The ability to replay ink strokes like they were drawn lets us design things step by step or even to show a process of thoughts. This is where the Ink Replay command appears.

Ink Replay In Office 365

In a previous post of mine named Start Inking in PowerPoint, I described the feature of Drawing-Using Ink in a Presentation. We can find the Inking Tools by activating the Draw tab of the Ribbon. Inking Tools are available in Microsoft Word 365 and Microsoft Excel 365, and Microsoft PowerPoint 365. Why Inking though?

We use this procedure to comment, mark up and annotate content with the use of a pen, a highlighter or felt tip pen. We can also erase any changes that we make and change the color and weight of a line or text that we have added while marking up the content.

An extra command now that has been added on the Draw tab is the Ink Replay command. What is the use of the Ink Replay command?

By activating it we can rewind and replay our Ink Strokes as they occurred in the actual Document, Spreadsheet or Slide. In order to see the Ink Replay command in action just continue reading.

In the image below, I have opened the Microsoft Office PowerPoint 365 application, I have activated the Draw tab as shown, and at the end right of the area of the ribbon I have selected the command Ink Replay from the Reply area.
