  1. Use mac services to make it really easy to cpature content from anywhere on a mac

    I really want to just highlight text anywhere and clip to OneNote on my Mac, just like I can do in Windows. Ideally with a clever comment saying where the clipping comes from.

    Mac Services are exactly made for that. Please support them, and all other OS integrations (share box) etc.

  2. IMEでの「分節区切り」の位置をわかりやすくして欲しい

    漢字変換をして変換結果が間違っていた際に、分節を変更しようと思っても、未確定の部分が全て青く反転しており、分節の位置がわかりづらいと思います。改善していただけないものでしょうか。

  3. Keep the App open on OneNote for Mac

    Please add the option to keep OneNote for Mac open even after closing all windows. It take too much time for the app to open every time I want to take a simple note or look for info in there.

    OneNote is an app that doesn't need to have a window open all the time, but it also needs to be opened frequently, so the splash screen saying "starting..." gets old really fast.

  7. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  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".

  17. 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.

  20. More advanced editing interface and to be able to print the notes out well.

    The interface is currently different from the old onenote that is on Windows. There is lack of options in editing. Changing to graph or lined paper. Or creating your own tags.

    The printing option is extremely lacklustre. It does not places all the notes in one page. Only half side of the notes gets printed out, resulting in waste of paper. Futhermore, it was really hard to read the notes on the paper.

    Afterall, we might not have our laptop devices with us all the time to read our files on.
