To Create a Table
You can easily create a table in OneNote simply by pressing the Tab key after a word.
This will place the word just typed into a cell and create another cell in the row.
Each time you press Tab another cell will be added to the row; also known as creating a new column. To create a new row, hit the Enter key at the end of a row.

Some useful table shortcuts are:list1.PNG

Creating Bulleted and Numbered Lists

Microsoft Office OneNote will automatically start a bulleted list when you type an asterisk (shift+8) and a space. Now you simply type some text and press enter. OneNote then creates your next bullet in the list.

OneNote will also automatically start a numbered list when you type 1. and a space. To create a second line, press ENTER. You can also press the TAB key to indent a line of text, or use the BACKSPACE key to undo the automatic formatting.
