Typing double brackets to create a link has another purpose you might benefit from: creating a “broken” link (a dashed blue line instead of a solid line) that serves as a reminder to create a page in OneNote dedicated to a particular topic.
For instance, let’s assume you work in sales and are in the habit of writing a brief summary after visiting each client. Creating broken links within that summary can serve as a reminder of products you need to research for that client before visiting him/her again (see Figure E).
While reviewing your client’s summary in OneNote, all you’ll have to do is click the broken link and OneNote will create a new page for you, with the broken link’s name serving as the page’s title. As you complete and save the new page, the broken link becomes an active link that serves as an easy reference you can access the next time you visit your client and share the updated information you researched for him/her.
