How do you direct someone to a specific spot in your OneNote

OneNote, as well as I can gauge from the number of tweets I see tagged with it, has been undergoing a marked increase in user base.
So, I've been trying to mirror what folks do with GoogleDocs and show how it's done with OneNote.

To wit... "How do you direct someone to a specific spot in your Google Doc?"

How do you direct someone to a specific place in your OneNote notebook?  The thing about OneNote is, of course, that it can contain anything -- text, images, audio, video, files, links -- so that you can really direct folks to the exact content you want.  Objects in OneNote are in containers (you see them as light grey lines when you select them) and so when you RIGHT-CLICK on the object, you get the option to "Copy Link to Paragraph"

Paste that link in an email or on the web ... if they have the OneNote Notebook already syncing to their computer, it will open on their computer.

So, this link: onenote:https://d.docs.live.net/4ac891949a1871f1/GF%20Pitch/ONB.one#OneNote%20Binder&section-id={880DB613-1883-4202-BA87-B363571C0092}&page-id={9BD7FAAC-5155-4275-9A7E-12F7815C3213}&object-id={0EBA2678-D60E-0DE7-24DA-4D522095A63A}&2F 
 would open the page you see below and move your screen to the inked note "This is before winter", which is about halfway down a page below a table and next to a picture ... if you had privileges to this OneNote :)   And, it doesn't look like that above link when you paste it into a document or email.  Microsoft formats it so it looks like this: This is before winter  (Web view)



We use this a lot for students, linking directly to their homework or the rubric.
