    • password

      It would be nice if I could enter a password once, and any section I open (within a session) that uses that password would be unlocked; with the password-per-section granularity, sometimes I keep entering the same password within seconds as I'm browsing between a number of locked sections.

      • BUG: OneNote Version 17.8269.57741.0 When trying to move multiple pages within one section, One Note crashes.

        moving single pages up and down within the section works.
        It should be possible to move multiple pages without loosing the section/subsection declaration of said pages.

        • subsection

          The ability to create more A4 pages in a section (to feel more like a real page-like notebook).

          The ability to minimize the subsections of a subsection. Currently, you can only minimize the subsections of a section.

          • You need to improve the journal line notebook viewing feture.

            The feature to view the background with notebook lines is very cool, and a feature that makes OneNote look more natural and compelling, but it is only a background/ backdrop feature, and you cannot really adjust the writing box to fit into or in-between the writing lines. I have tried numerous font and font sizes, but none seem to fit accurately or in line with the notebook lines. I would really love a template background that automatically adjusts the cursor/ font size to fit the notebook lines. It would really help as this feature helps with my eyes and just…

              I want to be able to update the copy of the document using the source document. Currently I have to make the change in the original document and then re-attach it to be able to have the updated document.

              • Fix the periodic ink shift!

                At times, the notes I have will just shift and jumble themselves around. This happens at random.

                • Active Browser Tabs

                  Allow "browser-like" tabs to open above the Menu Ribbon. Often -
                  when working with multiple pages, moving content, finding a Clip - it becomes cumbersome to backtrack, locate, then return to the page I am working in. Active tabs of open pages (already used in every web browser) might be an easy upgrade, and would greatly increase the use of OneNote.

                      As for Windows, it would be useful that on One Note 2016 for Mac there were the command "it Sends to One Note"

                      • Onenote search on password protected pages

                        Password protected pages cannot be searched, which is fine, however user should have the option to enter the password for ALL pages in one key stroke to allow temporary searching. Current capability allows a PW to unlock a page for x hours, so this can't be too difficult to enable.

                        • 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

                            • Meeting details should fill out the Page title

                              In the "modern app", inserting a meeting detail does not mimic the same feature in the classic app - it leaves the page title empty, rather than inserting the meeting title as the page title.

                                • (Bug, I think) My password protected files duplicated within the same Notebook and were NOT protected.

                                  I have several sections within a notebook, I protected them via password. I protected each section independently. When I logged in the following day, all the protected sections had been duplicated and were NOT protected. I opened the files to see what they contained and they did in fact contain all the information that the originals contained.
                                  I deleted the duplicates. This has not occurred since.
                                  However, there are times that when I open One Note, it opens twice. I end up closing one so that only one remains.
                                  I put a question out there to Microsoft Community and someone…

                                    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.

                                    • OneNote files on SharePoint never delete history

                                      We store some OneNote files on SharePoint. Everything works fine except that those files are using a lot of space on SharePoint and it rapidly increase.

                                      That is because all history are kept, so anyone that make a change to the file create a new version.

                                      I logged a ticket with Microsoft and this appears to be an issue by design.

                                      The goal would be to have the versioning handled by SharePoint like any other file.

                                      Here are details on this issue on 2 posts that I created :
