  1. Where's the monthly updates mentioned at MS Ignite

    Every day Mail and Calendar are updated. We've been sitting with 16001.11001.20079.0 since 1 Nov 2018 - the version that broke the universal 'Undo' function and threw it into random menus, where its pretty useless most of the time.
    I really don't think Microsoft respects our views with this product.
    We were promised monthly updates. Seems they give the work to an Intern who's moving on anyway, so why care.

  2. On the Default Syncing presently causing frequent Crashes...

    Lots of time, Onenote crashes from attempting to auto-sync - and leaves an error message that says so.
    >Make Notes Syncing Not-Automatic, Not Default, or if you choose to make it default, or provide a way for users to DISABLE SYNCING of entire notebook by sections, if one chooses to - so that they can manually enable it.

  3. Needed: Stability, Faster Loading and Auto-Upgrade all Sections

    -OneNote for desktop has for sometime been slow to load and crashes frequently, Please make it fast and stable.
    -FORMAT UPGRADE - make this stable, and automatic mass upgrade. I am experiencing difficulty when I click (popup) to upgrade to Windows 2010 FORMAT from the older Windows 2007.

    - Please do not kill Onenote for Windows, as most of me and my colleagues have all out work notes and contents there, as I'm sure most other people do. >>We also use the Online version, and love both versions. BUT that cannot replace what we use the desktop version for.

  4. Lock a memo to prevent accidental write or erase

    Lock a memo to prevent accidental write or erase

    It is possible to block a note, but still be able to use it? To be able to select text, format, but NOT eliminate by accident?

    need that option and I think it's an option to copy notes without endangering the information

    Thanks!

  7. Reading view button in webversion

    This is applicable on OneNote in the online version:
    Via menu View\Reading View the ribbon disappears. There is no button to return to the original view.
    To Do: add a button in the Reading View to return to the Normal View.

  9. Pen Choices in OneNote drawing

    Heavy users of OneNote drawing tools might agree with me, when I open a page where I had particular pens/colors selected for the reopened page to add or edit it, when I reopen it, wouldn't it be slick if I could see those choices first so... my idea is - Add a side or standout menu for that page with the tools or pens or color combos I used on that page, or at least in that notebook section. This may be similar to other features of office software remembering and displaying unique setup and selection of options.

    With so…

  10. Page deletion confirmation

    Please create a "deletion confirmation" for pages that way people don't accidentally delete pages. This should not be a "one-touch" function.

  11. User control of Link to Source position

    The user should be able to set the default position of the Link to Source at at start or end of copied note. At present the link appears at the end and there seems to be no way of changing it.

  12. OneNote should support External GPU (eGPU) surprise removal.

    neNote does not support external GPU (eGPU - external Graphics) scenario, which is becoming more and more common with Intel Thunderbolt capable laptops and eGPU enclosures.

    I'm using my Lenovo Thinkpad laptop with 19H1, connected to a Razer eGPU that has an NVidia GEForce 1070, supporting two external displays. In RS4, we added new API support allowing apps to select a preference or which GPU to use, and in RS5 we now support a "safe remove" experience.

    ASK:
    - OneNote should be made resilient to eGPU removal. The Graphics team published a sample illustrating how to do this: https://github.com/Microsoft/DirectX-Graphics-Samples/tree/develop/Samples/Desktop/D3D12xGPU

  15. grammar

    I can't believe that you took this functionality, the ability to check our grammar right in the program, away in the newer version of OneNote.. right now as I am typing the free version of Grammarly is checking for my grammar mistakes. But to check my grammar which OneNote 2016 used to do I have to copy/paste literally hundreds of pages into another program to do a grammar check. That is crazy in this day and age. It makes me feel like you want people to purchase Grammarly when you take such important functionality away.

  16. Ditch the microsoft account login to use OneNote

    Don't require a logon to use Onenote, the logon "feature' is cumbersome at best for those that share a computer.

  19. Print Site groups in Windows 10 App

    Currently it is not possible to print a Site Group. In OneNote 2016 this is possible.

  20. Blank page

    (ru=>en) It's not so easy to check whether page is really empty. It also happens that the block itself disappears somewhere far beyond the edge of the screen. I suggest to automatically name blank pages "Blank page" with translucent font, instead of "Untitled page". Anyway, non-empty pages get other names, even if the title is still not there...
