  1. Edit Audio timing with text

    Typing in notes is not always in sync with the recording/lecturer. It would be helpful if we can edit the audio play back time relative to the text.

      • Custom hotkeys for styles

        When I am writing I need to quickly change between styles, and this is massively slowed by having to click on styles in the ribbon, it would be a lot faster with hotkeys.

        • Swype Capitalization for Mobile Not Working

          I use Swype keyboard for Android.

          For a long time, no Office mobile app handled its capitalization feature correctly. Now OneNote is the only Office outlier.

          I've reported this for a couple years. Each update, I check to see if it works yet.

          Problem:
          1. Swype a sentence of text in OneNote (mobile)
          2. Tap back in the middle to capitalize some word
          3. Perform the Swype capitalization gensture (drag Swype icon to Shift key)

          No alternatives are shown. It should show: all lowercase, first letter capital, all uppercase.

          To "wake up" OneNote, you can close the keyboard with the…

          • Toggle for edit/view modes

            Could you please add an option to toggle between modes for editing and viewing/reading pages? Or, maybe you could add an option to Protect pages, like in Word.

            Sometimes, I actively edit pages. But, at other times, I only want to read/view pages with annotated articles, references, etc. Often, when I'm scrolling through articles while reading/viewing (using my finger on the Surface), I'll accidentally drag images or annotations around and have to undo the changes. It would be nice to be able to read pages in a view mode. Thanks.

              • Concern with accessing through web browser

                When I am logged in to my account and attempt to access OneNote through my web browser i keep getting an error message "Something went wrong and we can't sign you in at the moment. Please try again later.
                The Microsoft account login server has detected too many repeated authentication attempts. Please wait a moment and try again." There appears to be quite a number of people with the same issue. I have tried 3 different browsers (Chrome, IE and Edge) on two different PC's. I have tried clearing my cache and temp internet files etc. If i choose OneDrive…

                    • Speichern von Notizbüchern auf der lokalen Festplatte statt in der Cloud

                      Dieses Feature wäre gerade für sensible Daten sehr sinnvoll und als Lehrer hätte ich es gerne in der neuesten OneNote Version wieder verfügbar, damit ich nicht OneNote 2016 nutzen muss.

                        • Solve equations in equation editor

                          OneNote solves equations when typed in plane text into the text fields.

                          I like using LaTex to type my equations in the equation editor so that it's correctly formatted. Because I use it for solving problems in university, it would be great to have an operator eg solve{} that would solve/simplify any equation that was written on the other side of the equality ie. solve{2+2=} becomes 2+2=4

                            • Allow OneNote for Windows to sync to local hard drive just like OneNote 2016 Desktop

                              One feature I like very much about OneNote 2016 is the ability to store or sync on a local drive. This is very important. If you would allow that functionality for One Note Windows 10 that would be great. I know the cloudy is important but having a legacy feature to store locally is a must.

                                  The 3D Cartesian graph looks ridiculous and not really practical. Suggest to either have the diagonal line shorter or have only the Octant I showing (positive axis only).

                                      • The mouse location doesn't correspond to where I klick in OneNote when I have different settings for two displays

                                        The mouse location doesn't correspond to where I klick in OneNote. I suppose that it has something to do with different settings/scale for two displays.

                                        • Save files to notebook from other Office Applications

                                          I am a teacher and use OneNote for lesson planning. Currently if I create a PowerPoint or Word document that I would like to attach to my notebook, I have to save it somewhere else, then use the attach feature. I know that other teachers that I have spoken to would love a button in office that would allow us to save a new document directly to OneNote. This would be similar to send to OneNote printer option, only instead of just sending a printout, It would also attach the original file directly from office without having to save elsewhere.
