    • 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.

                  • 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.

                    • 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.

                      • Crop Images

                        After uploading an image, I'd love to be able to crop it quickly in OneNote. Sometimes I have a screenshot that I upload and want to remove the browser bar, or other remainders of the screen. Now I need to process the image first and use other tools before I can upload it.

                          Hi,

                          No longer do you need to edit your images before adding them to OneNote!

                          To crop, right click the image and click Image Crop. Drag the handles to set the final image, then click Crop.

                          Let us know if you find problems.

                          Best Regards,
                          OneNote Online Team

                            • Add support to add documents (*xls, pdf ..) (like in desktop version)

                              It would be great to drag and drop documents like Excel Sheets into my OneNote Online. This is because I really like to organize my Meeting Protocols with OneNote but the protocols need to be native *xls and OneNote is not installed on all Meeting Laptops so I have to use the online Version.

                              • 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,

                                • 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.

                                      • OnoNote needs ability to delete an old Notebook!!...ASAP!

                                        Deleting an old unused Notebook seems to be an obvious and easy update!

                                          I am a student and I like to take notes with my peers in class. We currently use Microsoft word because of its real time collaboration in taking notes, but being able to do this in OneNote with its organizational powers would be just absolutely incredible and offers a significant advantage over Evernote
