In the examples above I have used Microsoft Word application, but the same procedure stands for Microsoft Excel and Microsoft PowerPoint. If we want to add a new Pen or Highlighter as a favorite one, all we need to do is to select the command Add Pen at the right of the Pens area as shown below. The drop-down menu will appear where we can add a Pen or a Highlighter as shown.

If we add a new Pen for the first time, a Screen Tip dialog box will appear mentioning the following:

  • We’ll Remember This Set Of Pens Across Your Apps And Devices. Drag And Drop To Change The Order

That is it. We can draw freehand to make annotations, highlight text or even quickly draw shapes, just by selecting the Pen or Highlighter that we want.
