Microsoft draw application update, further upgrade Win11 style WinUI elements
In December, Microsoft tested the new drawing application. The new app gets a Windows 11-style design theme in “Edit colors” and “Resize and Tilt” dialog boxes.
Now, in the latest preview Windows 11, Microsoft has further refined the overall interface for drawing, upgrading more of the interface and design to the WinUI style, especially with rounded corners and Mica designs.
The latest version of drawing is mostly a visual update to the UI, but some of it still relies on Windows 8-era code. Microsoft confirmed that not every dialog box has been updated, and only important dialogs such as the “color picker” or “Resize” tools still use the old design, without upgrading Fluent and WinUI 3.0.
However, the latest drawing further enables the WinUI element in the test channel. In addition to the “Edit color” and “Resize and Tilt” dialogs, WinUI has been updated to match the Windows 11 design style.
In addition, you can select a color as your second choice by holding down the Shift key on the palette.
The new version also fixes several bugs. For example, fixed an issue with text boxes moving unexpectedly when using IME, and a problem with dialog boxes not displaying localized languages in some regional languages.
Finally, there is a new support for screen readers.
