  2. Section management

    Currently, the vertical list of section tabs cannot be alphabetized. I have lots of tabs, and the apparently random way they are arranged currently is not helpful - it takes too long to find the section I want to use. Please add a way to alphabetize sections.

    In addition, while manually alphabetizing I discovered that the section(s) assigned at the top of the list are assigned - again seemingly somewhat randomly - as tabs across the top of my OneNote window. Now I have a list of tabs across the top that I may or may not want easy access…

  3. Export OneNote for Windows 10 pages to MS Word

    Please add back the 2016 feature to export a OneNote page or section to MS Word.

    We use OneNote for note taking and first drafts. However, if/when a note becomes a long term doc that needs publishing, we want to convert to MS Word.

    In OneNote2016, of course, this feature was there. However, on Office365, you can't use online OneNote with desktop 2016 very well. So, we really need the feature added (back) to OneNote for Windows 10..

  4. COPY a OneNote for Windows 10 Page

    I want to COPY a OneNote page or section, so that I can send it to a SharePoint site (that I don't own), or attach it in an email.

    This would allow us to take notes on the desktop OneNote and then post a copy to a SharePoint Doclib if/when we're ready to post to a shared repository.

    We've been using OneNote as our primary documentation tool. It could be any of 100 different SharePoint sites within my company, so I'm not going to "log in on my desktop" to all of those. They're not owned by me, but I…

  5. Show page limit to Infinite canvas

    If you want to mantain your infinite canvas is ok, but please add the possibility to show on the screen the limit of the page that someone select (A4,A3, ecc)
    because now it's impossible to print notes.
    A dashed line on the infinite canvas would be great, so if i want to have infinite space i don't look at it, but if i know that i will print or export as "normal" pdf i would see the dashes and i would know where stop writing and start a new page.
    Thanks

  6. Ability to select entire row and/or all sub-rows (bullet and/or sub-bullets)

    In OneNote 2016 I can hover to left a a row of notes to show a carrot that I can then click on to toggle between selecting entire row and/or all sub-rows (bullets and/or sub-bullets). It actually can be bullets or just indents for sub-sections. Once selected then that row or sub row could be copied, dragged, deleted... PLEASE ADD THIS FEATURE TO ONENOTE APP. Thanks.

  7. Expand and Collapse bullets (sub bullets) in notes on a page (like 2016)

    In OneNote 2016 I can double click on carrot next to a bullet that has sub-bullets in my notes on a page and it will toggle between showing/hiding all sub-bullets. Please add this to the OneNote App. When managing a list/notes on a page that are detailed/lengthy with sub-bullets it is awesome to be able to shrink all items to only the top bullet for a summarized view of my list and then expand items as needed. In 2016 when there are hidden sub-bullets then there is a "+" icon to the left of the row.

  9. When following a link to a page, load the page before trying to open it

    Otherwise, OneNote sees the page is "missing" and goes to another page in the section. The page loads afterwards, but then the user has to open it manually.

  11. 3 improvements for OneNote classroom notebook (from a teacher's perspective!)

    OneNote classroom notebook:
    1) There should be a way to recover deleted pages/section (i.e. it should actually appear in the recycle bin- which it doesn't at the moment)
    2) There should be the option to lock the name and destination of distributed pages so that 'Review Student Work' can find it (if either is changed by the student, the page has to be searched for manually)
    3) There should be an option to distribute sections within existing section groups in student's notebook - so that their work can be better organised.

  12. link one note todo list to the todo application list

    When a todo list with tick box is created in one note it would be great if ita list of one note todo could appear and sync in the todo application as well.

  13. Where is the export feature on the OneNote app?

    OneNote 2016 has an export to .pdf feature. Why doesn't the OneNote app for Windows 10 have this?

  14. Add a feature to change the size of the page and to save our notebook in a folder offline too like in One Note 2016

    At school all of us usually we need to take notes and obviously for study reasons we need to print them. One note store app allows us to print our notes but not in the correct page format making, especially, handwriting hard to read because too small. I tried One Note 2016 and yes it has that feature but it continues to crash making this problem hard to fix for me. Even save notebooks offline in our device because of at school network can be used only by teachers. I hope this feature will be added as soon as possible.

  15. Support Ctrl-X, Ctrl-C and Ctrl-V as other Office apps do

    Every other MS Office program supports Ctrl-X, Ctrl-C and Ctrl-V for cut and paste. Ctrl-V is especially important. Currently doing the same kind of pasting in OneNote takes three mouse clicks.

    This is my highest priority request.

  16. Change Default Page Colour

    Those with reading issues requiring coloured overlays (e.g. Dyslexia, Meers Irlen etc.) constantly have to change the page manually whenever we add a new page. The ability to change the default page colour for all new pages would help with easier and more efficient note-taking in school and university. The ability is there to change the colour of the page anyway, adding a default option would make things a lot easier.

  17. Solid shapes

    There should be solid shapes available for inserting. A filled in rectangle, rounded rectangle and circle should be available for highlighting whole paragraphs, creating a colored background to write on and more.

  18. PLEASE give us the same Word text editing features for basic things like autocorrect, math functions, etc.

    It is infuriating that I cannot take class notes and copy over math equations, or use shortcuts/autocorrect features to quickly type mathematical symbols. I am a biology grad student, and I have to navigate through multiple menus every single time I want to use a delta or micro symbol. This makes taking quick notes impossible. Either make the autocorrect rules we set in Word apply across ALL Office apps, or integrate the Options tab from Word into the rest of these apps. I didn't have this problem with OneNote 2016, but y'all discontinued support and updates for it, leaving us…

  20. default proofing language is still German in OneNote when creating a new page even though all other languages except English deleted

    Please sort this out. I should be able to select what language I want as default and it should work. All defaults are English UK and it still forces German Switzerland which is extremely annoying. I installed the German language pack because I also sometimes work in German but now the German has over run all the English. I have removed German from all proofing options and language options in Office. It should be possible to set a language as default for all new pages. It should also be possible to set the proofing language by selecting a page or…
