  1. Mac side

    it would be great if you could hide the sidebar and menubar and ONENOTE branding at the top. (in mac) because while using in split view in mac, these two are taking up redundant space. there you go room for improvement, literally!

  4. Allow OneNote to customize multilevel lists like Word allows.

    Being able to have different bullet point characteristics by simply tabbing over makes note taking in lectures so much easier.

  5. Synonyms

    Just like Word, I really would like OneNote to have the synonyms dictionary feature, it's really helpful in Word, but I prefer to use OneNote for study

  7. iPad screen interruption frustration

    When I am writing in OneNote and temporarily lose connectivity to the online cloud, a small header/window/popup appears and says something like: 'working offline.' Every time this message appears, it displaces and pushes all screen content down about 1/3 an inch. Invariably, when I am writing and this happens mid-word, my handwritten notes get jumbled and illegible. With frequent connectivity/disconnection problems, this screen-shifting messes up my notes quite a bit and i have to go back and rewrite a LOT.

    Make this message "Working offline" behave as an OVERLAY; over the current page contents. It does NOT need to displace…

  10. Make OneNote synch better to Apple Watch - mega delays

    There is an Apple Watch OneNote option but its painfully slow and often fails to synch making it unreliable. Please give it the MS kiss of life.

  11. An index of pdf and file inserts to appear under page headings

    At the top of each page the file title or pdf title can appear at the start of each page in a notebook, with a link to go straight to it.

  12. Please add a 'properties' item showing notebook location

    Please add a 'properties' item showing notebook location. At present it can be very difficult to reconcile notebook storage location when accessing shared notebooks across multiple locations or via several email addresses.

  15. Keybindings for Drawing Shapes

    We should have keybindings for the shapes tool and other drawing tools as well. At least let us put them in the titlebar like a browser extension so we don't have to clumsily traverse a menu with our Wacoms.

  17. Add in keyboard shortcuts for subscript and superscript

    Having to click a button at the top of the screen every time I want to enter or exit subscript is quite time consuming when I'm doing things like typing chemical formulas and equations etc, having keyboard shortcuts like in Word would save me a lot of time!

  18. Collapsable List (toggle)

    I would appreciate it if the collapsable list feature was developed a little bit more to be quicker to use. Since currently, I rely on Notions toggle feature when I want to quiz myself on my notes by hiding the answer parts of my notes.

  20. Allow OneNote to detect language automatically.

    Allow OneNote to detect language automatically because it's very annoying having to change this by yourself, and it doesn't really work well, sometimes it doesn't change the configuration even though you change it. For people like me who writes in different languages, it'd be awesome.
