How can we improve OneNote for Windows?

tables must behave like word and powerpoint

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

        OneNote needs to implement this to be viable for any sort of professional application.

        That would work well. I'd like to have some Excel-type functionality within OneNote. Just some tables that can be used with simple formulas

        As far as possible, ALL the Office modules should try for unity of commands & functions across modules, to minimize confusion & reduce the inter-module learning curves.

        From my view, it is not just tables that behave differently, but all "standard" objects like text boxes or pasted Excel objects. Why does OneNote not handle such objects in the same way as Word or Powerpoint?

        I agree! This is seriously frustrating! A table is pretty standardized in modern office apps. Why have a different set of rules for a note-taking app?
