Whiteboard for Windows 10

  1. add keyboard shortcut to every tools

    Adding shortcut for every tool would be great for faster tool selection without having to use the mouse to select and move the cursor back to the position for editing.

    Make use of keyboard. Example for this would be awwapp.com, which have shortcut for most of the tools.

  3. Allow Ctrl+Click to select multiple items

    Selecting and moving multiple items is a useful feature when organizing notes.

    Ctrl+Click is the standard way other application implement multi-selecting.

  4. Introduce layers to quickly lock/show/hide parts of your drawing

    It would be useful to have a feature that allows a user to add multiple layers in their drawing. You could start drawing something in one color, add a layer and draw something in another color.

    Afterwards, when you're showing or erasing something, you can lock or hide a layer. Just like any modern image editing tool.

  5. Add music staves as background

    Music teachers that use Microsoft Whiteboard in class need music staves as background :-)

    It would be awesome if that background was added to Whiteboard.

  6. saving whiteboards

    It would be good to be able to save whiteboards as whiteboards. i.e. save it and then open a saved whiteboard when you need it. I'd like to be able to save a bunch of whiteboards in different folders and then re-use them when called for with my classes

  7. dynamic font size adjustment

    As you add text to post-its or adjust its size, dynamically adjust font size to fit, instead of having to scroll.

  10. Integrate Whiteboard postIt -notes with Microsoft To-Do

    Since the introduction of Kanban board templates is now in preview, it needs to be evolved with integration to To-Do. Ability to mark the post it note as a task to a person should also
    - add that person to a team
    - modify postIt to be a task note visible (indicator: not done / ready)
    - add that task to person's To-Do
    - mark the postIt done when person marks it done
    Alternatively: ability to integrate with Planner and changes in there would reflect in the post-It.

    It would create a way to visualize team tasks (planner, to-do) and…

  11. Allow to edit font style (family, size, weight, ...)

    It should be nice if it would be possible to freely edit the font style (font-family, size, weight, italic, underline, ...)

  12. Normal straight line tool

    Include a normal straight line tool (with controllable thickness and colour). The ruler thing is impractical for regular use.

  13. Ink to Shape for Diagrams & Advanced Visualizations

    The current Ink to Shape feature automatically transforms drawings on the whiteboard into the exact shape if they are squares, rectangles, triangles, circles, hexagons, pentagons, and parallelograms.

    Physical and visual whiteboards are most often used in situations where some complicated knowledge needs to be understood, discussed and connected.

    In addition to the already supported shapes, there are the most important shapes currently missing:
    - arrows, with one and both directions
    - lines, without any arrows
    - and both in a connected way to other shapes or non-connected to any shapes

  14. Add arrow as a default drawing options

    When you want to design an architecture diagram or just relation ship, it would be really helpful to have an option to automatically draw those relation ship between forms, boxes...

  15. Template editor with drag and drop function

    Using the Microsoft predefined templates like Kanban, SWOT or KWL feels great but unfortunately very restricted too. Please add some sort of a template editor where I can add elements I'd like to use and save it for future whiteboards.

  18. Grouping/categorizing/tagging of Whiteboards

    Once you have many whiteboards you are going to need a way of organizing them. A simple grouping/categorizing or tagging of whiteboards would help. The modern way would probably be tagging the whiteboard and then filtering them based on a tag that you enter.

  19. Read Only Sharing Link

    Sharing link for a Whiteboard - could you add a sharing link that gives the recipients 'read only' as currently you can only send a link that gives access to edit the whiteboard. As a teacher, I don't really want the students messing with the shared whiteboard.

  20. Can you offer new fonts instead of a handwriting font?

    The current default font is a handwriting font and sometimes hard to read. If you could add new fonts that were neater like Calibri or Arial or other Word fonts, that would be great. Now I just write on sticky notes instead because it has better fonts.
