  3. Search function

  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. Sort Pages by Date

    Surely someone has already requested this because it seems so obvious, but please allow Pages to be sorted by date (and ideally users could opt to sort alphabetically, etc.).

    Ordering Pages by most recent should be the default. When I use a physical notebook, my notes are in order based on date, because each new page follows the page most recently used. Why are pages in OneNote, which looks to replicate the "notebook" experience, sorted differently?

    And how, exactly, are the pages sorted? From what I can tell it is random, which is the most USELESS of possible page orders.

  7. Templates for Mac

    The "template function" Onenote gave us, was not at all what we wanted.

    We've been waiting five years for this function!

  10. Build in some templates like you do for Microsoft Word, Excel & PowerPoint for example. Especially creative looking pages.

    Built-in Templates like Microsft Word/Excel/PowerPoint, etc.:

    I reckon that building in some templates as you do for Microsoft Word, Excel & PowerPoint, for example, will increase people using the program. Especially for those of us who like creative looking pages but may not have the skill to find and import beautiful and well-functioning pages.

    I am a member of a Facebook group devoted to OneNote and sharing examples of its abilities etc. When the Admin asked the group a question to copy and paste a creative looking and functional page there were no replies. Later in the month, someone posted…

  11. 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

  15. Bidirectional linking between pages

    Introduce bi-directional links between pages: If note A links to page B, an entry is added at the bottom of page B that links to page A. Note B thus collects its contexts, and note A becomes part of note B's context.

    This is a fantastic feature introduced by Zettelkasten and Roam Research to use notes not only as memory, but for systematic thinking. It implements the Zettelkasten Method by Nikolas Luhmann (or in a modern take: Smart Notes by Soehnke Ahrens).
    see https://roamresearch.com/ and http://zettelkasten.danielluedecke.de/

  16. Search within PDF printout

    I am unable to search for words within a PDF printout. The only words that are search-able are those that I actually type into OneNote.

    Please consider this because this will make OneNote far more superior than any other note-taking app.

  17. Tabbed Interface like an Internet Browser

    This is NOT about the tabs for notebooks sections.

    Can we have a tabbed interface like an internet browser? I'd like to be able to right-click a note and tell it to open in a tab so I can choose a few notes to be able to quickly go back and forth between them. Right now, it takes a lot longer than it needs to, and usually requires switching notebooks or searching for the right note I need.

    I have hundreds of notes in various notebooks and sections, and I would like the ability to quickly switch back and forth…
