    {UPDATE: InkToolbar is available from SDK 14332]

    I am dying to use these goodies, but I can't seem to do it: InkToolbar is not a known control. I assumed it was because the SDK (10586) simply wasn't up-to-date. Today SDK 14295 came out and I still have NO InkToolbar. What am I missing here? Thanks, already

    Can you please share the code sample for win32 apps.

    @jsrivast: Hi, I can't actually give that code sample, but maybe this will help: You will need to find a way to host the UWP inking controls in a Desktop app. Never done that and am not entirely sure if and how well it might work. What framework? WPF or WinForms. Should be possible in both, I think

    Hi Stephen, unfortunately SDK 14295 does not include the XAML InkToolbar control, it will come with the next SDK update.

    Hi Jsrivast,

    We are working on a public sample of Win32 InkPresenter API, it should be available in a couple of months through GitHub. Meanwhile, please refer to MSDN documentation here: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/mt622165(v=vs.85).aspx

    @Francis Zhou: Hi Francis, I have since my post installed SDK 14332 which indeed includes the InkToolbar. But I thank you for the information.

    can you position the ruler at a specific coordinate position in the InkCanvas?
