How does this work?

MS seem to have modernised the UI for ON compared to most screenshots I can find and the 'ink to text' button seems to have vanished.

I'm sure it's bound to be really simple, but I can't work out how you turn writing into text in notes at all. Anyone know?

Only in the desktop version, under Draw on the far right there is Ink to Text.

Alternatively bring up the on screen keyboard and change that to handwriting recognition and write in the entry box there in the modern app.

Yes I have the desktop version (I assume) and there is no Ink to Text button. The other solution works for the title of a page but stops working for any body text in a note.

if you're using ON that came on the device, that's the Modern version not the Desktop one

OK. Is the Modern version the current version? 

If I write in the entry box it will convert text for the first part that goes on the dotted line. After that in the actual body text it will not.

For some strange reason there is two versions, a stripped down ON app and a full version ON 2013/2016 program.

The ON app is quite limited in functionality and that is the one that opens when you press the button on the pen (on my pro 3 at least).

Yes mine looks like the first one.

Can you still get the second one?

Do you have a 365 subscription? or 2013/2016 licence?

I think you can download from here https://www.onenote.com/download  download the desktop version.

I haven't been able to get it to work with the pen clicker, but I haven't tried too hard.

I have only the software that came on the Surface Pro 4. I do not really use Office so can't see much point in subscribing.

You just get a page that says "Önenote is already installed with Windows 10""and it opens the version described above.

It's as if the old version has been replaced but handwriting recognition on a tablet with a pen no longer works!! frown

Brilliant Nathan - thanks! That works a treat.

I see that you cannot ask the system to use the desktop version when you click the pen top. It would be good if at some point you could choose which version opens when you click.

I completely agree, why would you want to use the app version on anything else but a phone?  

It would be great to be able to customise the pen clicks.

Given that Surface is a fully functioning laptop not an iPad type of device, it seems doubly odd.
