  1. Na dann wird es aber HÖCHSTE Zeit, dass das mal von der Entwicklung möglich gemacht wird!!! Ich kann nicht verstehen warum man Audio- u. Vi

    Hallo,

    Ich habe jetzt lange gesucht und auch Webseiten zum Thema durchgesucht, aber ich kann noch immer nicht glauben, dass man mit dem Tablet und der gekauften OneNote-Version keine Fotos direkt aufnehmen kann, wo es doch mit Videos gar kein Problem ist. Gibt es kein Add-In, kein Registry-Hack oder ähnliches? Es geht hier um Baustellenbesichtigungen, wo alles unter einer Oberfläche gemacht werden soll: Problem fotografieren, auf dem Bild beschriften, absortieren. Und da hilft es nicht, ein Film-Symbol in der Notizenseite zu haben, da braucht man ein Bild, das gleich an der richtigen Stelle steht. Wie es auf dem Telefon ganz…

      • Add categorize notes with custom tags and quickly find them later in OneNote for Windows 10

        Add categorize notes with custom tags and quickly find them later in OneNote for Windows 10: this is one of the main features I am using to organize my notes. Without it I will not switch to the new version and will keep on using the desktop version

        • Bullet Journals and page templates

          I have a 'Bullet Journal' type of section which is really just a bunch of unaesthetic tables I've built.

          It would be great if OneNote gave us an option to create specific types of Notebooks. For example, a bullet journal outfitted with popular 'stamps' the ability to create our own stamps, etc. (Like for weather, Names of Months, etc.) and would contain page templates tailored to such a purpose (like the signature 'BuJo' pages).

          'Notebook' templates could be designed for anything that ON is used for that has a very similar look and commonly used (or needed functions) for various…

          • Storing and exporting notes locally should be available in the Windows 10 app.

            I realize Microsoft is trying to move (force) everyone to the cloud, but for various reasons I need to store my notebooks offline sometimes. For instance, I export copies of my notes that I post to students. I share (like - give a copy to, not work collaboratively with) my colleagues when they are teaching a similar class. I am also frequently offline, for instance at off-site meetings, and still wish to take and use my notes. Furthermore, for accreditation purposes, I store back-up versions of my notes, as a historical record of how my courses have improved.

            • tags onenote modern app

              modern app of onenote should have the same tags as desktop (and syncing between versions). As it is now, one cannot apply the same tags in modern as uses in desktop version what makes using modern app impractical

              • Embedding on One Note

                Items like Sway presentations and Forms should be embeddable on One Note.

                • OCR editing

                  It'd be great to have an OCR editing option where moving the pointer over a word in a document, that the OCR result would be made visible and editable.

                  • export

                    If you want to distribute a existing onenote file it must be possible, to export this file as an onepkg-file like in OneNote 2016. Onenote is perfect to develop expert knowledge systems. There must be a way to pack a filled notebook in one file which you can store local, f.e. on CD-ROM or which you can send as an attachment by E-Mail.

                      Definitely needs a comments facility like word and excel...often find myself instinctively looking for this option in OneNote as it's such a useful feature of other programs. Please add it!!

                      • Carry customizations to web version

                        When I customize tags, create templates, etc., they should carry over to the web version of OneNote as well. In general, the web version should look and act more like the desktop version.

                        • Preformatted Text Styles

                          the text styles that are available in OneNote 2016 should have the same editing feature as Word 2016 in which it allows you to edit pre-made text styles or add new ones (Heading 1, Heading 2, etc.).

                          • outlook task - multiple user

                            As we work on an Team Notebook we tried to create Outlook Tasks from our To-Do List in OneNote.
                            As soon as one Person flagged the Tasks as Outlook Tasks have no longer the option to flag the Tasks as Outlook Taks. Its grey. As we use this List as a Team List everyone should have the List in his Outlook tasks to get a overview over completed and active tasks. Therefore it should be possible that multiple Users are enabled to flag the Task List as outlook taks to have the tasklist availlable in outlook.

                                  • When taking notes that include \\*, OneNote decides the text is a URL; Remove Hyperlink needs to be enabled!

                                    Try opening onenote on desktop and typing \\* (say it's the start of a regex, or something else I care about) and then wanting it to be text not a hyperlink.
                                    - Undo (ctrl-z) undoes the URL formatting + typing, not desired
                                    - Right click, Remove URL is disabled
                                    - Right click, Edit URL, remove the hyperlink results in OK being disabled

                                    • Скроллинг

                                      Длительное время не работает прокручивание полосы (панели) записных книжек и полосы (панели) страничек в ONENOTE при пользовании тачпадом. Однако при пользовании мышью и сенсорным экраном указанные полосы (панели) работают нормально. Прокручивание (скролинг) панели записных книжек тачпадом становится возможным только при двойном клике по разделу. Подскажите, пожалуйста, как исправить этот неудобство. (WINDOWS 10 HOME, OFFICE 365, HP PAVILION x360 CONVERTIBLE.) Спасибо.

                                      • Скроллинг

                                        Длительное время не работает прокручивание полосы (панели) записных книжек и полосы (панели) страничек в ONENOTE при пользовании тачпадом. Однако при пользовании мышью и сенсорным экраном указанные полосы (панели) работают нормально. Прокручивание (скролинг) панели записных книжек тачпадом становится возможным только при двойном клике по разделу. Подскажите, пожалуйста, как исправить этот неудобство. (WINDOWS 10 HOME, OFFICE 365, HP PAVILION x360 CONVERTIBLE.) Спасибо.

                                        • [BUG] Jittery lines in OneNote 2016 using new surface pen

                                          Unless one is very zoomed in, when using the new surface pen, lines come out very jittery.
