Please, fix the proofing language bug.
You can't set the proofing language, somehow Onenote automatically uses the display language. Very frustrating when editing or taking notes in a different language. It baffles me why this is not fixed.
We are pleased to let you know that this was completed as part of the May 2017 update to OneNote for Windows 10.
You should now be able to select some text, right click it and set the proofing language.
For more details on how to use this feature, please reference the following article:
Thank you for all your comments and feedback in helping us make OneNote better for everyone to use.

This is NOT fixed, please get this done for Onenote for Office 365!
This is an extremely annoying time thief. I have tried all manner of trying to get ONE language to stick to OneNote, but it just keeps jumping back to another language.
still an issue, pls. FIX a.s.a.p.
Peter, you can manually set the proofing language in the "set proofing language" setting and it will work for a while, but this doesn't stick in my experience and OneNote will frequently revert back to the Windows language (happens on every new box, after deleting a row of cells in a table etc.) making one waste a lot of time reapplying the preferred proofing language, so it's not a proper fix. OneNote ignoring the preferred authoring language in the language settings entirely, at least in OneNote 2016, is bad enough.
Hi all, it seems the problem can be fixed by changing your default language to US or other proofing language you desire. It worked for me. BR
This still is a bug for me in 2020. I cannot change my proofing language to English. It is just stuck on Norwegian. Selecting English from the menu makes no difference.
Same here... please fix this... I'm using OneNote everyday, that's so frustrating to have most of the text highlighted in red... :-(
That smug reply is just salt in the wound. Why on earth would you proudly talk about having fixed the issue, if it's still just as **** two years later?
Still not working at all! Even when right clicking on some text and selecting a different language, OneNote will change back the language to the default language as soon as you start the next word! Doens't matter if I first use ctrl+A to select everything or if I just select a sentence or word... it will always change back immediately.
This is not just frustrating, it's also very embarrassing of Microsoft...
Why isn't this fixed yet?
Just make it so we can choose to set standard language in OneNote
Pleeeeeeease fix this.. .this is so annoying!
Fix this please...... Stupid shit problem
Why should we need to set this for each word we type?
This is still a major problem

Still not fixed...
Late October 2019 and STILL no fix. A complete embarrassment Microsoft. This is clearly unresolved and the onus continually falls on the customers to persist until heard. What will it take?

Not fixed!!! Almost November 2019... this is embarrassing for Microsoft.
You can manually set the proofing language (lets say language A) for paragraphs you've already written, but as you write new lines, then you're back to your keyboard language again (language B) ...This means I have to manually set the proofing language (A) again ...every time...for manually selected paragraphs
Still not fixed ...
So I'm back to school after 5 years and that still has not been fixed. You see that Microsoft is very american-centric.
