    Is it possible to change the ink color of ink that is already written? I cant figure cut if you can.

    The answer is no Fido.
    Once you apply the ink you are stamping down a graphic.
    As you obviously know, a graphic works totally differently to controlled text where it can be altered, be it color (colour UK), size, font etc.

    actually that was what I was wondering as well. OneNote Saves the int as Vector, or? If So, why can't one change it's color ?

    Same principle Grinner.
    Don't assume OneNote to have the controls that a dedicated vector graphics program contains.
    It's a great program but still very basic when it comes to graphics control.

    Aww. I assumed that since each stroke was selectable that it was some kind of vector data. I'm sure they could add this feature if they wanted to.

    One would hope so. But MS isn't that great when it comes to consistency and intuitive design. For example I can't tag something that is multiple lines large without OneNote giving the selected text one tag per line.

    Although I have never tried to do this until now, this really is a stunning omission. This is a feature you can do in paint, but not in ON. Also in the stunning omissions category is the realization that even in Office 2007 ink is not searchable. ON2007 does. Journal does. Excel, Word, PowerPoint, no way.

    Oh well it was pretty obvious. I forgot about the color dial next to the pen icon.
