    • Add feature - editing pasted pictures/screenshots by paint

      Nothing to describe - it is simple. I want to have possibility to clik PPM on picture and clik edit with paint. After edition, save straight to one note document.

      • [create a notebook template] Notizbuch als Vorlage erstellen

        Es wäre super, wenn ich ein Noitzbch mit Ordnern und wahlweise auch Dokumenten als Original abspeichern und dann als Vorlage für weitere Notizbücher kopieren könnte.

          • change colours of pinned notes

            Please create a variety of different colours other than a purple pinned note. It would be nice to have different colors to have a separation of pinned notes. On all devices and OS.

              OneNote Files

              add files/attachment to a notebook by adding them to the same folder as the notebook

              To see how this might work, try the 'classic way' of managing notebooks . ie you make a local Notebook (so not the 'cloud' version).
              you will notice OneNote uses 'classic' folders and files in an intuitive way.

              1) you will notice the notebook name is the same as the as the folder name (in which the notebook file (.toc) is plced)

              2) any section n the notebook are just section files in that folder. when you copy (or create) new section files…

              • [Spell check obscured Underline] Rechtschreibüberprüfung verdeckt Unterstreichen

                Falls das Wort als falsch erkannt wird, wird es rot unterstrichen. Leider wird die normale Textformatierung verdeckt und ich sehe nicht mehr ob mein Wort unterstrichen wurde. Die normale Text-Formatierung sollte jedoch Vorrang haben.

                  • Add OneNote shortcut on the call screen

                    It would be very useful if you could bring OneNote directly from call screen and make notes during the phone call (registering also date of the phone call and caller)

                    • Overtype mode (INSERT key)

                      Would it please be possible to implement the overtype mode (enabled/disabled via pressing the INSERT key) in OneNote for Windows & OneNote Online? This would be very useful in many situations.

                      Thank you.

                        • Create Notebook user account labels

                          When more than one Microsoft Live account is added the "New Notebook" will list all accounts but not any extra information like the email address linked to the connected service. What I see when creating a "New Notebook" is a list of my OneDrive accounts all listed as "OneDrive - Personal" and I can't tell the accounts apart.

                          When viewing the accounts under the File/Accounts the connected services will list the email address linked to the account.

                          I have not found a way to rename the connected services in OneNote or make it easier to identify the specific connected service…

                          • add back the 'insert or remove extra space' button under the vertical scrollbar, like in ON07

                            This small button is very useful when inking notes, esp. when in fullscreen mode, so I am not sure why it has been removed in ON10.
                            Thanks.

                            • ctrl+drag&drop to duplicate the selected part

                              In a lot of tools, if you maintain control while dragging an object, it duplicates it.

                              It would be nice to be able to do the same with OneNote.
                              Write a paragraph, maintain ctrl, drag the title bar (...) of the container and it creates the same paragraph in a new container.

                                If microsoft wants the windows store app to gain in popularity or even lead the public (both casual and power users) to believe that it is a viable option over regular desktop apps They would do well to ensure that there is feature parity with the desktop versions of their app.

                                For this suggestion, I would like the Subsection/Subpages portion of the app to be brought up to par with the desktop app. Currently, we are not able to add/edit subsections. And Subpages can eb made to be edited easier in the app.

                                • Windows Phone app should always resume on the same page

                                  If I lock my screen or navigate away from OneNote for a little while on Windows Phone 8.1, when I navigate back the app reloads and I end up on the main OneNote notebook page. I wish the app would resume on the same page where I left it.

                                  • Allow the Collapse/ Expand Subpages "arrow" to be shown to the left of the Page Titles

                                    It would be REALLY useful in my opinion to be able to configure OneNote to show the arrow used to collapse and expand subpage sections to the left of the Pages list rather than the right as at present - just seems a more logical place for it ;-)

                                    PS - Being to upload graphics on this Site would also help as we could show you exactly what we mean.

                                    • add name when exporting to Word document

                                      I do my homework in OneNote, so it's there next to my notes, so when I go to turn it in, I export the page to a Word doc, and submit that. However, there seems to be no way to add my name to the top of the page, so the teacher would have to rely on the document's info page to see who made it.

                                      • '찾아 바꾸기' 기능을 넣어주세요.

                                        중간에 용어가 바뀌거나 잘못 삽입된 단어들을 모두 바꿔야 할 경우 이 기능이 요긴합니다. 하지만 아직 원노트에 해당 기능이 없어 외부 플러그인으로 해결하고 있는 중입니다. 워드 등의 기타 Office 툴에서는 모두 해당 기능이 제공되면서 원노트에만 없는 점은 의문입니다. 빠른 검색은 좋지만 검색 이후에 있을 수 있는 조치 등을 많이 배려해시면 어떨지 싶습니다. 찾아 바꾸기 강력하게 추천 드립니다.

                                        • Notebook Name at the top

                                          Perhaps there is a way to do this that I am not familiar with? This seems like such a simple thing!

                                          I would like to see the name of the notebook at the top of the page, where it already shows "<<current page name>> - Microsoft OneNote.

                                          Several comments in no particular order:

                                          1. Putting " - Microsoft OneNote" after the name of the page (above the ribbon) does not actually help me. I already know that I am using OneNote :D
                                          2. The Section name is in the tabs, as are the page names down the right, so why…
