If you are an Outlook user, then perhaps you have created a signature that is added to the end of the emails you write. Signatures are helpful, consistent ways to provide your email contacts with information about you.
But you may not always need to include signatures on every email that you write, such as those which are sent from OneNote. So if you have discovered that OneNote is automatically adding a signature to the end of emails that you send from the program, you may be looking for a way to stop it. Our article below will show you where to find and modify that setting so that you can either stop including the signature, or change it to something different.
How to Stop Including a Signature in OneNote 2013
The steps in this guide will assume that you are currently using OneNote to send emails or create Web pages, and that OneNote is automatically appending a signature to those items. Our tutorial below is going to show you how to either remove this signature completely, or change it to something different.
Step 1: Open OneNote 2013.
Step 2: Click the File tab at the top-left corner of the window.
Step 3: Click the Options button at the bottom of the column on the left side of the window.
Step 4: Click the Advanced button in the left column of the OneNote Options window.
Step 5: Scroll down to the Email sent from OneNote section, then click the box to the left of Add the following signature to emails and Web pages created in OneNote to remove the check mark. If you would rather change the signature instead of deleting it, then edit the signature text to suit your needs. One finished, click the OK button at the bottom of the window.
Note that you don’t have as many formatting options here as in some other applications, which can make it difficult if you want to use something like a cursive font in your signature.
One of the more frustrating behaviors in OneNote 2013 is when you copy and paste something from a Web page and OneNote includes a link to that page. This article will show you where to find and disable that setting so that you are only pasting the information that you want.
