Drawing Versus Writing

You can use the pen for both writing and drawing. Most of the time you don't even need to distinguish between the two, OneNote will distinguish for you. If you draw a cube on the screen and then try to choose Convert Handwriting to Text from the Tools menu, you'll find that it's unavailable. However, what if you're drawing something more ambiguous? By default, OneNote allows you to use the pen to create both handwriting and drawings. If you attempt to draw something that looks like a letter (for instance drawing a corner that looks like the letter L), OneNote might not treat it as you would expect. OneNote could treat it as a letter even though you intended it as a drawing.

In addition to the default behavior (allowing both handwriting and drawings) you can configure OneNote to accept only handwriting or only drawings.
