Win­dows Ink and Maps

APC Australia - - Technotes -

1 GET DI­REC­TIONS

Win­dows Ink is also get­ting an up­date. Us­ing a sty­lus, you’ll be able to draw a line be­tween two points in Maps (prob­a­bly your start and end points!) and then get in­stant di­rec­tions be­tween those two lo­ca­tions. You will also be able to use Win­dows Ink’s ruler tool to draw straight lines across your map.

2 GET GO­ING

Here are the di­rec­tions for our cho­sen route, which we can ad­just if we wish. In the new up­date, Clipboard will en­able you to copy and paste loads of stuff be­tween con­nected de­vices across An­droid, iOS, and Win­dows; it could be a photo, map link or text. You can then paste wher­ever you want.

3 SHARE IT

You can also an­no­tate the map how­ever you like and share it with oth­ers at will. Here we’ve drawn a map of a pa­rade route — al­though it could be ab­so­lutely any­thing — which we can then share it with our bud­dies. You can use Win­dows Ink to add de­tails in dif­fer­ent colours, too, of course.
