I don't have an answer for this one but I'm anxious to hear any responses that you get as I would love to have the same ability.

    4) The PowerToys are a great set of add-in pieces developed by John Guin (@ONUberAlles) and other various developers. If you search in Google for OneNote PowerToys you will find a number of links. There are many VERY useful tools here.

    5) I'm not sure about default templates for the notebook, I know you can default a template for a section.

    I hope that helps.

    "collapse sub page groups" is a new feature for ON 2010

    I've looked into the engineering notebook template for a while but can't get
    one to work correctly.
    (There's probably a blog article in here, now that I think of it...)

    Anyway, scanning or getting an image of a blank engineering page is
    relatively easy. The hard part is keeping the grid size intact. Suppose the
    grid size is 1/4" - this works fine on my machine. But when I view the same
    page on another machine with a different video resolution, the grid is not
    guaranteed to be 1/4" any more.

    What you can do for your machine is this:
    1. Scan, find or otherwise make the image you want to use for a page in an
    engineering notebook.
    2. Make the size "look correct" on your machine.
    3. Copy the image to the clipboard.
    4. Paste onto a new clean OneNote page.
    5. Right click it and set as background.

    Now you can make a template out of this page and use it!

    Alternately, you can use the template maker powertoy at
    http://blogs.msdn.com/johnguin/archive/2007/12/13/template-manager-powertoy-for-onenote-2007.aspx to create templates.

    My biggest problem right now is that when i got this new tablet, it had vista
    64 bit, and the text recognition in OneNote worked great. when i entered ink
    in the title box, it became the title of the page. all was good in the world.
    I upgrade to Windows 7, and text recognition in ON is gone...completely. I
    can select inked notes, but the convert handwriting to text button does
    nothing. it is frustrating.
    Thanks for any help.
