  1. awesome post! its so convenient! 🙂
    one thing that i’m still confused on is Noteone able to apply a template on pages where we had already typed before we thought about applying for a template onto it. I’m pretty sure with powerpoint we are able to apply a template background to it even after we finished typing everything for it. Is it possible with Note one?

  2. Recently switched out my hard drive. On old HD, am trying to locate my folder of OneNote templates that I set up. Have found the Stationery folders that are original to OneNote, (C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Templates\1033\ONENOTE\12\Stationery) but can’t find mine! Any suggestions where that folder would be hiding?
    Any help would be appreciated!
