  5. Collapsing the notes selection column on Mac

    Can we collapse or hide the notes selection column on Mac OneNote (experimental features layout)? It is so annoying now coz it occupies nearly half of the screen space

  6. Add a way to change the langue for the entire notebook

    I personally write my notes in English (although I am natively Danish). But because I every time I make a new text box I have to set the language for English. (primarily to get the autocorrect and get rid of the red lines) It is sadly time consuming and very frustrating that such a simple thing have yet to be implemented (especially since to program is so well in so many other areas)

    This is actually one of the primary reasons I am considering moving to Evernote even though I like the layout of OneNote more

  8. OneNote feature list per plattform (iPad/iPhone/PC/Suface/Mac ..)

    I find it confusing figuring out which OneNote faeture/functionality does / does not work on which plattform. Could Microsoft please publish a feature comparison list, maybe per Plattform and version?

  9. Copy/Paste Handwriting to another App (email, Word, PPT, etc)? Feature Request

    Seems like this would be an obvious feature/function, but sadly, it doesn't seem to work, even within Microsoft apps in IOS.

  11. Ability to save multiple Modifiable Quick Access Toolbar with Modifiable Shortcut Trees.

    Ability to save multiple Modifiable Quick Access Toolbar with Modifiable Shortcut Trees.

    Depending on the kind of notes I am taking, I use different Quick Access Toolbars. Having a drop down menu at the beginning of the QAT with the various QATs would be efficient.

    Programmable short cut keys would come in handy when various functions are used in various function families.

    [Ctrl]+[Alt]+[Q] would make the QAT active. Next key press would activate a corresponding button on the QAT, or open the sub QAT tree associated with that button.

    For example:
    [Ctrl]+[Alt]+[Q] - opens QAT, displaying groups with short cut…

  12. Hi!

    We are wondering about the square when you make an audio record on the iPad. Can you make it smaller and moveable or just have it at the top by the rest of the tools and preferably with a pause button?

    It is very tricky to record a text on the screen when you have the square in the way.

    Thank you!

  15. Side-by-side mode on Mac

    Regarding recent update - I love the new appearance of tabs / sections! One issue for me though is that if I try to use OneNote in side-by-side mode on my Macbook, the tabs on the left side really get in the way & minimize the space I can see to take notes. It would be great if we could collapse all tabs / sections on the left for this purpose.

  16. Multiple entry clipboard

    This helps a lot if someone wants to write complicated equations, because one can combine different entries to write new equation, or graphs, or figures.

  17. Create a lite version to decrease app size

    The current app size is 261mb!

    I want to see a 'lite' version of the app win stripped down feature sets. I mostly use th app as a simple note app with syncing between devices

    On an 8gb device Onenote uses a disproportional amount of space.

  20. Add ability to drop a text box anywhere (even on PDFs)

    I'm not seeing it immediately as I search through here, so I apologize if this has been mentioned. (Also, I want to emphasize that this is different from being able to select items like PDFs, images, etc, and move them; I know that was already added, and I'm stoked about that :-D)

    I'd like to be able to add a text box easily; right now when I have a PDF in a notebook, I have to scroll all the way to either the top or bottom (to a blank space), tap, add my text box, then move it to wherever…
