  2. Change the default list type

    Would be nice if one could set a different bullet list type as standard (eg arrows) instead of the standard round one

  3. OneNote的OCR功能

    我最喜欢OneNote的OCR功能,远超很多所谓的专业OCR。但还是有一些小问题。之前不知向哪儿反馈,这次趁机反馈了。
    一、字与字直接的空格是怎么回事?
    二、希望你们能把繁简字分开,一篇文章多数是简体字的时候,就不要老是识别为繁体字了,同理,多数是繁体字的时候,简体字出现的优先级也要调低;
    三、英文斜体字识别很差,几乎无法识别(也许是因为多数文本都是简体汉字);
    四、经常吞字,最常吞的是“一”,我觉得吞字不要紧,但至少那边留一个小符号提示我们一下吧?
    五、经常吞标点,同上,留一个统一的“吞字符”下来,作为提示;
    六、连续数字超过2个的时候就会吞数字;
    七、省略号总是识别有问题;
    八、前引号没问题,后引号总出现问题(80%的情况后引号是识别成英文的);
    九、“儿”字总识别失败,会裂开;
    十、“但”字也会裂;
    十一、“人”、“入”总是识别不清,这类相近字应该更仔细地识别。

  4. Ability to upload Pictures and decide what size shall have

    It should be possible to upload pictures in a higher quality if needed. Charts with text can't be read after they were uploaded and resized.

  5. Insert Monthly/Yearly Calendar without need for plugin

    It seems that creating a calendar should be core functionality of OneNote, but at least the desktop version can accomplish it with plugins. The Metro version is just out of luck when it comes to calendars.

  6. Audio/Video to text conversion

    We can search audio, but we cannot convert audio to text. This may be messy, but give us a chance. Cortana and my WP are excellent at translating. OneNote could use this feature.

  8. Allow anchored boxes

    As it is now, a lot of editing parts of a page such as a spreadsheet can actually start to grow and encroach/overlay with other content. I think there needs to be an anchor click on a corner for example to prevent the content boxes from overlapping and maintaining their distance. Try editing a spreadsheet, adding a sheet, and then save. It grows, and if you have pictures or anything else that was close, it will be a mess now.

  10. Diary/Journal mode

    It would be nice if there was a mode/template that was tailored around diary/journal writing.

    - There could be an option for the interface to resemble an actual diary if the user prefers this

    - You could provide tools to create that personal scrapbook effect e.g frames for pics, cutouts, various paper textures, paperclips etc.

    - When opening up a notebook created with this mode/template a new page would automatically be generated with today's date, ready for a new entry while still keeping inline with the theme/interface style the user had previously chosen.

    - It would also be great if…

  11. Make the Mini Toolbar Customizable

    The Mini Toolbar is extremely useful. I love the ability to have it pop up as soon as I highlight something (with cursor, not inking). My problem is I only use a few of the tools that show up in there. I would love to be able to customize this toolbar just like you can customize the Quick Access Toolbar.

  12. Add a Home Button/Link

    The recently used list on WP* works almost all the time UNLESS you have lots and lots of notebooks like I do and want to add a note to a specific section in another notebook in which class I have to click the breadcrumb nav over and over at the top of the screen. A home button that instantly takes me to my notebook list would save a ton of time (the breadcrumb is a hard control to activate as well.)

  13. create notes based on location or time

    an example if you activate location on the app, and you registered before some university or school the app could on each run determinates if the location is the same and open a kind of "student notepad" or something like that.

  14. Better Printing

    Pages don't align for printing and sometimes cuts off sentences. Wrap to page, or at least have a ruler / grid that shows where the printing page cuts off

  15. Include the possibility to add comments to a text, similar to the way it's done in Word

    Possibly add comments, or notes based on part of the text (or image) on a page. Similar to the Word comments used for review.

  16. Bullet proof synchronization between devices

    I need reliable, immediate, synchronization. Please make synchronization as bulletproof across devices as Evernote. OneNote is totally superior for taking notes and keeping reference information - I have used it since its inception.

  17. Clip to onenote in metro

    We should be able to clip a section of the screen to OneNote in metro without going to desktop. Currently the only options are taking a full screenshot or using ModerMix to run metro apps in desktop so as to us the clip to OneNote function. Both are less than perfect.

  19. Drag & Drop Images Directly Into One Note

    Hold down the left mouse click and drag the image over to the one note and drop it to have the image automatically appear in notes. Give an option to include the link or make the image a hyperlink to the original. At the least allow drag and drop of images, where I can plop some ideas and make my own ideas board or notebook.

  20. automatic date / title entry option when starting up a new note off of the surface pro 3

    Ability to tell one note to automatically insert a date into the new note, and then when turning one note off (stopping taking the current note - powering off, changing out of one note etc) a prompt to ask you if you want to keep the note / what you want to do with it - ie - mail to, store in specific notebook, delete, etc.
