  2. ONE NOTE NEEDS A MAC BACK UP SOLUTION

    Currently (may 2020) there are no prompts for backing up One note on a Mac... and all the web "help" that shows exports back up etc for Onenote/ Mac seem to have been only functional on previous versions of OneNote . It would be ideal to have to have the desktop version on Onenote be able to export a back up locally - and avoid the confusing and slow web interface -thank you :)

  3. search function

    similar to microsoft word, allow us to search through all the key terms in the document by clicking a "next" button that will take you there, instead of having to scroll through each page to look for the highlighted term yourself

  4. Get Syncing working

    My OneNote spends about 70% of the time unable to sync. Sometimes exiting OneNote and re-running it gets it going but "encouraging" syncing is now taking significant time.

    When syncing is failing, OneDrive, Excel, Work, etc. all work fine. It's just OneNote syncing that's failing.

    I'm now at the point of switching to a system that works as sync'ing is a pretty important feature of the system.

  5. Word count

    Please put in a word count option. I use one note to write drafts before moving it to word. It would be helpful to have this

  6. Please add "Ink to Shape" to OneNote for Mac OS

    OneNote for Mac OS does not seem to support the "Ink to Shape" feature, which is available on the Windows version and allows hand drawn shapes (for example with a graphic tablet or with the touchpad) to be converted into precise geometric shapes automatically just after drawing.

    It would be useful to add this feature to the Mac OS version.

    Hallo,
    please bring back the ruler. It was a very helpful feature to draw with the trackpad.

  13. Add a small image editor on it.

    Add a small image editor on it so that we can apply presets and make the image more sharpen, or crop it and etc like it on Power Point.

  15. OneNote for Mac should have an option to change the paper size

    OneNote for Mac currently doesn't support the functionality to change the paper size that you are working on. I use OneNote for handwritten notes but I don't know where the print margin is therefore I can't use it. Please add this feature ASAP.

    Thanks,
    Ziyaad

  17. Sync Mac iCal with OneNote

    I see there is the ability to sync outlook calendar but not iCal. It would be nice for Mac users with no outlook calendar to make notes quickly based off meetings.

  18. Allow Disabling of the automatic shifting of the screen when typing notes

    When typing notes, OneNote will automatically begin shifting the screen with every keystroke I input. It's very distracting when typing notes and creating lists requires me to move my screen back each time.
