  1. Onenote .pdf upload and directly linking to page in pdf

    If a PDF is uploaded to onenote (Onenote uploads folder), it must also be possible to navigate directly to a specific page in the pdf in addition to navigating to the pdf only (by clicking on the pdf link in onenote).

  3. Improvements to cloud attachments/embedded files

    Some suggestions to improve this feature:

    1. If I embed a file that is already in OneDrive or Sharepoint, OneNote should detect that and embed the original file instead of creating a new copy and uploading it somewhere else inside OneDrive

    2. OneNote should allow you to edit embedded Word/Excel files directly from the preview (at least do basic edits)

    3. OneNote should index the text from embedded Word documents, so when you do a global search, you can find text located in those files as well

    Hope that helps!

  4. Add pen sets

    I understand that the ON team wants to keep the UI minimalist, so they've limited the maximum number pen slots to 15.

    However, this simply isn't enough to capture all inking contexts (eg. different page colors, technical vs. notetaking vs. doodling, etc).

    The solution, I think, is to offer "pen sets".

    Create a drop down menu on the pen toolbar to allow switching the current pen loadout between user-customizable pen sets. This would allow us to quickly access different color themes ("pastel", "dark", "rainbow", etc.) and different pen types/thicknesses ("pencils", "inks", "thick/thin").

    Thanks!

  5. Web Clipper

    I'm loving the new web clipper though it's only showing my WORK notebooks. It would be great if it would show both WORK AND PERSONAL notebooks.

  6. Bigger contrast between normal and highlighted text in dark mode

    When using OneNote in dark mode, it is not easy to see selected text. The difference between selected and normal text should be bigger. I copy and paste often from OneNote and often miss that first or last character.

  7. OneNote (app) For Windows 10 is brutally bad

    1. The simplified ribbon just ****** me off having to use this. I like having all of my buttons all in one easy shot. I don't like having to hunt and peck. 2. I want my tabs at the top and the right-hand panel for the different pages. All this left-hand rubbish...I'm trying to figure out a productive, helpful way of saying 'the app sucks,' when really, all I want to say is "this garbage sucks!" 3. I honestly don't understand why the 2016 full-on OneNote lost support. It's far more superior than this cheap plastic toy that pretends to…

  8. Large union operator not displayed right in equations

    In the Equation Editor, the large union operator is displayed to the right of its argument and limits in both OneNote 2016 and OneNote for Windows 10. It is displayed fine in Word. Please fix it.

  9. Lock the ruler in place on OneNote

    When using the ruler on OneNote, when zooming in/out the ruler moves its position. A way to lock the ruler in a position would be really useful.

  10. Kill OneNote (Windows Store App) in favor of OneNote (Desktop App)

    I don't think that the OneNote (Windows Store App) will match the OneNote (Desktop App) with the current UWP limitations.

    So kill it and go back to the Desktop App.

  14. Copy files onenote ipad

    Copying files on onenote for ipad.
    Our users use Onedrive when they are making rounds to check buildings for errors. They then note down improvements directly on pdfs in their onedrive. But they dont want to scribble on the original drawing, but make a copy first. But there is not option to copy the pdf

  16. Inserting specific page as printouts instead of whole pdf in the notebook

    Like in the Ipad app notability you can select any random page from a pdf and then insert it into your notes , unlike in one note where all you can do is insert the whole pdf and sometimes the length of the notebooks is 1000 pages and it is time consuming to find highlight the page you need

  17. "Insert" shortcut to local files

    For the love of productivity, please return the ability to insert a shortcut link to locally stored files, rather than having to upload to OneDrive, insert as an attached OneNote copy, or as a printout.

    I want to be able to easily access downloaded lecture files and handouts when I review my notes for that day, without having to connect to OneDrive on my computer or access that file through OneNote if I later want to email it or share it with someone else.

  19. scroll sensitivity

    Scrolling on the touchpad is way too sensitive. I have to either use touchscreen mode or click and drag the bar, because otherwise it just scrolls all the way to the bottom or top.
