  3. 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!

  7. 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.

  9. ONE NOTE NEEDS A MAC BACK UP SOLUTION

    Currently (may 2020) there are no prompts for backing up One note on a Mac... and all the web "help" that shows exports back up etc for Onenote/ Mac seem to have been only functional on previous versions of OneNote . It would be ideal to have to have the desktop version on Onenote be able to export a back up locally - and avoid the confusing and slow web interface -thank you :)

  14. 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.

  15. Bring back ‘search by author’

    One Note 16 allowed you to search all pages, sections and notebook by author so you could view the contributions of an individual student in a list. This helps greatly with writing the students formative assessment every fortnight. Now I have to look through all pages and posts manually which takes a great deal of time. This was one of the main reasons I started using One Note. This feature is not on One Note 365 or One Note for Mac.

    Hallo,
    please bring back the ruler. It was a very helpful feature to draw with the trackpad.

  18. 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…

  19. Get Syncing working

    My OneNote spends about 70% of the time unable to sync. Sometimes exiting OneNote and re-running it gets it going but "encouraging" syncing is now taking significant time.

    When syncing is failing, OneDrive, Excel, Work, etc. all work fine. It's just OneNote syncing that's failing.

    I'm now at the point of switching to a system that works as sync'ing is a pretty important feature of the system.

  20. OneNote for Mac needs a page sizing option to match the paper size for PDFs and printouts

    OneNote might be a great tool if access is needed to notes at times across multiple devices and if finding things in a physical notebook proves difficult.

    However, should I need to print out my notes or share PDF copies of my notes with others, knowing where the pages cut off is a necessity, since it impacts how tables and graphs are places, their sizing, and whether paragraphs will be cut off.
