  1. 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.

  2. 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

  3. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. [manage images in the page] image

    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 !

  10. 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.

  11. bookmark

    firstly I am here is because I like onenote very much as now I use it every day, I put all my thing in onenote, so!

    I have a suggestion, the onenote can have a bookmark button, when select a row and click bookmar, it will create a bookmar within the page, so there will be a tree navigation panel to let you navigate the page with a bookmark click, it will really helpful when you made a large page.

    also, we can create link based on bookmark, so when I write a text and click link, it will link…

  12. special characters

    I use onenote as a technical notebook for code and other ideas.
    I noticed onenote adds special characters to some of my code which effectively destroys it.
    Can we have a text only mode, or a way to strip special characters from text

  13. Make OneNote open faster!

    Make OneNote open quicker by opening part of it in the background. And make it stay open, so it doesn't need to boot up again each time you use it!

  15. All desktop platforms, including OneNote Online: Open note in new window

    My productivity in OneNote would be improved if I could easily break notes out into new windows, so they could be referenced when creating new notes.

  17. FIX it!!!! I can't insert pictures through any methodology!

    I've tried every trouble shooting idea I can think of, but I still can't insert pictures into OneNote for Mac. I've tried uninstalling, reinstalling, signing out and back in, totally starting over under a new user account within Yosemite (actually got that to work once, but once I finished migrating my old user, it proceeded to crash. Support was able to get me back up and running, but ran into same problem with pictures again). This is totally unusable for the way I work and use OneNote. PLEASE FIX IT!!!!!!!

  18. Mac Version: Add a purple colored status bar at the bottom of the App like the other 2016 versions have. Consistency.

    The 2016 apps have a colored status bar, blue for word, green for excel, etc. When you have a lot of windows open you can quickly identify them by glancing at the bottom of the app. Since all the new 2016 apps have them, you need to put one at the bottom of OneNote so they are all consistent.

  19. In Onenote you can tag "Book to read". How about being able to connect Onenote to services like Goodreads?

    So when you write down a book title in your notes, you can mark it with the tag, and kablam it's in your Goodreads "Want to read" list.
