  1. Make the "Highlight & Shift" change case function work in OneNote for WP

    As it says here...

    http://www.windowsphone.com/en-US/how-to/wp8/settings-and-personalization/keyboard-tips

    ... I should be able to...

    "Tap the word to highlight it, then tap the SHIFT key to capitalize it. Tap again to switch to all caps."

    This seems to work in all apps EXCEPT OneNote for Windows Phone. Please add this functionality to OneNote for Windows Phone.

    • More options for pen widths for Windows Store App

      Can you please give us more options for the width of pens in the Windows Store App? Right now, there are only three pen options -- and two of them are very wide! And the one that's most narrow is, at least for me, too narrow. Can you please add some additional options, so that the pen widths are more like the options on the full Windows version? Thank you!

      • Surface 3 Pro - Double click screen screen clip goes to current working page, not new page

        When performing screen clipping with pen for surface 3 pro, it is very inconvenient to have image pasted to a new page. image/screenshot should either go where you last left off on your existing working page, or simply to clipboard, and simply pasted to location your choosing. PLEASE FIX this!!

        Regards.

          • Buy NeoLab and integrate N2 smartpen into Onenote & Surface stylus

            Can you buy this company, NeoLab, integrate their technology into the Surface Pen (hardware side) and Onenote (software side). Your stylus/Onenote current implementation is a small step in the right direction, but this would make onenote the perfect note-taking tool.

            • Enhance Hyperlink 'Link' Modal Dialog to enable a new page to be created at a target location

              When you hyperlink a piece of text you get the Link modal dialog box that allows you to pick an existing page but not create a new one. Please add the ability to create a new page in a target location that will be the target for the link - like how a wiki works.

                • Paper border

                  When the user selects page size, the page needs to be optimized to fit the aspect of the screen. Don't have it continue into grey. For reference, look at the android app Papyrus.

                    • Bring screenshot functionaility in line with other Office programs

                      Currently when you want to take a screenshot in OneNote you are limited to screen clippings where you drag a rectangle over the area of the screen you want to clip.

                      In other Microsoft Office programs (Word, Excel, Powerpoint, Outlook) you can do this, but you can also select from thumbnails of individual windows to clip right from within the ribbon. This makes taking screenshots of individual windows very fast.

                      Please add this to OneNote

                      • OneNote for Windows Mobile audio record when phone is locked.

                        Record audio under Windows Mobile OneNote even when the phone is locked. Very useful for students to record classroom courses. Right now I'm forced to use alternative app.

                        • Virtual Notebook - A view to merge notebooks

                          I would like to see a Notebook that is virtually a few of two or more Notebooks. By this, I mean, being able to see two physically separate notebooks as a single view. Sections from Notebook A and Sections from Notebook B would appear as a single set of section tabs. Tabs with the same name in each notebook would show all the pages from both Notebooks A and B together in the viewed section.
                          Why?
                          Some of my notebooks are stored locally (and on an encrypted drive) because they contain sensitive information. Other notebooks contain non-sensitive data, often bulky,…

                          • [Underline mode (highlighted/highlight)] Modo subrayado (resaltado / highlight)

                            Sugerencia: Establecer un "Modo subrayado" (me refiero al resaltado/highlight, no al underline)

                            Plataforma: Windows modo no táctil (no conozco el funcionamiento del modo táctil)

                            Objetivo: poder concentrarse en leer y subrayar textos largos, sin tener que apartar el cursor ni la vista de la línea en la que estás trabajando, ni tener que pulsar más teclas de las imprescindibles ni usar más opciones de las necesarias, que interrumpen y distraen. En realidad, un modo "resaltado" como el de Word, sería suficiente, siempre que fuese tan fácil de usar en Onenote como el marcador/inking.

                            Problemas actuales:
                            - El actual modo marcador…

                            • Ability to hide "Click to view other notebooks" button in full page view

                              When using full page view with a small window size (mimicking a post-it note) the ever present button to access other notebooks and sections gets in the way and takes up important window real estate.

                              Even in a larger window, the button expands to take up more horizontal space, and if I have content going across the window, it again covers up the content in the upper right hand corner.

                              It would be lovely if this button automatically hid itself until scroll over or some such thing such that it wasn't taking up space and blocking the view of content…

                                • When OneNote is updated, Send to OneNote should not make itself the default printer

                                  After OneNote is updated, Send to OneNote often becomes the default printer, notably if the regular default printer is the Microsoft XPS Document Writer. The OneNote installer should respect the default printer that the user had selected prior to updating OneNote.

                                    • Add a Home Button/Link

                                      The recently used list on WP* works almost all the time UNLESS you have lots and lots of notebooks like I do and want to add a note to a specific section in another notebook in which class I have to click the breadcrumb nav over and over at the top of the screen. A home button that instantly takes me to my notebook list would save a ton of time (the breadcrumb is a hard control to activate as well.)

                                      • Bullet proof synchronization between devices

                                        I need reliable, immediate, synchronization. Please make synchronization as bulletproof across devices as Evernote. OneNote is totally superior for taking notes and keeping reference information - I have used it since its inception.

                                        • Clip to onenote in metro

                                          We should be able to clip a section of the screen to OneNote in metro without going to desktop. Currently the only options are taking a full screenshot or using ModerMix to run metro apps in desktop so as to us the clip to OneNote function. Both are less than perfect.
