    I teach the same class 3 times a day, and I want to erase all my annotations quickly between each class. Possible in OneNote?

    If all of your annotations are you're only pen writing and drawing then you can use the lasso tool and select all of your annotations. You can then go to Tools -> Treat selected ink as -> Choose either. This step only selects the writing and not the typed text and you can then hit delete and you're annotations are gone.

    Thanks, ahamilton! It works! Turned out that my docs are usually 2-4 pages long, and my tablet is relatively slow at lasso-scrolling all the way down for 4 pages. So, instead, I used your same trick, only entered "Edit, Select, All" (ctrl-a) instead of using the lasso. THEN I did the "Tool, Treat Ink as..." thing. Worked fine! Thanks for great tip! It’s an odd way to have to do it, so great you can share an otherwise relatively obscure method, to great ends!

    I just read you're problem, opened up OneNote, and played until I figured this out. I'm glad that it worked out for you.
