OneNote app for Windows 8.1/RT updated with long awaited printing support and more

Owners of Windows 8.1 and Windows RT devices can now download a new version of Microsoft's OneNote note taking app from the Windows Store that finally adds printing support, along with a number of other new features.

Printing notes should arguably have been added to the OneNote app long before today, but at least it's now available for Windows 8.1 and RT users. Microsoft says, "With this update, it's a breeze to print your notes, and OneNote supports all of the features you'd expect including beautiful full color page previews, portrait and landscape orientations, multiple copies, duplex printing, and more."

In addition, the OneNote update now allows for file attachment support so users can save documents in their notes. Also, the app now allows for PDF printouts, with Microsoft saying, " ... students can read slides, assignments, and more directly in OneNote and annotate them with ink or text."

Finally, there's a new highlighter tool, with Microsoft saying, "Highlighter is now included in the radial menu next to the four pen styles, and you can customize the color and thickness to your liking. This feature is especially useful when combined with PDF printouts." What do you think of these improvements that have been made to the OneNote Windows 8.1/RT app?
