  1. flexible tables

    It would be great if you added some features to edit tables. Split & and merge known from excel are ok but I think about something more sophisticated. I often need to create table where eg. first two rows have 4 column, but the 3th column has only 2 and are independent of other columns. Then next rows have eg. 3 columns and so on.

    I mean sth like this below.

    |----|----|----|----|
    |----|----|----|----|
    |--|---------------|
    |-------|-------|---|
    |----|----|----|----|

      • Highlighting PDFs

        Highlighter tool is difficult to use to highlight straight lines of text in a PDF. I read that Ever Note is much better for this which makes me consider changing to Ever Note for studying.

        • Reminder

          After may suggestions from may users. I wonder why you guys still did not give options to add a reminder on "Sections" or "Pages".

          Please give us option to add a reminder on our pages so this will be a more useful app.

              • thumbprint

                I'd like the pdf document to have a thumbprint of the document instead of the generic pdf document icon so I can identify the different documents on a page

                • Two ways of using Copy Link to Paragraph

                  Hi dear OneNote team.
                  Firstly Id like to thank you for making a free Windows 10 app.
                  I am often using links in my notes. And after a while i have noted that there are two ways of using Copy Link to Paragraph:
                  1 method: Select a paragraph and right click > Copy Link to Paragraph.
                  Then more the cursor to where you cant to paste the Link. Upon pressing Paste, it will paste a link within the same text that i had selected. To edit this text, i have to go Right click > Link > Edit Link >…

                  • print to onenote: should be able to move the print to a more appropiate spot on the page

                    It would be great if I could "move" the print out on the page. Or even cut/copy/paste onto another page after printing.
                    I believe I am asking to make the "printout" act more like an inserted object than a pasted pdf.

                    • Layout of Subpages

                      The current page list layout (the tab on the right side of One Note) makes it difficult to determine which level of the tree a page sits on (i.e. which pages are subpages of the parent). This could be easily improved by adding lines from parent to child folder, making it easy to quickly see where a page sits in the 'folder tree'.

                        • Author label color choice

                          I can't find an option to view/change how colors are assigned to authors. I have two authors that work on the same tabs that have colors that are extremely similar, and I'd like to change that so it's clear who's working on what. Also, I think this would be an accessibility issue for people with colorblindness issues.

                          • Option to remove automatic numbering

                            Please implement this feature. It doesn't even seem like it's this hard to implement. I'm trying to do stuff where automatic numbering becomes massively burdensome and I wish I could disable it. It's possible on OneNote 2016, why not on One Note for windows 10?

                            • Read only folder Class Notebooks

                              I would like the ability to easily go into a student's notebook, create a section in their notebooks that is read only, or to distribute a read only section. This way I can put rubrics in this folder that they cannot edit or delete.

                              It would also be beneficial to be able to create a teacher only section within individual student notebooks for keeping notes about the student and their work.

                              I know this is all possible by going through O365 and playing with the url to get into the class notebook, but it is VERY time consuming.

                              Thanks!

                              • Add pictures from camera feature to Onenote 2016

                                It should be possible to add pictures from camera directly into OneNote rather than having to go outside the program and use lens or the camera app. I've recently changed from Evernote, which has this feature, and whilst I prefer the overall functionality and integration of Onenote, the lack of this feature is pushing me back towards Evernote

                                  title to page when saving to onenote. when i used to print to onenote on the old version the curser used to be flashing at the top of the new page just saved so that you could just type the tile you wanted to call the page in.
                                  in the new version it comes up with printout written in the title, so you have to delete that first then type your new title in. i would imagine this hasn't been done without being able to change this to the old way but i can't find it in settings. just seems…

                                    Sometimes OneNote for Windows 10 should not AutoCorrect a word. I need a way to change the reference data OneNote uses to drive this or a way to turn off AutoCorrect. In other Windows applications I would remove the offending autocorrect word from the reference database. In this case, that does not appear to be available. Help!

                                    • Wrap sections and pages when cycling with keyboard shortcuts

                                      Have OneNote wrap around sections and pages when using ctrl-tab and ctrl-pagedown just like alt-tab works for cycling through windows.

                                      So when I am on the last section in my list, ctrl-tab should take me back to the first section. Now to get back to the first section, I have to press ctrl-shift-tab 10 times.

                                      • No onscreen keyboard in Onenote 2016

                                        No keyboard visible in normal mode or tabletmode for Onenote 2016 when trying to type on a page. Sad.
