  2. Save as .docx

    Formatting always gets messed up when copying and pasting from OneNote to Word. It would be a great feature to be able to save whole sections, or at least pages as .docx files. In the alternative, please PLEASE allow us to save whole sections as one PDF file.

  4. OneNote for Mac should have an option to change the paper size

    OneNote for Mac currently doesn't support the functionality to change the paper size that you are working on. I use OneNote for handwritten notes but I don't know where the print margin is therefore I can't use it. Please add this feature ASAP.

    Thanks,
    Ziyaad

  7. Sync Mac iCal with OneNote

    I see there is the ability to sync outlook calendar but not iCal. It would be nice for Mac users with no outlook calendar to make notes quickly based off meetings.

  8. Allow Disabling of the automatic shifting of the screen when typing notes

    When typing notes, OneNote will automatically begin shifting the screen with every keystroke I input. It's very distracting when typing notes and creating lists requires me to move my screen back each time.

  9. 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

  11. Enable "tree" type of structure where I can make section to become a page and vice versa

    The number of section keeps growing and eventually becomes overcrowded. There is this concept of a "page" and a "section", but what I would like to be able to do is to make a "page" out of a "section" by just dragging section into another section...or vice versa, to make the section out of a page. So I want to be able to build a tree...

  12. Please bring back the option of hiding the navigation pane.

    I used to have the option to "hide navigation pane" when I was working within a note. After the newest update, I can no longer do that. The navigation pane is constantly present and even when "minimizing" it with the slide bars, it still takes up too much space on the screen.

  13. 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!!!!!!

  15. 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?

  17. Bidirectional linking between pages

    Introduce bi-directional links between pages: If note A links to page B, an entry is added at the bottom of page B that links to page A. Note B thus collects its contexts, and note A becomes part of note B's context.

    This is a fantastic feature introduced by Zettelkasten and Roam Research to use notes not only as memory, but for systematic thinking. It implements the Zettelkasten Method by Nikolas Luhmann (or in a modern take: Smart Notes by Soehnke Ahrens).
    see https://roamresearch.com/ and http://zettelkasten.danielluedecke.de/

  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.

  19. Add a small image editor on it.

    Add a small image editor on it so that we can apply presets and make the image more sharpen, or crop it and etc like it on Power Point.

  20. Search improvements, please!


    1. It'd be nice if the search bar was always present, over our notebooks, so we could still see our notebooks and pages as we search. 2. It'd be nice if the search filtered the notebooks and pages listed in realtime, without having to press enter. 3. If realtime search isn't possible, for especially long notebooks with items in alphabetical order, it'd be nice to have a narrow column of alphabet letters on the side, so we can automatically skip to the letter of entries we're looking for, for instance every entry that starts with G.
