  2. View dimensions of a page when using OneNote

    Make a view in OneNote that makes the notebook page look like a piece of paper you write on. Currently, when I write handwritten notes its one long "paper" without a beginning or end to a sheet of "paper". When I print. it often cuts off half of a sentence when it prints from 1 page to another.

  3. Exclude the "In Attendance" Tag from Find Tags feature

    If you are using the Meeting Notes integration with Outlook and To-Do Tag features in OneNote, the Find Tag feature becomes completely useless as it is clogged with names of attendees not present at meetings. For example, if I have a large meeting with 25 attendees and only 12 show up, and meeting of 5 people where only 3 are in attendance, and a meeting with 10 where 5 individuals show up, I now have 20 additional tags that show on the "Show only Unchecked" view in the Find Tags summary page. Simply checking off the names, but that leads…

  4. It would be nice if you could opt to share onenote items on outlook calender so it could be viewed in that format as well

    It would be nice if you could opt to share onenote items on outlook calender so it could be viewed in that format as well. So if I speak into my phone a calender / appointment it would go to the outlook calender if I opt for that or am I missing something

  6. Show Recent notes on default Live Tile

    In addition to all ideas asking for you to display the page content when the page gets pinned to the start screen, I'd like to see a list of my recent notes when the OneNote app itself gets pinned.

    The reason is that some times, just by looking at the title of a note, I can remember what I have to do. I could create multiple lists of things to buy, one list (page) for each place I have to go.

    If you display my recent notes to the live tile, it gets easier for me to remember of every…

  9. An "As At (AutoDate)" Tag would be useful for project lists in OneNote

    It would be useful to add to the list of "Tags" one that means "As At (autodate)" For example by selecting it from the list today, a bullet point starts with the words "As at 3 August 2015, .....". This would be handy for user compiled To Do lists and status lists where a date stamp is desirable to record a project status at a point in time. That date stamp need only be stamped as text and is editable too once inserted.

  11. Have a Way to Reset Password

    There needs to be a way to reset or remind users of what their password is. Permanently being locked out because you can't remember/find your password isn't user friendly.

  12. Image Formatting and Properties

    There should be more options to format images AND there should be a sidebar that displays the image's properties (like there is in OneDrive).

  13. choose a page for audio notes to automatically go to instead of each audio note creating a new page

    I use a page as an inbox and I would want to be able to send a 2 second audio note I make in the car to that inbox page instead of having it create a whole new page for just that one note

  14. Add page counts to sections and groups

    Allow users to display a page count next to Sections and Section Groups similar outlook. This would let you choose between showing the total count, unread count or both (total / unread).

  15. Hotkey to send text to OneNote

    A Win+ hotkey to send selected text from any app to the next line below the current OneNote.
    "Send to onenote" is not very usable when you just want to continuously select and send snippets of text while working in a word doc

  16. Dragon NaturallySpeaking - allow integration

    Dragon Naturally Speaking (#1 speech recognition app) does not work as well with OneNote as it does with Word. I presume OneNote does not allow this add-in to access (know) the preceding text, and thus the add-in doesn't have context that it can use for guessing what was said.

  17. Optimize for students use with gestures

    Please optimize OneNote for students use. I'm printing my PDF's of my lectures to OneNote on my Surface Pro 3.
    So I have all my lectures always in OneDrive and can edit them with my Surface pen wherever I'am.

    But for a smarter user experience OneNote needs some new view options like Microsofts PDF Reader app. That shows you all pages if you pinch to zoom out. You could add for example a new gesture to open this view mode (for example swiping down with thre fingers).
    And there should be an option to switch to another page with an…

  19. PLEASE disable the horizontal sidebar or allow me to. Every time I maximize one note the page centers and I have to scroll left.

    I love onenote but I get very frustrated everytime I maximize the application. It centers the page even if there is NOTHING to the right on the active page. I am left staring at white space and have to scroll left. I think this is directly related to other pages in the notebook that have bigger width. But im not sure. PLEASE fix this it is very frustrating. I dont even want to go horizontal at all

  20. Add support for javascript

    It would be great if you could add some scripting to OneNote. Maybe a subset of javascript? I understand that scripting can be dangerous, but being able to use some elements (table cells) or check boxes, or maybe a special variable element would be very useful for things like D&D character sheets.
