  1. Being able to search for unchecked checkboxes in notebooks

    On the desktop app, searching for to-do checkboxes (unchecked or checked) works beautifully. Can you please add as a search feature on mobile? would be great!

    • missing features

      So I was using the Onenote app (the new one that was suggested from the Microsoft Website) and realized that several features were missing from the ribbon, such as creat to do list, page templates, etc. Please can this be fixed. Thanks!

      • Link/Integrate Microsoft to do

        If you could sync your to dos in Onenote with To Do app - wow. So for example, if you finish a task in To Do, it should reflect in Onenote. Perhaps the to do lists can be pages or lists in Onenote. Also, To Do should sync with outlook.

        • OneNote iOS - Swipe navigation to next or previous page

          In OneNote for iOS, when viewing a page, allow swiping left or right to navigate between pages. As a safety feature, allow swipe navigation only from the bottom of the screen. Currently, I have to tap in the upper left to exit the page then select the next page.

          • Border color

            Please let us change the default border and app icon color. I really hate purple. If you can’t do that, at least tone the colors down. The current purple is hideous.

            • New option for SECTION settings

              Develop a new option for SECTIONS settings. Allow grateful users to set a default page title naming convention. For example:

              • DIARY MODE: New Page titles based on date
              • NUMBER MODE: New Page titles are incremental
              • DEFAULT: New Page titles based on first line of page text.

              • PDF size

                It would be great if OneNote would allow us to Save As a reduced file size PDF. Currently, even one page of handwritten text creates a massive file.

                  Make the renaming and delete functions much more obvious and intuitive. Upon opening a new notebook, it is not easy to rename notebook 1 into something meaningful or better...delete comments t.

                      • Ability to check the sections which are in a section group of the students private space using review student work.

                        I review student working iPad version of OneNote. I have arranged my class notebook so that there are sections within subsection groups. This enables students to access pages under various topic names. When I use review student work it shows only sections not the sections inside section groups. but when I use the OneNote 2016 version there is no issue.

                        • Mind map functionality in OneNote

                          Mind maps are great for note taking and structuring ideas. Having this ability in OneNote would make OneNote THE place to take notes be that in text paragraphs, picture, annotations or mind maps!

                          • Paper Size Options

                            I do the majority of my note taking on my iPad Pro with the apple pencil. I like handwriting. But I have an android phone and pc. I want to use onenote as a note taking app because it can be run on all three of those platforms.. But I want to have the option to choose a standard 8.5 x 11 page format on the iPad, not the infinity layout that's there. It feels like the lack of that option is holding me back from really using onenote. The infinity layout doesn't look slick enough for just simple handwritten…

                              Have a view only option, so that when reading from ipad, you won't accidently touch the screen and the textbox pops up.

                                OneNote on the iPad Pro has intermittent syncing issue. Constantly asking me to sign in. Very frustrating. This is a relatively new problem.

                                    • Apple Watch app should capture audio and link to note

                                      When dictating a note via the Apple Watch app, it should capture the audio and link it to the note (like the old Windows Phone 8 app used to)! This will help to alleviate issues when speech-to-text is unreliable.

                                        These are already present on the PPT app. Please just port it into OneNote. Maybe even the protractor. Please! And also add pressure sensitivity to OneNote iOS!

                                        How in the world are these two basic features absent!?

                                        • 书写优化(橡皮/误触/缩进)

                                          1 橡皮擦卡顿。2 用pencil不支持防误触,书写很影响,既然出了书写就应该做好啊。 3希望能出一个书写的缩紧线,以便书写时候的对齐
