  2. Add vim keybindings

    Enable vim keybindings for one note. As a developer, I would love to use one note, but the lack of vim key bindings makes it difficult to transition to

  5. Table formatting

    Give OneNote for Mac the same rich level of Table formatting as is available in Word. Perhaps add a Table Ribbon element. Options such as border colour, style, weight; alternating row formats, vertical alignment, quick styles,sorting a table by a given column etc should all exist.

  6. Auto-linking with double square brackets always creates new page

    I tried to use the auto linking feature, where you type the name of page in [[ double square brackets ]].

    Expected Behavior:
    Page does not exist already: It creates a new page and creates a link to it.
    Page already exists: Link is created to existing page

    Actual behavior:
    Page does not exist already: Behavior as expected
    Page already exists: A new page is created with the same name (wrong)

    I.e. if I type 'Please see the list of [[Actions]]', a link to a new page called 'Actions' is created.

    However, if I later write 'Remember to check the…

  8. Safari Extension

    The latest version of MacOS and Safari requires extensions to be located in the Mac App Store. Others have made this part of the app if you download from the App Store. This would make using OneNote on the Mac a much better experience.

  9. Please remove grey sidebar and reintroduce fully hideable side bar - like in older versions

    Previous versions you could hide the side bar completely and be left with a small arrow on top left screen to reopen side bar - this worked well.

    New update now has a pointless grey side bar which is PERMANENTLY THERE and requires multiple clicks to access and reduce pages notebooks etc

    Not only is it annoying and pointless, this takes up precious screen space.....please change what you like but having the ability to have a whole text screen free from waste of space is fundamental, simple and absolutely necessary.

  13. tag summary

    Need a way to create the tag summary page on a Mac! It appears to have been dropped from the Mac version of OneNote and is a huge feature to be able to create a tag summary from 1 to multiple pages of notes.

  15. The ability to hide and show specific navigation panes

    With the new OneNote layout you can no longer choose whether you want to hide all navigation panes, if you want to show pages or if you want to show both sections and pages. We want that function back.

    Also vote this if you in general think the OneNote team should prioritize adding new functions instead of making changes in the navigation, that nobody asked for.

  17. ADD ABILITY TO WATERMARK FROM WITHIN ONENOTE

    I would like to see OneNote for Mac be able to place a WATERMARK (a very large faded, usually diagonal, piece of text, placed diagonally or other places,, across the document text). Usually these are used to mark the document as "DRAFT" or "TOP SECRET" and are done in such a way that the underlying document is still very readable.

  19. Save As PDF - retain hyperlinks

    In OneNote for Mac currently, the Save as PDF feature does not keep the hyperlinks, only the blue and underline formatting. Please change it so Save as PDF retains the hyperlinks in pages.

  20. Enable notebook-wide setting of proofing language

    Like in Windows, it should be possible to change a notebooks proofing langauge in one action - instead of changing it manually for every page/selection.
