The pattern complement is Microsoft’s bid to overpass 2D and 3D graphics, and move cohesive pattern to desktops, tablets, and a HoloLens and VR headsets.
First up, a association is introducing a new ‘command-bar flyout’ underline that will be integrated with content boxes and note-taking apps. The underline takes a lead from Microsoft Word’s badge and authority bar and is entrance to OneNote first.
