Fill Shapes or Selections with Colours still Not here 2017
Here we are in 2017 and this feature still not implemented in OneNote but Word Excel & PP have it. But OneNote is tagged as a great drawing app!!!
We are not talking of a NASA think tank just get it sorted Microsoft.

Hahaha its actually comical how in 2020 you still cant fill a shape in Onenote. microsoft must not read/care about user needs
i eagerly tested out my new surface pen in OneNote. It tool me 3 minutes of use before I started looking for how to fill shapes. WHATTTT? it can't be done. You have to be kidding?

how is this still note in there
Should be a must and not a should ;).
Basically, my workaround is not the best, but I use paint to have a color and then I copy a section and then resize it within the OneNote.

please add this it would help a lot. Filling in a shape with highlighter is very tedious
come on guys!!!
Please add fill shapes - ahhhhrrrr
I love the way this comment is worded but I still don't see "Fill Color" in the new OneNote :-(
PLEASE this! I use Onenote in my classroom as a teaching/notetaking tool. How can all the other office application shave this but not Onenote??

I have been transferring notes from Excel sheets into OneNote and noticed many things (i consider basic) missing or much more difficult to use. However, I was stunned to find you are missing this type of basic functionality available in other productivity applications. The only option you provide is to draw some squiggly type line manually - not even reasonable.
Still not here 2019! I was hoping this could be a great way to make flash cards, by putting an opaque shape over the top.
Come on, MS. I'm trying to standardize on OneNote, but you've got to meet me halfway. So odd that you'd leave off such a basic drawing feature.
Yep, do this MS. I need it for my AWS (constantly evolving - sick-implied-burn) Notes.
Strongly agree - this is one of a few very simple things that OneNote could do MUCH better. It's a very useful app - why not develop it instead of taking backward steps to the 'new' versions.?
Unfortunate. I am sad, but hopeful. Let's go OneNote Team!

2018 and still no fill... Betting the 2019 will be just as buggy and won't have fill either. Awesome job Microsoft.
Please resolve this issue.
