Post-it note like tool for OneNote

    When pasting an actual word or pdf file in OneNote for annotation, is there a
    way to insert someting similar to a post-it note so that the comments stand
    out and don't get lost in the original text? Acrobat has such a feature and I
    wonder if it is available either in ON 2007 or 2010.

    Many thanks.

    Hi there,

    You can insert "flags" in OneNote to help make them stand out.

    To add a note tag:

    1. Place the pointer in the paragraph that you want to tag.
    2. On the Standard toolbar, click the arrow next to the Tags button, and then click the note tag you want.
    I hope this helps!

    OneNote 2010 has "Linked Notes," which should meet your needs. You can read
    about how it works with PowerPoint at
    http://blogs.msdn.com/johnguin/arch...-note-taking-with-onenote-and-powerpoint.aspx

    It also lets you take notes on OneNote pages so that you can take notes on
    anything you print to OneNote, for instance.

    Thanks for the tip. I still feel OneNote could do with something like the
    yellow comments in Acrobat. They are free standing and can be moved about
    freely and are very useful for annotation as you can superimpose them on any
    other text.
