  4. Improved equation functionality (hopefully to the same level as Microsoft Word)

    In Microsoft Word you are able to insert an equation and then manipulate it with a variety of mathematical tools; unfortunately this doesn't seem to be the case in OneNote yet!

    Please, from an A-Level Further Mathematician, improve this before long!

  5. Multiple accounts in oneNote on Mac

    I have two accounts that I would like to use with OneNote but it is very inconvenient to sign out and sign back into both accounts. I would like seamless switching so i can use both accounts for instance my work account and my school account.

  10. 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/

  11. OneNote for Mac needs a word count function.

    OneNote for Mac needs a word count function. I've been using OneNote for essays, but having to copy text into Word to get a word count is kind of a pain.

  13. Line spacing feature

    It would be better if there is some way to adjust or align line and paragraph spacing. The spacing varies if you copy and paste texts from elsewhere and you don't have a way to unify them except pasting the whole format.

  17. Auto-linking with double square brackets always creates new page

    I tried to use the auto linking feature, where you type the name of page in [[ double square brackets ]].

    Expected Behavior:
    Page does not exist already: It creates a new page and creates a link to it.
    Page already exists: Link is created to existing page

    Actual behavior:
    Page does not exist already: Behavior as expected
    Page already exists: A new page is created with the same name (wrong)

    I.e. if I type 'Please see the list of [[Actions]]', a link to a new page called 'Actions' is created.

    However, if I later write 'Remember to check the…
