How can we improve OneNote for Windows?

Sub Pages more than two levels

To organize my work I need more than two level of subpages. Minimum ten level will be good. Maximum 20 level will be great. On other respect One Note is great. For time being I have to find other alternative until you get it right

        I Agree, more levels is need to make information more organized and easier to target (get an overview over) the information you are looking for while keeping the information you are not looking for collapsed.

        I totally agree. I am surprised this isn't already a feature of Onenote. Does Evernote have this feature? I've been thinking of switching platforms...

        "W-O-W!!! OneNote 2013 is AMAZING for this government legal work, this is going to revolutionize everything, quick get ITS on the phone so we can acquire licens-"
        "It only supports 2 levels of subpages"
        "... Into the trash it goes."

        Hey, do you think those Evernote guys would like to make money today?

        2 levels only is ridiculous. It prevents anyone with any project of complexity or detail to find an alternative to using OneNote. It's a great product -- but we will never use it until you allow a dozen levels of subpages.

        why doesnt it work?
        is there a necessity for this, arising from the code structure which would be hard to fix?
        or is it just because?

        I have been using Onenote for a while and I feel anyone using Onenote would like this feature. Only two sub-page level does not suffice.

        Another example of programmers putting in unnecessary restrictions because they know better than we do how we are going to use the application. I can say that, because I'm a programmer. Microsoft, PLEASE remove the limit!

        I actually disagree with this. I used to want this feature, but now I think it's a blessing it wasn't available to me and it forced me to managed my notes much better than I would have. I don't think you should need more than Notebook/Sectiongroup/Section/Level1/Level2/Level3 to organise your notes. I do have a lot of notebooks though, and I put them in colour blocks so you could count that as an additional level too I guess.

        OneNote used to have more (infinite, I think) levels. When they changed from 2007 format to 2010 format, they changed it to use fewer files to hold your content. If I remember correctly, it used to be that each page was a Windows file. I used to be able to nest pages to my heart's delight! I miss that ability. I'm having trouble finding things now; it's a big mess, only half as organized as I used to be able to make it.
