  1. Give us the previous navigation layout back in OneNote for Windows 10

    I HATE the layout of the new navigation manu in the latest update of OneNote app for Windows 10, in this model, you can't customize the menu position, etc while you could in the previous versions. I don't understand why you think you need to change what's good while you do not touch what's bad! Please give us the previous navigation layout. It had no problem.

  2. One Note for Windows 10 lacks many of the basic features available on OneNote 2016

    I'm not quite sure how Microsoft describes OneNote for Windows 10 as the "best version" when it lacks many of the basic features available on OneNote 2016. I'm sure there are several other features missing from this supposedly new and improved version, but I'll list a few problems I ran into that are of absolutely no issue on OneNote 2016.


    1. In OneNote for Windows 10 you can only insert a printout of a PDF. In order to insert a PowerPoint or Word document, etc. you’ve got to first convert the file to a PDF on your own (outside of the…

  3. Section Tabs at Top

    OneNote 2016 was easier to navigate with the Section Tabs at the top instead of on the side. Please add an option to adjust the location of the Sections tabs.

  4. Please include the PDF Export from OneNote 2016!

    The ability to export single pages, sections and entire notebooks into a pdf file is a really helpful tool, that is missed by many users.

  5. Must have ability to merge and split cells!

    The most popular post that mentioned this was in 2014 and it still is not fixed, so I thought it was worth suggesting again. This seems to be a very basic functionality of a table on any computer program.

  6. Adding mathematical formulas in dark mode

    As of now in OneNote, it's hard to add formulas in dark mode because the white text is highlighted white when entering formulas and hence you can't see what you're typing unless you switch to light mode and then enter the formula and then switch back.

  7. Keep Outlook Integration In OneNote for Windows (Like 2016)

    One of the most powerful feature is the ability to tag things as Outlook Tasks. Also the ability to create a OneNote page from a meeting. These features are the heart and soul of OneNote.

  9. Send Page via Outlook Email

    OneNote 2016 allowed users to send a page via e-mail after it was created. This is absolutely critical for users that leverage OneNote to capture notes from meetings to send those notes out to all attendees (many of whom, especially leaders, do not use OneNote). Currently, when the "Share" button is clicked, and "Send a Copy" selected, only Twitter and Windows Mail show up as options for sending e-mail. For companies that require Outlook, this is unacceptable. We need the ability to do two things natively: track attendance (where did the checkboxes go?) and send pages via e-mail. Very frustrating…

  10. OneNote Reminders!

    It would be so helpful if I could add reminders for tasks in onenote directly (kinda like how Evernote allows you to). I love that is done through the app so it truly pops up on my screen reminding me that I have a task to do.

    All functionality for Page Templates,

  12. Teachers with non school email adress should be allowed to use all features of ClassNotebook

    All teachers don't work in school and don't have a school email address. A teacher with gmail account should also be allowed to create and use all features of class Notebook. why disparity among teachers. OneNote should allow everyone to use classnotebook features

  13. Characters are partially removed automatically

    Hundreds of Korean users experience characters removed automatically when using latest OneNote. This problem has happened since 2018. Janet H. J Park in Microsoft Agent is only giving unhelpful response with macro reply - recommended to post here to get help.

    When user types quickly on OneNote the part of characters are gone:
    안녕 --> ㅏㄴ녕 (ㅇ is gone)
    원노트 -->노트 (원 is gone)

    https://answers.microsoft.com/ko-kr/msoffice/forum/all/%EC%9B%90%EB%85%B8%ED%8A%B8-%ED%95%9C%EA%B8%80/0eb8708b-d200-4dd8-9410-2de631948299?auth=1&page=1

    I have no idea why I need to keep using latest version of OneNote, many users already abandoned and moved to OneNote 2016.

  14. Outlook Tasks, etc.

    Need to continue to have all Outlook integration functionality in Onenote for Windows (particularly task creation) if you are going to sunset Outlook 2016. Difficult to understand how it could be a good business decision to do otherwise.

  15. Need paper size options!

    The infinite paper size being the only option forces me to keep using OneNote 2016 or a simple pdf editor instead of OneNote for Windows 10. It is impossible to export anything from OneNote if I cannot tell where the page ends--it always will format horribly.

  17. O365 meeting integration

    In onenote 2016 you could click a button in the outlook meeting, all meeting information opened in a new note and if you used Skype for business in tracked attendance. It was brilliant. Now as 2016 is deprecated we corporate users are losing this great productivity feature. Please please revive it

  18. Add option to "Lock password protected sections after I have not worked in them for the following amount of time".

    OneNote 2016 has the advanced option "Lock password protected sections after I have not worked in them for the following amount of time". Such an option does not seem to exist in OneNote for Windows 10. The features of OneNote for Windows 10 have improved a lot over the past year or so, but having to reenter the password after only 5 or 10 minutes of inactivity is annoying and is the one thing keeping me from switching from OneNote 2016. Please add this feature to OneNote for Windows 10.

  19. Menu to Copy, Paste or Delete should appears automatically after selecting text! (Auto Prompt Menu for Touch Select )

    As the tittle says, I think for mostly students this should be a must to have feature since we keep deleting groups of text or even copy and paste it.

    Imagine having to hold the selected text to open the menu to copy or paste 100x ... it is tiring. Doing it automatically would turn it so efficient and save us so much time!

  20. Show print lines on each page

    By default there is no way to see if your written notes exceed one page. You have to write very small or adjust the whole text to fit into a page so I can print it out.
    I would appreciate a feature like in Excel where you simply can tick a box an you can see where the border of a page is.
