  3. OneNote UWP add-in API

    OneNote UWP add-in APIs are essential to a successful OneNote-Office transition to UWP. Office-OneNote add-in capability have a healthy ecosystem for customized user-developer functionality, such as Onetastic, OneNote UWP add-in APIs should be sustained to empower users-developers to provide unusual or domain specific functionality, which can quickly be developed and deployed to meet domain-specific user-needs and become candidates for eventual OneNote PWS integration. As an example, an Office-OneNote healthcare Electronic Medical Record (EMR) set of macros is used for clinicians to maintain patient records for small medical practices. Losing OneNote Office API integration decreases the Microsoft value proposition.

  4. 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.

  5. Surface Pen, make the color shift by pressing the right click button on the pen.

    The competition can do it too, it would be such a nice feature and many people want that. I could code it myself in 10 minutes, just ask 😉

  7. 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

  14. 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…

  16. 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.

  20. 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
