  1. Text to handwriting

    Make an option to make text to handwritten by giving an option for writing a letter for a letter, then we make this possible.

      Hello Uthaya,

      Thank you for posting on our forums.

      The feature you are requesting could be achieved by installing a font that illustrates your handwriting.

      You can use a third party or OS tool to create the font of your choice and install it in your system. Once you do that, OneNote will be able to use that font on that system.

      Since this is out of our scope, I’m closing this post.

      Thank you for your feedback and helping us make OneNote better for everyone.

    • Windows: Mindmap functionality

      I like to organise my ideas in a Mindmap then add some meat to the bones in OneNote. Adding mindmap functionality would make it a one stop shop for me. Todo lists, project plans etc can all be drafted up in one place.

      • Bring back the radial fly out menu in the W10 Store version of OneNote

        On Win 8.1, Windows Store OneNote featured a radial menu allowing easy access to line colors but also thickness. This menu was removed and subsequently the ability to change line thicknesses was removed _completely_ which is a huge regression un OneNote functionality. Thicker lines allow for a nicer writing experience on the screen of Surface 3...

        • Move Pen Radial Menu with Touch or Pen

          It would be very convenient to be able to move the radial menu around using the Pro Pen or with touch. It is in the way when writing and being able to move it would be helpful for filling out a page.

          • add the ability to move radius menu to left hand side of screen for lefties in OneNote Metro

            It would be convenient to ne able to have the radius menu on the left side being a left handed person so I wouldn't have to reach all the way across the screen to change my current pen.

            • [Integrate the radial menu in the desktop version] Intégrer le menu circulaire dans la version bureau

              L'application OneNote MX est excellente quand on l'utilise sur Surface Pro. Mais l'application bureau est plus riche mais peu pratique quand il s'agit d'utiliser le stylet.
              L'idéal serait d'optimiser l'utilisation du stylet dans la version bureau.

              • Heading formatting for the Radial Menu

                When I format text, I make use of Headings to clearly define what I'm writing about on a OneNote page. I can then use Copy link to Paragraph, creating a link to the heading.

                Can you add Heading formatting to the Radial Menu?
