Experimental features goes mainstream !

The new UI which was introduced a few month ago – as an « experimental feature » – becomes the standard UI (from version 17.8269) :


It is amazing how the User Interface has been honed further, with :

  • Notebook icons : now differentiating current notebook (opened) and other notebooks
  • Section tabs :
    • Now differentiating simple sections, and section group,
    • The symbol to expand the section group is now identical to the one used to expand sub-pages,
    • The section tabs now overlap with the dividing line between the notebook pane and the section pane.

    Some tiny details.

The gear wheel has vanished : The Settings are now reached through a command on the upper right corner :


The Print icon, which was previously located on the « View » tab, has moved to the top banner : it’s much easier to find !

Version 17.8241 : « print » icon in the “ViewMenu
Version 17.8269 : a new command on the upper right corner, where the “Print” command is now located, alongside with Settings.


By the way, what a long journey for this Print Command :

Interestingly, the « Experimental features »’ option remains in the Settings/Options, meaning that the OneNote Dev. team may still push and assess new features this way :
The first one is the « Researcher feature », which I’ll cover in a separate post later.


Updated 18/06 : The « Multiple Windows » feature went back ! (and shows in the View tab, in lieu of the « Deleted notes »)

Updated June 2017 : Added the tiny details, showing the great care to details.

Updated 30/08 : The “Deleted notes” comes back, with new options (immersive readers…).

The View menu, as of August’ 30th
