  1. You tried. You failed. It happens. Now bring back Notebook in Word.

    The Notebook template in Word 2011, with it's ruled lines mimicking an actual notebook, was far more user friendly than OneNote. You could write out a to-do list with check boxes next to them and then drag them up and down the lines to whatever order of priority you wanted. Why would you eliminate that? I get that you want to give your younger engineers' ideas a chance, but not every swing will produce a hit. You're doubling down on a strikeout here. Forget OneNote and bring back Word Notebook.

  3. Can OneNote Mac have the features that show and manage contents by page by page. GoodNotes displays and prints page by page

    OneNote cannot display or print page by page such as 8.5" x 11" or legal. GoodNotes allows display and print page by page or showing distinction between pages. Convert 3-pager OneNote to PDF it turned into 12 to 16 pages and many blank pages and no distinction between pages or display likewise. If not with GoodNotes, OneNote Win or Mac still suffers from no page/page display or printing.

  4. Tick Marks on To Do

    The tick mark on the To Do box is now quite feint on the latest updates. I find it difficult to see at a glance if the To Do is completed. Perhaps user control of the tick mark weight and colour would be useful

  6. Search notes by date, Custom titles

    It would be great to allow for the date of the note creation to be displayed in the note title. Also, searching, organizing, and filtering by date

  7. Scratch projects can be embedded within OneNote, like Repl.it projects

    As a Computer Science teacher, this would be amazing of this was implemented! Scratch projects embedded in webpages looks very impressive and would look even better in OneNote Class Notebook.

  9. Remove need to log in

    I have nothing but difficulty trying to log in to this app. I know my password, enter it, comes back as wrong. Even thought it isn't.

    So, remove the need to log in and let people that own a subscription to the software actually use the software they are paying for.

    I don't need to save files in the cloud. Letting it work on my desktop is fine.

  12. Shading table bug and highlighting with mouse need to fix!

    I do not know whether this is a bug or not, but when I highlight my cells in my table it highlights with a color other than my chosen colour to highlight text. i.e. my highlight colour is blue but the cells highlight yellow.
    In addition to this, the shading table function doesn't work! I try to change the color of my table and it doesn't change and remains white.

  13. Save as PDF - PDF version standard

    Export/Save as PDF should use the same PDF version standard across all Microsoft products for example version 1.7 regardless if using Mac, Windows, iOS, Android, or Microsoft Online and regardless of using the option use Microsoft online service to generate the PDF or using the local service.
    This consistency is critical to having a consistent and supported cross platform user experience with PDFs being used or printed which were created by Microsoft products.

  14. Better hierarchical organization of content: Add Subsections

    We currently can create sections and pages within sections, but I often find myself wishing for subsections within sections. My workaround is to create section groups, but this does not provide the hierarchical relationships that I would find most useful. I would prefer to have sections be treated as "folders" for nesting of information. Example would be:
    Section - Industry
    --> Subsection - Financial Services
    ---> Sub-subsection - Customers
    ------>Page - Customer A
    ------>Page - Customer B
    --> Subsection - Transportation
    ---->Sub-subsection - Customers
    ------>Customer C
    ------>Customer D

  18. Please use the navigation pane from version 16.22 and before

    In the latest Version 16.23 - when you click on the typing screen, the tabs remain but the grey bar with a search button and icon with "books" remains....I far preferred the old way which had a better layout of the notebook tabs and when you started typing the tabs would go. The grey bar is pointless and irritating since it is permanently there, takes up space (yes it matters when you are on a split screen a lot of the time!)....the previous interface was really great and this version has gone back a step. Please please please take my…

  20. Enable shortcuts for format copy / paste

    CMD+SHIFT+C / CMD+SHIFT+V
    I use this more than any other shortcut when working across office apps. It works great in PowerPoint and Outlook for mac, but not for OneNote. I like to keep my notes tidy s that others can easily parse them as well and solid formating is the key to that.
