Formatting text

Take a look at the Basic Text group on the Home tab to see the different tools for formatting text in notes. Do these tools look familiar? If you have any experience with Microsoft Word, you probably recognize the Font menu, Font Size menu, and Font Style buttons (Bold, Italic, Underline, and Strikethrough). The formatting tools and their shortcut keys work the same way in OneNote and Word.

OneNote gives you these methods to format text:
