  1. 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.

  2. Equations in Dark Mode

    It would be nice to be able to use equations in Dark Mode. As for now, it is white font on a white background, so I cant#t see what I'm typing

  4. Print: the width exceed the paper width!!!!!!

    Unable to print a page: the width is too large and exceed the page.
    Please fix this problem!!! In OneNote 2016 for Windows it works pretty well (however, same problem in OneNote for Windows 10).

    It’s been YEARS since this problem exists!!!!!!

  6. 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.

  9. Phrase search not working on Catalina

    When I insert the phrase I want to search within "", I do get the page/pages where that phrase is found, but the phrase itself is not highlighted, which means I have to read through the whole thing to find where that key phrase is, making this nice option useless.

  10. Add the ability to import OneNote 2016 (windows) files to your Mac OneNote

    Add the ability to import OneNote 2016 (windows) files to your Mac OneNote . I cant easily use the notes created in OneNote 2016 for Windows on my Mac.. Its a bit expensive to have to purchase vmware fusion, Office 365 (windows version ) to be able to load one note file on a Mac.

  14. Custom keyboard shortcut option in menu

    Please provide an option in the onenote menu where we can either change or create custom keyboard shortcuts for all onenote editing features; ie. things like “paste text only” and “clear All Formatting”. The lack of customization is extremely frustrating especially when the keyboard shortcuts given are inconsistent with standard/well-known text editing practices or more-so when the shortcut given includes a cumbersome 4 keys to access the intended functionality.

  18. Search issue : Problem with Searching exact Phrase using Quotes

    Note that using quotes eg. “my phrase” is not working in latest version of Mac Onenote app version 16.33. When we are using quotes, it also picks up hyperlinks as searched results thus do not go directly to required exact phrase. Please rectify it asap.

  20. It appears when I have multiple windows open, that OneNote fails to sync to a SharePoint hosted Notebook.

    Ensure that when multiple windows are open for a SharePoint hosted Notebook that it doesn't error in saving.
