onenote: Microsoft OneNote gets resignation refresh, brings new interface, features and more

After updating many of its apps and software, Microsoft has now started testing a new design update for its note-taking app — a note. The company first teased the app’s updated design last year and eventually began rolling out the update for beta testers.
The new OneNote design update brings the app in line with Windows 11 aesthetics. Additionally, the design refresh merges OneNote and OneNote for Windows 10 apps into a single OneNote app.
As for the design changes, the update adds new navigation panes and full screen mode. Apart from this, the page list, notebook dropdown option and section tabs have been updated with a new look.
The test version of the OneNote app also brings the Mica effect of the Windows 11 theme and wallpapers. The usual Windows 11 changes are also present, including rounded corners, new animations, and more.
OneNote’s test version also got a new unread indicator similar to what we’ve seen with other Office some products. The new indicator allows users to quickly find unread changes.
That’s not it, OneNote also got an updated Drawing tab with tools borrowed from Word, Excel and power point. The list of new tools includes a ruler, shape, and ink for text. The app has also received support for Surface Slim Pen 2.
Other new features include page sorting, new sharing options, insert image functionality directly from the camera app, and more.
