    Hi,

    Been using my Pro now for a while but can´t get rid of that feeling that something´s missing...

    On my Samsung Note, when I draw a circle or square or triangle it fixes the shape by auto/default, is there a similar function in Pro 3...? Would be really happy if it worked in Onenote (I know there is the option by clicking in desktop BUT I wan´t it to correct by automode...)

    If not in Onenote, is there any app that solves it?

    Thanks!

    //David, Sweden

    Hi, David,

    Try Paint. That old program has been updated nicely. You will see markup icons at the top for shapes.

    Thanks Sharpcolorado,

    however, I´m not looking for option to tap and then draw or am I missing something? I want to draw and by automatic it straightens the line/box/triangle and so on...

    Like this (exactly how I work with it on my Samsung Note phone with S-pen :) ):

    Very different applications as far as workflow. OneNote is a free canvass you can insert shapes or free hand them . For Math input see below:

    Ok jnjroach, but is there any application that solves this? If I would to leave the idea of Onenote...

    If not, I really can´t understand MS not having this feature. I can´t be the one and only using it on my Note phone and on the Smart Board every other day...

    PowerPoint may do that.

    When I draw a shape, such as a triangle, circle, oval, star, line, etc., it is 'straightened', or rectified for me.

    Click shape, then click/click+drag placement. Hold down SHIFT to recrify.
