Enable Drawing and Handwriting Emails in Mail

For touch-enabled devices such as the Microsoft Surface Pro, the Drawing features in Mail is automatically enabled as a default. If you are using Mail on any other device such as a laptop or desktop, you may enable it by customizing the Ribbon and selecting the Draw tab. Now, to add a drawing to your message or add a handwritten note, you first have to create a message or reply to an existing one you have received. Then, at the top of the window, select the Draw tab.

Pen Tool

Then, select anywhere in the message body where you want to put your cursors. Select Drawing Canvas. You may not start writing or sketching inside the drawing canvas. This section of the canvas has different drawing options and line thickness as well as colors, so it’s like you are drawing with coloring or drawing materials such as pen or highlighter.

Drawing Canvas

For drawing on pictures, you may select the Insert tab to insert a picture into your message. Then, you may overlay your handwriting, drawing, or sketches into the picture. If you don’t have an ink-enabled pen, you may use your finger or another stylus; then select the draw icon with a finger in the Ribbon.
