  5. Allow more and custom colours options for 'text highlight colour' and auto straighten the highlighter

    I am a bit OCD and I got Dyslexia in highlighting the text. I enjoy using the 'text highlight colour' button in the home column to colour code the text more than the highlighter options in the draw column. As the highlighter doesn't allow me to highlight text with a straight line.

  7. Let us be able to edit our default text

    Create an easy to find setting where we can edit our default text. With things like colours, size and font. Maybe even multiple presets

    Unlimited or greater storage of the application cloud. Because I use it for college and would like to be able to annotate the lessons with photos of the slides, larger storage options would be nice.

  11. ONE NOTE NEEDS A MAC BACK UP SOLUTION

    Currently (may 2020) there are no prompts for backing up One note on a Mac... and all the web "help" that shows exports back up etc for Onenote/ Mac seem to have been only functional on previous versions of OneNote . It would be ideal to have to have the desktop version on Onenote be able to export a back up locally - and avoid the confusing and slow web interface -thank you :)

  12. Allow OneNote to detect language automatically.

    Allow OneNote to detect language automatically because it's very annoying having to change this by yourself, and it doesn't really work well, sometimes it doesn't change the configuration even though you change it. For people like me who writes in different languages, it'd be awesome.

  14. 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

  15. When something is formatted as 'code' turn off the spell checker

    When something is formatted as 'code' turn off the spell checker. Variable names and classes rarely match with a dictionary.

  16. Paper size option!

    Would make it a lot more easier to export the notes as pdfs without having to go back edit them again to a different with after already exporting them.

  17. Get Syncing working

    My OneNote spends about 70% of the time unable to sync. Sometimes exiting OneNote and re-running it gets it going but "encouraging" syncing is now taking significant time.

    When syncing is failing, OneDrive, Excel, Work, etc. all work fine. It's just OneNote syncing that's failing.

    I'm now at the point of switching to a system that works as sync'ing is a pretty important feature of the system.

  19. Customize Tabs and Tab Shortcuts

    Also the "Tabs" symbols are helpful, they are extremely limited and automatically have shortcuts for only a few of them. I suggest the ability to create custom tabs and/or to at least be able to change which "Tags" have a shortcut key so we can easily use the ones we use most often.
