After a short period of testing with Fast ring Insiders, the December update for OneNote is now rolling out to everyone. There aren't a large number of features included in this update, but it does contain some useful additions.
The most notable new feature in the December OneNote update is the addition of a virtual ruler tool. The tool will help you draw straight lines and measure distance. It's also equipped with an angle indicator so you can get angles just right. The OneNote Team has also continued work on speedy search in this update.
Here's a look at the full release notes issued while this release was in testing:
- Set things straight: On touch screens, use the virtual ruler on the Draw tab to draw straight lines and measure distance. Rotate to a specific angle with the help of the angle indicator.
- Speedy search: Search just got faster! Your search results now appear instantaneously, making it easier to get back to your notes.
Everyone should be able to grab the latest OneNote update from the Microsoft Store now. Keep in mind that, as pointed out by Microsoft's Product Manager Lead for OneNote, William Devereux, individual features are rolling out over time. So if you don't see the new features immediately after updating, sit tight.
