Creating shapes on notes in OneNote

With OneNote, you can insert shapes, like a circle, triangle, or rectangle, or even draw shapes with your finger, pen, or mouse, and OneNote will automatically clean them up for you.

Insert a shape

  1. Select Draw > Shapes.

  2. Choose a basic shape, like an Oval, click anywhere in your notebook, and then drag to create the shape.

Draw a shape on a touch screen

  1. Tap Draw with Mouse or Touch.

  2. Tap Ink to Shape

  3. Draw a shape. Your hand-drawn shapes automatically turn into shapes with straight lines and clean corners.

  4. When you're done drawing, tap Select Objects or Type Text.
