Using the rich-text editor

You can compose your email messages and  Documents pages using either the rich-text editor to format the content on the page or  HTML Source to format your page using HTML tags. You can switch between the two formats to take advantage of the rich-text editor features and to insert tables and spreadsheets.

When you edit using the rich-text editor, the two-row toolbar lets you easily format your page layout. Select font sizes, font faces, text styles, font colors, and background colors. These formatting tools work the same as many word processing tools.

In addition, you can click to add tables, spreadsheets, attachments, and images to your page.

Adding Paragraph Styles

The    icon on the toolbar displays the available paragraph styles. These paragraph styles make it easy to format text and maintain a consistent style within notebook pages. The styles include Normal for most paragraphs, six levels of Headings to identify section titles,  Address to make the text italic, and Preformatted to use when you want to display text in Courier font. These styles cannot be modified, but you can use the editing options to format a style differently - change the font, size, color, etc.

Adding tables to your page

Adding tables to your page is a three-part process. You add a table, configure the table properties and then add content to the table. To add a table, click the table icon, on the toolbar, select Insert Table and then select how many rows and columns should be in the table.

Adding a spreadsheet to your page  

To add a spreadsheet, click the spreadsheet icon, on the toolbar. A six-column spreadsheet is added to the page. Spreadsheets can be used to create  databases to keep track of lists of activities, schedules, tasks to do, etc. The spreadsheet includes basic spreadsheet functionality and a set of predefined functions.

Adding attachments and images to your page

You can upload files that link from the Documents page. Click the paper clip, , or images, icon  and browse to find the file to be uploaded. You are notified if you upload a file that already exists in your Documents or Briefcase.

Linking to a notebook page or to a web pages

You can link to other Documents notebook pages or to an external web URL and  give the link a descriptive title instead of displaying the  URL. Click the icon and enter the page or web URL to link to. If you link to a notebook page, to easily find the correct page you can select from the list that displays your notebooks and pages.

Creating new pages "on-the-fly" and linking to them

You can create a link to a page that does not yet exist in your notebook by typing a page name as a compound word with no spaces.

The page name must include an initial capital letter and a second capitalized letter within the compound. After you type this keyword format, highlight the word and click the icon.

For example, if you type TrainingReport on the page and applied the icon, when you save the page and then click on the TrainingReport link, a new page opens called TrainingReport.

Note: A common name for this behavior is CamelCase words.

Find and Replace

You can quickly find and replace text in your page.

Click and in the Find what field enter the text to find. In the Replace with field enter the replacement text.
