  2. Add screen capture and auto-correct

    The Windows version has two very useful features, built-in button to capture parts of the screen and insert in the notebook, and use the auto correct entries defined in Word. So if I enter "nlsas" and I want it to convert to "NL-SAS", I define it once and I'm done. Both of these are basic features that should be part of the Mac version as well.

    Also, in the Windows version, highlighting text brings up a mini-menu by the cursor with basic options for formatting. This should also be part of Mac version.

  6. I need to be able to save files directly to my laptop.

    I don't always have reliable internet access, like when I'm traveling. There are many areas around the world where good Wi-Fi is hard to find, you need to think about ALL your customers.

  7. Add Full "Save As" support similar to Microsoft OneNote

    Currently OneNote for Mac only allows "Save As" for a single page. Microsoft version allows you to save whole sections and whole notebooks as well. Suggest addition this to Mac version.

  8. Provide a way to import OneNote 2010 .one files without requiring a Windows PC

    I have a whole directory structure of .one files (representing several notebooks) copied from my old Windows PC that I no longer have access to. There is apparently no way to get them into Mac OneNote 2016 without sharing them to OneDrive, which requires access to a PC running Office. A google search shows I'm not the only one who would like a better solution.

  9. open multiple notebooks in one click

    Opening notesbooks currently has to be done one-by-one and thus if you want to open several notesbooks this can become quite tedious. Hence, being able to select and open multiple notebooks in one go would be a great benefit

  10. Ensure deleting a section is recoverable

    My niece has just lost a whole semester of study notes when she inadvertently clicked Delete Section instead of Delete Page. Undo did not work, and the pages were not in the trash either on her Mac or on OneDrive. This is an appalling hole in the OneNote product!!! You must update OneNote so that it is possible to recover a deleted section, at least for a few days. She tried immediately to get the section back, but it could not be recovered.

  14. Share Extensions on a MAC

    Will Share Extensions be added to OneNote for Mac?

    Right now the only way to export a web page from Safari to OneNote is via a web link and that only put it in OneNote as an image so the text cannot be edited.

  16. Priority codes that auto-sort themselves e.g. tags for ABC categories or 123 categories.

    For Action Lists we need to be able to enter simple priority codes that sort themselves i.e. important or urgent ToDo items are tagged "A", medium priorities are tagged "B" and less important items are tagged "C".

  18. A way to stop the auto-listing and auto-numbering AND a way to insert common symbols

    Allow short hand of species names for science classes, don't automatically convert anything with a letter followed by a period to an alphabetical list.

    AND a way to insert common symbols, like the greek alphabet.
