Help Wanted: Organizing Notes in Microsoft Word

Postby Fabs5180 » Mon Sep 05, 2011 4:19 pm

I'm here to ask for a little help. I have been taking my notes in Microsoft Word 2011 in the Notebook Format. I like composing my briefs in separate sections and labeling the tabs on the right hand side. The problem I am running into is navigation through the tabs. As more briefs pile up, it becomes a hassle to get from one tab to another (especially when I want to go from the last tab to the first) because only one or two shows at a time.

Does anyone know an easier way to navigate between sections? Any advice would be appreciated.

Use OneNote. It's vastly superior and easier to organize.

I wrote this article about how to set up your OneNote. It is far superior to Word in regards to note-taking. Hope this helps.

Avoid this waste of a time problem and just hand write your notes
