    • It's been a year and you guys still don't have an undo button on the online version. Please put one.

      many people accidentally delete long paragraphs and you guys haven't added the undo button yet when it's very evident that many people are requesting for it. Adding this option on the online version will boost your ratings.

            • Allow the Drawing Tools for the Online version

              My students and I use OneNote, but since we don't have one to one laptops the district won't let them sign onto the desktop version of OneNote. Therefore, my students can access the drawing function on it. Sometimes, I like to take screen shots of a text and be able to write on it, highlight, or add notes to it with the drawing tool functions. Could this be made possible?

                      • Enable insert online video (and other embed material) into Onenote Online

                        16.5.2016 microsoft enabled embedded online materials to be played within Onenote Online.

                        See more: https://onedrive.live.com/?Content%20Examples%20&authkey=!AOdDrcSZSizJ17o

                        However, mere playback is not useful in educational use of Onenote Online. It would be more useful have also a possibility to insert online content (embeddable content) into Onenote Online.

                        Now one needs to grab tablet or run desktop onenote in order to insert content into his/her Onenote pages.

                        • Add ability to open multiple windows (pages) within one note

                          It would be nice if I could use the default "Open in new tab" function in my browser. That way I can have the Library in one tab and have the instructions in an other one.

                          • mathematica formula

                            Word Online can display math formula created using the builtin equation editor, but OneNote online cannot. After this many years MS bought OneNote, it is surprising that OneNote is still not fully integrated into the Office family.

                            • Tags need to sync across all platforms

                              I'm a bit bit surprised that this has to be requested but OneNote has not arrived yet as a true mobile platform. As far as I'm concerned, it pretends to be but it's not. Please add the ability for tags to sync across all platforms. If I create tags on the desktop, they should be available to use on the online version or mobile.

                              • Drawing in OneNote Online

                                My company has recently started using OneNote Online for idea sketching & brain storming. We are using Linux in our development environment and therefore are restricted to OneNote Online. Being able to draw and sketch in the Online App would be most beneficial to our productivity as well as the productivity of other companies in a similar situation.

                                      Hi,

                                      In OneNote Online there is undo.

                                      If you select the “home” menu you see the first part on the ribbon menu is two arrows for “undo”. When there is something to undo you can click on the left arrow, and to “undo the undo” you can click the right one.

                                      From the keyboard can also use Ctrl+Z (Windows) or ⌘+Z (Mac) to undo your last actions.

                                    • Need develop handwirting and freehand drawing functions into OneNote.

                                      As an engineer, I found that some critical functions are missing in One Note. For example, I want to write down some equations with special characteristics in my web app notebook and draw some simple flowcharts. It would be desirable and pretty handy to develop these functions which allow handwriting and drawing in the OneNote content. Thanks,

                                      • Disable Auto-capitalization

                                        On the Web App version, there doesn't seem to be a way to disable auto-caps. When I'm taking notes with code in it, it'll auto cap things like "var =" or "somekey: " in a JSON snippet. I like to make snippets I can copy-paste later, but if I'm entering the code on the Web App version, it mucks it up and I have to go back and uncap about every line. If I have it disabled on the Windows desktop version, why wasn't that designed to carry over as the default? If there's no dialog to change it, at…

                                          We’ve recently added the ability to choose whether or not you want to auto-capitalize words. To disable auto-capitalization, go to Home>Spelling and select AutoCorrect Options. In the AutoCorrect Options pop-up, de-select the “Capitalize first letter of sentences” box. Re-select the box to re-enable auto-capitalization.
