Highlight Information in OneNote on an iPad

OneNote is organized into Notebooks, Sections, and Pages. On different pages, you may be able to use the highlighting tool to highlight important text.

 

1. Tap the OneNote app on your iPad  
2. OneNote opens to where you were when you closed the app.

NOTE: If you are not on the Notebook you want, tap the arrow to the left of the Notebook name

 
3. Tap the Notebook you want to open

4. Tap the section

5. Tap the page where you want to highlight notes.

6. Tap the Draw tab at the top of the page

7. Tap the highlighter and tap the color you want to use

8. Drag your finger across the text that you want to highlight

NOTE: You are not able to highlight on a read-only page

 
9. The information you add to the page is saved automatically. The OneNote app doesn’t have a Save button. Instead, OneNote will automatically save your information to OneNote Online.

NOTE: You may see "Syncing" at the top of the OneNote Notebook next to the Notebook name. When the Notebook is syncing, it is saving the information to OneNote Online.
