The practice files for these tasks are located in the iPadOfficeSBS\Ch11 folder.

Create, open, and close notebooks and configure storage structure

Start OneNote, and then perform the following tasks:

  1. Create a new notebook in your OneDrive storage location and name it My Notes.
  2. Without closing your new notebook, open the StoreNotes notebook from the practice file folder.
  3. Close the StoreNotes notebook, and then reopen it from the list of recent notebooks.
  4. Switch to the My Notes notebook.
  5. Rename the Welcome section as Practice One, and create a new section named Practice Two. Move the Practice Two section so it immediately follows the Practice One section.
  6. In the Practice Two section, rename the untitled page as Page 1 and create a new page named Page 2.
  7. Make Page 2 a subpage of Page 1, and rename it as Subpage One.
  8. Exit OneNote without closing the open notebooks.

Add information to notebooks

Open the StoreNotes notebook if it isn’t already open, and then perform the following tasks:

  1. In the Add Content section, on the Text Practice page, enter the following text just below the page title: Taking notes on the iPad is easy. Keep track of important information, and access it from anywhere.
  2. Tap halfway down the page to create a second note container. In the new note container, insert a 2-by-2 table.
  3. In the first column of the table, enter January in the first row and February in the second row. In the second column, enter Garnet in the first row and Amethyst in the second row.
  4. Add a third row to the end of the table. In the new row, enter March in the first column and Aquamarine in the second column.
  5. Insert a row at the top of the table. In the new row, enter Month in the first column and Birthstone in the second column. Select the two cells, and then apply bold formatting to the words so they look like column headings.
  6. Switch to the Image Practice page. From within OneNote, use your iPad and the Office Lens utility to capture an image of something (such as a notepad, whiteboard, or sticky note) that has handwritten text on it.
  7. Enhance and crop the image by using Office Lens. Insert the modified image below the title of the Image Practice page.
  8. Exit OneNote without closing the open notebooks.

Manage pages and sections

Open the StoreNotes notebook if it isn’t already open, and open the MoveNotes notebook. Then perform the following tasks:

  1. Display the StoreNotes notebook.
  2. In the My Pages section of the notebook, change the color of Page A to any shade of blue. Then change the color of Page B to any shade of green.
  3. Move Page C above Page A.
  4. Move Page A and Page B to the Practice Pages section of the notebook.
  5. Move the Practice Pages section so that it precedes the My Pages section.
  6. Move the Practice Pages section to the MoveNotes notebook. Then create a copy of the Practice Pages section in the StoreNotes notebook.
  7. In the StoreNotes notebook, delete the My Pages section. Then in the Practice Pages section, delete Page B.
  8. Exit OneNote without closing the open notebooks.
