How to import a Microsoft Word 2010 document in OneNote 2010

If you want to import a Microsoft Word 2010 document in OneNote you will have several options.

 

Insert a print out of the document
Just drag and drop your Microsoft Word 2010 document on your OneNote 2010 page and choose [Insert the file as printout so I can add notes to it]

In most cases I choose this option, because you can immediately the content of the document in the correct format and still be able to edit the document in it’s original format:

    The option for “insert a link to the original file” is not appearing on my Surface Pro 2 running onenote 2010. It does show on my laptop running Windows 7, onenote 2010. Any advice?

    I have hundreds of WORD 2010 files. I can search them quickly for key words. They are organized in folders. If I used Option 1 above (insert a file as a printout) would I still be able to search for keywords. Is the editing of a printout as easy as using WORD 2010. I can see advantages of OneNote, but I like my search index on WIN7. I have SSD drives for WIN7 and SATA2 drive for data.
