    Does anyone know how (if possible) to achieve the exact same effect with fonts in OneNote 2010 ? The fonts of the MAIN NAVIGATION BAR (on the left), The MENU ITEMS, the NOTEBOOK SECTION TABS, the SELECTION GROUP and the PAGE NAVIGATION (on right). Basically everything except the actual note taking area.
