Diagrams

Available in OneNote for W10

 

OneNote for W10 has an Ink Shape recognition feature since a while now. But I just happen to discover that – despite the lack of a “Group objects” command – it is nevertheless possible to move an entire diagram easily with a simple touch gesture (no need to use the lasso or mouse).

 

Moving an entire diagram :

Simply press twice quickly with your finger on any shape (on one of its border), and the entire diagram will be selected, ready to be moved around.

Pressing twice quickly will show a border, and the icon which allows to move the entire selection

All it takes is a simple touch gesture : magical !

Moving individual objects :

With a mouse, if you click once, you can select an individual shape, and move it alone (without the “enclosed” text unfortunately). And if you select the shape with the lasso, you may of course move around the shape with the enclosed text.

→ In both case, the connectors linking to the next shape will not remain anchored to the shape.

 

Thus, it’s not as powerful as Nebo for that purpose (see my other blog post), but a welcome feature anyway !
