  2. note containers appear randomly

    Stop the note containers from appearing randomly on the page. I'll go to click on the screen to add a note container for a school assignment and it will scroll me down and put it over on the next page or even the page after, and if it does go on the same page it still goes on the very bottom. I'd love to either see this fixed or for a new method of creation to be implemented like dragging to create a box after clicking a "create box" option in the toolbar at the top of the screen, or…

  3. Download or Export Notebooks/Sections/Pages

    I've been using a work account for research notes and now need them in my personal OneNote - but can't!

    Please let us download notebooks from OneDrive to create backups, or copies that can copied.

    I discovered that I can't even copy pages or sections from OneNote (work) to OneNote Online (personal).

    We can't always work in the same account.

  4. 원노트 pdf 내보내기 기능 제발 만들어주세요.

    이번에 원노트 앱을 사용하게 되었는데 (windows10에 기본으로 깔려있습니다) 전에 있었던 pdf 내보내기 기능이 없어서 정말로 불편합니다.
    onenote app에도 이 기능을 업데이트하면 더 많은 사람들이 onenote를 편하게 사용하고 사용자 또한 늘어날 수 있을 것 같습니다!
    제발 만들어주세요..
    감사합니다!

  5. OneNote 2016 good but needed more, to move to a more restricted Windows 10 with less features has been a retrograde step

    I use OneNote for many applications, an important one is to develop and keep electronic laboratory notebooks (ELNs) for my research group at University. Since the onset when I started using OneNote I saw its potential and decided to harness its power, which indeed has increased over the years. There are several features in the 2016 version that would need to be implemented to make it an extraordinary tool for ELNs or other applications. Instead Microsoft has moved into a Windows 10 experience, effectively a simplistic or more immature form that requires my team and myself to go back and…

  6. Text direction in tables

    Can we please have the ability to change the direction of text in table cells? Whenever I copy and paste something from word with the text in a different direction, onenote can't handle it and puts it horizontal again. I don't want to have to paste a word document as a PDF, I want a table to be easily edited as table cells.

  7. OneNote Pro 2013 search works for a word, or a 'word in single quotes', but "fails for a word in double quotes".

    OneNote Pro 2013 search works for a word, or a word in 'single quotes', but fails for a word in "double quotes". Please fix.

  8. Linking to specific PDF pages and destinations with a screenshot

    I often have to refer to books and Tables in pdf documents. It would be amazing to link from onenote to a specific page and it would be even better if you could take a screenshot of a section in a pdf, embed it into onenote and link that screenshot back to the section in the pdf where the screenshot was taken so you can understand The excerpts or screenshots context.

    I know that you can work around that by printing the pdf somewhere into onenote and linking to the individual page. This doesn't show an excerpt, is tedious and…

  10. Onenote .pdf upload and directly linking to page in pdf

    If a PDF is uploaded to onenote (Onenote uploads folder), it must also be possible to navigate directly to a specific page in the pdf in addition to navigating to the pdf only (by clicking on the pdf link in onenote).

  12. Improvements to cloud attachments/embedded files

    Some suggestions to improve this feature:

    1. If I embed a file that is already in OneDrive or Sharepoint, OneNote should detect that and embed the original file instead of creating a new copy and uploading it somewhere else inside OneDrive

    2. OneNote should allow you to edit embedded Word/Excel files directly from the preview (at least do basic edits)

    3. OneNote should index the text from embedded Word documents, so when you do a global search, you can find text located in those files as well

    Hope that helps!
    Ángel.-

  13. Add pen sets

    I understand that the ON team wants to keep the UI minimalist, so they've limited the maximum number pen slots to 15.

    However, this simply isn't enough to capture all inking contexts (eg. different page colors, technical vs. notetaking vs. doodling, etc).

    The solution, I think, is to offer "pen sets".

    Create a drop down menu on the pen toolbar to allow switching the current pen loadout between user-customizable pen sets. This would allow us to quickly access different color themes ("pastel", "dark", "rainbow", etc.) and different pen types/thicknesses ("pencils", "inks", "thick/thin").

    Thanks!

  14. Web Clipper

    I'm loving the new web clipper though it's only showing my WORK notebooks. It would be great if it would show both WORK AND PERSONAL notebooks.

  15. Bigger contrast between normal and highlighted text in dark mode

    When using OneNote in dark mode, it is not easy to see selected text. The difference between selected and normal text should be bigger. I copy and paste often from OneNote and often miss that first or last character.

  16. OneNote (app) For Windows 10 is brutally bad

    1. The simplified ribbon just ****** me off having to use this. I like having all of my buttons all in one easy shot. I don't like having to hunt and peck. 2. I want my tabs at the top and the right-hand panel for the different pages. All this left-hand rubbish...I'm trying to figure out a productive, helpful way of saying 'the app sucks,' when really, all I want to say is "this garbage sucks!" 3. I honestly don't understand why the 2016 full-on OneNote lost support. It's far more superior than this cheap plastic toy that pretends to…

  17. Large union operator not displayed right in equations

    In the Equation Editor, the large union operator is displayed to the right of its argument and limits in both OneNote 2016 and OneNote for Windows 10. It is displayed fine in Word. Please fix it.

  18. Lock the ruler in place on OneNote

    When using the ruler on OneNote, when zooming in/out the ruler moves its position. A way to lock the ruler in a position would be really useful.

  19. Kill OneNote (Windows Store App) in favor of OneNote (Desktop App)

    I don't think that the OneNote (Windows Store App) will match the OneNote (Desktop App) with the current UWP limitations.

    So kill it and go back to the Desktop App.
