  1. Save as .docx

    Formatting always gets messed up when copying and pasting from OneNote to Word. It would be a great feature to be able to save whole sections, or at least pages as .docx files. In the alternative, please PLEASE allow us to save whole sections as one PDF file.

  3. Bring back ‘search by author’

    One Note 16 allowed you to search all pages, sections and notebook by author so you could view the contributions of an individual student in a list. This helps greatly with writing the students formative assessment every fortnight. Now I have to look through all pages and posts manually which takes a great deal of time. This was one of the main reasons I started using One Note. This feature is not on One Note 365 or One Note for Mac.

  4. Maybe less autocorrection?

    You are correcting things for no reason and adding extra capitalization.

  6. Enable "tree" type of structure where I can make section to become a page and vice versa

    The number of section keeps growing and eventually becomes overcrowded. There is this concept of a "page" and a "section", but what I would like to be able to do is to make a "page" out of a "section" by just dragging section into another section...or vice versa, to make the section out of a page. So I want to be able to build a tree...

  7. Let us be able to edit our default text

    Create an easy to find setting where we can edit our default text. With things like colours, size and font. Maybe even multiple presets

  10. Open up multiple saved ink colours // Personalise colours for pens and highlighters

    I use OneNote for my university studies to highlight and annotate slides and am not a huge fan of the bright fluorescent highlighter colours. For this reason, I have selected my own muted pastel colours to draw with as they are less harsh on the page and eyes. It would be very handy if instead of having to reselect these same colours every time I close the application, I propose either: » ability to open many saved customised colours simultaneously; » be able to select/create a colour theme of your choice; or » have the option of choosing and setting…

  12. Integrate with Microsoft's To Do App

    I've seen quite a few suggestions to improve the tags and to-dos in OneNote. An easier and better solution, I think, would be to integrate OneNote and other MS products with Microsoft's To Do and Teams apps.

    To Do's created on OneNote could be exported to MS's To-Do app, OneNote tags could be used to search and sort To Do's, etc. It'd be a pretty nice way of integrating and optimizing using all MS products.

  14. Search improvements, please!


    1. It'd be nice if the search bar was always present, over our notebooks, so we could still see our notebooks and pages as we search. 2. It'd be nice if the search filtered the notebooks and pages listed in realtime, without having to press enter. 3. If realtime search isn't possible, for especially long notebooks with items in alphabetical order, it'd be nice to have a narrow column of alphabet letters on the side, so we can automatically skip to the letter of entries we're looking for, for instance every entry that starts with G.

  16. Add a paper size option

    ADD PAPER SIZE OPTION

    Microsoft OneNote for Mac would be great if there is an option for paper sizes like A4, letter e.t.c.

    The fact that option is not there makes OneNote irrelevant for people who take handwritten notes and would want to make PDF files or to print. I think adding paper sizes option takes nothing, please why not consider this important option?

  17. 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.
