  1. We need dark theme for notes.

    Dark theme is supported in most of the apps. It would be better if you support the same.

  2. Templates please

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

  3. OneNote for Mac needs to have all the features of the Windows version

    OneNote for Mac needs to have all the features of the Windows version.

    OneNote could replace my todo app. In fact it'd be the best todo app - I've used them all.

    But not until the Mac version is the same as the Windows version. So please update OneNote for Mac to match the Windows version.

  4. 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…

  5. 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.

  7. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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. OneNote MAC=PC Equivalency

    OneNote for Mac should be equivalent to OneNote for PC IN ALL ASPECTS!! Otherwise, we don't get what we paid for.

  13. OneNote Importer for Mac loses Loses Note Titles

    The community appreciates that OneNote Importer exists for Mac to migrate notes from Evernote to OneNote. However, Note Titles are completely missed -- I have several thousand notes and this happened for roughly half of my notes. Please fix this bug.

  14. 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.

  15. Allow Mac users to choose a Microsoft product with all its benefits

    Microsoft - please accept that making OneNote for Mac inferior to Windows version will not convert avid Mac users to Windows... it will just make us give up on OneNote... Discovered the programme having heard great things, only to find out several of the reasons I want it apply to the Mac version (PDF export, line spacing formatting, screen clipping, saving locally)... May give up, we are clearly not being listened too. Seems ridiculous as Word etc. for Mac works perfectly well

  17. Black background for OneNote

    I would love the ability to set OneNote's screen with a black background and white or colored fonts. It would rest my eyes, notably when I access OneNote at night, both on the computer and the smartphone. It would be consistent with Windows 10's ability to display dark backgrounds, notably for emails.

  20. Synchronizing ToDo items with Outlook tasks should be supported

    As an Office 365 user, in order to not waste time linking Outlook tasks with OneNote notes, I want the possibility to create ToDo items in OneNote that are automatically synchronized with Outlook tasks.
