  3. To Do

    I often use the To Do checkbox when making a list of action items during meetings. It would be excellent if when I clicked the To Do checkbox to mark the action items as completed that two things occurred:
    1. Display a date & time stamp when the box was checked and lock the box against accidentally unchecking, but make it easy to uncheck if necessary. Suggest a double click to uncheck.
    2. Provide a way to enter a comment about the item being checked off. For instance, if I followed up with someone to get an answer to a…

  5. Allow more and custom colours options for 'text highlight colour' and auto straighten the highlighter

    I am a bit OCD in highlighting the text. I enjoy using the 'text highlight colour' button in the home column to colour code the text more than the highlighter options in the draw column. As the highlighter doesn't allow me to highlight text with a straight line.

  6. My Idea is, you can download every page and write and draw onto it. While its still on OneNote

    You can download each page while still being on OneNote, so you can draw and write straight onto it.

  9. Multiple accounts in oneNote on Mac

    I have two accounts that I would like to use with OneNote but it is very inconvenient to sign out and sign back into both accounts. I would like seamless switching so i can use both accounts for instance my work account and my school account.

  10. Extra expandable width in "page column" on main OneNote window

    Recommend to allow adjustment of "page title column" width to a much greater degree.

    In the main window/view of OneNote, the column width for page titles (between "Notebooks" and actual page content) only expands to a narrow limit and then stops. So, pages with longer titles, such as web clippings, get cut off and it's difficult to read them...That requires that one clicks on the actual note to figure out what the page might be about. This wastes a lot of time and effort.

  11. Line spacing feature

    It would be better if there is some way to adjust or align line and paragraph spacing. The spacing varies if you copy and paste texts from elsewhere and you don't have a way to unify them except pasting the whole format.

  14. OneNote for Mac needs a word count function.

    OneNote for Mac needs a word count function. I've been using OneNote for essays, but having to copy text into Word to get a word count is kind of a pain.

  16. 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

  19. 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?

  20. Improved equation functionality (hopefully to the same level as Microsoft Word)

    In Microsoft Word you are able to insert an equation and then manipulate it with a variety of mathematical tools; unfortunately this doesn't seem to be the case in OneNote yet!

    Please, from an A-Level Further Mathematician, improve this before long!
