  1. pen strokes

    Get a pen with a different vertical and horizontal stroke - This can be simple allow a toggle on highlighters to allow opaque vs translucent and then allow smaller sizes, so they can be used as pens. This should be readable in dark screen mode. I teach and this is easier on eyes for projection.

  2. Insert equation symbols outside of equation

    In OneNote 2016 and other Office apps, Equation Symbols can be added to the Quick Access Toolbar. In Word, inserting a symbol from this menu inserts it as plain text, and in OneNote 2016, it is inserted as an equation object. Please make OneNote insert it as plain text too (unless I'm typing in an existing equation).

  4. Bug: OneNote 2016 does not pan when touch dragging the canvas where there is no page.

    In OneNote 10, if you touch the canvas where there is no page, you can drag the page around. In 2016, if you touch the canvas where there is no page, OneNote does nothing.

    This is only apparent when the page size is set to something other than auto and you are zoomed out far enough to see blank canvas.

  5. Import icloud notes

    Would be great if someone could sign in with their icloud and get all their notes transferred into one note. Maintaining the ink would be nice but simple import should be enough to help the transition to a real computer from an ipad or similar more palatable.

  8. tags per section.

    I use one section or even a group of sections to work on one project. It would be helpful if search tags could be created per section.

    Even tags per page could be useful if something specific is being searched for. In fact I have searched for paragraphs on numerous occasions before.

    Search tags will be an essential tool in OneNote and even all other Office apps.

    Thank you for your time and consideration.

  10. Print: width exceed paper width!!!

    Unable to print a page: the width is too large and exceed the page.
    Please fix this problem!!! In OneNote 2016 for Windows it works pretty well (however, same problem in OneNote for Mac).

    It’s been YEARS since this problem exists!!!!!!

  11. Please, Please Continue to Update OneNote for Windows

    Please don't end development and new versions of OneNote for Windows. I have a huge amount of content in OneNote and the web version is just so hard to access and SO much slower to laod large amounts of content as not local - not to mention that it lacks all of Desktop functionality.
    This is a VERY SERIOUS STRATEGIC MISTAKE FOR MICROSOFT. You have the best note taking app that works both with or without your office suite and you want to pull the MUCH MUCH faster and better desktop interface from all of your Office users and also…

  12. Enable 'Speak' via Quick Access Toolbar

    'Speak' is available on all other Microsoft Products. This is also Microsoft's best TTS (Text to Speech) solution. The "Immersive Reader" is not a viable solution as you cannot select the text you wish to have spoken aloud.

    I use OneNote 2016 to draft all communications and used the 'Speak' feature to read them aloud to ensure accuracy. Please re-enable the quick-access toolbar and allow the 'speak' function to be utilized in OneNote.

  13. Please offer Page Clipping and printable area outlines as an option

    Many of us want to be able to have the ability to print our pages, even if we don't very often. OneNote currently doesn't handle printing all that well. If the page contents extend beyond the edge of the page, sometimes the page is shrunk dynamically, other times the page is shifted, and at other times the page is tiled when printed.

    It would be wonderful if you could add a "page clipping" option that would print each page exactly as it looks on the screen and simply clips off anything that happens to spill off the page.

    That way,…

  14. Embed a calendar

    Would there be a way to embed an Outlook calendar into OneNote? The purpose of the calendar would be for teachers to be able to update it with assignments so students can see current classwork.

  15. Allow Searching ONLY for text in quotes and highlight ALL Results!

    In search for text most systems allow the user to put text in quotes that they want exact and complete matches for, but this doesn't work in OneNote and it returns all matches of ANY of the words in quotes. Also, the yellow highlighting of results on pages usually doesn't work (maybe if you have a lot of pages?) so it just shows the page a match is on, but not where on the page!

  16. Open OneNote on the section and page I was last editing

    Each time I open OneNote, it has forgotten which section I was last using. It always opens at the first section, making it necessary to manually select the correct section. This is inconsistent behavior, because OneNote does remember the *page* you were last editing within each section!

    Please can you reinstate the functionality of previous OneNote versions, where it always opened at exactly the section and page you were last editing.

  17. Love Full Dark Mode, remove gray highlight

    Make it just like the Dark Mode in Outlook; white text on a dark gray background. In OneNote 2016, its almost like there is text color, a highlight, and a background color, giving my text this strange aura. I like the look much better in Outlook.

  19. User Defined Layout Preferences

    Please allow user to define layout in preferences. I would like to move sections/tabs to left side, others like across the top. Many software applications allow customization to the nth degree. See Oracle SQL Developer for inspiration.

  20. Create title of note while recording audio note from android widget

    On the one note android app I can set a widget for making audio notes. I'd like to be able to title the new note that is created as a part of the process of taking the note.
