  2. Local OneNote Files

    For security/privacy reasons, an option to save OneNote files ONLY locally to a device (particularly an iPad) and not to OneDrive is greatly needed. This significantly reduces the utility of OneNote in the occupational context.

  3. Add an option to add a "Copy" button next to text

    Add an option to add a "Copy" button next to some text, to easily copy the highlighted text with one button click.

    This is useful especially for posting snippets of code/configuration that:

    1. Can be easily changed when copying/typing elsewhere

    2. Is sometimes surrounded by quotes or other punctuation and selecting it can be annoying

  5. Page template options and a pencil

    I love onenote and use it daily over a range of devices. However, some things that it lacks is.
    1. paper template options — I really wish that I could create my own paper template, e.g. wider margin for question writing.
    2. A pencil option for shading? I do a lot of anatomy drawings and would love if onenote took it that extra step for artistic purpose.
    3. I’d find it beyond handy if onenote introduced another ‘storage’ heading, I feel as though my books get extremely messy by the end of my semester. I would find it extremely useful…

  6. Bulk transfer of emails from outlook to onenote

    Why can't we have the bulk transfer of emails direct from outlook to onenote like 2016 version.

    I subscribe to specific sites for updates which I export to onenote 2i016. I have a large very useful library now, but onenote does not allow this.

    This is an invaluable tool for me and I don't see why it was dropped.

  8. How to Troubleshoot HP ePrint Not Working Issue - HP ePrint Support

    Having trouble with your HP ePrint app? Just check out the following simple tips to resolve it!

    First, confirm is web services are enabled on your printer by going to the network or wireless settings. Then check if you have drafted the email correctly. Always ensure to put the HP Printer’s email address alone in the TO field and have a text written in the ‘Subject’ column. Only these types of formats are acceptable for ePrint: GIF, JPG, PNG, BMP, or TIFF, PDF, HTML, TXT, Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, or Excel. Other formats might cancel the ePrint job.

  9. Drag and drop PDFs, audio files to One Note on iPad

    Hi,
    right now, it's not possible to drag PDFs and audio files from other apps to One Note on iPad - is that correct?
    I'm the developer of Yoink, a "shelf" app that temporarily stores content for later use, and I have a customer who uses One Note.
    They can drag images and texts from Yoink to One Note, but PDFs or audio files are rejected by One Note (although it works by selecting "Attach file").
    It would be great if drag and dropping PDFs and audio files would be supported by One Note.

    Thank you,
    - Matt

  14. Export sections to hard drive

    One note 2016 allowed the sections to rest in folders on a hard drive or in our case our NAS. The new onenote only lives in the cloud, So instead of having a onenote for a project, that rests with all the other files for that project in it folder on a harddrive, now all sections must live in the cloud? In two years and 200 plus projects, how would you even archive old projects if they can not be exported to a hard disk? Bring back the abilty to open and close individual onenote files from a hard disk.

  15. symbols / special characters

    Can you please add special characters/symbols like there is on Word ?
    Greek letters / mathmatical characters etc. are not accesible.
    Everytime I need to use it, I have to copy from somewhere else and paste on OneNote...

    Thanks ahead!

  16. Why Onenote Online's hyperlink has 'http://' at the beginning

    I want to use hyperlink to open a protocol app, but the online's link will add a 'http://'; at the beginning. I think it is not necessary. And it is different from UWP OneNote.
    Now how can i open my protocol UWP APP?

  18. Expose the complete Object Model of Onenote

    The OneNote API should be the API that the Microsoft team that develop OneNote themselves uses.
    There should not be anything that Microsoft can do that a 3:ed party could not do as well.

    There should be a set of basic classes/objects that remain fairly stable over time and then just about everything else should be addons.
    Check out how Visual Studio is done, and then do something similar with OneNote.

    At the very foundation OneNote is nothing but a distributed and replicated Database, so creating new data models/structures should be a trivial thing.
    There could be requirements that there…

  19. Mind Maps. , would be great to be able to create mind maps in One Note

    It would be helpful to create basic mind maps in one note. I appreciate I could draw one, but not very professional to export or share.

  20. OneNote CLI

    I work heavily on Linux systems, we use OneNote for our documentation. I would like to see a OneNote CLI that would give us access to our OneNote account via the command line. I'd like to access our notebooks, folders, and pages and be able to view/create/edit when working on a terminal. This would give us customers the power of OneNote via a single interface or application instead of going back and forth, which would make for convenient and efficient usage.
