  1. [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.

    • Search for words in audio

      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.

        • 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…

          • [BUG] 32-bit click-2-run installs wrong version of search filter ONFILTER.DLL on 64-bit o/s

            As documented on answer.microsoft.com:
            https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/forum/msoffice_onenote-mso_win10/onenote-2016-index-location-unavailable-search/d78e7999-511f-4f78-b0ad-3d2711f08435
            Click2Run has been installing the wrong version of onfilter.dll for some time now, for anyone installing 32bit OneNote on 64-bit windows. The installer is putting the 32-bit version (filesize 395,464 bytes) in the folder C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\root\VFS\ProgramFilesX64\Microsoft Office\Office16 where the 64-bit version is required (file size 464,072 bytes) Both refer to 0365 16.0.8229.2045. Manually installing the correct version gets undone regularly by C2R maintenance jobs.
            Consequence of installer bug is that Windows cannot index / update index for OneNote content, resulting in slow searches from within OneNote.
            It would be great if you could…

            • 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.

              • 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.

                      • Create a progress bar/chart for completed todo's

                        When a major project has many todo's to be performed before the project is completed, it is not always easy or clear to know how much of the tasks are completed compared to how many are still uncompleted. A chart or progress bar would be useful to quickly see the how many tasks are done. It would also give a rough estimate on the length of time still required before the complete project is completed.

                        • New notes to be inserted on top

                          Please get this as a possibility for users - new notes are more important than old ones -> when sending to onenote there should be a choice for users to get this inserted on top of page, not bottom
                          Please !

                            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.

                            • Please Undo the Change to Rule Line spacing. It caused writing on old pages to be misaligned

                              The rule line spacing was changed on the OneNote app, so notes that were written earlier now have writing that's no longer aligned with the lines.
                              This issue is confined to the OneNote app, the 2016 version still shows the correct setting.

                              Side-by-side comparison:

                              • Improve List Management

                                I would really like seeing better facilities for handling lists:
                                Rearranging items
                                Promoting and demoting items
                                Collapsing and expanding a item and its sub-items
                                I used this feature often in the late, lamented, ecco pro utility
                                and use it now in the online checkvist application

                                There are also some other good suggestions for list management improvement already posted: sorting, drop-lists

                                  It would be great to have handwriting to text available on the ipad pro. as this would make a significant improvement to the work functionality of the ipad. I really want to take it to meetings and replace my work book, so I can write it down once.

                                  • Find & Replace

                                    The only reason I got OneNote last week was because I assumed it might have some cool features that LibreOffice, MS Word, or OpenOffice lack. I thought it might make my work more productive.

                                    I've just decided to uninstall OneNote,
                                    when I discovered to my astonishment
                                    that OneNote lacks even the most basic features--
                                    viz., a Find & Replace option.

                                    What takes me 4 seconds, literally,

                                    takes me AT LEAST 20 seconds in OneNote
                                    (because I need to manually replace
                                    every instance of the name).

                                      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!!!

                                        OneNote professional needs the full set of editing tools from Word/PowerPoint. Crop, align, correction, borders, effects - the entire set.

                                        • tables must behave like word and powerpoint

                                          editing and managing tables is counter-intuitive because it does not behave with the same controls as with powerpoint and word. Please align
