Will it ever be possible to fill a shape with color on OneNote
Will it ever be possible to fill a shape with color on OneNote, similar to Microsoft Word and PowerPoint? Does anyone with any power in Microsoft read these questions?
I feel like a clown going back and forth copying colored rectangles from Word to OneNote, just so I can make an effective diagram. Perhaps OneNote developers would like me to print out a red filled circle from Word and tape it to my nose while I try to fill a shape in OneNote?
Thanks for nothing.

The shape tool in OneNote is useless for me because I cannot fill them. We have been waiting for at least ten years for this feature. Can we at least have an explanation for why this hasn't been implemented?
Request noted by MS in 2011. https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/forum/all/onenote-2010-fill-a-standard-shape-with-a-color/ad36cd9e-485d-e011-8dfc-68b599b31bf5
Angel: because word was designed for advanced formatting, onenote wasn't? Because word has a drawing engine, onenote has an inking engine? it seems logical that a word processor would have more formatting options (including more shapes and line options) than a note-taking app, where formatting doesn't matter by definition.
Although tbh I want it in onenote too.
How is it that Word has more clip art, SHAPES and line options, etc than a Note taking app? Can be very frustrating and disappointing- why make it harder for students when its already challenging enough!

It is a lame that function is not available, to be honest

I was just looking for this option also. It would be extremely helpful to have a shaded in shape.

I agree and vote, and also It won't be too much to add a possibility to connect shaps with each othe by line-connector like in Visio.

Yes, this would be so helpful.
And to be able to choose hex code for the colors I am filling a form with.
