How can we improve OneNote for Windows?

Find & Replace

The only reason I got OneNote last week was because I assumed it might have some cool features that LibreOffice, MS Word, or OpenOffice lack. I thought it might make my work more productive.

I've just decided to uninstall OneNote,
when I discovered to my astonishment
that OneNote lacks even the most basic features--
viz., a Find & Replace option.

What takes me 4 seconds, literally,
in the free LibreOffice Writer
takes me AT LEAST 20 seconds in OneNote
(because I need to manually replace
every instance of the name).
I use Find & Replace multiple times a day,
for multiple occurrences of names in a document.
Therefore, it would be a tremendous WASTE OF TIME
for me to use OneNote at all.

If OneNote lacks even this basic feature,
I'll just assume that it's not worth getting to know.

It was nice downloading you, getting to know you for a few days,
then uninstalling you.

Sincerely,
Jonathan

        Try Onetastic for onenote, they have ton of macros, you can even use find and replace to change hyperlinks. Once you read this spread the word; too many of the uservoice complaints can be solved easily with onetastic.
