Big OneNote for Windows 10 update adds smattering of useful features

A fairly big update to the OneNote app for Windows 10 is now available, ushering in a smattering of handy new features across the board. This update manages to pack in some new options for manipulating your notes, along with page versions, a redo button, and more.

Here's a look at all of what's new in version 17.8241.5759 of the UWP OneNote app for Windows 10:

  • Print directly to OneNote: Send anything on your computer right to OneNote. Install the Send to OneNote app from the Store and then select "Send to OneNote" when printing a file.
  • Insert meeting details: Choose Insert > Meeting Details and choose an Outlook meeting.
  • Page versions: Travel back through time to recover older versions of your pages. Right-click on any page, and choose Page Versions.
  • Select multiple pages: Use Ctrl+Click or Shift+Click to select multiple pages, and then move, copy, or delete them all at once.
  • Fast track moving or copying pages: Right-click a page and choose to cut or copy it, then paste it in your new destination.
  • Check spelling in another language: If you create notes that contain text in different languages, it's now possible to check the spelling in each of the languages. Right-click the selected text, and choose Set Language to specify the language to use when you check spelling on your selected text.
  • Correct that accidental Undo: Redo something you had undone. It's like it never happened.

In addition to the above, as noted by OnMSFT, this update also brings the option to open multiple instances of OneNote. This is already available with the desktop version, but it's new to the UWP Windows 10 app. To get started, you'll have to turn on "Experimental Features" in the Options menu, at which point a "New Windows" option will be available in the "View" menu.

In any case, you can check out all of these new features by grabbing the latest update to OneNote from the Windows Store now.
