  1. Easily indent first line of paragraphs

    Allow easy indentation of the first line of paragraphs, similar to word or other word processors. Right now I'm putting spaces before the first sentence to give the appearance of indentation. Currently, actually "indenting" the paragraph moves the entire paragraph over.

  2. Ability to turn off automatic numbering in OneNote.

    I cannot seem to turn off automatic numbering in OneNote.
    If I want to write an abbreviation for example:
    Instead of Brachypelma Hamorii, I want to write "B. Hamorii"... It won't allow me to do this. It thinks the "B." is a bullet point.
    Its very troublesome.

    Thank you.

  4. Make it look more like Apple Notes.

    Why are my notes appearing in this little text-box? What's the point of this? Why not just design it like a notes app? You're over-thinking the very simple act of note taking. This is the ugliest UI I've ever seen in a note-taking app.

  5. Please add the buttons to zoom in and out the text quickly as in Word!!

    I can't believe that in 2019 you still can't enlarge and reduce the text as quickly as in Word, without having to click on the number every time or even to write it....

    it seems like Microsoft doesn't even listen to our needs or advice

  6. Shortcut to change text colour

    I use one note to take notes from lectures, often I want to switch quickly from one colour to another in the text but it is quite cumbersome to have to go and change it from the menu each time. I was wondering if there was a way you could set a shortcut for colour changing.

    Thanks!

  7. 19MB is not enough space

    19 mb is not enough space to insert into a notebook. Notebooks should be a place to save items. If I am restricted by this small space I am not able to add things like power point presentations or videos

  8. Dropdown list for subfolders.

    OneNote should enable drop down lists for subfolders. This is a dealbreaker! Please make it happen!

  11. Randomly scrolls to the top of the page

    When reading or scrolling down my one note page, it will suddenly go back up to the top! This is frustrating especially when im reading lecture slides 100+ pages long and I am constantly having to go back down to find the slide i was on!!

  15. Allow shortcut to symbols (--> leading to →) etc.

    Vote for this if you'd like keyboard shortcuts available in Word to also be available in OneNote.

  16. Please use the navigation pane from version 16.22 and before

    In the latest Version 16.23 - when you click on the typing screen, the tabs remain but the grey bar with a search button and icon with "books" remains....I far preferred the old way which had a better layout of the notebook tabs and when you started typing the tabs would go. The grey bar is pointless and irritating since it is permanently there, takes up space (yes it matters when you are on a split screen a lot of the time!)....the previous interface was really great and this version has gone back a step. Please please please take my…

  17. When you click into the typing screen the navigation screen remains - this is annoying

    Before version 16.24 the navigation screen would disappear...now i need to click to minimise the screen and you are still left with the grey bar which serves no purpose. Please go back to how it was as this is not good.

  18. Table Tools for OneNote on MAC

    The Table Tools tool doesn't exist for OneNote on MAC.
    Also is it possible to add border and colors to segments in a page?

    this helps segregate sections inside a page.

  19. Links for Sub-Group Sections and Sub-Group Pages don't stick

    Links for Sub-Group Sections and Sub-Group Pages don't stick, they link back to the last Section or last Page clicked on within the sub.

    For example, I create a Sub Group Section with Sections below it. I link to the Main Sub-Group Section. If I navigate around the Sections that are part of this Sub-Group Section, and then later on come back to a page where I linked to that Sub-Group Section, it will link back to the last Section I was on within that sub-group Section. The same can be said for Sub-Group Pages and Pages.

    Think of it…
