Or for those who have mastered these skills but type so fast their fingers don’t always keep up with their brain.
Or for those whose use of OneNote includes many words not generally found in dictionaries…
Let’s talk AutoCorrect, Spell Check and Grammar too.
If there are words you frequently type, save time by adding an abbreviation to AutoCorrect. When you use that abbreviation, OneNote will enter the entire word or words you assigned to the abbreviation.
Let me demonstrate. I type the word QuickBooks often. In AutoCorrect, I added the letters QB and assigned them to the word QuickBooks. Now when I type QB, OneNote will change it automatically to the word QuickBooks.
To do this, go to File>Options>Proofing and click on AutoCorrect.
Once the AutoCorrect window appears, type the abbreviation you want in the “Replace:” box and the text you want OneNote to spell out in the “With:” box.
You can enter phrases as well as words. These AutoCorrect shortcuts will be available in your other Office applications also.
Also under the Proofing options are your rules for Spell Checking and Grammar Checking.
If I want to add a word, let’s say “heartofonenote” to the dictionary so that it is not flagged (underlined with a squiggly red zigzag), I right click on the word and select “add to dictionary”.
Next time I type that word, it will not be flagged.
For both spelling and grammar, suggestions for the flagged word will appear when you right click as well.
Use AutoCorrect, Spell & Grammar Check to be more efficient when using OneNote.
Organization can be easy.
