  1. Search function

    You cannot search within downloaded PDFs on OneNote which is extremely inconvenient.

  3. ability to import a powerpoint as text rather than PDF so you can copy text, search for words etc more easily

    so you can search for words more easily, highlight text on the powerpoint, and use look up features.

    Its very frustrating that it isn't an option.

  5. Voice Control

    Starting with macOS Catalina, Apple removed Enhanced Dictation, directing users to macOS Voice Control. Unfortunately, Voice Control for dictation does not work with OneNote for Mac, making this an accessibility bug.

  10. keyboard shortcut for Screen Clipping

    Would like the ability to initiate a screen clipping with an assignable keyboard shortcut, instead of having to click the icons for Inset » Files » Screenshot » Screen Clipping. In the heat of the moment, the keyboard shortcut would be very helpful to ensure the right thing is captured before it disappears from the screen.

  11. Colorful Default Bullet Lists option

    Create a default bullet list that changes color depending on the hierarchy level. It would make lists and studying a bit more festive.

  13. Link To Do List App to One Note

    There should be an insert function to insert ToDoList App lists into one note. Or a function in One Note to be able to build to do lists easily, wit due dates, etc., but using Apple Pencil, just as you would build to do lists in a notebook

  14. 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 :)

  15. Equation tool.

    The equation tool is lacking on the Mac version. On the windows version you can write with a pen your work and it will convert it into the write text quickly, Also the subscript and superscript don't work whilst in equation mode which is causes me to spend a lot of time writing down on paper then retyping on the Mac later.

  16. fix the Command key key binds

    it would be a lot better if the command keybinds were simplified, for example the superscript, subscript, cmd+backspace, and others do not work. along with that Onenote often fails to recognise keybinds, even the ones shown by the top menu

  17. Ability to Record Video and Insert Image from Web

    Insert Image from Web feature - using Bing, such as with Forms or PowerPoint

    Also, as a math teacher it would be so helpful to be able to record video directly into OneNote that shows my face and records my instruction as I'm drawing the lesson.

  20. Simple back and forward navigation history like in web browsers

    I use multiple notebooks and sections constantly and it can be tedious trying to get back to a recently used note in an entirely different section or even notebook. If OneNote had Back and Forward buttons like a web browser, navigating between your most recently visited pages, it would be a great help.
