  2. Searching for Japanese character is unreliable

    Bug: When searching for Japanese text in "search all notebooks", the results are frequently inaccurate.

    Using OneNote 2013 on Windows 10, I have a single notebook that I use the Microsoft IME to input Japanese characters (such as 作). If I do a "search on page" it works just fine.

    But if I search all notebooks for a character, it may or may not work. The ”On Page" portion of the results may contain zero entries, despite me being able to find the character if I manually navigate to a page and do a CTRL+F. It may also contain incorrect entries,…

  3. Pinterestesque mood board pages

    A page that would act as a mood board in a pinterestesque fashion i.e. images can be harvested, captions added etc. to a page which is organised automatically in chronological (or other) order in a 'grid' without having to manually resize the pictures.

  4. Get info from a QR code directly to a note

    QR code may be a link, contact info, small text, track tags, Wifi network parameters, etc. Sometimes, in events, presentations or even searching a new apartment we found a lot of them, and I use camera function of Quick Notes to save them, but this is not very usefull. Afterwards, at PC or Smartphone, I have to search a app to read photos and translate the code. Would be awesome to get the info directly on the Onenote, like Bing search on Windows Phone!

  5. Notebook Groups like Section Groups

    In all versions of OneNote, allow us to group Notebooks the way we can group sections. Right now, if you click on the Notebooks pane, you see a big long list of your notebooks. I have college notebooks, personal notebooks and work notebooks. I'd like see those groups when I first open that explorer pane. So, it would have College, Personal, Work listed. If I click one, it drops down and shows me the notebooks I have chosen to keep in that group.

  7. Panning with Mousewheel down

    In many Programms you can pan your workspace in all direction just by holding the 3 Button pressed (Mousewheel) on your mouse and moving it. This would be a good addition to OneNote.

  11. Filtrar notas

    Preciso ver apenas e todas as notas do meu "bloco nº 3", ordenadas como as "notas recentes", por ordem de data de última edição.

    O mesmo para as secções: preciso de ver todas as notas da secção "formação" ordenadas por data de última edição.

  16. Allow tagging of a single word (or choice of words)

    Allow tagging of a single word (or choice of words). For instance as a med student I often only want to tag single key words or vocab words in my notes. It is VERY FRUSTRATING that I cannot do this! Ideally I would love for there to be a way to tag single vocab words (with a keyboard short cut!!) so I could make all my vocab words in my notes one color and have them as tags to look up quickly too.

    I have so many keywords in my notes (as I'm sure many other students do too) that…

  17. Ability to add border to text boxes (and fill) & Ability to add thumbnails of images which expand

    I write in the nice, flexible text boxes, then want a border to distinguish this from other boxes but i have to draw a rectangle but then i always have to adjust the rectangle to the text box when expanding and shifting.
    &
    When I add large images with text, I want a thumbnail that quickly expands on click
    If i make it big enough to read it takes up the whole screen and ruins my layout
    This would be great generally if sections such as image or table or drawing could be shrunk into a thumbnail and grow quickly …
