  2. Ability to add border to text boxes (and fill) & Ability to add thumbnails of images which expand on click

    Both so simple. I write in the nice, flexible boxes, then want a border to distinguish this from other but i have to draw a rectangle but then i always have to adjust the rectangle to the text box when expanding and shifting.
    When I add large images from slides, I want a thumbnail.
    If i make it big enough to read it takes up the whole screen and ruins my layout.

  4. Integration with various smartpens

    Increase integration with popular smartpen products, such as Equil, LiveScribe, and the new Neo 2 Smartpen. Should include the ability to transfer the vector graphics and integration of synchronized audio with notes.

  5. find

    Should be able to search documents better. Only being able to type one word when it might be a phrase you are looking for is annoying. Also, the found word does not lineup to where the actual word is so I still have to search entire pages for the one word I typed.

  6. why would teacher see students notes>

    I think it's unncessary for teachers to be able to see student's notes on "Student Notebooks" because there could be a personal information
    or a note that teachers does not have to have access to it.

  8. REST API to create hyperlinks to objects on a page

    A REST method like GetHyperLinkToObject Method in the OneNote client API would be very handy to create multiple pages with links between them. Since page objects can already be retrieved with an id, the REST method to generate an hyperlink would take that id and turn it into a hyperlink which can be used to navigate to that object on the page

  10. Developer Token for immediate access to own notebooks

    Evernote provides a special "Developer Token" for developers to manipulate items in the own accounts. The token is passed in the header or as part of the REST URL and does not require a refresh token. It would be nice to have a similar feature in the OneNote API to be able to access/modify information in my own notebooks as most of my development is for my own use.

  11. calculator

    it would be great to have a calculator that will log all calculations then allow notes to be added. this would be great to work out costs and bills with the sync feature and being able to share notes this would be very convenient in many work places i know and to work out yearly bills etc.

  13. WordPress App support for Notebooks on Office 365

    Currently the WordPress Plugin only supports Logging in via a Microsoft Account. It would be great if the plugin could be used with school or organizational accounts.

  14. Additional new modern templates.

    The ones built in are really outdated, There should be a Onenote category on https://templates.office.com/ as well. Being able to share templates is what makes Word really awesome.

  15. Insert blank lines between two entries

    Create an easy way to add blank lines between entries on a page in OneNote (on my desktop PC). Example: I have a page for household repairs. First item is a note dated 7/15/2013. Second entry is dated 7/15/2015 and starts just after the 2013 item. Now I want to insert an overlooked item, dated 7/15/2014! Doing that is tedious. I'd like to just "insert" a new unrelated blank line between two entries, and I could enlarge it from there while typing.
