  3. Requiring To Make An Account Before Using OneNote

    I would like to not have to make a Microsoft account to use this application. Windows users don't have to make a Microsoft account to use One Note why should I.

    Please update the program to work on a mac without signing in. I want all of my data with me not with Microsoft.

    Until this gets fixed I can't use the program.

  5. Mac native textclipping support

    The Mac has the built in capability to highlight a section of text and then drag that selected text to the desktop. That text is now saved a plain text file with the file extension of .textclipping. When that file dragged onto another app, it automatically pastes the file contents as plain text inline, into what ever app you drop it onto. This is a great feature when 3rd party apps support it. Please, Microsoft add support for this.

  6. Keyboard shortcut to switch windows

    While having multiple windows now is great, I don't see a quick way to switch windows using the keyboard. Command + Tab switches to another application, and Control + Tab or Option + Tab don't work. I have to use a three finger swipe down and click to switch windows.

  8. Bug: Opening a notebook shared by a third party does not work in v16.10

    This works in v15.41 but is broken in v16.9 and 16.10.

    I have worked through this with Partner Support under Ref: 7395579 and they have agreed it is an issue that needs addressed.

    They tell me it is noted around the Communities as an issue and cannot advise if it will be fixed any time soon.

  10. Allow for font sizes lower than 8 to be the default under Edit & View on Preferences

    At the moment you can only put the lowest font size as 8, would be great if it can go lower than that. I use size 6 quite often and it can be hard to keep up with lectures, resize and arrange it around the slides.

  11. Why isn't there a romaji dictionary?

    I hate taking notes in Japanese class and quickly writing the terms down on my Latin keyboard. Every word I write immediately gets underlined in red and I have to go back and press Add to Dictionary. I'm slowly making my own Romaji dictionary, but having one installed would be so much easier.

  13. The ability to save a recording as smooth as Notability

    The current audio recording does not appear to run as a background process and locks out the typing/drawing in OneNote. This is effectively making it an either/or scenario. Not very useful.

  14. Developer tab - similar to that in Word

    It would be really useful for me to be able to create pages with 'set' scaffolding that can be 'locked' like it can be in Word. This would allow me to add worksheets and assessments to OneNote, instead of students having to download a word doc.

  16. Is there any user value to using OneNote in "local" mode only? Can it be so configured? How? I don't want to "share" w/ anyone.

    I recently upgraded to Office 2016. OneNote is new to me. When I first opened it, I was unpleasantly surprised by your "Welcome" note. That is when I realized that one of the fundamental uses of OneNote was "sharing" and that it automatically opened a shared access into my computer. I don't want that. I'd be willing to explore OneNote for my own personal use in "local" mode only. Is this possible? I've closed OneNote and will not open it again depending on your reply Thanks.

  18. Major Search Bug In OneNote

    When you do a search the found words are highlighted in yellow box. When you close the search then those yellow boxes do not disappear but remain on top of all app windows (all open apps). They seem no longer linked to the OneNote window - move the OneNote app window and the old uncleared search hi-light boxes remain fixed on screen. Only way to clear them is to exit OneNote and restart it.

    This is a major bug as the words that don't disappear stay on top of all applications and the only way to clear them is to…

  20. Mac: upgrade Fonts

    I usually use OneNote on my Mac and on my iPad. The thing is that on my iPad there're a bunch of fonts which on OneNote for Mac don't appear. I know I can individually download each font I use on my iPad so it appears on Mac, but as there's the option of (easily) changing the font in a specific typography on an iPad, why can't there be the same option for OneNote on a Mac decice?
