  1. Dark Mode Checkboxes

    Loving Dark Mode OneNote, but checkboxes in To-Do tags are difficult to read now. Ideally, they boxes would be dark as well with a thicker check mark line, but either way the check mark line is super thin and not very readable in dark mode.

  2. I would like the "strike through" to show on the Notebook list tab.

    If I strike through a title, it should show it on the tabbed list.

  3. Add possibility to show date in navigation

    Currently (16.28) it is only possible to show the title and (optional) content of a page in the sidebar. For me it would be very helpful if instead or additional to the content I could show the create date of the page in the list.

    I often have similar titles for my pages and in a long list of entries, I have to open each page or add the date manually to the title, to find the required one.

  6. Provide a menu item for displaying / hiding the nav panes

    Providing a menu item for displaying / hiding the nav panes would allow Mac users to assign a keyboard shortcut to that functionality. Allowing me to navigate faster (hands don't have to leave the keyboard) and focus more (once I've navigated to the right page). AND because it's a menu item, I can set the keyboard shortcut myself through Mac's System Preferences.

  7. Bring back maintaining page position!

    In the latest version 16.27 and 16.28 there is a bug where your last position will not be maintained. So if you change from page A to page B, when you go back to page A you will be at some random position. This bug does not exist on 16.26.

  12. Randomly scrolls to the top of the page

    When reading or scrolling down my one note page, it will suddenly go back up to the top! This is frustrating especially when im reading lecture slides 100+ pages long and I am constantly having to go back down to find the slide i was on!!

  13. Icon and functionality right from Mac Menu Bar

    I think it will be ideal to instead of opening Onenote and letting it sit at the dock, have the option to have it sit in the Mac Menu Bar where one could immediately click on it and choose whatever one wishes to do. In a fast pace work environment, that helps a lot. I would actually leave Evernote if Onenote has that option and not having to open it all the way from Launchpad any time I wish to work in Onenote... and I am constantly working with Onenote. That will be very handy and technically advantageous.

    For me,…

  15. Fix online OneNote Notebook Importer tool for Mac users

    The OneNote Notebook Importer tool (link at: https://support.office.com/en-ie/article/export-and-import-onenote-notebooks-a4b60da5-8f33-464e-b1ba-b95ce540f309) does NOT WORK on an update Mac (OS 10.14.5) and OneNote (16.27). Notebooks can be exported by following the advice on this page, but the exported notebooks cannot be imported (directly) back into a Mac. After much difficulty (MS phone advisers!) and some assistance (some responses to questions on MS Community), I have found that is only possible to import the exported Notebooks on a Windows PC. It doesn't work on a Mac, despite what is said on MS guidance page (link above, which needs to be corrected and currently wrong…

  18. Export/Download Notebooks

    Please allow us to export/download/transfer notebooks to our personal computer or another account. I'm going to lose my notes because we have to switch accounts for storage and I can't transfer my notes.

  19. searching for more than one word is not efficient..

    in case of searching for a phrase...it gives isolated instances of either words alone which is useless...
    for ex- if I search for "abdominal cavity" , instead of giving the exact instance it gives all results for abdomen alone and cavity alone...
