  1. Add a search for note statuses...

    Could you add a search for statuses? For example, I use the TODO for certain reminders. It would be great if I can search for those "To-Do's

  2. Compress title bar and ribbon to a single row

    Just look at how much space is wasted in a title bar http://i.imgur.com/PFj2UfF.png

    4 icons on the right can be easily placed in the same row. Toolbar can be placed there too, especially considering it can have 5 buttons at most.

  3. I have tried for several years to make a suggestion to make OneNote more useful but have kept falling on deaf ears. It would be very useful

    I have tried for several years to make a suggestion to make OneNote more useful but have kept falling on deaf ears.

    It would be very useful if the folders and subfolders could be sorted by alpha in the EDIT section.

    I have hundreds of folders and subfolders on my medical projects.

  4. Side-by-side viewing disappeared

    I used to be able to have OneNote open adjacent to a Word document. In the latest version, that has disappeared -- which means I have to resize the individual windows. Can we bring this feature back?!

  6. Default email reader choice

    On a MAC, when you have an email object dropped into ONENOTE and you click on it to open it, ONENOTE defaults to the dreaded MAC.app as a reader regardless what you have established as your email reader preference. So, simply establish a linkage between the default email reader preference and ONENOTE. That way you don't have to continuously right-click and open-with to avoid spinning up the mail.app on a MAC. It used to work until a recent Office365 upgrade. Very frustrating. These kinds of things gets user to consider their alternatives. I am.

    All Microsoft Office apps (or almost all of them), including Excel, Powerpoint, & Word all have support for touchbar, except OneNote. Please add touchbar support for OneNote!

  9. onedrive not allowed

    At the company I work for OneDrive access isn't allowed anymore. That also means I can't use OneNote on my Mac and iPad.

    Please fix this.

  11. Add a new note whenever you like (read docs, chatting online…) by a short cut

    Just like evernote, users can get a simple note editing window through a short cut, and then they can add a short but important note to a special section(like "Quick Notes")

  13. Seitenumbruch

    Es wäre schön OneNote hätte eine Markierung für einen Seitenumbruch. Wenn ich einzelne Seiten ausdrucken möchte habe ich oftmals das Problem, dass die Seiten "abgeschnitten" werden oder sich merkwürdig auf mehreren Seiten verteilen. Das ist nervig und wenig ressourchenschonend.

  15. Viewing Navigation Panes in OneNote for Mac

    I have been using OneNote for a while now. Honestly, I liked it better when the page and section tabs were at the top of the page, but I managed to make the switch to having them on the left side of my OneNote window. I am not here to complain about that.

    I keep my desktop organized with OneNote running most of the time along side two other programs. In order to see as much information as possible, my OneNote window is sized to fill about 50% of the width of the screen, or 700 or so pixels.

    My…

  16. Please redesign NAME @ Sites - Organization

    When your using the OneDrive app, whether it be the desktop app or the web client, it seems that a default notebook is created in a users OneDrive called NAME @ Sites - Organization, then in grey letters it says 'personal' > emailprefixdomaindomainsuffix. It's clear to the educated Sharepoint user, that you're using the sharepoint site name...but PLEASE use the brand OneDrive. So 1. stop auto naming a notebook with the NAME @ Sites - Organization. Let the user pick the name. 2. Stop exposing hidden Sharepoint names in the UI of OneNote. Please realize the value in…

  17. Quit updating so often

    You send out updates more regularly than any other application on my mac. If the updates are actually important to the security and stability of the program then updates are warranted, otherwise bundle the improvements into sporadic changes.

  18. Email page should attach files, not just embed them

    In the Windows OneNote 2016 version, I can send a page to someone and the files on the page are also sent as attachments. This doesn't happen in any other version and that's a real shame. Can we have the choice please?
