  1. Dotted lines, fill shapes, etc

    Just add the features found in software like smartdraw or google drawing. I want to see different line styles including dashed and dotted lines. The ability to draw all shapes using the different line types, like a dashed rectangle or circle. Also a color fill tool to fill any shape or enclosed area. More pen types would be awesome, but not as crucial to me as the aforementioned suggestion.

    • Easier Table Fill Option

      Table fill should not be hidden behind 2 or 3 clicks. Make this more up front, maybe on right click

        • Scroll through different pages

          When I open a workbook , i have created several pages - I should be able to go to different pages simply by scrolling the mouse.
          I am working in page 1. I need to find something on other pages , then I have to click on indiviual pages.
          Instead of this , I take the mouse on right side where the pages are listed and simply scroll the mouse . This should select the pages and also display that page on the left section

          This would be very convenient .

          • Custom work spaces and ability to manage, name, toggle between, set defaults, etc.

            Including (but not limited to) the ability to adjust the following paramters and make them unique to a given work space:
            -custom toolbar
            -custom view (such as full screen with task bar)
            -arrangements of tools and other windows
            -Commands
            -Settings
            -Screen options (e.g., arrangements in dual monitor vs. single monitor display)

            • Zoom to Selection

              Would love to be able to drag a selection box over an area and zoom to that selection, similar to how we can zoom to the current page width.

                • 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…

                        • Fix new note movement bug when offline

                          When I create a new note offline in one of sections and then try to move to another section it says that the note is not fully synced. When I connect to wifi afterwise and try to move the same note again it shows "Downloading page..." box and then (after long time) "Something went wrong". Afterwise when I try to sync the notebook it never completes syncing.

                            • Add a FORWARD button... It just makes sense.

                              I LOVE the BACK button in the upper left corner of the window and use it ALL of the time. It just makes sense that a FORWARD button is needed right next to it. I frequently toggle back and forth between pages in different notebooks. Right now, I can simply click the BACK button to go back, but I have to go to File -> (scroll to desired notebook) -> View Notebook to go "forward" to the notebook I just was in before clicking the BACK button!

                                Please, please, please add an Add Calendar to the INSERT TAB. I just spent over an hour searching for a good one I could type into. It would be great to be able to format one to fit the rest of my page and personal preferences. Really it seems it would be something quite useful to many users.

                                  • Ability to tag individuals to actions

                                    OneNote is incredibly powerful for meetings and in any meeting, actions are created and allocated to individuals.

                                    It would be really useful if when creating actions and adding a to do tag, you could add an individuals name (or initials) to the action.

                                    They could then find tags based upon when their name is mentioned.

                                    We do this manually at the moment by adding initials at the beginning of actions but some sort of automated process would make things easier.

                                    Similar functionality has appeared in Outlook for mentioning individuals and then being able to find when you are mentioned. A…

                                    • Please, fix the proofing language bug.

                                      You can't set the proofing language, somehow Onenote automatically uses the display language. Very frustrating when editing or taking notes in a different language. It baffles me why this is not fixed.

                                        • Unique theme for each Microsoft Office Application

                                          The color themes (such as "Dark", "Colorful", "White") should be able to be customized to each individual application (such as one for Outlook, one for OneNote, etc). Having a blanket theme for all office applications doesn't work for me.
