  1. Audio volume indicator when recording

    When recording, would be nice to see visual confirmation that the mic is picking up sound (and not accidentally muted). Similar to how OneNote for Mac does it:

  2. Provide OneNote badge for Windows users sharing a notebook so it's easy to notice edits or additions from others

    AFAIK, you have to manually open OneNote to check to see if others sharing a notebook have made additions or edits. If OneNote showed a badge on the icon you could easily see that you need to check your shared notebook for changes.

  3. Swap OneNote versions.

    Swap versions. Make the online version the Windows 10 version and viceversa. Online version has more features than the installed one.

  4. Can screen clipping of OneNote 2016 be started with command line?

    Several months ago, when I was using Office 2013, the command line
    OnenoteM.exe /screenclip
    would start the screen cilpping and send to OneNote. But after upgrading to Office 2016, this command no longer works! Is there a new command taking this place?

  5. Better text recognition from images (OCR)

    OneNote have problems with OCR for mixed content in one image. If one part is English and other in Czech, OCR does not work well.

    Also OCR with all new systems fotns on Windows 10 is bad. Segoe UI, or differents Cambria/Calibri are not recognized well for language content.

  7. Show image snippets in note title

    ive been using the windows store version of onenote every since i started a few years ago, and now that the desktop version of onenote can be installed on windows im trying it out the last few days but the note titles are really hard to follow without showing a small image from within the note

    half the time i don't even bother giving notes proper names but i can still quickly tell which is which by the images inside when using the windows store app.

    the desktop version seems like its miles ahead of the windows store version in…

  9. Move multiple sections at once.

    There is no way to select multiple sections and thus no bulk way to move multiple sections from one notebook to another.

  11. Allow Microphone and Master Volume to be recorded simultaneously

    By allowing the master volume and microphone to be recorded at the same time I am able to record both sections of a Skype call instead of only being able to record either myself or the person on the other end.

  12. Complete MSOffice/O365 integration

    It's currently possible to place an office file or printout on a OneNote page. Take it one step further.

    Part One: Make it possible for an Office document to BE the page. The page tab would be the file name, and the ribbon bar could change to the appropriate ribbon bar for the type of document.

    Part 2: allow a page to be a web site (EDGE or IE site) that would update from the web as you open or refresh the page. This would basically replace any need for 'bookmarks' and better

    Part 3: Outlook integration. Allow a notebook…

  13. Conditional Formatting

    Add some simple conditional formatting that allows you to set text formatting based on the state of the adjacent tickbox.
    I.e. when ticked, text is struck-through or greyed out etc.

  15. Add custom shape recognition to allow users to define new shapes that could be converted automatically to neater versions.

    Allowing users to define their own custom shapes for recognition by the Ink Shape Recognition feature would enable people to build a library of shapes they use often to speed up the creation of formal sketches.
    for example UML shapes for quick use case / class diagram creation.
    But this would work for any specialism and formal diagramming.
    Perhaps people could share the libraries they have built (eventually).

  16. Hover over section groups to see sections within

    Would allow the ability to easily scan through section groups without having to enter the section group.

  17. Microsoft Band support - displaying pages and to-do lists on the band

    Please could we get the option to display pages from a Notebook on the Band. There is an unofficial app that lets you display text entered on the band, however I use Onenote for organizing things like shopping lists, to-do lists and activity plans. It would be useful to glance at these on my wrist rather than pulling my phone out.
