    Only the desktop version of Onenote seems to allow you to draw with your fingers. I can't find a way to draw in OneNote MX using my fingers.

    yea, that's only in the desktop version of Onenote. I'm talking about the Onenote MX metro app. There's no drawing option that I can find.

    You can't, you need an active digitizer pen, which will be detected automatically as pen input and let you write.

    Touch and capacitive styluses are seen as the same type of input, so that function isn't available.

    The first answer was correct, click on draw, choose the colour and pen thickness and away you go. You can buy a capacitive stylus rather than using your finger but you don't have the pressure options that come with the Intel version of the Surface.

    And again, that only works on OneNote 2013, which is the desktop variant. It does not work on the Metro version of OneNote that the OP is asking about.

    I find using a stylus for ink on Surface RT unacceptable due to the lack of a digitizer anti-aliasing and smoothing the writing. Those of us that have used traditional Windows tablet PCs will understand. I hope the Pro will address that.

    I actually need to draw graphs for my economic class. Lots of supply and demand graphs. Obviously I'm not going to write with my finger when I can just type.

    Please note the /sarcasm tag. Drawing writing with fingers should obviously be a feature, pressure sensitive or not.

    Would anyone mind posting a screen shot of their one note notebook? I am no longer a student but I imagine some people would find one note extremely helpful and I just wanted to see some examples.
