    • Add find and Replace

      Add find and replace. This is self explanatory. And I have no fucking clue why its not there. Never-mind, I remember, you're Microsoft.

      • tags

        Working for years with Evernote I am missing some features.

        1. Multi-Tags
        2. Synchronisation / import tags from Outlook.
        3. Easy import tags from Evernote

        In this order! !

        And thumbs up for all other ideas around tags here!!!

          Thank you for voting on this feature. I’d like to gather more information on what you would like to see in the future. I have posted 4 questions below —

          1. How often do you tag a note/item with multiple tags?
          a) Never
          b) Rarely
          c) Sometimes
          d) Often
          e) Always

          2. Can you provide an example, from a recent instance, in which you applied multiple tags? e.g. “todo” & “critical” and “todo” & “important”

          3. Some of you commented that it’s important to see all the tags for each item in the summary list, not just the first tag for an item. If multiple tags were shown for each item on the summary list, what would this allow you to do next?

          4. When finding tags in OneNote 2016, which tag list is most important to you? Why?
          a) Summary Page
          b) Tags Summary Pane

        • Select a thumbnail for pages

          We would like to use the select tool to select some ink or an image, that will be used as the thumbnail for pages. OneNote currently selects a section of the page that is often unrecognisable as a thumbnail.

          • Sub Pages more than two levels

            To organize my work I need more than two level of subpages. Minimum ten level will be good. Maximum 20 level will be great. On other respect One Note is great. For time being I have to find other alternative until you get it right

            • Integrate paper size function to OneNote for Windows 10

              Please reintegrate paper size function in Windows 10. This feature is realy usefull.

              Feature improvement: ... would be great to have the possibility to set just a paper width but without a fix height. This would improve printability of documents without loosing the limitless paper feature.

              • Collaborate with Microsoft To-Do

                The concept is to have a "notebook" in which you could edit/create/view all todos from Microsoft To-Do.
                In conjunction with To-Do reminders you should be able to "link" somehow (like the tag of Evernote) an Onenote note with a To-Do.

                So you could get due day notifications for notes of OneNote through To-Do. Multiple links of notes with one To-Do could create a "tracking" system with due reminders.

                To-Do is light and fast. It could be utilized more easily and giving OneNote "project management" capabilities.

                Also usefull:
                Export a To-Do to onenote for further processing.

                This suggestion is for all…

                  Please repair the "Search for words in audio" function in OneNote 2016. It does not work even after "Enable searching audio and video recordings for words" has been selected.

                  • Auto-complete tag text

                    I tag my notes with Locations, People, Dates, etc... I would love for the text I type to auto-complete and show me what I've titled a similar tag. Here's an example:

                    I am tagging a note with the location being my work office, so I add the Location tag, and start typing "Global HQ." However, I don't remember if I've named it previously as "Global HQ" or "Global Headquarters" or "Main Office". So, I have to create a tag summary page to look at all of the locations that I have used in the past, confirm the proper name of…

                      • Fix Bug with hotkey (window + shift +s) screen clipping not prompting where to send the screen clipping

                        Ever since the new update Window + shift + s hotkey no longer prompts the user where it wants to send the screen clipping. Instead, it stores the clipping in clipboard. This is inefficient. If you manually select "take screen clipping" the prompt will work as designed.

                        • [BUG] Fix OneNote 2010 Sync With OneDrive (aka All Sections Disappear Bug 2017)

                          As of May 2017, users of Microsoft OneNote 2010 that sync their notebooks with OneDrive are experiencing an issue where all sections in their notebooks disappear. Users then have to manually sync all their notebooks which some users report will restore their sections temporarily. Eventually their sections will disappear again usually after an hour or two.

                          Screenshot of the problem:

                            • Toggle for edit/view modes

                              Could you please add an option to toggle between modes for editing and viewing/reading pages? Or, maybe you could add an option to Protect pages, like in Word.

                              Sometimes, I actively edit pages. But, at other times, I only want to read/view pages with annotated articles, references, etc. Often, when I'm scrolling through articles while reading/viewing (using my finger on the Surface), I'll accidentally drag images or annotations around and have to undo the changes. It would be nice to be able to read pages in a view mode. Thanks.

                              • auto completion

                                Could you add an autocompletion functionnality? :) What I mean is that you type the beginning of a word and it automatically detects what word you want to write, then by simply pressing tab (or other; tab is for linux console if I remember correctly) the rest of the word prints out.

                                I thought this function existed in Microsoft Word also, no ? Would it be such a pain to add it in OneNote ? :)

                                Thank you !! :D

                                  • Encryption - Zero Knowledge - Only User Has Access To Password - Only way for safe Encryption

                                    For journalists, businesses, political activists, lawyers, etc. a true zero knowlegde encryption is the only real encrtyption option that can be trusted. This is something, many competitioners alreay offer, and in increasing demand.

                                    This way, only the user has the password for decryption, not MSFT. With the trust in MSFT ruined after Snowden, the only way to get this trust back.

                                    • Add categorize notes with custom tags and quickly find them later in OneNote for Windows 10

                                      Add categorize notes with custom tags and quickly find them later in OneNote for Windows 10: this is one of the main features I am using to organize my notes. Without it I will not switch to the new version and will keep on using the desktop version

                                      • Allow OneNote for Windows to sync to local hard drive just like OneNote 2016 Desktop

                                        One feature I like very much about OneNote 2016 is the ability to store or sync on a local drive. This is very important. If you would allow that functionality for One Note Windows 10 that would be great. I know the cloudy is important but having a legacy feature to store locally is a must.

                                        • Meetings notes page moving with re-scheduled meetings in Outlook

                                          I use OneNote to capture agenda topics and required discussion notes for meetings scheduled in Outlook. These meetings have not happened yet. These notes act as a reminder for the meeting.
                                          If I have logged the notes for an, upcoming, scheduled meeting, and the meeting moves - the notes pages does not carry through to the re-arranged meeting and I have to find the old note page again. Can you please correct as I can't imagine anyone not wanting this functionality.
