  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…

  4. 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. 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.

  6. Users are able to classify, label and protect Onenote Notebooks and section with Microsoft Information Protection sensitivity labels

    Word, PowerPoint, Excel and several third party applications support MIP labels to flag the sensitivity and confidentiality of a document, apply protection and enforce display of content markings.
    OneNote Notebooks include just as much sensitive information documents do, and users should be able to label them in the same way with a consistent user experience.

  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

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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…

  13. OneNote pdf as printout everytime

    After one of the latest Office update my pdf documents is no longer inserted as printout in OneNote but instead as pdf icons.

    Is it possible to change it so that all pdf files is inserted as printouts?

    I use Rocketbook and everytime I upload something I have to right click to see the pdf file.

  14. 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.

  15. 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…

  16. 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.

  17. Paper styles

    please add more options for paper styles like dotted paper for clear note-taking in math as well as isometric paper for the many engineering students who use OneNote. Also, borders to show where the print guidelines are would be nice

  18. 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.

  20. 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.
