  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. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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…

  5. 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)

  6. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  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.

  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. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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…

  16. 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

  17. 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

  18. copied text pastes as image in 3rd party applications

    When I copy texts from my OneNote. Either 2016 or the OneNote for Windows 10, it gets pasted as an image.
    I would like this to get pasted as text only. There is no reason why this has to be in a picture format as this is not editable anymore.
