Besides the ability to write plain text and manuscript text anywhere on the canvas, you can add a sticky note to the group text. When you move a reminder, the text (inked or textual) is moved.

18. Move and hide the rule

Instead of providing straight lines, Microsoft Whiteboard offers a rule for drawing lines and aligning objects. You must draw a line along the edge of the ruler. Here are various tips for using it as a pro.

Once the rule is added by clicking or tapping on its icon in the bottom bar, use a finger to move it (touch devices) or click and drag it with the mouse. To hide the rule, click or tap the same rule icon again in the bottom bar.

To rotate the ruler, use two fingers to change direction. You can also place the mouse pointer over the ruler, and then scroll the mouse wheel button to change the angle.

To do this, open the Image toolbar by right-clicking it and then pressing the three-dot icon. Click or tap the Lock in Background option.

Apart from saving whiteboards to your Microsoft accounts (happens automatically), you can even save it as a PNG or SVG file. However, it’s a manual process, and you need to use the Export option.
