  1. OneNote API ...?filter=parentNotebook/name eq 'Christopher's Notebook'' fails

    OneNote API ...?filter=parentNotebook/name eq 'Christopher's Notebook' fails with bad request
    Section and notebook names allow single quote in name but impossible to set filter specifying such name...

  2. Control better text boxes in iOS app

    We can't enlarge and mive text boxes around on a page in the iOS app. We need to go in the browser app to modify and come back to the app. It's very irritating. Same problem for images copied from internet.

  5. Select multiple slides

    When my professor posts a PDF powerpoint I import it as a PDF printout, when there is an unimportant slide I delete it, it would be nice to have an easy way to move all the slides up automatically instead of having a gap, or needing to move 100 individual slides up one at a time

  6. More options for linking handwritten text or creating of a bullet or button that links to paragraphs/pages.

    I use a Wacom tablet to write my notes. I don't want to convert my handwriting to text so to create links to different pages and paragraphs I just type in a * next to my writing. But then it creates a text box approximately 50x bigger than the actual asterisk and it tries to line it up with the words which usually makes it on the last word or a little too far away instead of being right at the end of my handwriting.

    I think it would be nice to have a symbol such as a bullet point…

  8. API to retrieve links to other OneNote pages in page content

    In OneNote, pages can contain links to other pages (as well as to websites, other OneNote sections/notebooks, network shares ...).I needed a way programmatically to GET the content of such pages and had to code my own link retrieval routine. It'd be good if the API could do this for me ;)
    See my exchange with Jorge Aguirre about this request:
    http://stackoverflow.com/questions/36207073/any-way-in-onenote-api-to-extract-link-to-another-onenote-page

  9. Upgrade sample code so it works with Windows 10 UWP not Windows 8.1

    Windows 10 has been out for about a year now, so why are the samples requiring that I load about 10 gigs of stuff I don't need on my machine for Visual Studio to support your samples.

    Is this just a case of no budget or laziness? Just curious.

  10. Ability to upload and download notebooks via rest API

    Given the 5000 SharePoint/Office365 item limit, it would be extremely useful to be able to move notebooks in and out of sharepoint without resorting to convoluted onedrive/curl hacks.

  11. API to retrieve an HTML preview of a page

    Simple - GET pages/id/preview, which returns pretty HTML with a preview of the page to use in my picker scenario.

  12. PUT Pages {id} to overwrite page contents

    Even though it is possible to modify Page contents with the API, it's unnecessarily cumbersome to overwrite the whole thing.

    PUT Pages {id} would simplify the process immensely, enriching overall API.

  13. Fix Android Bug with copyToSection

    I'm sorry for posting here but not sure where this truly fits.
    On all platforms I have tried, OneNote for mac/pc/online a page with a pdf image created by copying an already stored page via page:copyToSection works fine except on android. On android an exclamation mark occurs.
    Create page successfully produces the correct page on android (and oher devices) but at a greater time cost.

  17. Assign Talks to Otter People in the organization Ort SharePoint - like confluence @tasks

    Make @tasks available in onenote versions tied into Exchange/SharePoint/activeSirectory.
    The Funktionalität should be just like the @tasks in Confluence, and should be searchable.

    Link: https://confluence.atlassian.com/conf52/managing-tasks-in-confluence-401441781.html

  18. Allow "Text Mode" to be used directly on top of PDF documents or photos

    I'd like to be able to annotate my PDF lecture notes in class without a stylus sometimes. So, I'd like to be able to tap the area on the PDF that I want to add a note (iPad Pro), and then just type the note. I don't want to use my finger, as that is not accurate.
