• ## "More Notebooks" shows old notebooks I no longer have

When I click "More Notebooks..." I see a bunch of notebooks I no longer have. If I try opening them, I get "Sorry, we couldn't open the notes that you were looking for..."

• ## **Latex: $** Integrate math direct-type function via$ symbol like Latex

i.e. $(auto-math correction)$

e.g. when typing $\alpha - \beta$ with the symbol \$ on both side, Onenote can auto-math correct it to α-β directly without pressing alt+=

Then we can type the big formulas quickly and directly!

• ## Search closed notebooks

"Search all notebooks" is extremely misleading, as the search only pulls up results in OPEN notebooks.
There should be an option to "search all open notebooks" and "search all notebooks (including closed ones)".

I'm genuinely nonplussed that users haven't gone up in arms about this. Why would you want to create a note and then never be able to find it again? What's the point of the note? Perhaps people just never close their notebooks. Unfortunately, when I migrated from Evernote to OneNote, all my notebooks were closed.

OneNote would greatly elevate its usefulness by adding commenting within highlight capabilities like Adobe. The contents should be searchable

One of the most powerful feature is the ability to tag things as Outlook Tasks. Also the ability to create a OneNote page from a meeting. These features are the heart and soul of OneNote.

• ## Sharing a OneNote where users cannot edit main copy but can edit their version

Users should be able to share a document on OneNote as read-only, and the recipients must be able to edit and comment on their version without affecting the main published document. The primary document should retain edit or change controls with the primary editor. Ownership changes should filter to members.

The main document should only be edited by the creator, or those given edit rights. When the creator edits or adds a section it should still update to all recipients.

• ## 2016

I think I have the same idea as lots of users on this thread - please don't discontinue the 'desktop' version of onenote. I appreciate that much of what i have to say has already been said, but want to add my voice to the chorus. I'm currently the dean of an academic unit at a university and use OneNote 2016 daily and have been encouraging its use in variety of contexts (working with a variety of committees, keeping meeting notes, sharing ideas, etc.). In fact, I purchased the first version of a MS Surface almost entirely to use onenote…

• ## Copy indented text to plain text pastes with leading tabs + last line doesn't (bug)

I would like to be able to copy text that is indented - and be able to paste it as plain text - without the leading tabs that OneNote inserts to represent the indent.
I use indenting a lot to put information under headings (so they can be collapsed etc - but also to make it look neat) - which is great.
But I want to copy text from an indented section - and then paste it as plain text - eg. into a notepad - or into some configuration/device etc. But even when pasting as plain text - OneNote…

• ## OneNote Ignores Default Font

I have set OneNote's default font to Segoe UI. However, OneNote will often (and randomly) switch my font back to Calibri when I hit "Enter". This happens regardless of the fact that the above and surrounding text is already set to Segoe UI. This disregard for user input and customization wastes time and makes the work that I deliver look inconsistent and messy. Not sure why Office needs to insist on using Calibri.

• ## Microsoft should reorganize the members of the OneNote Team

OneNote is amazing,But the current OneNote Team is too poor to develop OneNote。
In the past 10 years, they haven't made a little improvement in OneNote.Instead, they are going to give up OneNote2016.
Many functional defects, there were many user feedback 10 years ago, and now they are still unable to correct these problems.
For example: the most basic search function can only search natural words, and can not search for user-defined words. Many times, the search results are incomplete, some of the contents are not searched. Do OneNote Teams never use OneNote search?
The uwp version can't even create…
