  1. paper size

    I think paper size on note taking it's very important, and to be honest I don't understand why Microsoft get rid of it. Be able to have paper size guidelines when taking note instead of just when you printing is awesome, cause you can control your hand writing to be on exact size and not across the border ( yeah, hand writing instead of typing)

  2. Insert multiple A4 pages in one section / paper size options to limit the canvas

    I would like to use OneNote as a virtual A4 notebook. The unlimited canvas can be a great idea in certain scenarios, but page limitations help with taking structured notes that can work on most screen sizes and can be printed on paper.

    Currently OneNote 2016 only allows you to insert one page of a certain size (see 'Page Templates 'in the 'Insert' menu), and not multiple pages.

    Notability and GoodNotes, the two most popular apps in the Apple App Store, allow you to take notes on A4 pages, which are automatically created as you take your notes and you…

  3. FIND & REPLACE Please!!!

    WE NEED FIND & REPLACE.
    It makes no sense that OneNote doesn't have that feature. Even Notepad has that function! C'mon!

    There should be THREE ways to do FIND & REPLACE in OneNote:
    1) For the current tab
    2) For the current page
    3) For the current notebook

  5. Integration with Microsoft To Do lists

    Should be able to insrt To-do lists into One note pages. You should be able to insert existing To Do lists (with tasks, sub tasks, due dates, notes and other things) as a block so you can see the whole thing as part of a note in a page. Whatever you do in the note block gets updated in To-do and vice versa.

    Would be even better if you can create a To Do list in a One Note page, and that list would be created in To Do as well automatically.

    This would be a really useful feature to…

  6. Multiple spoofing languages active at the same time.

    I'm bilingual and write in multiple languages on one page. It's tremendously annoying that I cannot have two (or more) spoofing languages active at the same time. It's very bothersome to manually adjust the spoofing language for every piece of text that I write.

    This issue was already raised four (!) years ago, with people STILL commenting on it, and although marked as solved, it's not solved at all. Please add this functionality to OneNote!

  7. Will it ever be possible to fill a shape with color on OneNote

    Hello,

    Will it ever be possible to fill a shape with color on OneNote, similar to Microsoft Word and PowerPoint? Does anyone with any power in Microsoft read these questions?

    I feel like a clown going back and forth copying colored rectangles from Word to OneNote, just so I can make an effective diagram. Perhaps OneNote developers would like me to print out a red filled circle from Word and tape it to my nose while I try to fill a shape in OneNote?

    Thanks for nothing.

    -Peter

  10. heading styles

    The default heading styles are just not acceptable. In fact the entire default typography is poor. Please provide the ability to edit headig styles and line spacing at a global level.

  11. Set a paper size

    I'd really like to be a able to choose a certain paper size.
    That would help with printing out documents that were written in OneNote.

  12. more subpages and collapsible

    My OneNote version is 16.0.12914.20000. I suggest that OneNote can expore that the depth of subpage and make each level of subpage can be collapsed. The situation right now is that only depth in 3 of subpages can be created and only root page can be collapsed.

  13. Paper sizes

    I would like to see the implementation of an option for printer paper sized pages in OneNote so printing out homework is easier. Either that or allow the document to be imported as its own note and written on in One note so it can print in the maximum size.

  14. layout

    Get Tab separated horizontal layout back
    in the ole versions of one note the was so much promotion on the benefits of the tab separated layout as this was really great. It´s so confiusing that especially this feature is not existing anymore in the newer version. The menu on the left hand side takes too much space and makes the APP unusable for me.

    Hello,

    reMarkable (see https://remarkable.com/) is gaining in popularity and provides an amazing writing experience in a tablet setting. Could Microsoft work with reMarkable to provide integration support between their device and Microsoft's OneNote? Thanks so much!

  17. Picture resize features (previous/default size + keyboard shortcut)

    I paste many images to OneNote to prepare for lessons, and every time I paste an image in its original size, I need to resize it using mouse by dragging the edges. Using the mouse every time is exhaustive.

    The below two features may be tremendously helpful in such use case:
    ■ Ability to set custom default size of pasted pictures (or set to be like previously resized picture):
    It will be helpful to have an Option to set a custom default size of the pasted pictures in OneNote.
    User can set the width or height only and image is…

    Please add the following keyboard shortcuts:
    ・Shortcut to close the navigation bar
    ・Shortcut to search OneNote by date

    Being able to use keyboard shortcuts for various operations is a strength of OneNote.
    Also, when there are a lot of notebooks, there are many instances where one needs to search within OneNote.
    Therefore, please add these ways to operate OneNote without using the mouse.

  19. Layout

    Absolutely hate the new layout - The new OneNote interface takes up way too much screen space (expansion of all the menu options on the left side of the screen takes up almost half of the display). Please offer the option to switch back to the horizontal layout, or at the very least, allow us to move the menu to the right side of the screen so that our notes don't shift every time we navigate our notebook. I understand the pressure to match competitors (such as, Notability), but to change something that already works well is a terrible move.…
