How can we improve OneNote for Windows?

Windows Store app: Disable spell check

The OneNote app does not offer any option to turn off the automatic spell check, which leads to a flood of red underlines in text fragments that are in a different language than the system default.

        "This feature is now available in OneNote for Windows 10." No, it is not. And never be.

        Still not working, Settings -> Options -> Hide Spelling is absolutely useless. Why is this so difficult?

        OneNote Team. As of February 22nd 2017 No it is not. How can you come here and post a lie being an Admin?

        @OneNoteTeam: can you explain how to disable all these red underlines?
        Settings -> Options -> Hide Spelling Errors has no effect.

        OneNote Team say...
        "This feature in now available in OneNote for Windows 10."
        Ah, NO! The option Settings -> Options -> Hide Spelling Errors (under Proofing)
        is actually there, but turning it on HAS NO EFFECT! Red squiggly underlines persist.

        Where/how?

        Installed version 17.7766.57951.0 (cannot find any update in the store): Einstellungen - Optionen - Korrekturhilfen: Rechtschreibfehler ausblenden does not seem to have any effect. Text is still full of red underlines.

        (Sorry for German text, I don't have an English system available right now. The setting I mentioned is the last one on the "Options" page.)

        Could you please give a hint how to disable the spell check in the standard Onenote app for Windows 10? I don't see any option to do that in the Onenote app.

        As far as Windows 10 Mobile is concerned, problem seems to have been solved. It appears that a recent update has added option in settings to disable spell check underlines. (I couldn't find any official update statement.) After restarting the app on my phone all red lines are gone.

        The option 'Hide spelling errors' in OneNote doesn't do anything for me. Still red underlines everywhere

        It is very disturbing to be not able to disable the grammar correction in OneNote. Never seen this in any other decent programme. Should be changed

        Hm, the same here. I would like to use OneNote App on Windows 10. But I have to make notes in several languages.
