  1. Printing on Mac is a huge problem. Please make it work.

    There does not seem to be a way of printing from one note within the boundary's of a sheet of paper. This is a huge issue. Apple's Numbers is a good example of good user control when printing but With OneNote it would bee good if we could just print within the width of the paper.

    Thank you

  5. Display more tags and headings

    Currently, the menu bar on the Mac version is giving up quite a bit of horizontal space on large monitors. Using the horizontal space to display tags and headers would be useful. Also, it would be great if there were a way to display the tags and headings in a side menu. When I need to mark up lots of notes at once, having ready access would speed things up.

  6. Icon and functionality right from Mac Menu Bar

    I think it will be ideal to instead of opening Onenote and letting it sit at the dock, have the option to have it sit in the Mac Menu Bar where one could immediately click on it and choose whatever one wishes to do. In a fast pace work environment, that helps a lot. I would actually leave Evernote if Onenote has that option and not having to open it all the way from Launchpad any time I wish to work in Onenote... and I am constantly working with Onenote. That will be very handy and technically advantageous.

    For me,…

  8. ADD LINE SPACING LIKE IN WORD

    HY CANT I DOUBLE SPACE. TO MAKE A SPACE BETWEEN LINES THAT IS NOT THE SAME SIZE AS THE FONT I'M USING, I HAVE TO PRESS ENTER, CHANGE THE FONT TO SIZE 8, PRESS ENTER, THEN CHANGE THE FONT SIZE TO 14. TOO MUCH WORK.

  9. Fix online OneNote Notebook Importer tool for Mac users

    The OneNote Notebook Importer tool (link at: https://support.office.com/en-ie/article/export-and-import-onenote-notebooks-a4b60da5-8f33-464e-b1ba-b95ce540f309) does NOT WORK on an update Mac (OS 10.14.5) and OneNote (16.27). Notebooks can be exported by following the advice on this page, but the exported notebooks cannot be imported (directly) back into a Mac. After much difficulty (MS phone advisers!) and some assistance (some responses to questions on MS Community), I have found that is only possible to import the exported Notebooks on a Windows PC. It doesn't work on a Mac, despite what is said on MS guidance page (link above, which needs to be corrected and currently wrong…

  12. searching for more than one word is not efficient..

    in case of searching for a phrase...it gives isolated instances of either words alone which is useless...
    for ex- if I search for "abdominal cavity" , instead of giving the exact instance it gives all results for abdomen alone and cavity alone...

  14. Export/Download Notebooks

    Please allow us to export/download/transfer notebooks to our personal computer or another account. I'm going to lose my notes because we have to switch accounts for storage and I can't transfer my notes.

  15. Ability to print

    The current Mac version which I have paid for via my 365 subscription effectively makes printing impossible - this is quite ridiculous and would not pass a programming 101 university course - please rectify so that the page setup can correctly display on a page.

    This is not up to the standard befitting a great company like Microsoft.

    I know you can do better.

  16. Pick-list 'Tag'

    OK, not **precisely** a tag but similar to the quick-pick functionality of the 'to-do' checkbox tag. We create tables in OneNote that serve as forms, to be filled in each month in a shared notebook on SharePoint. It would be great to have an element/tage that I, as the author, can populate with multiple values so that, when placed anywhere on the page -- a table cell, in our case-- the user can just click on it and select one of the pre-defined values. (Someone else is going to add here that they should also be able to define the…

  17. Export OneNote notes to Word

    Exporting OneNote for Mac notes to Word would add so much flexibility to the OneNote application...and to the Office "ecosystem" in general.

  18. Go Back (back button and/or keyboard shortcut)

    I would appreciate this as a button or a shortcut - I tend to group my notes by topic, but sometimes the notes I need are in a different place altogether such that I need to use the FIND function (thank you so much for making that able to search across all notebooks). Once I get to the place with the notes I need, I would like an easy way to get back to where I was before

  19. Bring back the tab nagivation

    Hi, I have been using OneNote 2016 and it has become my favorite program for organizing everything. I have tried many other notebooks and note-keeping programs/apps; I have found that the layout of OneNote 2016 works the best for me. It is formatted as close to a physical notebook as I have found and that has helped me transition from a disorganized paper mess to a consolidated location for information. I am now trying to switch to OneNote for Windows 10. I have spent time with the program and adjusted to almost all of the changes, the new features are…

  20. Horizontal scrolling and Page Separation

    Hi,

    In Goodnotes, there is a possibility of viewing all your pages in a thumbnail mode and going to a particular page as per convenience. Also you can create a new page and horizontally scroll just like a physical notebook.

    Can this feature be added in Microsoft OneNote?

    I have been using OneNote for a while but i really miss the feature of horizontal scrolling and viewing all your pages at once in thumbnail mode. What do you guys think?
