Create a summary for a single tag in OneNote

Hello,

Is there a way to create a summary in OneNote (2013) which includes only those items with a single tag?

I realize there is a "Find Tags" function and once there, a button to "Create Summary Page". However, that displays every item with every tag.

I'd like to find a way to get the same summary result but only for a single tag.

Thanks

After selecting the "Find Tags" function, you can collapse all of the tags you don't want to include in your summary using the arrow to the right of the tag grouping.

OneNote Collapse Group
Selecting "Create Summary Page" will then only include the tags you've left expanded.

Thanks for the reply.

"…you can collapse all of the tags you don't want to include in your summary using the arrow to the left of the tag grouping."
I assume you mean the small drop-down arrows to the right as I cannot see any arrows to the left.

Your suggestion is very helpful and exactly what I'm looking for but now I am wondering if there is a way to collapse all of the groups in a single step and then simply open the one I want to summarize. Otherwise, when a large number of tags are present — as in my case, the time required to manually collapse each of them is counterproductive.

Sorry, I did mean the right side :) I'll take a look and see if I can find a way to collapse them all at once but nothing is jumping out at me.

I did a bit more research and it seems that the option to Collapse All or search for specific tags is widely sought after by other OneNote users, but not currently supported. Here are a few of the requests with no responses from Microsoft ...

Thanks for the research time & efforts Sina May. I've also been looking for a solution and in the process, posted the issue in the Onetastic blog. You likely know this already but Onetastic is a Add-in app for OneNote. I've got it installed for some other functionality but I'm hopeful that the topic of this thread is or could be included.

It looks like this macro gets kind of close: http://omeratay.com/onetastic/?r=macroland&id=11FF397BC0B24846AD3A82A38886A0C7 

The macro has a select list of pre-defined tags, but you can edit it to add your own
