Recently my organization update to Windows 10 and Office 365 (desktop) from Office 2010.
I use OneNote to keep track of my meeting notes. I have a notebook for the year (i.e. "2019 Meetings") and create one page per week (e.g. "2019 - Week 39 (October)") and I append notes to the bottom of a page throughout the week.
Before upgrade in OneNote 2010, when I would select the "Meeting Details" button, then the meeting, OneNote would place the meeting details where my cursor was located (usually at the bottom of the current page, unless I made a mistake and had my cursor someplace else).
In OneNote 365 (desktop) when I follow the same procedure I get a dialog box asking:
"The selected page is already associated with a meeting. Please choose one of the options below. If you continue adding, no content will be deleted from the page." with the options to "Continue Adding", "Create a New Page" or "Cancel".
I don't want to create a new page. I find having one page per week (or even one page per day) is more efficient than having one page per meeting. If I chose the "Continue Adding" button, OneNote will insert the meeting information at the top of the current page, which means I need to scroll to the top of the page, cut the details, scroll to the bottom of the page and paste the details.
I prefer the behaviour of OneNote 2010 - no scrolling or cut/paste.
Is this a setting that I can change?
