Using OneNote for Recording Scripts

One of the ways I use OneNote is to manage my recording scripts for podcasts.  While it’s not particularly complicated to type up a script or notes and then reference them during the recording process, there is a particular feature I fall back on for keeping things clean and distraction-free.

Before I get ready to record, I compress my OneNote 2016 window down to about 1/3 of my screen and then use the Full Page View arrows to hide all the sections, pages, and ribbons. This allows me to focus on my content and not wander off because of navigation errors or other unplanned clicks.

It’s a simple enough step but it has become almost second nature as part of my recording workflow. OneNote is loaded with these types of little features that, when explored, can make a significant improvement in your productivity no matter what you’re doing.
