Don't assume I want to ink when I'm using a pen.

I like OneNote, and use it daily, but using a Surface Pro 4, I find myself preferring the Online version, as I'm really annoyed by the automatic inking in the OneNote UWP app.

In every other text editor and online I use pen for editing, text selection, copy, paste etc. Why doesn't the UWP app have a setting to turn off automatic inking?

If I wanted to draw or scribble i would choose that tab or setting my self. Will there be any option for OneNote NOT to ink while using a pen?
