Quickly combine notes and other elements in OneNote

When you work in OneNote, it’s easy to create lots of separate boxes for your text, images, and whatever other elements you capture or record in this powerful tool.

But do you know the quick way to combine them? No, you don’t need to cut and paste. Simply grab the border of a box, hold down the Shift key, and drag it onto another:

This works in both OneNote 2007 and OneNote 2010.
