A fresh update is rolling out to OneNote for Windows 10 for Insiders on both the Fast and SLow rings. For December, the update doesn't contain much, but there are a couple of new features to check out.
The biggest addition in this month's update is a virtual ruler tool to help draw straight lines and measure distance. The tool also includes an angle indicator to get angles just right. The team is also continuing to test speedy search in this version, which OneNote Project Manager William Devereux says will be rolled out to all users soon.
Here's a look at the full, official release notes for this update:
- 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.
If you're a Windows Insider, you should be able to grab OneNote version 17.8827.2012 now to check out all of what's new. Expect these updates to roll out more broadly to everyone later in December.
