ShowWhy can't I apply stationery to a current page in my notebook?

Because many stationery designs in Microsoft Office OneNote 2003 function as page templates, stationery cannot be applied to pages that already contain notes. You can only apply stationery to a new page, which is appended at the end of the current section in your notebook. You can then take notes on this page and move it anywhere in your notebook, or paste existing notes onto the new page.

ShowI don't see any stationery listed in the Stationery task pane.

If the Microsoft Office language settings are set to a non-English language, stationery will not appear in the Stationery task pane. To solve this problem, copy the OneNote stationery files from their default location on your computer (<path>\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Templates\1033\OneNote\Stationery) to the Templates folder located in your user profile folder (<path>\Documents and Settings\<username>\Application Data\Microsoft\Templates). You may need to restart OneNote in order for the change to take effect.

ShowI can't delete some of the stationery from the list.

To delete custom stationery that you've created, right-click its name in the My Stationery list in the Stationery task pane, and then click Delete on the shortcut menu.

To delete any of the stationery that came with OneNote, do the following:

  1. On your computer, open the <path>\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Templates\1033\OneNote\Stationery folder.
  2. Right-click the file with the same name as the stationery category containing the template you want to delete, and then click Open on the shortcut menu.
  3. In OneNote, delete the pages that contain the stationery you want to delete, and then click Save on the File menu.
  4. Exit and restart OneNote.
