  1. Change the name

    All names starting with "One" or "First" sucks!
    It is not difficult to keep such a name starting with 1 or 1st. Many companies have done this in past in different locations in globe, but all failed? No, but none at least reached to the top. I know at least one company in India which in 1995 it was called "Brilliant's Computer Centre" (located at New Delhi) which changed its name to "First Computers" and went to oblivion quickly. Bad names used to be "proprietary" of Open Source community or Sun/Oracle circles. MS had a strong tradition to choose really…

  4. Auto-numbering option like the MS Project "WBS" feature

    To encourage OneNote adoption, consider an auto-numbering option that can turn numbering on and off like how it is on MS Project's WBS feature. This numbering makes it easier to navigate from a given Notebook->Tab->Page, keeping in mind each Page should have the option of numbering, like how Word has it. It helps create order. Lawyers will love this feature, and I would help it become adopted by legal organizations like the Ontario Paralegal Association, for whom I am a media sponsor.

  5. One click bookmarked notes reorder inside the page

    Hi,

    I often use OneNote to write checklists with priority bookmarks.

    When priority changes (for example from 2 to 1, or I add the critical bookmark) it would be very helpful to have the one click option to reorder all the notes with a specific bookmark together, instead of move them all manually (e.g. all notes with priority 1 together at the top of the page).

    Hope you can consider this function, thank you!

  6. [Default zoom to write] Zoom predeterminado para escribir

    Yo no uso nunca OneNote con teclado, siempre lo hago con mi lápiz Wacom.

    La caligrafía es una función de varios parámetros en donde el más importante es el zoom con el cual se escribe.

    Normalmente escribo al 300% para tener una buena letra.

    Pinchando con los dedos me deja siempre en 300% lo que es perfecto, pero sería muy bueno poder configurarlo.

    Un doble tap sobre la pantalla con los dedos me debería llevar a ese Zoom predeterminado de escritura.

  7. [Floating Toolbars] Barras de herramientas flotantes

    Creo que en OneNote 2007 tenía la posibilidad de tener barras de herramientas flotantes o anclarlas abajo o a los lados de la pantalla.

    Extraño esa funcionalidad pues podía agrupar y colocarlas en el lugar más conveniente, incluso flotando sobre la nota.

    Esto es muy útil cuando trabajo con tablero interactivos como el Epson BrightLink.

  8. Objetos de n caras

    Si puedo agrupar objetos encima de un post-it debería poder voltear el post-it y escribir en su otra cara.

    Me explico.

    En papel un naipe tiene dos caras porque el papel es de dos dimensiones.

    Si tengo un objeto virtual como un naipe, no debo limitarme a dos caras sino puede tener n caras.

    ¿Cuál sería su utilidad?

    Usando OneNote como herramienta de presentación, podría tener una carta con una pregunta y al girarla obtener la respuesta. Si tiene n caras, se convertiría en una forma de ir develando en pasos la respuesta.

    Si además puedo escribir encima e ir…

  9. Book access

    the ability to remove access from a device. ie, i have downloaded a book to a device and no longer have access to that device to remove it. by adding a password i have protected the data but can no longer access it from my other mobile devices and in a way have lost the usability of the book.

  11. japanese

    make keyboard shortcuts to switch back and forth from romaji, katakana and hiragana. Add the option to make big bixes to go around texts. This would make onenote much quicker to use and makes it possible to use in class.

  12. Keep the "Send to Blog" command in future updates; please don't ever remove it.

    Being able to draft notes in OneNote and then automatically send them to Word (in Blog mode) for final editing before publishing is awesome. So rather than suggesting a new feature or idea, I just want to say keep the "Send to Blog" function going. Thanks!

  14. Consistent search results on all platforms

    If you access a cloud folder from different devices, you don't get consistent search results between them. What returns on one platform should be exactly the same on the others. More details here:

  15. Gesture Support for Selecting Commands

    Keyboard Shortcuts don't fit with OneNote if you're using it pen-based, so some kind of stylus-based gesture's would help hard core users. For example: a single short 'tick' mark in the upper right selects a thin pen; two short tick marks selects a thicker pen. Similar gesture in the lower right could switch between pen/highlighter.

    Simplest implementation would be a double-tap gesture to with the pen to open a 'custom commands' window. The window should be free-floating window that opens under the stylus for easy command selection.

  16. One Note on Win 10

    I'm using OneNote on Win 10 (on surface pro 3)

    and the UX has changed to worst
    too mush vertical space were taken (by the ribbon)
    I found the previous ring pallet mush useful then the current ribbon

    I really like to be able to add / define my one color
    I also like to set the size to the stroke

    I can't reorder my notes

    lasso should scroll when rich the edges

  17. Toggle section groups in same screen

    Is it possible to toggle section groups while still being able to see the other sections? Like, simply sliding the contained section tabs open towards the side of the section group, then sliding them back in when you close the group again? Right now, the way it just opens only the containing tabs, it feels like being taken into an entirely different notebook. I recognize that's ideal for some, but I don't want to have to keep clicking back and forth--I just want the ability to minimize a few section tabs I don't use quite as often. Being given the…

  19. Erasing or looping text in the lower half of the screen causes the page to move downwards

    Erasing or looping should only move the screen around the edges and perhaps scale depending on how close you are to the edge.

    The ENTIRE lower HALF of the screen causes a suttle downward page scroll!
