Improved pen and gesture support
With improved support for the use of pens and gestures, users can select the “Draw” tab to customize the way they write or edit their notes using a touchscreen device. There is also the option of gestures to facilitate actions while using the pen.

Just like Word and Outlook, OneNote is also getting faster text writing predictions. This means you can make quick edits while taking notes, completing the sentence with words you were already thinking about writing. These writing predictions appear as a “shadow” and are entered by pressing the “Tab” key or the “right arrow” key.
New layout option with vertical tabs
It’s been a while since the vertical tabs option arrived in OneNote for some users, but now it’s being made available to everyone.
