Home » News » Microsoft Office November Updates are here with enhanced ink support

A few days ago, Microsoft’s Office Insider updates came to the OneNote app and now the company is bringing some brand new goodies for its other Office apps.

Microsoft pushed out a nice update for its OneNote app for Windows 10 PC for Fast Ring Insiders, and it included a few minor additions to the app in the November update.

The update searching in OneNote notebooks was significantly improved, and the search results now appear instantaneously. This makes it easier for you to get back to your notes. More features that were added to the OneNote include the following: support for tilting the new Surface Pen to write/draw ideas, bug fixes, and more performance improvements.

This update was only available for the Fast Ring insiders, and it pushed the app to the new version 17.8730.2008.

More November updates for other Office apps

Take a look at what’s new in Version 2.7 (171903001), a preview of the November 2017 feature update for Word, PowerPoint, and Excel for iPhone and iPad.

  • Digital ink: with the addition of a digital pencil to pens and effects that were already available, you will be able to sketch out your ideas to make them come to life. You will also be able to rediscover the pure delight of creating content with a pen. This feature will be available in Word, Excel, and PowerPoint.
  • Faster scrolling: you will be able to move really quickly through more extended spreadsheets on your touch device by using the new scroll handles. This will be obviously available only in Excel.

These updates are just a preview, so Microsoft will probably squash a few bugs and sculpt a bit more these features before rolling them out to the general public just to make sure that everything will work just fine.

These features will be released to general users later this month.
