I love the fact you can drag a PDF into a OneNote page and it generate the pages automatically. However, I would really like to edit the PDF when it is my OneNote page. The highlighter tool is there, I just can't use it on the PDF.
It would be really great if you could insert a PDF file (with high quality) and then pull apart parts of that PDF file. Something like "Insert"> "Insert Space" but with PDF files. There are very many of my fellow students who would like this role.
The only possibility currently is: "Screen Clipping". But if I do this with so many PDFs with a lot of pages, then it is very time-consuming and the images are also of poor quality.

Yes, it would be great to have the PDFs in a better resolution and being able to mark the actual text and not just an image, which is really hard to work with. I use OneNote for my school stuff and it is really annoying to resize 25-pages documents resulting in a really bad resolution.
PDF functionality needs to be more like Notability

As far as I'm aware I'm able to mark on the PDF printout currently, even if those markings aren't actually tied to the PDF (a bit of a weakness).
I have to use a third party app to highlight and annotate my textbook PDFs before adding them to onenote, it'd be great to be able to select only a sentence or so of a PDF to turn into text instead of the whole page as well
I came here to request this same feature. It is one of the only reasons I am thinking about re-upping with EN at $70/yr.
Inline viewing of pdf's
Please implement this feature similar to how this has been implemented in Evernote with an option to switch between a single page (windows) and scrolling feature (mac version)
I have a large collection of various pdf documents collected over the years and this feature has turned into a major deal breaker.
