  2. Embedded codeboxes

    Provide support to copy/paste in code snippets into oneNote pages. Maybe even preserve syntax highlighting (atleast from Visual Studios).

  3. [Possibilities / capabilities of the programmer] Möglichkeiten/Fähigkeiten der Programmierer

    Fragt Euch doch mal warum ein einzelner Programmierer mit Gem für OneNote so viele Funktionen einbauen kann die das ganze Team nicht hinbekommt?

    Wo habert es?
    Das es keinen Bedarf an den Funktionen gibt kann eher nicht sein, sonst würde Gem sich nicht verkaufen!

  4. Create a OneNote "Digest" option in IFTTT

    In IFTTT, there are email digest options that allow a day's or week's worth of content to be dumped at a specific time to an email. Allow the same feature in OneNote so that each trigger doesn't create a separate page, but aggregates a day's worth (or a set number) of content on one page.

  5. Code samples for web-app js authentication

    Google wraps up their auth api into a real nice JS lib that you can just load: <script type="text/javascript" src="https://apis.google.com/js/api.js?onload=onApiLoad"></script>
    <script>

    Some usage: http://stackoverflow.com/a/22484429/4142536

    I'd love for this to exist for OneNote authentication. It should be dead-simple for me to integrate one-note into my JS web-app.

  6. Keep the github samples up to date

    As you add new capabilities, please update your samples on GitHub. I am particularly interested in the windows phone and windows store app samples.

  8. Why the width property does not work in OneNote API ?

    I try to Capture web page snapshots with the OneNote API follow the document :

    http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dn575431(v=office.15).aspx

    But I found the width property does not work allways.

    When I set the width to 200,300,600 or 800px, the render result is 1024px.

    Who can help me ?

    <img data-render-src="http://www.bing.com&quot; width="200"/>

    This is a regression on our side. We’ll mark this request as “Finished” once we’ve fixed it. Thank you for bringing it to our attention!

    Cheers,

  9. Add-in Samples alongside API Samples

    I would love to see an end to end add-in sample that we can leverage. Today they are in peoples blogs, etc. and it is important to know when to use one or another.

  10. Include a 'parent' property for Pages and Sections

    Include a parent property in API results so you can work backwards for the tree (or can build a tree with a single API call).

  11. OneNote Lens API

    It would be great for there to be an API which allows the user of OneNote Lens camera scanning functions.

    I'd like to be able to scan documents and have the API return the cleaned up image and OCR data to my app.

    My app would then allow the user to enter metadata onto the image in the same way notes can be added to PDF documents. The metadata would then be used to group and categorize the files, allowing the user to automatically archive similar documents.

  12. Code spell-check

    Spell checking in areas with the "code" style should be smart about word separation. For example, "sector_size", "sectorSize", and "SectorSize" should be spell checked the same as "sector size".

    Currently my code snippets show a lot of spelling errors, which is distracting.

    I don't know if applying the "code" style embeds any semantic markup in the page, or if it just applies a monospaced font, but I guess you'd need that too.

  13. Support Instant Ink-to-Text Recognition in Multiple Languages

    API support for on canvas instant ink-to-text recognition in multiple languages.

    Currently there is an ink-to-text recognition function in one-note, but only as an edit option, and results of accuracy are still quite mixed. Would be nice if there was a canvas option for live ink-to-text recognition (e.g. see Myscript Mobile). This would vastly improve the user experience of onenote and is in essence the missing piece in the whole onenote experience. Have been waiting for this function for years now.

  15. Real-Time Stylus Input APIs

    There's a lot of cool stuff that could be done, such as custom OCR, stylizing/changing handwriting in real-time.
