  3. 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.

  5. Tabbed Interface like an Internet Browser

    This is NOT about the tabs for notebooks sections.

    Can we have a tabbed interface like an internet browser? I'd like to be able to right-click a note and tell it to open in a tab so I can choose a few notes to be able to quickly go back and forth between them. Right now, it takes a lot longer than it needs to, and usually requires switching notebooks or searching for the right note I need.

    I have hundreds of notes in various notebooks and sections, and I would like the ability to quickly switch back and forth…

  6. Add macOS spotlight functionality to Onenote

    It would be great if I could see onenote content when using MacOS spotlight to get straight into the action. Instead of clicking the app, clicking search or browsing through notebooks, opening a note via MacOS spotlight would be a dream come true.

  9. 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.

  10. Enable task synchronization with Microsoft ToDo/Lists.

    Enable the ability to create a OneNote task that syncs with Microsoft ToDo/Lists. If that is not possible, how about enabling the ability to create Outlook tasks in OneNote like the Windows counterpart version of OneNote. (for reference see https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/create-outlook-tasks-in-onenote-19725ff3-0234-495d-9838-fb1f511e924f).

  12. Add a ruler to OneNote for Mac and iOS

    Similar to how Apple does it for Notes - it helps with the drawing of graphs and objects!

  13. 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.

    Smart Grid

    Many graphic based apps now use smart grids and smart guides to help align text and picture elements. This would be really useful on OneNote

  19. 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…

  20. Mirroring or synchronizing cells in tables (as done in tabs in Excel)

    Add a function lo link cells in tables, so that updating one also changes any linked cells within the same or different page. In general, more advanced Excel features would be greatly appreciated.
