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

        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.

        This is ironic - one of the things i expected OneNote to do *better* than Evernote is allow infinite levels of subpages (and sections) like in the Windows file system and in Outlook folders.

        Tags should also allow infinite nesting for folks who like that tool better.

        The limit of 255 notebooks with only one level of nesting is my biggest criticism of Evernote - where they tell you that tags are a better way to organize, but there are not enough tag "tools" to make it really work well, and no easy way to jump from notebooks to tags.

        Microsoft has a golden opportunity to make OneNote the better alternative by creating better organization tools - get busy!

        I agree, more than two subpages would be fantastic. There have been multiple occasions where I end up needing more than the two levels of subpages even after I have planned my notebook based on this limitation, this makes it difficult to find and locate information quickly.
