  1. Automatically resize text area to screen width

    Please add an option to allow a text area to automatically resize to the width of the screen. (i.e. when I resize the window that the text area resizes so that I never have to use the horizontal scrollbar and it uses up the full width of the screen)

    I am constantly switching between screen sizes, as I use One Note from my laptop and my monitors in work & at home. It's a pain that the text area will not automatically resize or that there is no option to set/unset this feature.

    • Change default view

      Need to be able to change the default view from Recent Items. I rather have it go to a list of Notebook.

        • Please add a thee tags (image) for showing 25%, 50%, and 75% complete for as Task.

          Currently we can use the task tag, represented by an empty or checked box, to show if a test is incomplete or complete. It would be great if we could have a tag that shows if a task is 25%, 50% and 75% complete. Maybe a box that is quater filled, half-filled, and three-quarters filled to represent tasks in progress.

          Thanks for consideration!

            • Some Ideas

              1. The way OneNote Online arranges notes, sections and pages all on the left side is quite nice. I wish the desktop version would follow this.

              2. Is there a simpler way to open multiple pages at the same time other than using multiple windows? I would like to see many notes in one page, kinda like what Google Keep does.

              3. Is there a better way to crop an image? Say I just found something interesting on my screen, what I would do is to press PrtSc and paste the screen image into whatever software and then crop the…

              • Screen Clipping choice of

                Screen Clipping choice of destination has quit working. I have selected in options>send to one note>always ask where to send. Now the Screen Clipping always goes to Clipboard. I'm using a Surface 3 with the latest Microsoft updates for OS and Word 365 that I pay for annually. The same problem started on my desktop ASUS computer about a month ago. I have not yet tried to remove One Note and Re-Install. Please provide a fix for this problem.

                • insert picture via camera

                  hi, I am using OneNote for a while now and love the whole program. what is missing is the opportunity to directly take a picture out of OneNote and insert that picture in a page. The route via camera, take the picture, save it to Surface and than insert it in OneNote is too cumbersome. thanks, R

                  • Add back in Ink-to-text

                    Ink to text is a key feature in One Note 2016. Why would you leave it out of One Note for Windows 10? Now I have to toggle between the two apps to get the functionality I want. Confusing as heck.

                    • Virtual Notebook

                      Collaboration is inevitable. After getting access to several note books from different colleagues to share notes of different meetings, I end up with multiple note books.
                      To reduces the clutter I see virtual note book will be a solution.
                      The virtual notebook is like a normal note book but it can include virtual sections linked to sections in other note books. Similarly a section can include virtual pages linked to existing pages in other note books.

                      Editing the source page or a reference page is possible and synchronized. Deleting the virtual notebook deletes all sections created in that notebook but…

                      • Section names improvement

                        It would be nice to add tags to section names.
                        Applications:
                        Add idea tag icon to a section called Ideas
                        Add follow up tag to a section called Follow Ups

                        This will make sections more meaningful to end user

                        • Make pages sortable

                          It would be nice having a function that enables to sort all and/or just underlying pages inside a section by date and title.

                            OneNote Importer For Windows does not work for me.
                            I have a Corporate OneNote account and am entering my correct corporate Microsoft credentials to import Windows Evernote. However, after selecting the items I wish to import the Importer comes back with: ":( We Can't import your content. We can't access your account. Please try again later. Drror Code: 30108"

                            • デフォルト用紙サイズを変更したい。

                              用紙のサイズが無限で書きにくい。後々印刷やpdf化のことを考えると一定サイズにカットしてくれると拡大縮小したときも現在どの大きさで書いてるのか分かりやすいかとおもいます。

                                Outlook allows users to create contact groups so users don't have to type in emails every time when they want to send something to the same group. This will help teachers to group student emails based on the class rosters and send notes to specific groups. Thank you!

                                  • Have staff trained in using the Classroom Notebooks (in educational settings) at the Microsoft Stores

                                    Please make sure that each of your stores has at least a few staff members that are trained to help teachers set up class notebooks. Several teachers at my school have made appointments to go in for personal training and help, only to find that the associate who was scheduled wasn't knowledgeable on specific class notebook questions. I went in for help and lucked into working with someone who was able to answer all of my questions, but that hasn't been my experience on all of my visits.

                                    • Undo Section Delete

                                      While using the web version of one note, I right clicked to delete a section but had apparently clicked a few pixels too high and deleted the wrong section. The individual pages are not saved nor is the section data. It seems a very large amount of notes can disappear and with no way to undo.

                                      An undo button or sending notes from a deleted section to the recycle bin would be very helpful and prevent loads of frustration.

                                      • Reviewing Student work

                                        When I bring up the list to renew student work, I then click through each one to mark it. I would like the option then to export or event print that list to show who did the work and who did not. I do not want to give grades (just feedback), and nor do I want to use Edmodo so that I can export any grades. I just want to keep the list of who did it and who didn't.

                                          I used to ask for all kinds of features. Lately, I have so many corrupted onenote files, that I am ready to move to another product. I sincerely recommend halting all new feature development and just make the darn thing reliable and recoverable.
