We are closing this idea as the platforms have all been converged into 1 common design as part of the July 2017 update.
On Windows, please use the OneNote for Windows 10 app in order to see this new design.
For more information on this, please visit the following article:
Thank you for all your feedback in helping us shape the next version of OneNote.
move the section to the left in OnNote 2016 not in OneNote for Windows 10, this is not completed

Since voting is impossible, adding my own comment.. The office version of onenote should use the same format as the others - all navigation in one place! I use the office version on a daily basis, every time I open a notebook in browser I think how much better the interface is but I would prefer to benefit from it in the office application!
Just do this for the Office OneNote version as well. It works great in the app. It would work great in the full version also.
I ment previous time about part of Office package. OneNote for Windows 10 as independent app cannot save local Notebooks which is lame and could be another upgrade.
Move "pages" view of a notebook to the left side like it is now in web application version.
Interesting that the Mac gets UI changes before Windows (OneNote 2016), even on inside preview, the option to have the section vertical is missing.
We're all different! So it makes sense to have different layout options.

OneNote 2013 (and perhaps OneNote 2016) have an option View -> whole page view which is very good and brings vertical section list. OneNote Online also has very good layout.

The Mac version and the Online version have much more logical layouts. Even the W10 App version has the page list on the left, with previews.

I would like option to have all navigation docked to left or right of page (user preference which, bonus if can be torn off, moved, and docked dynamically)
The current system of Notebooks on left, Sections on top, and pages on right is too dispersed for me and my users. I like how in the web UI the pages are nested under the Sections and can be expanded and collapsed. I can see at a glance how the page I'm on is related to others in the neighbourhood. That's too hard with the 3 way setup.

I found the navigation on the left super nice when using OneNote in tablet mode with touch & pen and would love to see it back.
But to give more useful and more general feedback - I think what was nice about the left-side navigation in Win 8.1 OneNote app was that you could easily navigate between notebooks and pages in a uniform way.
If you are using the new desktop app, you have drop-down with notebooks, tabs with sections, list of pages on the right. That's *three* different UI elements to do one thing - going to a page where I want to write! In the Win 10 app, it's the same story - three different UI elements.
In contrast, the Win 8.1 app had a nice uniform way of navigation via a single UI element.

This suggestion can be combined with the following mostly-identical suggestions:
But also; please implement it! This is a desperately needed feature, and a "Bookcase" is such a logical organizational unit.
move section tabs to left, nested under their respective notebook
Why would you remove a major navigation function and say nothing? I have seen no documentation, warning, etc. or any configurable option to get my list of notebooks back on the left of the UI. Now I have to click twice to select a notebook. Our screens are getting larger and larger, I want the fewest clicks possible.
M. Charles Grant commented
On OneNote Online, notebooks are displayed with the Sections in a vertical list on the left, then the Pages also in a vertical list. It would be a great convenience if OneNote had the option of a similar layout.
Kevin Connolly commented
Notebooks, groups, and sections can be set by the user to behave like a tree / hierarchy. Pages and subpages somewhat behave that way too. I would like to combine them so each step along the hierarchy behaves like a subfolder. It seems like that was the idea but somewhere along the lines they decided to subdivide the "true" hierarchy into two pieces, and the reason is unclear.
Frank Qi commented
This is actually one of the core design principles behind OneNote and I don't think they would get rid of it altogether.
I've also felt like there's too much clutter at times when I just want to write on a single page. There's a full page view you can enable by pushing F11. You can also hide the top ribbon by clicking on the button beside the minimize button. Hopefully that will serve you as well as it has for me.
Steve Adams commented
Using the main left hand navigation pane makes the tabs that display over the top redundant and confusing (to some of my users !) would like to get rid of this.
