  1. Extra expandable width in "page column" on main OneNote window

    Recommend to allow adjustment of "page title column" width to a much greater degree.

    In the main window/view of OneNote, the column width for page titles (between "Notebooks" and actual page content) only expands to a narrow limit and then stops. So, pages with longer titles, such as web clippings, get cut off and it's difficult to read them...That requires that one clicks on the actual note to figure out what the page might be about. This wastes a lot of time and effort.

  6. search function

    similar to microsoft word, allow us to search through all the key terms in the document by clicking a "next" button that will take you there, instead of having to scroll through each page to look for the highlighted term yourself

  8. Wikilinks or Backlinks

    Hi,

    I love OneNote. To make it even better, could you think about incorporating backlinks or wikilinks into the OneNote arsenal? Currently there is just option to copy/paste links to sections, notes, etc. However, these links don't update or sync in a live manner as in, if I make changes to the title of a note then the pasted link gets corrupted. We can overcome this problem using wikilinks or backlinks. This will make OneNote an amazing Knowledge base akin a digital brain for all my collected notes. Please consider including this seriously 🙏.

    You can look at RoamResearch, Obsidian…

  10. 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…

  12. Add a paper size option

    ADD PAPER SIZE OPTION

    Microsoft OneNote for Mac would be great if there is an option for paper sizes like A4, letter e.t.c.

    The fact that option is not there makes OneNote irrelevant for people who take handwritten notes and would want to make PDF files or to print. I think adding paper sizes option takes nothing, please why not consider this important option?

  13. 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!

  14. Please add "Ink to Shape" to OneNote for Mac OS

    OneNote for Mac OS does not seem to support the "Ink to Shape" feature, which is available on the Windows version and allows hand drawn shapes (for example with a graphic tablet or with the touchpad) to be converted into precise geometric shapes automatically just after drawing.

    It would be useful to add this feature to the Mac OS version.

  18. Integrate with Microsoft's To Do App

    I've seen quite a few suggestions to improve the tags and to-dos in OneNote. An easier and better solution, I think, would be to integrate OneNote and other MS products with Microsoft's To Do and Teams apps.

    To Do's created on OneNote could be exported to MS's To-Do app, OneNote tags could be used to search and sort To Do's, etc. It'd be a pretty nice way of integrating and optimizing using all MS products.

  20. If you could only merge these two software solutions...

    I can only say one thing as a linguist and online teacher with 30+ years of teaching experience.

    If you guys can merge Microsoft One Note with Mac Pages and its ability to transform, edit, group and manipulate pasted images and objects, then you would have built the most powerful teaching tool in the market.

    I use these two powerful tools to deliver the most immersive English and Spanish learning experience.
