  1. Organization.

    If the secondary pages in notebooks were trapped under the main page so you could store them away and thus also open up , it would create more visibility.

        • Surface - Scrollbar accessability when in inking mode

          I have a Surface and have fallen in love with OneNote! The only issue I have is when I am in inking mode and run out of space on the page I have to exit inking mode, scroll down, and enter inking mode to continue. I would love to have a scroll bar on the right (or left for the lefties out there) which allows you to scroll the page without exiting inking mode.

          • Provide for moving a notebook location in the list of open notebooks, in the same way that a page or section can be moved

            ie moving where the notebook appears in the list of open notebooks (not changing the actual file location). The problem with a large number of open notebooks (I have > 430), is that dragging an open notebook to a new location in the list takes a long time.

            Alternatively, have a newly opened notebook appear after the currently-selected notebook, rather than at the end of the list.

            • Back button should work like other wp 8.1 apps

              OneNote app has an iphone-like navigation style, an upper virtual back button. We have a hardware back button so, why don't use it to go back? Currently if I press the back button the app closes like older wp 8 apps, so I suggest to have one note working like a wp 8.1 app.

                Add features that interactive whiteboards have, such as document camera support and the ability to project onto a second screen without the tools on the main screen visible and without the need for mirroring a device.

                • move or copy pages by quick filtering, good but can be better

                  One can pressed down Ctrl+Alt+M to "Move or Copy pages" current selected page(s) to a destination section, that is quickly filtered by inputting a few continuous starting letters. It is good but can be better.
                  The destination section may be filtered out by giving a few un-continuous letters. i.e
                  A destination section may be matched by:
                  several letters for notebook name+ slash+ several letters for section name
                  e.g. "o \ o e " for office\onenote" while not for "office\outlook"

                  • 옛한글 입력 기능..

                    현재 onenote 2013에서는 전혀 옛한글이 입력이 안되더라구요..
                    2010에서도 플러스 팩을 설치해야 하는데 저 같은 경우에는 플러스팩 cd도 받지 못햇어서 옛한글을 한컴오피스 프로그램에서 입력후 캡쳐해서 쓰고 있습니다...
                    옛한글 입력기능좀 살려주세요.
                    아니면 기본 IME 자체에 탑재하면 좋을 것 같은데 그러지도 않네요;ㅜㅜ

                    • OneNote 2013 desktop please improve the visibility of the note name

                      OneNote 2013 when in full page view and ribbon set to auto hide does not make it easy to identify the current note active.

                      The drop down to select other notes is not wide enough to see the note name.

                      It would help if OneNote 2013 full page view with auto hide ribbon enabled would display the name of the note in the minimized ribbon. There is quite a bit of unused space before and after the three dots in the minimized ribbon not utilize.

                      Working with multiple OneNote windows active other methods have to be used to check the…

                            I've discovered that I can't add words to the OneNote dictionary when I'm offline; the error says it might be full and to try later - and if later is when i'm online, it starts working again!

                              I noticed that no matter how much I zoom in, the the cursor representing the ink stays the same size. It would be more natural to see the size of the cursor go bigger as we zoom in and have the cursor become smaller as we zoom out

                              • Deeper integration with windows and windows phone

                                Are you looking for productivity? Do Onenote really deep integrated in Windows 10 (opt-in to avoid EU penalties ;)) so with a shortcut or something like that you can take a fast note with highlighted text, a selected image or a screenshot. Onenote as a ready-to-shot gun.

                                      When switching to full screen mode, the zoom level should stay the same, also the ability to pinch zoom is nice, but I accidentally found it and it wasn't apparent that it was an available function to me

                                      • Fix Metro/Modern App

                                        OneNote (Modern app) on my Surface 2 (RT) has some visual display problems. Most notably elements of the 'tool wheel' stop displaying properly, sometimes there are gaps. Other times the icons do not appear. This is quite frustrating!

                                          I would love to see editing options for notebooks, sections and pages coming.

                                          For example you could change the name or color or you could relocate a page, or a section. As well as that, there should especially be the posibility to create a notebook or section.

                                          This would make OneNote really easy to organize and would close the gap to other platforms apps (e.g. Mac, iPad).
