  5. Support Full Screen for embedded online videos

    I have only tried Youtube and Stream videos, but as of right now (OneNote Desktop Build 2006) videos cannot switch to Full-Screen, which pretty much makes the functionality useless to me.

    It would be great if one could enable full-screen, because some educational content cannot be properly seen in a small preview, while requiring users to leave OneNote towards the browser kind of defeats the original purpose of embedding those videos.

    This functionality should not be exclusive to the web, but also work on the Desktop, which is why I've posted an identical item over there. Please vote on both…

  6. Already created links are disabled when a OneNote section is moved

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    OneNote セクションを移動した際、あらかじめ生成していたリンク URL が無効になってしまう
    Already created links are disabled when a OneNote section is moved


    ■Description(内容):
    OneNote ノートブック内のセクションへのリンク URL を生成後に対象セクションを移動した場合、URL がリンク動作をしなくなってしまう。
    都度リンクを再生成するのは煩わしいため、URL の遷移先セクションを追従して動作するよう、機能の拡充を希望する

    If you move a section within a OneNote notebook after having created a link URL that points to it, that link will no longer function.
    Having to create these links again every time is not ideal, so please make the destination section of these links update when they are moved.

  7. Make an Elementary version of OneNote for K-5 students called, OneNote Jr!

    OneNote is such a great tool but can be overwhelming for younger students. For example, automatic ruled background. Create a study-group for K-5 teachers. Also, an easy log in for NYC DOE students. A lot of issues with using the APP on the iPad and the web version worked but it I had to troubleshoot for it to allow students to edit. I am not happy to go back to Google Classroom. I have dedicated hours to learning how to use it with my students. Thank You in Advance

  8. PWAs dos apps do Office

    PWAs dos apps do Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint)

    Uma sugestão: Os apps do office online (office.com) poderiam se instalar sozinhos como PWA. Por exemplo: Word Online seria PWA do office.com/launch/word?ui, PowerPoint seria do office.com/launch/powerpoint?ui e assim com o Excel.

    Também poderiam dar repaginada naquela aba arquivo do Office Online. pois tem um visual feio e antigo, na minha opinião está fora dos padrões do fluent design.

    Assim o Office ficaria bem melhor.

    Porque ainda deixam aquele visual de win8/office 2016 em alguns produtos do Office como Sway e OneNote?

  9. Open notebooks in same tab

    When I try to switch to other notebooks in one note web app, it automatically opens it in a new tab, instead of switch right there. This would be a highly satisfying feature.

  11. "to OneNote" automated OCR Scanning and Indexing

    New documents, Folders, Notebooks contents are OCR Scanned and Indexed automatically for searching. API for web enabled scanners to send to my OneNote "Scan" date stamped notebook folder. Print to OneNote, Outlook to OneNote, and Paste to OneNote.

    When I send documents, pictures, files, etc. in OneNote, I can reliably find using search or manually by date & time. If OCR needs to be done on my PC do it automatically in background like OneDrive file management.

  13. Send Outlook emails directly from OneNote

    It would be great if I could keep all of my contacts for a specific project on ONE page (instead of creating a separate page for each contact I "send" to OneNote), and then generate an Outlook email directly from OneNote that would go to either the entire team (all of the contacts in that project) or only those project contacts that I select.

  15. Fixing Copy & Paste from OneNote Online to External

    There seems to be an issue where if you copy text from OneNote Online, and paste it to an external source, for example into Notepad, Emails, etc.. any blank line will turn into 3 blank lines.

    Example (Text in OneNote Onlie):

    Hello, how are you?
    .
    My name is Liam.

    If you paste the above anywhere, it will paste as:
    Hello, how are you?
    .
    .
    .
    My name is Liam.

    (Ignore the full stops, it's to keep the blank spaces in the thread)

    Which is not keeping its true formatting, very frustrating.

  17. Formatting across applications

    I should be able to copy & paste from OneNote online to PowerPoint, Excel, Word, and Outlook online without formatting troubles and issues. OneNote online formatting capabilities are less than desirable. This is for text formatting and table formats.

  18. Allow bolding of sections and pages

    We use OneNote online as manuals and user guides. It would be helpful if we could have the feature to bold pages when there are subpages to draw user attention to the bolded parent page. It would be easier to digest the information this way. Thank you!

  19. Integrate To Do tags with Microsoft To Do

    Hi

    I'd love to see better cross-app support throughout the MS world, but particularly I'd like to be able to integrate OneNote To Do tags with Microsoft To Do.

    When I insert a To Do tag in OneNote, why not have that line, with a link to the page, created as a task in Microsoft To Do? Perhaps with it's own category of OneNote, in the same way that Flagged Emails have their own category.
