  1. Stop shapes from jumping to top of page

    Sometimes when inserting a shape at the bottom of a long page a notes, the shape will automatically get inserted at the very top of the page. This forces me to scroll back down to where I left off and to start the shape again (which can happen multiple times in a row)

    Please let me know whether this is a bug or something I am doing wrong.

  2. Font Size Controls when Text Selected

    Font Size Controls when Text selected.
    Microsoft word has this feature. Why not allow it in OneNote.
    It is very handy when formatting notes.
    As you can highlight things with sizes of fotns.

  3. Makes SurfaceHUB notes sent to OneNote searchable

    Would be nice if the notes taken on the white board of Surface HUB could be seachable in OneNote, when they are sent from SurfaceHUB in OneNote format.
    Indeed, hand-written notes taken directely in OneNote desktop are searchable, which is very nice. Should be the same from notes coming from Surface HUB.

  4. Page icons

    Should be able to add custom icons to section and page tabs, to help categorise information more effectively.

  5. Merge OneNote notes with pull down menu, like or even connected with calendar notes

    Merge OneNote notes with pull down menu of the phone, like the notes made through the calendar.

    When you set up a new note (text) in OneNote, you would select the text/note and decide to show it up in the pull-down menu (as "quick note") or even diretly in the calendar (which is already by itself connected with the notes in the pull-down menu).

    Would be a nice way to show up a note, without the need of opening programs (OneNote or Calendar) and maybe so reduce power consume. and it is even faster and more visible, from my point…

  7. More SmartBoard friendly features

    I am attempting to switch from using Smart Notebook files to present on my SmartBoard to OneNote notebook pages. The ability of my students to access notes and opportunities for collaboration are big pluses of OneNote, but I have seen some drawbacks. Importing a PowerPoint file into Smart Notebook moves pictures and textboxes as individual objects on a page. This allows for further editing prior to presenting. OneNote simply creates an image of the PowerPoint slide which means it can't be edited. I have to manually copy and paste each object from the slide onto a page in the notebook.…

  8. I want to export a page via right click as I can with a section. useful to save student work.

    I often need to save student work from a classnotebook for assessment purposes. I want an easy way to do this and a right click export seems a good option.

  11. When I open new OneNote page it overrride the earlier opened page, it should open one more tab.

    When I open new OneNote page it overrride the earlier opened page, it should open one more tab. When OneNote is closed and opened, it should restore **all** the opened tabs

  12. pictures over text

    I would love the ability to put a picture over text so that I could temporarily cover something up and then move the picture out of the way when I want to reveal the text

  13. Onenote grabs content of URL

    Sometimes you just have the webpage URL You want to save the URL only. In the background onenote would look up url and get the content. Later when you looked at the note it would have url and content

  14. Parent read-only access to student OneNote Class Notebooks

    We really need to have the ability to add parent access (as read only) via the OneNote Classbook creator.

    Note, I am NOT talking about giving sharing access to onenote classbooks.

    The reason is that parents have a right to see what students have done work wise- both in real life exercise books and with access to computer held student data (in most countries).

    Currently there is no easy way to share the work that a student has done with a parent.

    Of course an argument could be that the student should just show their onenote, but as with most…

  15. Images disapearing

    I just spent half an hour taking screen shots of important information and pasted the images side-by-side on a single onenote page.

    I turned to do something else and saw that my onenote page went blank and then only one of the 4 pictures returned. This is unacceptable!

  16. numerical day of the month

    dd/mm/yyyy gives a text day of the week for dd. If it was a NUMERICAL day of the month, OneNote would be usable as a diary.

  18. Add sound when checking off List items

    ToDo lists are satisfying to check as "complete" by clicking the box, it would be great if they had a sound associated with clicking said box. More pavlovian than useful but could popularize productivity.
