  1. It would be great if was possible to integrate Antidote corrector

    Antidote is integrated in Word, PowerPoint etc.. why not in onenote ?

    • Indicate Eraser Type in Toolbar

      I like the idea of separate buttons for Eraser & Stroke Eraser, but if the separate buttons suggestion doesn't happen, it would at least be nice to know which one I am currently using. I seem to remember seeing a little indicator on the lower right of the button that does this in a previous version (although I could be wrong).

      • Don't spell check when Code style is applied

        When Code style is applied, do not spell check the text, as it leads to really ugly and hard to read visualization.

        • Make the OneNote app work properly on WIndows 10

          I used to use OneNote in my old job. Our Company used it widely for sharing ideas, meeting notes, etc. and found its lack of the more formal constraints found in Word and easy access by all very useful. However, having bought a brand new Windows 10 PC, I just cannot get the app to run (or Sticky Notes, or the Solitaire collection). I've tried Microsoft help and got to the "we have to reinstall WIndows" stage - not an option I'm afraid! I've been on forums and found other people seem to have the same problem. I'm convinced it's…

          • Edit attached/embedded Office files

            In OneNote 2016 an attached Excel/Word file could be opened from OneNote, edited, saved, and synced automatically back to OneNote.

            Now, in OneNote Windows 10, such files can only be opened as "Read Only."

            • Floating Videos

              Could you please add a floating video feature to OneNote so that when taking notes on the video and scrolling through them, the video that I am watching hovers (much like YouTube, FaceBook & news websites).

              Thanks!

              • drag graphics to desktop

                Ability to drag graphics (screenshots, photos) from OneNote directly to desktop, without having to first select the image then 'save as' to desktop, which is more time-consuming.

                • More integration with other Microsoft Office Products and 0365 Apps

                  It appears to me like many of the suggestions here are really just asking for more integration of OneNote and other Microsoft Office Products / O365 Apps. Microsoft is doing great work with all of these apps but there doesn't appear to be any communication between the teams that build all of these different apps. People compare and contrast features available because they all have the Microsoft brand name attached to it. They assume that there is some level of communication which allows teams to collaborate even if there don't appear to be any surface level relationship/connection between products. Providing…

                    There needs to be an option where the mouse curser is shown instead of a pen tip. I don't have a touch screen laptop and i can't waist time in class trying to find the pen tip

                      • Create All Tasks pane/page "WITHIN OneNote" and keep it updated

                        I know that creating tasks in OneNote sync's them with outlook, but what I want is to sync all the tasks from Outlook & OneNote into a single page/pane in OneNote and automatically update it.

                        I'd like to have a single page showing all the completed, assigned & follow up tasks that are there for a particular section or the entire Notebook. This way I'll have a page in OneNote where I can see all the tasks at once and add any comments if necessary.

                        • Equation editor BUG

                          In the equation editor after typing either \bigcap or \bigcup the symbol gets shofted to the right so that it overlays with the formula that‘s written in the unification/cut. This does make a lot of text unreadable. Here is a forum entry from someone else having the issue and me commenting on it:

                          https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/forum/msoffice_onenote-mso_win10-mso_365hp/issue-with-the-set-operationsformula-on-the/077446a6-fefd-44ac-bb01-6ef8eca04e93?messageId=650dfddb-b37f-4e5c-864d-eac67d8872c9

                          I hope that this will be resolved some time soon.

                          • Outlook to OneNote

                            If you drag an email from Outlook to OneNote sidebar and select Printout you get a print out of the email and a file that opens up as an email. If you Send to OneNote from Outlook you only get the print out. Send to OneNote should give both option.

                            • Remove page title

                              The fact that I cannot remove a page title without renaming the page to "Untitled Page" and, the fact that I cannot move that page title around the page when I do include it is the single greatest reason why I cannot use OneNote. Surely the content of a page should be up to the user, and not a requirement of the system...?

                                  • Hyperlinks tolerant of quotes

                                    Hyperlinking should tolerate enclosing quotes. (<shift>+Right Click "Copy as Path" produces links in quotes. OneNote will not accept them as-is, the quotes must be removed. My idea is to make the hyperlinking dialog parse inputs slightly more than now, enough to realize enclosing quotes are harmless and auto-remove/ignore them.

                                    • Make gallery and drop-down options in the Quick Access Toolbar navigable via KeyTips

                                      The KeyTips (AKA as Alt Key Navigation) are a FANTASTIC feature of the Office suite in general and an amazing time-saver in OneNote in particular. However, it is a bit difficult to use the KeyTips to their maximum potential when there are certain commands that aren't assigned KeyTips even though you can invoke the initial menus that contain them.

                                      One such example of this is the "Page Templates" Quick Access toolbar command.

                                      Please extend this functionality to ALL options that appear on-screen in the UI.

                                      I also would love to see this in Publisher so a user could easily insert…

                                        My OneNote for Windows 10 is very slow to load. I would like it to load more quickly, like my OneNote for Office that I have at work. I would also like the tabs on top, like my OneNote at work. Since versions have been coded both ways, it should be easy to make this a user option....
