Microsoft OneNote Ink Support Comes to the Mac
Mac owners can finally use their drawing tablets to annotate OneNote content or directly scribble notes.A new update for OneNote, Microsoft's notetaking app, finally brings ink support to the Mac version of the software. While Apple staunchly refuses to offer its Mac hardware with built-in touchscreens and stylus functionality, users can still scribble in their OneNote notebooks using variety of peripherals. Owners of the super-sized iPad Pro tablet and Apple Pencil have enjoyed inking support since late last year. "Now you can write, draw and highlight with tools on the new Draw tab using your mouse or trackpad," said Scott Shapiro, product marketing manager for Microsoft OneNote, in July 21 announcement. "You can also use your third-party drawing tablet or display that uses a pen or stylus to write, draw and erase—just like pen and paper. And we've added lined pages and grids as a background option to help keep your new handwriting and drawings neat and tidy." For Office 365 subscribers using Windows 10, Microsoft has added new ink effects to OneNote. New rainbow, gold and galaxy ink options join the standard selection of solid ink colors, adding some extra visual flair to notes and drawings.
OneNote Web Clipper, the companion Web browser add-on for Chrome, Safari and Internet Explorer, now includes the ability to import videos from YouTube and Vimeo. Also new is a preview mode that allows users to change the titles of their Web clippings as they capture them and shows those clippings as they will appear when they revisit them.
