One of the fun and productive things I’ve done to speed up my tablet pc notetaking in OneNote, was to create a template based in ink on how I prefer to take notes for given meeting types. To do this, I started with a blank template, inked all the basics: title, regarding, attending, and created some ink based vertical separation lines for general notes and important things I needed to follow up on. Once I was happy with the layout, I saved it as a template by going to the New Page drop down, More Template Choices, and chose to save current page as a template. From there, it is now available to me to set as a default template for sections, or apply as a template on-the-fly.
Using David’s tip and my tip from above, the flexibility exists within OneNote to create custom templates for the kind of notetaking you are doing at the moment or for a given template: set one style for taking notes in college, set another for taking notes in church, and another for general meeting notes.
