    Hey guys,

    I purchased MS Office 2007 recently. Mostly for the fact that I am just
    going back to school after a 10 year break.

    In my English class we have to take "Cornell Notes" I would like to be able
    to type up these notes in MS One Note so I can have them nice and organized
    and print them out when I need them. However I have been unable to find a
    good template and have searched all over the internet. All I found was one
    file in MS online that spoke about what "Cornell Notes are".

    I tried to create my own template but failed miserably as I am not familiar
    with the program enough.

    Is anyone out there knowledgeable enough with the program that can help me
    create a template?

    Thanks in advance.

    There are many OneNote 2007 and Word 2007 Cornell Notes Templates on the
    MS Office Templates website,

    I have looked through those templates before. There are only 2 listed for
    Microsoft One Note. The first one is for One Note 2003 and for some reason I
    can not edit it, or change the color borders. The second one for One Note
    2007 is a little bit better but the black lines only go down half of the
    page. I try and move it to go down to the bottom of the page but I can never
    keep the line straight.

    My only other problem is that When I am typing something on the Left Side of
    the page... And then I switch to the right side, how do I make sure that I
    am on the same line? I know that sounds weird, but each side of the page is
    setup almost like it's own cell.

    Thank you for any and all help.

    Tip:

    Hold down the shift key during drawing the line.

    I tried to hold down Shift, but the line is still able to move.

    Here's and easy way to get a 'blank' Cornell Note Page in One Note format:

    1. Go to www.solida.net/downloads

    2. Scroll down to the bottom of the page; you will see a blank Cornell Note
    page in Adobe Acrobat (.pdf) format.
    3. Download the document and open it using Adobe Acrobat reader(free on the
    Web)
    4. Go to 'File'; 'Print'
    5. In the printer selection box, click the small drop down arrow on the
    right.
    6. Select, 'Send to One Note'
    7. The document is automatically conveted into a One Note Document

    You'll be able to type information into the doucment, print it, edit it, etc

    Hi Sharon,

    That sounded great, except I do not have an option under: File > Print that
    says "Send to One Note" I have the following options:

    * Fax
    *HP Printer
    *MS XPS image writer

    Any ideas?

    Hi Brian,

    You'll need to set up a One Note Printer. These instructions work for
    Windows XP, Windows Vista, or Windows 7 operation systems:

    1. Install a generic printer driver in Windows XP.
    To do this, follow these steps:

    Click Start, and then click Printers and Faxes.
    Under Printer Tasks, click Add a printer.
    Click Next on the first page of the Add Printer Wizard.
    Click to select the Local printer attached to this computer option, make
    sure that the Automatically detect and install my Plug and Play printer check
    box is cleared, and then click Next.
    Click to select the Using the following port option, select the appropriate
    port, and then click Next. For example, you can select LPT1.
    On the Manufacturers list, select Generic, select Generic / Text Only under
    Printers, and then click Next.
    Click to select the Yes option for Do you want to use this printer as the
    default printer, and then click Next.
    Click to select the Do not share this printer option, and then click Next.
    Click to select the No option for Do you want to print a test page, click
    Next, and then click Finish.

    2. Configure the generic printer for OneNote.
    To do this, follow these steps:

    Click Start, and then click Printers and Faxes.
    Right-click the Generic / Text only printer, and then click Properties.
    Click the Ports tab, and then click to select the Send To Microsoft OneNote
    Port check box.
    Click the Advanced Tab, select Send to Microsoft OneNote Driver in the
    Driver list, and then click Print Processor.
    Under Print processor, select OneNotePrint2007, select RAW under Default
    data type, and then click OK.
    Click the General tab, change the name of the printer to Send To OneNote
    2007, and then click OK.

    Then you should have a One Note Printer in the 'drop down' box that you can
    'send' documents to,
