3. Moving a Picture to Another Place on a Page

After you’ve inserted a picture into your notes, it’s not stuck there. You can freely move it around on the page to the location you want.

To move a picture around on the page, follow these steps:

1.
Click the picture you want to move.

2.
Move the mouse pointer over the middle of the selected picture until the pointer changes to a white, four-headed arrow (see Figure 2).

Figure 2. The white, four-headed arrow in the middle of a picture prompts you to move the picture in any direction on the page, either by clicking and dragging the mouse or by using the directional arrow keys on your keyboard.


3.
Click the left mouse button and then drag the image to its new location on the page.

4.
Release the mouse button when the picture appears where you want it.

If a picture is pasted outside of a notes container, you can move it with more precision by using the directional arrow keys on your keyboard instead of dragging with the mouse.

To move a picture with more precision, follow these steps:

1.
Make sure the inserted picture is not inside of a notes container.
2.
Click to select the picture, right-click it, and then click Move on the shortcut menu. (If the Move command is not available on the menu, the picture is still inside of a notes container.)

3.
When the handles around the image have disappeared, look for a white, four-headed arrow to appear over the middle of the selected picture. Use any of the four directional arrow keys on your keyboard to move the picture to its new location on the page.

4.
If your finger slips and you move the image too far off the page, press the Esc key and try again. When the picture appears where you want it, press the Enter key to accept the new location.

When moving objects such as pictures or screen clippings around on a page, you’ll notice a slight hesitation every 12 pixels or so, as OneNote snaps the selected object to an invisible grid. This is a feature often found in page layout and web design programs to help a page author align multiple objects more easily. In the case of OneNote, it can be helpful to more precisely align multiple images with each other or to your notes’ text. However, if you prefer not to use the Snap to Grid feature, you can override it by holding the Alt key on your keyboard whenever you drag an object around on the page with your mouse.

Note that this trick also works with notes containers, giving you full control over alignment of everything on your pages. If you don’t like the Snap to Grid feature, you can add its command button to the ribbon for an easier way to turn it off. 


4. Rotating Pictures on a Page

Continuing in the vein of features borrowed from page layout programs like Microsoft Publisher and Adobe InDesign, OneNote also offers the ability to quickly rotate imported pictures and screen clippings.

This is most useful when importing scanned images or cell phone camera pictures that may appear sideways or upside down when first imported. A simple click of a button or two and you’ll have it the way you want it.

To rotate a picture on the current page, do the following:

1.
Click the picture you want to rotate.

2.
On the ribbon, click the Draw tab and then, in the Edit group, click Rotate.

3.
On the pop-up menu that appears, choose the rotation you want:

  • Click Rotate Right 90° to rotate the selected image clockwise by 90 degrees. Click this command up to three times to achieve the correct amount of rotation you want.

  • Click Rotate Left 90° to rotate the selected image counterclockwise by 90 degrees. Click this command up to three times to achieve the correct amount of rotation you want.

  • Click Flip Horizontal to create a horizontal mirror image of the selected picture.

  • Click Flip Vertical to create a vertical mirror image of the selected picture.

Each of the four rotation commands can be used in any combination with any of the other commands to achieve the result you want. For example, if an imported picture on your page is upside down and backward, you can click the Flip Vertical command and then the Flip Horizontal command to make the picture appear correctly. As always, you can press the Crtl+Z command once to undo the last action or multiple times to undo several of the last actions.


I should point out that OneNote 2010 does not offer the ability to freely rotate a selected image or object by any degree. If you need that kind of precision, it’s best to import the original picture into an image-editing program like Adobe Photoshop and rotate it there. You can then save and import the result back into OneNote.
