Customizable keyboard shortcuts
I'd really like to see customizable keyboard shortcuts in OneNote. As a note-taking application, one needs to be able to invoke important commands at the touch of a single keyboard shortcut while taking meeting minutes or lecture notes, in order not to miss a beat of what is being said.
It's always made me sad that only Microsoft Word has ever been given a proper keyboard customization system.
Being able to assign macros (VBA macros in Word, macros from the Onetastic add-on in OneNote) to the keyboard is especially important.
Should be able to customize tags as in 2016.

Customizable or at least per-tool keyboard shortcuts for people with disabilities / mobility issues
This would really help for those of us that need to take notes with lots of transliteration!
Customizable Shortcuts help me to make me work more efficient. You want to support the user to get his work done in an efficient way, that is the aim of all your products. I really would appreciate if you can get this back for OneNote and your other MS products. Thanks a lot in advance!

I have created a set of keyboard shortcuts on 1 device, and they don't carry over to the others. It would be nice to make a feature that allows you to use "Cloud" configuration vs local for custom keyboard shortcuts.
This is so important! I do not want to reach to select an eraser everytime when I have a wacom tablet that where I could bind the eraser to one of the buttons or to on-screen-controls that appear right at the cursor. Please add customizable shortcuts or at least shortcuts for every tool.
Can't believe they put such a neutered version out and tell us this will be the future version. This App makes me so angry when using and i wonder how this could ever be approved!

OneNote slows me down because I have to retrain my physical memory to learn the new shortcut keys, and the ones chosen for me aren't the ones I use. I'd use it a lot more if I could configure the keyboard to work the way I like.

I use slate and magnet for window management and have setup some keyboard shortcuts systemwide. I'd love to be able to change the 'search all' keyboard shortcut to cmd+shift+F
The current keyboard shortcut for headings is to hard to reach while I'm taking notes making the headings virtually useless. Need to be able to assign macros to keys and need to be able to assign functions to keys

Absolutely. It is unreasonable to not to be able to configure a custom shortcut for every single feature and option on the application.
Make it so.
I want use OneNote with Sublime Text keybindings.
