  1. Calendar View

    I would like a calendar view for edits which shows me what changes I made when. If I can't get it per edit, it would at least be useful to see when notes were updated or created on the calendarview. DayOne Journal does this for their notes and you see a filled in calendar day for days that you have notes. When you click on a day, you see the list of updates for that day.

    I'm not a student any more, but it would be a rapid way to see all the notes I took last Tuesday, for example.

  2. Custom colors for notebook tabs

    I'd love it if I didn't have to repeat colors for the different notebook tabs. I like color-coding and staying organized, and I also like customization! Please consider creating a feature where you can choose a unique/custom color for the different tabs. Thank you!

  7. Onenote add in for Mac Calendar

    In Outlook there is a OneNote add in so that from a dairy entry you can click on the One note icon on the ribbon and the meeting info will be pulled into a new Onenote note.
    Is this possible from mac calendar or Google calendar entries please.

  8. PDF Export on Mac and IOS

    When exporting form onenote on windows the exported pdf has the current paper style I chose, on IOS and Mac we are getting no paper style.

    in addition, when exporting from windows the resolution is great like it is looks like in the app on 100% view, on the Mac and iOS the proportions are all wrong it looks like it is exporting in on 60% zoom and some drawing and writings looks out of proportion.

    For me those two problems are critical for the day to day use.

  9. Dark mode / background: Toggle on a note-basis under the View pane, or app-basis disregard system settings

    Just like how some other apps, e.g. Sketch https://www.sketch.com/ approaches dark mode, users should be able to choose to toggle to a dark background on the canvas (in this case note background), the app UI (in this case the whole OneNote app including note background) disregard system settings, if they wish so.

    This way, users can have a light mode / background by default for various reasons like better visibility of some elements, (for example, https://onenote.uservoice.com/forums/327165-onenote-for-mac/suggestions/38473528-dark-mode-checkboxes), and enable dark mode only when required (on a plane with dim lights), without modifying system preferences.

  11. Resizable Toolbar

    I'm using an ultrawide screen and the toolbar fills only about 40% of the space but still shrinks font styles and tags menus. Please adapt the layout to match bigger screen sizes, having to click to expand a panel when there's so much blank space causes a poor user experience.

  12. Mac Outlook Glitch with Private Apt

    Almost all my appointments marked private, single occurrences and reoccurring, have been changed to the subject "Private Appointment." All the details have also been deleted. I add new private appointments and they immediately glitch and so this is not a one time issue. I think there is a glitch in a recent update.

  13. OneNote doesn't save my last view point when switching between pages

    It scrolls to a seemingly random point within the page - this only started happening since the last update. I am finding OneNote very difficult to use and would appreciate a bug fix.

  14. Headings Hotkey: Cmd+Opt+1 vs. Opt+Cmd+1

    Currently the hotkey Cmd+Opt+1 (Make current text to be Heading 1) only works with this sequence of hotkey. But it doesn't work when pressed with Opt first. (Opt+Cmd+1).

    Coming from Windows where I use Ctrl+Alt+1 consistently, I was wondering if Opt+Cmd+1 can also fire the said hotkey?

    P.S. On Windows, Alt+Ctrl+1 also works, flawlessly.

  16. Ability to avoid creation of "Untitled Page" each time a new section is created

    Currently each time I create a new section OneNote creates an empty page with the title "Untitled Page". This is quite annoying especially while reworking my notebook's structure where I create a lot of sections and drag existing notes to them.

    Deleting such notes is a hassle and on the other hand creating a note manually is just a single click.

  18. Search embedded files (especially those linked to OneDrive) in OneNote for Windows 10

    In the previous versions of OneNote, when files were attached (including PDFs) you could easily search for keywords and the pages which had files inserted with those words would display. This is a very important feature for productivity. When will this be added to OneNote for Windows 10?

  19. Add all the 3 Paste options one the right click menu

    Expand the right click menu to include all 3 paste options rather than the generic one.

    Also include the option to clear formatting in the right click menu too.

  20. Bug: highlight disappears in dark mode

    Highlight strokes disappear while using dark mode. This makes the highlighter unusable in dark mode.
