  2. Tables - don't capitalise first letter of each new line within a cell

    If I go into OneNote>Preferences>Spelling and AutoCorrect and I uncheck "Capitalize the first letter of sentences" and then restart OneNote, this preference change is successfully applied to my OneNote when I am typing in a OneNote Page -- but if I insert a table into my OneNote page, and begin typing lines within a cell, this preference is not applied.

    The preference change I make is a functional/style change and it should just apply across the board. If, for example, I am entering a list of items within a cell, and I want each new list item to be on…

  3. Urgent! Hotkey for changing font size

    You should create a hotkey to change font size in OneNote for Mac. Like Command+Shift+> to increase font by 1 point and Command+Shift+< to decrease font by 1 point.

  4. Please add the buttons to zoom in and out the text quickly as in Word!!

    I can't believe that in 2019 you still can't enlarge and reduce the text as quickly as in Word, without having to click on the number every time or even to write it....

    it seems like Microsoft doesn't even listen to our needs or advice

  7. Instant search results

    Would like to see search results updated as soon as I start typing searches, much like the older desktop OneNote version. I find typing the search then pressing Enter to be an outdated UI model.

  8. 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!!

    For navigating large pages Press a key to be able to ZOOM IN or OUT from the location of mouse pointer using the SCROLL WHEEL.

  10. Allow OneNote to sync with Google Drive

    Please consider allowing OneNote to sync with Google Drive so that companies and individuals can still use this fantastic tool without the OneDrive requirement.

  11. Keyboard shortcut for "lasso select" and "insert space".

    These are useful for pen display users (such as Wacom Cintiq 16) to quickly select items and insert space without pausing to click on the UI bar.

  12. Export annotations only

    Just trying OneNote for the first time. I'm annotating a long PDF document. I want a way to export my annotations, in other words all the notes I made about the PDF document, ON THEIR OWN, without the document itself. As a writer and a researcher, I need a way to condense the info contained in long PDF documents into quick reference 'lists' of notes. Hope that makes sense.

  13. Allow shortcut to symbols (--> leading to →) etc.

    Vote for this if you'd like keyboard shortcuts available in Word to also be available in OneNote.

  14. Table Tools for OneNote on MAC

    The Table Tools tool doesn't exist for OneNote on MAC.
    Also is it possible to add border and colors to segments in a page?

    this helps segregate sections inside a page.

  15. Ability to link notes via x-callback-URL

    Ability to link notes via x-callback-URL

    OneNote is supposed to play nicely with Word. The Mac version doesn't – there is no facility to link notes to a specific Word doc.

    Linking within and beyond MS apps couldbe made much easier by adopting the x-callback-URL protocol already widely used in more than 50 other applications. This provides swift, robust, non-internet-dependent links between apps on the same device.

    At present OneNote provides a link to a specific para that can be copied and pasted in Word, and it works well -- to get from a Word doc to a place in…

  16. Multiple links to different sections in OneNote within 1 image

    Links to direct you to different parts of texts within the same image. I.e. As part of a pathway, if you click a component, it will redirect you to the linked text.

    Perhaps if you could assign different link addresses to (as many parts) of an image as you want, that would ideal.

  17. There should be "binders" that you are able to organize specific notebooks in.

    This would allow for a more organized feel and an area to keep notebooks for different years/semesters.

  18. OneNote Design

    Please go back to the former design of OneNote with the tabs on top versus the left side view. The left side view takes away too much space for the overall notes. There have been many complaints on this site and on Apple's site as a preference for Mac users that use OneNote.

  19. Be able to turn off automatic synchronisation on mac

    Because of the new rules in Denmark regarding exams, OneNote is useless, unless I can get it to not synchronize with my OneDrive. If OneNote synchronizes with my OneDrive, it's considered cheating during the exams. The only way I can do this is to turn off wifi, but this makes it impossible to use an online dictionary for me. We are a lot of students in Denmark suffering from this problem because we aren't able to use our notes.
