More Formatting Features (table styles, all lowercase text, default font, increase/decrease font size buttons, etc.)
- Table Styles
- Case Controls (e.g. all upper, all lower, etc.)
- Different Styles (Default heading color and font)
- Increase/Decrease Text Size buttons
Thanks for the feedback! We are considering this request, but don’t have anything to announce at this time. Please stay tuned.

This is in my opinion not only nice-to-have feature, but completely basic one. Was there any development since 2014?

Got excited when I saw the status of this as 'Gathering Feedback' then saw the date :-(
Make it where when I double click a word and drag, it starts highlighting more words instead of only highlighting the word you double clicked.
Hover mouse over word. Click Once, Click Again & Hold, Drag over more words to select.
Why is this not a thing in OneNote and it works in literally all other Office products? It drives me absolutely crazy!
Time stample insertion please.
Please also include sorting features similar to those in Excel for lists and tables.

1. Format Painter double-click to apply multiple times.
2. Line/paragraph spacing

Wow 4 years since MS responded.
Would love to see table formatting like Word and even Outlook have
When using multiple tables in a OneNote document and then emailing the page, tables that appear to be aligned on the screen become un-aligned in the email. I'd love to know how to get around this.
Word text controls are awesome. Why not just port them into OneNote?
I dearly miss the ability to apply intelligent styles to my text. Custom styles are a great way to get consistent notes across many contributors. Consistency improves legibility and value.
My take on this subject:
- Customizable Styles
- auto-formatting code
- Anti-Aliasing rendering of fonts
This is unfortunate. Still no ability to edit heading styles etc in OneNote...

Auto Ignore grammar when applying "Code" format
Ability to insert Icons. I use a lot of arrows in my notes, and prefer Word because of the autoconvert
Ability to add custom styles would be fantastic (without having to install an addon)!

How can OneNote be missing so many formatting features that have been in Word for years? There's some sort of ridiculous, executive level reasoning behind this failure because no self-respecting programmer would let this happen.

My company has precise branding standards. OneNote should support Themes just like Word so we can copy information in and out in a predictable way. OOXML, please!

Wow, it's been 3 years since the "gathering feedback" response ... Doesn't mean something good ... I'd appreciate to have a background color for visually separating different pieces of text.
bump. still the same for onenote 2016.
When I have a section of text that is from another location I like to be able to set the background for that section to another color so that it looks like a box with the text inside (like code view in various websites).
The only way to do this in one note is by setting a highlight which only changes the background color where there are characters so instead of having a box shape with a solid background you have an iregular shape with only the text having the background color. Blank lines have no color at all and it breaks apart something that intended to be related.
Banded rows/columns + Header row + filter (i.e. the Excel table features) would be really helpful
