Microsoft has announced a veritable bonanza of new features for its OneNote note-taking software across multiple platforms, providing added functionality for people who rely on it to organize their thoughts.
First and foremost, Microsoft made it easier to save online videos for later use inside OneNote. Users can now add a link to one of a handful of popular video services inside OneNote for Windows 10, Mac and iOS, and Microsoft’s software will automatically embed the linked video into the notebook for easy playback later.
Users of Microsoft’s note-taking software on the iPad can now rearrange audio recordings, images, text, shapes and any other item on a page by touching and dragging them. To help with that, Microsoft added a lasso tool so that users can select groups of objects and move them around as one unit.
