    • Images disapearing

      I just spent half an hour taking screen shots of important information and pasted the images side-by-side on a single onenote page.

      I turned to do something else and saw that my onenote page went blank and then only one of the 4 pictures returned. This is unacceptable!

      • Reuse Word's Spell Checker in OneNote

        You've already got a reasonably decent spell checker in Word (that offers Change All, ignore all, edit in context, etc) and it's both more useful and more friendly than the spell checker that's been in OneNote for ages. Can you leverage that for use in OneNote, please? Please??

        • Tag Display like Quick Steps

          I have quick steps setup in Outlook to move or tag emails. I would like the same sort of window within OneNote to be able to see a set of Tags all at once. This would allow one to not have to manage a list and to be able to see 6 or 8 tags all at once like you can with the quick steps window in outlook. As always being able to pick how many you see at any given time would be a plus.Then Tag away.

          • Ability to merge cells in tables in One Note.

            Linking excel spreadsheets is fine but sometimes creating a quick table in One Note is easier and fuss-free. Merging cells is one thing that will make this faster, prettier and easier to fast-edit.

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

                • Need way to tag pages as "favorites"

                  I have certain pages or sections I refer back to all the time. I'd like a way to tag these as "favorites" and to have features that allow me to see and navigate to my favorites (regardless of notebook), to limit searches to favorite pages/sections, etc.

                  • numerical day of the month

                    dd/mm/yyyy gives a text day of the week for dd. If it was a NUMERICAL day of the month, OneNote would be usable as a diary.

                      • Synch ALL Outlook Contacts with OneNote

                        ynch ALL Outlook Contacts with OneNote in one swoop. Instead of having to add a contact one by none, would like to have all my contacts synch with OneNote and stay synched. I have a notebook I share with my team and having our contacts list in there would be great for times we are not at our PCs. On the go we have OneNote app on our phones. It would be great if you could press the phone number in OneNote and make a call from there.

                        • when datahas been entered into a row on a table, that it could be locked from editing by other users.

                          it would be handy it when data has been entered into a row on a table, that it could be locked from editing by other users. The only option we have at the moment, it to password protect the entire page, which is not always useful. Another option is that once a row has been started to have data inputted into it, no one else would be able to add anything into the same row. It would need to be an option that would need setting up when creating the ntoebook.

                            Suggestion: change the way OneNote accepts emails. I am an attorney. I do lots of research online (Westlaw, Fastcase, Lexis, etc.) When I discover a useful case, all of these programs allow me to email that case to myself -- or anyone else. I would like to add the email for OneNote so that the material is placed in my client's notebook in OneNote. However, because the email transmitting the case comes from westlaw@westlaw.com (or some other address for the relevant vendor), it will not work with OneNote because OneNote requires the email to be from my email address.

                              It would be super helpful if you could choose to select multiple pages at the same time to view simultaneously. If I have a section for different cell lines, and then in those sections i have a page that shows a picture, it would be helpful to view the two or more pages form two or more different sections simultaneously to view comparisons.

                                    Microsoft please may you increase the user friendliness of OneNot by adding the horizontal scroll feature. it is long overdue. please please please.

                                        • Need coloring at Page TAGs.... Just Sync Page Title Font/Color/Type to Page TAGS...

                                          I have many sections and much much more pages in them... coloring sections are EXCELLENT... but I need the same thing for PAGES... not easy to classify them...

                                          IDEA: When I change FONT/COLOR the title of PAGE or make it bold, italic etc.... CHANGE PAGE TAG FONT at right column.

                                          I desperately need this... DO YOU?
