  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.

  4. 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. 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.

  6. Create a task in OneNote and have it appear in To Do and Outlook Task.

    currently task created in OneNote do not appear in the Outlook Task or in To Do. Having this integration would be a significant productivity boost.

  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.

  11. 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.

  12. dark mode and light mode

    You should add a dark mode and light mode option on OneNote specifically without changing the whole computers mode. I personally like dark mode but I need to use light mode for school, so my MacBook is always in light mode when I prefer to be in dark mode.

  13. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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).
