Learn about a new tool in Maps for drawing directly on a map. In addition to making handwritten notes on a map, this tool can also be used for measuring distances and getting directions.
- [Narrator] In this movie we'll see…some new features in the Maps application.…So I'll go into the start menu,…I'll find Maps, and click on it there to launch it.…Now strictly speaking, the features…that we're talking about are not part…of the Creators Update, but these features…came out through a software update…so recently that lots of people talk about them…in the context of the Creators Update…so it really makes sense to include these features here.…What we're talking about are inking tools…in the maps that will let you draw directly on a map.…So if I go to this tool bar near the top right…and click on this button for inking,…it will open up the inking tool bar,…and we have a bunch of options here.…
