    • Template with default font

      Defining the type and size of the default font in templates is a basic feature that should not be missing.

      • A Few Things

        Voice to text for efficiency
        Searchable tags
        Tab sections at top of notebook again- it's getting too crowded on the side of the note page- I know you can hide it but section tabs do not stand out visually

                  • Programmer Friendly Pages and Features

                    I would like to be able to switch individual pages to a "Programmer Mode" or have some kind of "Frames" to put programming code or commands in. I'm tired of the first letter of every line being capitalized automatically, auto correct changing words in my code, and everything being underlined as a misspelled word.

                    • Get/Put RAW page data

                      Hi,

                      I want to get and put the raw data for a page, so that I don't have to parse the HTML rendered page and download the resources, and maybe have to wait for another API for supporting Ink or other extension generated data. And I'd like to avoid generate multipart http request just to restore what I downloaded.

                      And want this integrated to MS GRAPH API C# DLL so that I don't have to create raw http(s) request.

                      • Enabling Column Merging

                        In Word and Excel columns and rows can be merged. However, 'merging' is not a function in OneNote. This means copying and pasting between the said programs becomes difficult at times.

                            • ink equation training

                              I want to input \leftrightarrow by ink equation, but i can't. I tried to correct it, but there is no choice of \leftrightarrow. So, why not give a choice to uers to input what we want in the correction choice section and let the ink equation learn my habites.

                                Hi,
                                On the next upgrade / release, could you please develop an ability to lock headers / rows within a column, as it is very difficult to manage big tables within the team.

                                    It would be great to insert comments like in word.
                                    or as recently implemented wikipedia.
                                    Putting the mouse up or clicking will pop up a comment.

                                      • Make tags on the entire note available through the API

                                        Although OneNote tags on page elements (e.g. <p>) show up in the HTML content returned via the REST API prefixed with a data-tag attribute, tags on the entire note are not returned.
                                        Jorge Aguirre believes that the right way of representing this information is to add the data-tag attribute to the HTML->head->title element.
                                        More about this feature (or rather, current lack of it) at:
