Major Update From Microsoft For OneNote App

Microsoft is now issuing a major update to its OneNote app for Windows. This is aimed at the Windows 8.1 capabilities and the new generation of touch enabled Windows mini-tablets. If you would like to know what is new in this Microsoft Windows Update, you can read ahead. The latest feature additions to the update are explained below.

Share charm integration

OneNote app now integrates with the Share charm in Windows 8.1 so that the users can share with OneNote from more apps. For instance, the users will be able to share a recipe from Bing Food and Drink. If you have been using Windows 8.1 for some time, you may have noticed that the Share charm has been updated to capture screen shots. This means that you will now be able to share a screenshot with OneNote as well.

Recent notes

If you use multiple notebooks, you may get lost while trying to locate a recent note. This could prove particularly problematic if you are using the OneNote app in multiple devices. For example, you can stick to Meeting Notes and Windows Weekly.

Camera Scan

This new feature lets the users capture documents and other whiteboard pictures with the built-in camera in your computer or device. The feature will automatically crop, rotate, straighten, and remove shadows from the image. You will have to select Camera from the radial menu to use Camera Scan feature.

Page previews

This is a new feature that displays snippets of content from each page, so that the users can see the notes without having to open individual pages. This will help the users to find things quickly, especially if you have an ink or image in a page.

Full screen view

The latest Microsoft Windows Update in OneNote also provides a full screen view, which will be enabled on mini tablets automatically when the user enters a page. On larger devices, the user will be able to access this feature through the Full Screen app bar button.

Ink improvements

The latest OneNote app promises more natural feel for inking, which means that when you write with a stylus it will feel like using a real pen on paper.

Bug Fixes

The new update also includes a lot of bug fixes also.

These are some of the new features in the OneNote app for Windows. If you want to know more on the latest features in the OneNote app, you can contact our technical support team.
