Microsoft updates Sticky Notes for Insiders on the Fast ring - here's what's new

In a post in the Feedback Hub, Microsoft announced an update to Sticky Notes today, which is currently available for Windows Insiders in the Fast ring. If you're not familiar with the app, it's pretty much like virtual Post-its, but ever since the Anniversary Update, there's a new UWP version of the app.

And that new app has a number of new features. If you write in a date, it will turn into a hyperlink that, when clicked, will open Cortana to set a reminder. You can find it in the Ink Workspace.

Today's update adds the ability to strike text. Here's the official changelog:

  • When you've completed something in your notes, you can now strike it out by highlighting the text and hitting Ctrl+T. Done!

Microsoft also listed a number of fixes that are included in the update:

  • Prefer to keep your notes compact and small in size? You can now change their color without having to make them larger.
  • Fun fact: It's estimated that over 40% of the world is bilingual. If that includes you, we fixed a bug that would show you the incorrect smart insights when switching your keyboard language.

  • Your Sticky Notes app was getting a little confused if you were using alt to create special letters or characters that you needed. That bug is now officially squashed!

  • We heard that some of you were seeing the app crash when highlighting text and then typing. Sorry, it's all fixed now.

Some of these fixes are very significant. Many bilingual users are dissatisfied with how their device handles multiple languages, so any improvements will surely be welcome.

To update or install Sticky Notes, head over to the Windows Store right here.
