Microsoft is rolling out today the December OneNote update to Fast Insiders, which brings a digital ruler and an enhanced search feature to the note-taking app (via Neowin.). The new features are being rolled out gradually, so not everyone will be seeing them at first. Here is the changelog for the 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.

As is routine, you can expect Microsoft to roll out these features to everyone before the end of this month. For now, though, only Windows Insiders will get to bask in the glory of this minor update.
