You can apply note flags to paragraphs, drawing canvases, and pictures. You can also apply more than one flag to a single item. For example, you can apply a To Do flag and an Important flag to the same paragraph.
Do one of the following:
Add a note flag
- To display the flags so that you can access them quickly, on the View menu, point to Toolbars, and then click Note Flags.
- Place the insertion point in the paragraph that you want to flag.
- On the Note Flags toolbar, click the note flag you want. For example, to attach a check box to something that you want to follow up on, click Note Flag (To Do) .
You can use up to nine shortcut keys (CTRL+1 through CTRL+9) to apply note flags quickly. Use the arrow buttons in the Customize My Note Flags task pane to associate keyboard shortcuts with note flags that you use most often.
Remove a note flag
- To remove a note flag, place the insertion point in a paragraph, right-click, and then click Remove Note Flags from Selection on the shortcut menu.
You can also quickly remove note flags from a paragraph by pressing CTRL+0.
Note If you use a check box symbol for note flags, you can indicate that you have followed up on the item by clicking the box to place a check mark in it, either in the Note Flags Summary task pane or on the page containing the note flag. To remove the check mark, click the box again.
