    In the July update, Onenote enabled users to have multiple pens and highlighters in the draw section. After the recent August update, I don't have them anymore. I tried reloading Onenote, but nothing changed. Can someone tell me why this has happened and help me get the pens back?
    I'm using PC Windows 10 Pro 64-bit and my Onenote version is 17.8471.57721.0.

    Had a look at this with varying results. On my desktop PC with Version 17.8471.57721.0 if I click on the Draw and then click on a pen and then click again I get a little drop down icon and I can change the pens both in size shape and colour.

    But on my SP4 on the same version I don't see anything like the same pen options, I can achieve the same results using the independent tool bar options like size and shape. Doesn't matter if I am in desktop or tablet mode.

    The only difference is the desktop PC is on the release preview of Insiders whereas the SP4 isn't in the Insiders builds at all.

    And as if by a miracle I just took my sp4 over to the settee and opened OneNote and I now have the same pen options as my desktop.......

    I am having the same issue. This is almost unusable now. The highlighter in the draw section is opaque! I really miss my favorite pen colors too.
