  2. Add new features not deleting them

    The only advantage of the UWP is the speed (only useful when reading with a pad, not for heavy users) which can easily be scarified for functionalities (equation editing is fatal) and the volume of material liberties (tag, numbering, etc.). If the UWP version support inserting code block, I will consider using it alongside the desktop version. But, sadly, nothing stands out for the UWP version. I already think that the desktop version lacks features that other note apps have. Reducing features is simply ridiculous. Furthermore, beside code blocks I mentioned above, since the UWP version supports plotting, why not…

  3. Save options and apply them accross computers/devices for my account

    I use Onenote on 5 different PCs, and also on Android, Mac, and IOs.

    Each time I change an option, I have to do it on all PCs and devices.

    For example, I like the pages tab to be on the left. When I enable that option, I would like it to be applied on all PCs and devices for that account.

  4. Support for embedding tweets

    When I paste the URL of a tweet in one of my notes, OneNote should show the full tweet, and make its content searcheable.

  5. Search: jump to first result with 1x enter, not 2x enter

    In OneNote 2016, you can search for a keyword and jump to the page like this:
    1. Ctrl+E
    2. <keyword>
    3. Enter

    In OneNote for Windows 10, one has to type enter twice which is really annoying:


    1. Ctrl+E

    2. <keyword>

    3. Enter (jumps to the first result in the search results)

    4. Enter again (jumps to the actual page)

    Since I almost exclusively use search for navigation, this extra keystroke is really annoying.

    Also, the OneNote 2016 search result view is much easier to scan with ones eyes, because the hit is on the left and the notebook and page names are on…

  8. Started onenote on a mac and cannot access quick notes

    I started OneNote on a Mac, and I no longer have that computer. When I went to start using OneNote on a windows device, I am locked out of the quicknotes, with a message that says "This section is not available yet. It was added from another device. It will become available when that device syncs". Frustrating, since that will not happen.

  10. Text recognition

    Fix text recognition of pictures - it works at random, sometimes recognising a picture (i.e. picture menu appears on the context menu), but ignoring that it has text

  11. Figma live embedding in OneNote

    Like confluence does, it would be nice to allow Onenote to embed Figma files. This would allow the scrum teams to have one source of truth thanks to OneNote.

  12. disable dot in One note 2016

    please consider providing an option to remove the little dot that moves around with the pen in OneNote 2016. I have been using OneNote Windows 10 version which doesn't have this thankfully but have had to move back to the office 2016 version due to very limited functionality of the Windows 10 version.

  13. ❗ Search emoji not working in app version

    I use emoji instead of Tags to mark items until Tags get fully implemented to the UWP version. I have used them to search before and it worked fine. Now if I search for an emoji, it may highlight them on the current page, but it says "No results found" if I am searching in the current section or notebook when I know for a fact there are multiple instances on multiple pages. It works ok on the Desktop version.

  14. Audio play button similar to powerpoint for OneNote

    I am using onenote for learning languages and I would like to insert audio file inline to the text that looks like a speaker icon similar to the one in powerpoint. Also being able to resize the icon will be great.

  18. Sub-bullet Grouping Functionality

    Allow sub-bullets to be hidden under a master bullet via a carrot or similar.

    e.g.

    Open
    >Master Bullet

     - sub-bullet 1
    
    - sub-bullet 2
    - sub-bullet 3

    Hidden
