    • I would like to see OneNote integrate with the built in voice in Yosemite. This way I could make written notes verbally while reading.

      Yosemite comes with this built in dictation feature. Unfortunately it does not work in OneNote. It would be nice to be able to use that feature built into the operating system to dictate text notes while viewing a webpage or perhaps reading a book. It is a pain to dictate to a document then have to cut and paste to get the text into OneNote.

        • OneNote for Mac and Office 365 ProPlus subscribers = Broken

          Customers with an Office 365 ProPlus only subscription (and no access to OneDrive for Business) who try to activate OneNote end up without being able to create a new notebook since the program does not support creating books offline or in SharePoint on-premise or in OneDrive for Business on-premise or iCloud or Dropbox or even just locally on the computer.
          These users then get forced to register a Microsoft account to get up an running and even that is not intuitive (clicking your name and adding service)...

          • Preview search results

            Preview search results when you type into the search bar, like it works on windows. Right now I have to examine each individual page to see if I've found what I'm looking for

            • Mac: Open a hyperlink .pdf file to a certain specific page rather than just the file itself

              With the massive amounts of pdf files i regularly refer to at my work, I would like to request a feature where I am able to click on a hyperlink in my onenote that will open to a specific page in a pdf file located in my computer.

              my work involves tons of research and sometimes a single pdf file can have as many as 200+ pages.

              • Allow me to put a file link via Finder or file browse -- not have to manually cut-and-paste

                I keep my files on Google Drive (for work) or Microsoft One Drive (personal), not local on all my individual devices. So I want to have URL LINKS to my referenced documents, NOT the actual attachment. To do that today, I need to manually cut-and-paste the URL (which doesn't work for Google Drive) rather than just browse through a regular file navigation function. Seems pretty basic. Would be even better if you could drag-and-drop the link.

                • 맥용 OneNote에도 윈도우즈용처럼 꼭!!! tag search기능을 넣어주세요. 에버노트에 비해서 가장 강력한 기능이라고 생각합니다.

                  맥용 원노트에는 윈도우용에 있는 tag search가 없습니다. (Todo)등.. 꼭 넣어주세요~

                  • Provide the ability to upload PC Onenote files directly to the Mac version

                    Provide the ability to be able to upload PC OneNote files to OneNote for Mac directly from an iMac.
                    ie assume that you wish to use a library of OneNote files that you created on a PC on an iMac, but you no longer have access to a PC.

                      • onenote's problem

                        Hello, Microsoft office onenote for MAC is a good product, but it has a small problem and this little problem is greatly reduced the use of my feelings. Whenever I close or quit onenote,onenote will no response (onenote interface can be normally closed but no response in the dock), it is impossible if you want to open it again, unless I'm forced to exit the onenote can open again, this let me use it becomes very troublesome, hope you can correct it as soon as possible.

                        • Make deleting and moving sections faster

                          At the moment moving or deleting sections takes ages, it's as if it's literally moving a folder to a new location on my hard disk. Surely it must be possible to update some metadata and do it faster

                          • Add ability to move pages between notebooks on the Mac version

                            Since web clippings accumulate in a section in one notebook, it seems essential that users be able to move them to the proper notebook afterwards. At present, this is not possible on the Mac.

                              • Would be awesome if taking notes chould be even more free of borders.

                                Easy hand(pad)-drawing of graphs with free boundaries.
                                Also possibility of drawing arrows (or inseritng) and easily connecting text boxes or images.

                                Better utilities for scientific or economic study notes in general.

                                • Mac客户端希望能够自定义快捷键

                                  onenote的快捷键很多还是windows上的习惯,和mac是有冲突的.
                                  比如我习惯用ctrl + fbnp 来进行光标上下左右的移动,在别的软件里都能做到,但是在onenote里不行,这给我带来很大的困扰.

                                    Gestion des images dans la page : est-il possible d'intégrer une gestion des images plus proche de celle de Word par exemple ?
                                    Pouvoir rogner, traitement de l'image par rapport au texte (devant, derrière, dans le texte,...). L'intérêt de OneNote est que l'on peut prendre ses notes mais aussi préparer son rapport. Le traitement des images est aujourd'hui minimaliste. Merci !

                                        • Share "widget" on Mac should include the URL of the web page as part of the text note

                                          When I "share" a web page include the URL as text so it shows up in the notebook page.
