Link to the Notebook
Sorry, I just saw the Upload Limits for Bibleworks so my file wasn't attached. Since I manage my Church's website I placed them on it. You can download the file Here (http://nplainfieldbaptist.org/Files/...orks_Notes.zip). Hopefully I got it all that time :-)
Thanks for all your work. This is great.
I notice that when OneNote opens the Bibleworks Notebook to the book of the Bible, the chapters (aka sections) are not in numeric order. I tried changing the section numbers to 01, 02, etc to fix that, but then BW didn't recognize the chapter numbers anymore.
The other thing I noticed is that the first time I open a book, it always goes to the first section, regardless of which chapter I want. Once the book is open, this isn't a problem.
Is this peculiar to my set up, or have you encountered this, too?

I'm fairly certain the tabs will be in the right order when you open the files. If you check this out could you post back a confirmation that the tabs are in numerical order. I would not open this file overtop of your other one unless you havn't started taking notes yet.
As far as the second issue, I do not have this problem. The first time I open a book from a Bibleworks link it goes to the right chapter. What version of OneNote are you using? I'm using 2007. Also you can try going to My Docs>OneNote NoteBooks, right clicking on the Notebook that contains the folders and selecting "Open as notebook in OneNote."
This may be a little off topic, but does anyone have a recommendation for the best way to get started with OneNote. I have it with my Office 2007 suite but have never used it. Ideally I'd like a manual a few steps up from the "For Dummies" series.
I guess the best thing to do here is to tell of the benefits to OneNote.

Whenever your thumbdrive is outside your computer, it stores everything in a cache. When its plugged in everything syncs automatically. So save the notebook on one computer. then go to that folder, right click, and select "Open as OneNote Notebook" on the second computer and anytime you plug the flashdrive into either computer, everything is synced.
2) No saving - All you have to do is open OneNote, type away, close OneNote. You never have to save anything
3) Search function - This is probably the best feature. Say you want to scan a page into onenote from a paper book you have. OneNote searches the text of the picture and when you do a search, it returns and highlights the results. In fact, say you have an audio sermon. Put it into OneNote. you can tell OneNote to search for words in an audio file and it too will turn up in a search. I must admit, I havn't tried the audio feature, but the text works well.
4) Organization, or lack thereof - be as organized or disorganized as you want. you can save everything to your unfiled notebook and use the search to find it. Or seperate everything logically into Notebooks, Subsections, Sections, Pages, Subpages and paragraphs. Its all up to you.
5) HyperLinking - Everything can be hyperlinked to. Say you want to reference another sheet in another notebook. Go to that sheet, right click, select "copy Hyperlink" go to the other sheet and then paste. Its just like any other hyperlink, so you can add it you Bibleworks notes, Word document, anything.
6) email a sheet as PDF - easy to share with others.
7) Tagging - This is actually a cool feature I don't use enough. Say your working in OneNote studying a passage and you think of something that needs to be done. You don't want to loss your train of thought, but you really want to get this done. One the same sheet type out your idea. Then go up to the toolbar, or use the keyboard shortcut, and tag it as a todo item. When your ready to get those side thought tasks done simply filter out all the todo tags. It will pull up all your tags from all your notebooks. Check them off to mark them complete. You can even add it to your outlook todo list, or calendar. You can also tag things as questions, things for your blog,...
8) Screen clippings - Vista does have a screen clipping tool included, but OneNote has screen clipping bult in too. Say you want to quickly capture a picture of something on your screen. Hit the Window Key + S, select the area you want to clip, and the picture will be added to a page in your Unfiled Notebook. And as mentioned earlier, the text will be searchable. When your ready to file it, just drag and drop it to where you want it.
9) Syncing with Windows mobile - I must admit I think they really blew it with this feature. They could have done a much better, job. But you can have some of your notes sync with Windows Mobile. Its built more so that you can take notes in OneNote Mobile, and then have them accessable in your notebooks. But hey, its only the second generation of the program.
10) Pin the Window - you can pin the OneNote window to stay on top. That way you can keep it always visible while using Bibleworks.
I could go on. I'll start another post to give a little bit of an idea of how to use it.
Actually after typing all this I found a video that should give you a good idea of OneNote.
OneNote is actually a very easy program to use, and very flexible to your needs. I would say its the most flexible program Microsoft has ever made, and yet I would also say its probably the easiest (though I will always have a special love for Excel)
Open the program, place your curser anywhere on the page, and just start typing. Just like word you can go to the toolbar and make it a bulleted or numbered list.
But say you want to keep your personal and business notes seperate. Great! just create two notebooks. One called personal and one called Business. Just go up to the toolbar, hit the arrow next to "New" and select Notebook. You can create templates but usually you'll just want to start a blank notebook, give it a title, usually to start with you'll only use it on your current computer, and your notebook is made.
So your keeping your personal and business notes seperate, and lets say you've also created a notebook for school. But you don't want your Ecclesiology and Escatology notes combined! This is where I would use a section or section group. think of section groups like the little tabs in a 5 section notebook. click on that new button (the default is section, you can also creat a section by clicking the arrow.)Give the new tab a name.
Notebooks are listed on the left, Sections along the top. But what about the page of each of your subjects? You'll want a page for each day's notes. Thats along the right. Just click "new Page" put your title in the dotted circle, and type your notes. You can also create sub pages. maybe you want to have a page labeled notes, and a subpage labeled homework.
If your in a hurry and don't feel like finding the right page, just click the Window Key + N. This will create a new page for you to write on in your unfiled notebook. You don't have to have OneNote open. Then you can file it away when your ready.
That's a quick and dirty overview of onenote, but as posted in the previous post, there is much more to it, if you choose to use it.
The new file was not in numeric order, so I'll just manually do that, as you suggested. A small thing, given how much work you've already put into it for us.
I'm using version 2007 also. A message comes up asking if I want to open the notebook or the section. If I click to open the notebook it opens at section one regardless of my chapter. If I click to open the section, it opens only the section, not the notebook.
This is not a deal-killer for me. I will still find this a most usable tool, and I thank you.
For Tom, the OneNote program comes with a notebook entitled "OneNote 2007 Guide" that has a lot of useful helps in it.
Something that was helpful to me in moving the tabs was to view all notebooks (Lower Left Corner). you can see more of the tabs so you don't have to scroll as much. it went pretty quick until I got to Psalms. I was scrolling everything down to the bottom until I got to Psalm 125. Then I realized I could hold down the left mouse button, move the tab down one or two spots, and then use the scroll wheel to take it the rest of the way down. It sped up a bit after that. Hope that helps!
