    • Defined page sizes

      Let us set up defined pages to work in or at least show us where the selected page side would end with a dashed line or something. Kind of ridiculous that you would get rid of it since the reason for making notes on a computer is usually to make them a PDF....

      • Copy/Move page keyboard shortcut should work like OneNote 2016

        In OneNote 2016, it's so quick and easy to move or copy notes. You press Control+Alt+M and a dialog appears to select where to move the page.

        This shortcut works in OneNote for Windows 10 but, alas, I can't quickly send it to a section by typing the first few letters of it, or press Enter directly to move it to the most recent selected section.

        Not having keyboard input on that dialog kills the feature, now I would have to scroll and touch/click the section I want. That is so much slower!

        • Save and share with Nextcloud/WebDav

          We don't use OneDrive and never do. We would like save and share with Nextcloud Server or other WebDav Servers.
          Same for Android and iOS App.

          • Integration in Office, especially Outlook

            a big feature of OneNote 2016 ist the integration in Outlook, to sync (for example) tasks.
            So please add this feature to the app of OneNote.

                • The most important feature in OneNote 2016 for me is the search notes feature. Without this, I am lost and cannot make the change.

                  Add a search feature exactly like OneNote 2016. This is the whole reason I use OneNote 2016 religiously. Without it, the program would be too cumbersome for me to use as a project management tool.

                  • Keyboard Shortcut for Changing Heading Style

                    Keyboard shortcuts for changing Heading Style - just like in Word:
                    Alt+Shift+Left Arrow - apply Heading Style 1, then 2 etc - current outline +1 - based on current section / heading at the top of the current part of the text
                    Alt+Shift+Right Arrow - apply Heading Style current outline -1 - then back to 'Normal'
                    I use headings and indenting a lot for long notes - with multiple levels and heading - just like I would in a Word doc.
                    I want to be able to easily give my next heading the same (or lower, or higher) level as…

                    • Always Show Current Style in Ribbon

                      Always show the current Style in the Ribbon - Style Section.
                      I would like to be able to see at a glance what style is currently in use - ie. the currently selected text or where the cursor is.
                      Current OneNote does select the current style - which is great.
                      But - it doesn't scroll the list in the Ribbon - so unless you are using Heading 1 or 2 - you can't see - without going up to the ribbon and scrolling the Styles list or clicking on the drop down.
                      Just make OneNote always scroll the Style list…

                      • Add an option to make every tile transparent

                        The latest version (16.0.10325.20049) added an option to pin a transparent tile to my start screen.

                        This implementation of transparent live tiles is pure garbage. Instead of, like every other app out there since Windows Phone 8, put a toggle to make the tile transparent, you created a new tile. Using this secondary tile means:
                        - No jump list (Recent Notes), since it's exclusive to the main tile;
                        - Can't uninstall, rate or share the app (all options exclusive to the main tile);
                        - Every other tile is solid. It I pin a page, the tile is solid. If I…

                          Please add the ability to change the page size and default page size. This was present in the desktop version. When migrating from the desktop version the windows 10 version inherits the page sizes but they can no longer be edited.

                            • Make "add new page" tile transparent when !

                              The latest 16.0.10325.20049 version for Windows Insiders program brought a number of features, such as transparent tile for Start menu (you can enable this in optins). However, you can't set transparency on "add new page" tile if you've pinned this.

                              Please, fix the bug and make all OneNote tiles transparent if such setting is set on.

                                  Put a save button on it. That way you can work on many projects at once.

                                  • Sharing link within organization only

                                    Right now, you can share notebooks with specific people within your organization, or create a link that anyone can see. It would be very helpful to be able to create a link that can be shared, but only works for people within my organization. eg. materials that are intended for widespread use within the organization and are made without specific recipients in mind, but shouldn't really be shared outside the organization.

                                    As far as I know, this is currently impossible.

                                      • If the task is in any paragraph, make their indented paragraphs sync as the note of the task.
