OneNote's November update is headed out to Fast ring Insiders

It's the start of another month, which means Microsoft is testing another update to OneNote for Windows 10 with Fast ring Insiders. For November, there's not much in the way of big new features, but there are a couple of handy new bits to check out.

The most interesting new change is that searching is now nearly instant. OneNote now indexes your notebooks significantly speeding up the search process. This update also includes support for tilting the new Surface Pen to shade while inking. Here's the official look at what's new:

  • Speedy search: Search just got faster! Your search results now appear instantaneously, making it easier to get back to your notes.
  • Tilt to shade: Use your new Surface Pen and the pencil tool to write or sketch ideas. Tilt the stylus to do shading, just like a real pencil.

If you're a Windows Insider, you should be able to check out the latest additions to version 17.8730.2008 of OneNote now. Everyone else should expect this update to roll out more broadly later in November.
