The Research Pane in OneNote: Overview

            The Research Pane in OneNote helps you quickly look up information. This pane helps you research a specific word or term. The Research Pane in OneNote can help you check spelling, find an alternate word, or just generally research a word.

            To use the Research Pane in OneNote, select the word or phrase to research. Then click the “Research” button in the “Spelling” group of the “Review” tab in the Ribbon. Doing that launches the “Research” pane at the right-side of OneNote. The term you selected appears in the “Search for” text box. However, you can also enter a new word or phrase, if you wish. Then use the drop-down below the text box to select a research service. You can select “Thesaurus: English” and “Translation” choices, among others. After making a selection, the results appear in the pane below the drop-down.
