  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. Templates please

    please allow OneNote for Mac to create page templates. This would be so timesaving.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  7. 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

  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.

  10. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. SORTING... PLEASE!

    PLEASE...add the capability to sort pages by alphabetical order and/or by date for Onenote in ALL operating systems. This should be a feature of Onenote and NOT an add-in.

    Thank you for taking the time to complete the survey. Here are some of the results of the survey –
    • Sorting is needed for pages, sections, and notebooks
    • Sorting should persist while navigating, after close of notebook, across all devices, and be seen by people they share the notebook with
    • Current OneNote users want the following sorts – alphabetical, date created, and date modified
    • We heard from a lot of users who wanted to set section lists and page lists in a sort that they wouldn’t change often, but there was also a set of users who mentioned that they would want to live in a certain sort order, but switch to another sort order as an aid to locate specific items within their list

    Thank you again for your responses. This information helps us understand the experience we need to build to match your needs.

  14. Please have distraction free view for max where sidebar, toolbar etc everything is hiding except text window.

  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. Display more tags and headings

    Currently, the menu bar on the Mac version is giving up quite a bit of horizontal space on large monitors. Using the horizontal space to display tags and headers would be useful. Also, it would be great if there were a way to display the tags and headings in a side menu. When I need to mark up lots of notes at once, having ready access would speed things up.

  20. Have more than one account on OneNote for Mac as in Windows version

    The Windows version allows multiple OneNote accounts https://support.office.com/en-ie/article/use-multiple-microsoft-accounts-with-onenote-for-windows-10-5afff855-54ee-47e4-a773-db048d4ac299
    but that option is not available on the Mac. This would be so incredibly useful for Business users with multiple accounts and for business / personal users who would like to access both accounts simultaneously on their desktops.
