Use the keyboard to navigate and select ink strokes in OneNote for Windows 10

In OneNote for Windows 10, you can use the arrow keys on an attached keyboard to navigate and select ink strokes more easily.


Do the following:

  1. Open the page that contains a drawing whose ink strokes you want to select.

    Tip: To create a new drawing, see Write notes and draw in OneNote.

  2. Select any existing ink stroke on the page, and then do any of the following:

    • Press the Right Arrow key on your keyboard to move the selection to the adjacent ink stroke near the right of your current selection.

    • Press the Left Arrow key on your keyboard to move the selection to the adjacent ink stroke near the left of your current selection.

    Tip: To add adjacent ink strokes to your current selection instead of switching to them, hold the Shift key while pressing either the Right Arrow or the Left Arrow key on your keyboard and OneNote will combine the ink strokes you navigate to into a single selection.
