    • Make the new Update available for everyone!

      I got the newest version of the OneNote App on my Thinkpad Yoga. Great so far.
      But it doesn't support the new features (pdf-import, highlighting, ...) described here:

      WHY?

      • find

        Not an idea, but a technical issue. The find function doesn't work properly when it comes to documents inserted onto pages. It will find that words or phrases exist on the page, but highlight a completely incorrect location. It works fine when it comes to typed notes though, just not inserted pdfs or powerpoints.

        • Problem with onenote 2010

          Could you try to do this with equation editor in word 2010 and onenote 2010?

          In word 2010:
          1.Insert new equation
          2.write 2+3
          3.select 2+3
          4.click on square bracket
          5.The equation now is [2+3]

          In one note 2010:

          1.Insert new equation
          2.write 2+3
          3.select 2+3
          4.click on square bracket
          5.The equation now is [ ]

          Conclusion: same step, different equations!

          I'd liketo use one note for matemathic homeworks but with this bug is impossible: if I want to correct a wrong equation I must to rewrite it.

          • Fix character mappings in the OneNote Windows Store app

            I use a non-standard keyboard layout called Colemak and some keyboard combinations produce different characters in the OneNote Windows Store app than in any other Windows application (including desktop OneNote). For example, right alt+[the button labeled K on a qwerty keyboard] is supposed to produce the "é" character, whereas it produces the "€" character in the OneNote Windows Store app.

              • Lumia OneNote

                I have seen a prototype online that a phone with Windows Phone operation system including a stylus (similar to Samsung Note I, II and III) may be launched.

                • Shell.Application FolderFiles menu when right clicking attachment files

                  We are missing full or partly Shell Folder menu for text file type formats (.txt, .cmd, *.ini, *.reg, *.xml, *.ps1 etc). OneNote only has basic menus: Open, Save As and Rename but missing Edit, Print, Open With.., Open Location, Properties.

                  We want the ability to Edit none binary files. I assume the implementation in developer perspective is to include Shell FolderFiles object when right click the attachment in the page.

                  • Windows Store App: Add Page Range to Printing Support

                    Unfortunately, just like the Mail app, it is not currently possible to print out a range of pages from a OneNote document.

                    Can the OneNote team please talk to their Microsoft Reader or IE11 colleagues – they have shown that it *is* possible to print out page ranges from within their Modern apps.

                      • When importing powerpoint slides- new zooming levels stays consistent for all pages

                        Right now after importing a ppt, changing the zoom level of a page doesnt change it for all the pages. Ex: I change page 2 zoom from 75% to 60%, then click on page 3, the zoom level on page 3 is back to 75%. would like for all pages to be at 60% after i change it on one page.
                        Please fix asap!

                        • When working in a table and hovering mouse near row or column leading edge, enable addition of elements like in Word 2013

                          In Word 2013, when I have a table in the document, and I hover my mouse on the right column or bottom edge, a small "plus sign" pops up that enables me to quickly add a column or row to the document. Currently in OneNote, I have to move my mouse to the ribbon to insert these items. If OneNote recapitulated this feature currently found in Word 2013, it would quickly improve my work flow.

                          • Keep it simple but complete

                            I have been using "note" programs for 30 years and OneNote is really beginning to stand out from the crowd, Google and Apple don't seem to be in the race. There is one thing that could kill OneNote, like it did Lotus Notes, and that is getting away from the simple, core, purpose of organizing and searching everything everywhere. OneNote has to satisfy two opposites, remain simple and intuitive while covering all platforms and data types. If the team keeps the focus on OneNote being an "amazing" program that users go to first, it may be the most important MS…

                              OneNote may not be perfect, and I like improvements, but don't destroy it with capricious UX revamps like have happened to other Microsoft products. Thank you. WE LOVE ONENOTE!

                                      While this is something for windows phone, I think it applies to all mobile platforms. I want my voicemail to go directly to OneNote, and then be able to review it wherever OneNote is.

                                      • Power Point compatibility - improve

                                        Please improve office-compatibility in general, but especially for Power-Point.
                                        So far you´re often forced to import a "stupid" picture without any adding/changing possibility.
                                        Instead I want to import e.g. a nice colored Table with pictures and text to add/change in the cells etc.

                                        • Capture document links from other Office applications ...

                                          I used OneNote as my central repository for all digial assets I use. I would like to be able to go to a single place ( OneNote ) and have a complete history of all activity pertaining to a particular topic. When opening and editing documents stored on file system or in SharePoint, I doesn't make sense to keep a second copy in OneNote but I would like to be able to keep track of all the document links. Perhaps include an option so that when a document is opened and edited in Word / Excel / PowerPoint / etc.…
