  1. OneNote for Mac should be fully like OneNote 2016 client

    OneNote for Mac client should have all the features and functions of the Windows OneNote 2016. One of the biggest fails is the ability to Store notebooks on your local hard drive instead of in the cloud, including backups.

    The biggest fail of the OneNote road map for both Windows and Mac is making both versions a stripped down shell of what it was. Instead of removing features of OneNote 2016 for those who purchase Office suites, OneNote should have all the new features that is going into the "free" version and retain all of the features supported by the…

  2. Printing on Mac is a huge problem. Please make it work.

    There does not seem to be a way of printing from one note within the boundary's of a sheet of paper. This is a huge issue. Apple's Numbers is a good example of good user control when printing but With OneNote it would bee good if we could just print within the width of the paper.

    Thank you

  4. OneNote for Mac needs a page sizing option to match the paper size for PDFs and printouts

    OneNote might be a great tool if access is needed to notes at times across multiple devices and if finding things in a physical notebook proves difficult.

    However, should I need to print out my notes or share PDF copies of my notes with others, knowing where the pages cut off is a necessity, since it impacts how tables and graphs are places, their sizing, and whether paragraphs will be cut off.

  5. Please bring back the option of hiding the navigation pane.

    I used to have the option to "hide navigation pane" when I was working within a note. After the newest update, I can no longer do that. The navigation pane is constantly present and even when "minimizing" it with the slide bars, it still takes up too much space on the screen.

  6. Bring back ‘search by author’

    One Note 16 allowed you to search all pages, sections and notebook by author so you could view the contributions of an individual student in a list. This helps greatly with writing the students formative assessment every fortnight. Now I have to look through all pages and posts manually which takes a great deal of time. This was one of the main reasons I started using One Note. This feature is not on One Note 365 or One Note for Mac.

  9. Table formatting

    Give OneNote for Mac the same rich level of Table formatting as is available in Word. Perhaps add a Table Ribbon element. Options such as border colour, style, weight; alternating row formats, vertical alignment, quick styles,sorting a table by a given column etc should all exist.

  12. Safari Extension

    The latest version of MacOS and Safari requires extensions to be located in the Mac App Store. Others have made this part of the app if you download from the App Store. This would make using OneNote on the Mac a much better experience.

  14. tag summary

    Need a way to create the tag summary page on a Mac! It appears to have been dropped from the Mac version of OneNote and is a huge feature to be able to create a tag summary from 1 to multiple pages of notes.

  15. The ability to hide and show specific navigation panes

    With the new OneNote layout you can no longer choose whether you want to hide all navigation panes, if you want to show pages or if you want to show both sections and pages. We want that function back.

    Also vote this if you in general think the OneNote team should prioritize adding new functions instead of making changes in the navigation, that nobody asked for.

  16. Import(photo, sketch and scan) from IPad or Iphone directly while working on Mac

    recently MacOS have given feature "IMPORT FROM IPAD" which include feature to TAKE PHOTOS, SKETCH or SCAN documents while working on OneNote in MAC.

    FEATURE;- https://support.apple.com/en-in/guide/mac-help/mchl74e7c6df/mac
    App such as Apple's NOTES give this feature
    It will be great to have this feature on OneNote

    Interface of Apple's NOTES :- https://ibb.co/LrfgpXd
    While importing on Desktop :- https://ibb.co/cgRmj1q

    SUGGESTED IDEAS

    Concept1:- https://ibb.co/9wh6DgT
    By giving a feature in INSERT on menu bar, or

    Concept2 :-https://ibb.co/98XzGPP
    Importing Directly by Rightclicking in work area

  17. Please remove grey sidebar and reintroduce fully hideable side bar - like in older versions

    Previous versions you could hide the side bar completely and be left with a small arrow on top left screen to reopen side bar - this worked well.

    New update now has a pointless grey side bar which is PERMANENTLY THERE and requires multiple clicks to access and reduce pages notebooks etc

    Not only is it annoying and pointless, this takes up precious screen space.....please change what you like but having the ability to have a whole text screen free from waste of space is fundamental, simple and absolutely necessary.

  19. OneNote for Mac "Loading Page" Takes Forever Since 16.27 (1907)

    I would really appreciate if some OneNote Engineering team could take a look at this issue:
    OneNote for Mac "Loading Page" Takes Forever Since 16.27 (1907) (https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/forum/all/onenote-for-mac-loading-page-takes-forever-since/181099b0-43c0-468c-998b-073a4a1b7298).

  20. Equations in Dark Mode

    It would be nice to be able to use equations in Dark Mode. As for now, it is white font on a white background, so I cant#t see what I'm typing
