  1. Scan & insert

    I don't like the online version at all and already own 2016. The 2013 version had a scan/insert feature. Can we at least have that back?

  2. Dark mode checkboxes are difficult to read

    I really LOVE the dark mode, but I wish it handled tickboxes better.

    Because the inside of the tickbox is white (rather than transparent) its brightness makes it difficult to see the rather slender red tick inside on a first glance.

  3. Add extensions in OneNote UWP

    I suggest open api should be open for user in OneNote UWP, it help us to use OneNote on the function which we want but haven't itself.

  5. tags

    The Windows 10 One Note took away many tag functions. Please bring them back.

    Previously I could filter by all tags, and even create a summary page with items sorted by tags. Also, I could create custom tags that operated using a Ctrl+ function. I lost all of these when we upgraded from 2016. In your effort to simplify the product, you have made it almost ineffective for professional use.

  6. To-Do sort

    There needs to be a way to sort items with the to-do check box as checked or unchecked. I use this a teacher and have students complete self reflections. It would be nice if I could sort the different level of comfort with a topic by the box they checked.

  7. just like notepad++ , onenote should also highlight all versions of a word

    for example , if i highlight the word "truck" , it should highlight all the "truck" words. it is very easy to sort together similar points by this way

  8. Improve KFM (Known Folder Move) and OneDrive to be automatic

    Improve Known Folder Move and OneDrive to account for long file names (esp. Excel) and OneNote notebooks that need to be converted programmatically vs. the end user having to deal with it.

    Enterprises that have been using OneNote generally have a mix of the older style .one files that haven't been converted to online (url). KFM just dies when it sees that. Same for long file names.

  9. show shortcut while hovering

    Show the shortcut while hovering over the icon in the menu, so you can learn the shortcut, you actually use frequently without reading long shortcut manuals.

  10. Please add an option to crop images as they are pasted in notes.

    Please add the ability to crop an image as it is pasted. Right now the only image manipulation is resizing.

  11. Single click to style the whole page

    In current version, when copy and paste a text from a site, OneNote will paste the format as well. Especially I think auto making header is good.
    But in the end when copy from many resources, there are too many styles in one page. Sometimes it is hard to style to the desired text format (even clicking the Style doesn't change to the appearance as shown, like Normal style doesn't apply the font size as shown in icon).

    I hope there is one way to standardize the styles by one click. For example, Style all the Header to the same…

  13. Consider making OneNote 2016 open source

    Seeing as it has been made clear that MS is only focusing on the UWP version of OneNote and user requests aren't being acknowledged, is there any possibility of open sourcing OneNote 2016 so the new features can be implemented by the community.

  15. Selecting a specific Hex value for drawing colour (iPad)

    Is there any way that I'm not aware to specify the exact Hex value of the colour you want to use as your pen drawing colour? Clicking more ink colours only lets you slide around on the typical colour square, but nowhere to enter specific Hex values

  17. 원노트에서 이미 삭제한 전자필기장은 "열려는 전자 필기장" 리스트에서 노출되지 않도록 변경해주세요.

    전자 필기장 더보기를 누르면 이미 삭제했던 전자 필기장이 여전히 남아있는 것 처럼 보입니다.

    기 삭제한 전자 필기장은 노출되지 않도록 변경 부탁드립니다.

  18. Page Templates availability in OneNote web version

    Page Templates appears beautiful on the pages rather than the default, boring page. However on OneNote web version, this feature is not provided. For me it is a great enabler to switch to web version; because of its unavailability i stayed back to Desktop version of the App.

    The templates collection may be provided through Add-Ins. Think about it!

    I love Outlook web mail app, teams app - OneNote NOPE!

    Please support.

  20. Redact information in View Only sharing access

    In pages and sections shared with "View Only" access, we should have the option for links with redacted views, e.g., we share meeting notes with some colleagues for their information, but redact information restricted to management.
