  1. OneNote as a second brain

    To have a real "neuronal linking" capacity between different piece of information in OneNote, I suggest it to copy the functionnality of Notion that allows an INFINITE LINKING of page inside page and text inside text. I mean THE GOAL OF ONENOTE ISN'T TO BE A TWIN OF THE FILE EXPLORER, that's what makes its organizationnal scheme pretty useless now comparing to Notion.

  2. Editing and saving files from mobile to OneNote

    Right now mobile only allows possibility of saving the file to the device and back to OneNote. Otherwise it is read only. It would be great if it could save from mobile document directly into OneNote.

  4. Improve math input in dark mode

    This is the input in white mode.
    https://i.imgur.com/00tZDcs.png
    versus dark mode
    https://i.imgur.com/x6NCH59.png
    The problem is, when creating or editing the math input, it has a white background in both modes, which means I can't see inside when in dark mode, since the font is white too.
    Please improve that.

  5. Add an option to auto-name new OneNote pages

    Using freehand drawing and writing, I go through a OneNote page very quickly, and leaving the names of new pages as "Untitled page" or with the same name as the template really bothers me, and stopping the flow of my notes to give a name to every new page also interrupts my thought processes, so a way to auto-name new OneNote pages that a user adds would be very appreciated.

    I'd be happy with names like yyyymmdd001, yyyymmdd002, and so on. So at the time of this post, names can be 20200406001, 20200406002, and so on.…

  6. Make ONE NOTE more like DeliOCR

    (1) Please examine and test a new OCR Program called DeliOCR. (2) It is very good at Recognising Text from JPEG Images.

    (2) I am a Historian. In my work I work with old Typed Documents. The background paper is sometimes light yellow; light green; light blue in colour. I OCR'd the Same documents with BOTH 'DeliOCR' and Windows 2010 'OneNote'. The DeliOCR performed with very few mistakes. But the pages OCR'd by One Note had many, many mistakes. PLEASE EXAMINE DeliOCR and find-out HOW their OCR from Jpeg Images is so much better than One Note.

    (3) Also, PLEASE…

  9. "Automatic" Color for Pens/Pencils

    I like using the dark theme mode for a variety of reasons (battery life, eye comfort, aesthetics), and I vastly prefer taking handwritten notes for my research, as it helps me digest and retain material more effectively. However, I noticed that only the default pen switches colors between the themes - as in, it writes white on the Dark theme, and Black on the Light theme. I usually know this as an "automatic" color in most programs, as the color changes with thematic settings and other document options.

    Please add an "automatic" color that adjusts with the theme, so that…

  10. Allow to view two OneNote pages in one window

    Sometimes I want to prepare view to notes at the same time. E.g. I want to prepare the agenda of the next meeting and go through my notes of the last meeting). This would require a kind of split screen (one half first note page, second half (vertical or horizontal) second note page. That would be very helpful and increase efficientcy

  11. Add Option To Disable Pen Pressure (UWP)

    Please add an option to disable the pen pressure in OneNote UWP. The pen pressure constantly changes the lines you write from thick to thin. This makes my notes look very inconsistent and messy due to the changing pen width.

  12. Add 0.35 Pen Size (UWP APP)

    The 0.5 pen size is just too thick and inconsistent due to the pen pressure changing the lines from thick to thin. While the 0.25 pen size is too thin and hard to see. So please add a 0.35 size, as it would be the perfect size, to OneNote UWP.

  13. Add a page size setting like there was in OneNote 2016

    Page size setting missing - OneNote 2016 allows me to change page size which makes it easy for me to print my notes.

  16. size page

    I would like to set the page size (say A0) before I begin to write, so that I know the boundaries. I know that I can resize in the print, but that would also change the fonts (squeeze or expand), which I would like to avoid. This feature is quite essential, hope it will be implemented soon.

  17. Prevent autocorrect from change "i" to "I" when using a language that has lower case i in it. Norwegian Bokmal, for example.

    Onenote insists on converting every instance of the word "i" be capitalized regardless of language in use. In some languages "i" is not always capitalized.

  18. Linked Pseudo Page - A single page that can be listed in multiple sections and updated

    This is for having one page that is common to more than one section or even notebook.

    In the page list under a section, you could create a Pseudo Page that is actually just a link to a page in another section or notebook.

    However, clicking on the page in the menu does not take you to the remote section or notebook, but rather the page appears as if it is really part of the section.

    An Example:

    In my novel, I have a character who is a Knight and is also a Friend of my main character.

    I have…
