  1. 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!!!!!!!

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  5. ノートブックの作成時の日本語入力確定時に勝手に作成されてしまう

    ノートブックを新規作成したときの日本語入力で確定した時点で勝手に作成されてしまいます。入力中なのか確定したのかの区別がつきません。「作成」ボタンをクリックしてはじめてノートブックを作成したいのにできません。

  7. Mac: Lag when audio file added

    There is noticeable lag when typing with an audio file added. When the file is played and then paused it goes away, which makes me think it should be a simple fix. Just wanted to make you guys aware of this minor issue.

  8. Shift note-saving from "notebook/cabinet" format to allow a single document to be accessed through multiple folders

    I am looking for a note-saving platform that will allow me to better organise and access my notes.

    I am a medical resident and my studies have distinct but overlapping information, which means that I often have the same information saved in multiple places.

    For example - I divide my notes by medical speciality and my notes on "Meningitis" would appear under my "Emergency Medicine" folder, as well as my "Infectious Disease" folder. The problem is that if I make any updates to my "Meningitis" notes then I end up with multiple different versions of the same topic saved in…

  10. improve the copy-paste qualities for wikipedia please. (mac)

    At the moment the copy-paste from wikipedia is horrible. The one note clipper makes the clip un-editable and if you copy-paste from the article the layout is a mess. I have to manually drag each alinea in the right position. I really love onenote, but this part has frustrated me since long

  12. 太字が反映されるようにしてほしい

    私の環境だけの症状かもしれませんが、太字にしても見た目が変わりません。
    Windowsで使用していた時はちゃんと表示されていたので、とても不便を感じています。

  14. User customer service?? Does this exist? Can't open previous version files

    Hi - man what a disaster it is trying to find contact information for help with Onenote!! I have old files and I wanted to see how to go about opening them, which led me to seeing Onenote was free now - so I download it on my iMac and it won't open! The files end in ".one" and I believe they are from 2008 or so. Someone Please help!

  16. turn off automatic math due to equal sign

    There should be an option to turn off the automatic mathematical operations that follow an equal sign. For example, when using OneNote to do ANYTHING besides math, 0-1 does not mean zero minus one, but rather zero to one. Thus, adding an = after that should not produce a -1 that has to be deleted in order to continue taking notes about the interval from zero to 1.

  20. Cocoa app isn't a 'first class Mac citizen'

    Cocoa apps don't have access to Mac services, Auto-correct and many other features. Could the next versions be full blown Mac apps using whatever framework/apis that give all the features?
