  5. Equations in Dark Mode

    It would be nice to be able to use equations in Dark Mode. As for now, it is white font on a white background, so I cant#t see what I'm typing

  8. Open up multiple saved ink colours // Personalise colours for pens and highlighters

    I use OneNote for my university studies to highlight and annotate slides and am not a huge fan of the bright fluorescent highlighter colours. For this reason, I have selected my own muted pastel colours to draw with as they are less harsh on the page and eyes. It would be very handy if instead of having to reselect these same colours every time I close the application, I propose either: » ability to open many saved customised colours simultaneously; » be able to select/create a colour theme of your choice; or » have the option of choosing and setting…

  9. New stickers

    Would it be possible to add more stickers? The current stickers are not productive. I like the idea of using stickers to draw my attention to an important topic or mark it for follow up with a professor. I find that the "important" or "question" markers on OneNote are just too small if you are inserting powerpoint slides.

  10. Text recognition for powerpoint files

    I often insert powerpoint files into my notes using the 'printout' option and it would be nice if instead of inserting it as an image, it could insert as a pdf with text recognition. That way I don't have to keep scrolling to try and find what I'm looking for.

  11. Do not allow students to edit the name of a distributed page / assignment

    Currently, when a page is distributed to students, they are able to edit the name of the page and this then means the page is not visible when you go to review it in class notebook. This is a serious flaw across all platforms, not just Mac. This is not a simple case of 'locking the page', as that means that students are then unable to edit or complete their work.

    This is a fundamental flaw which needs addressing. The minute a student edits the name of a page, it cannot easily be seen when giving teacher feedback. Similarly, they…

  12. Maybe less autocorrection?

    You are correcting things for no reason and adding extra capitalization.

  15. 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

  17. OneNote for Mac - Fit to Print an A4 Page

    OneNote for Mac - Fit to Print to A4 Page

    A constant daily irritation - needing to re-size EVERY note / and EVERY photo within the note, to page fit / print to A4 page/s.

    Similar with .pdf's - why only a whole note on a single A4 page?

    NEEDED PLEASE:


    • Simple "Fit to page settings"

    • Visible page breaks (like in excel)

    • Auto "shrink to fit" facility

    • Printing as a .pdf - allow page breaks facility

      • not shrink entire note to one A4 page (and
        need a microscope to read it).



    This should be EASY to do with current technology!

  19. Keybindings for Drawing Shapes

    We should have keybindings for the shapes tool and other drawing tools as well. At least let us put them in the titlebar like a browser extension so we don't have to clumsily traverse a menu with our Wacoms.

  20. PDF formating

    It would be quite nice for there to be some sort of marking on the blank page to indicate where, if the page were to be exported as a PDF, it would be cut off, both on the top and bottom, as well as the sides.
