  3. 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.

  4. Setting alerts for notes

    I would love to have a simple way to set an alert on a note. Like, remind me that this note/page exists at a certain time/date. Maybe there is a way I am unaware of, but it would streamline the process for me instead of having to go set something up in a different program.

  6. PHOTO AND IMAGE CROPPING

    Please add the ability to crop the images that you add as printouts!

    In other words, once I have selected the image it would be great if I could double click on it and get an adjustable frame to crop it.

    Thanks for existing OneNote

  7. Keyboard Shortcut to hide navigation bar (Rather than just clicking the notebooks icon)

    I prefer keyboard-centric note taking, so having to click on the sidebar icon each time to hide or show navigation is a little cumbersome. Would it be possible to introduce a keyboard shortcut to show/hide the sidebar?

  8. The same privileges in dark mode as in white mode

    i.e. the highlighter colours, the page colours, the fact that the drawing highlighter doesn't work, the fact that if I want to change from dark mode to white mode all of my previous colours switch into the darkest shade possible of that colour and I have to change all my notes

  11. 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…

  13. Cropping pictures and PDFs

    Currently it is not possible to crop pictures and PDFs in OneNote for Mac, but it would be very helpful to have this function.

  19. Transferring Notebook/document ownership

    I made a Onenote Notebook on my personal outlook, but my personal drive (5GB) is now full after 3 years of school. I want to transfer my OneNote notebook ownership to my university school account, which has unlimited OneDrive storage. I contacted Microsoft help, but they stated there is no such feature right now, and my only option is to go on my personal outlook, and try copying over the information from those notebooks to the school account and then delete them. When I was told to copy information, it meant I had to manually copy-paste the individual pages from…

  20. To Do

    I often use the To Do checkbox when making a list of action items during meetings. It would be excellent if when I clicked the To Do checkbox to mark the action items as completed that two things occurred:
    1. Display a date & time stamp when the box was checked and lock the box against accidentally unchecking, but make it easy to uncheck if necessary. Suggest a double click to uncheck.
    2. Provide a way to enter a comment about the item being checked off. For instance, if I followed up with someone to get an answer to a…
