      • scroll bounce

        Just started using onenote app, windows 8 i think, on my asus for medical school. Its great, but would really like to be able to change default font. And it keeps doing this scroll bounce type thing where i try to scroll down and it hops back up to an earlier section. Don't know if this is intentional, but as midterms approach may throw my computer against a wall out of frustration.

          • Allow user to choose from all available notebooks and sections when sharing to OneNote on on Windows 10

            On OneNote for Mac OS X (from the App store), I can decide what notebook and section I want to save whatever I'm sharing to. On Windows 10, for some reason it only shows the latest open section instead. Please update OneNote so that it allows me to choose from any available notebooks and sections when I'm sharing to OneNote.

              • Enable Overtype Mode (Insert key)

                Being able to use overtype (pressing the Insert key to enable/disable overwriting the character after the cursor with the new input one) would be, as in every word processing program, very useful.

                    I have complex passwords that cycle regularly. I paste these into a quick note. I want quicknotes to have a monospaced typeface. I want that to be the default for all new quicknotes.

                      • Option to show number of pages on tabs, like My Notes (23)

                        I would like an option to show the number of pages in each tab of a notebook. So if a tab called Tools had 23 pages in it, the tab text would look like this: Tools (23)

                        Thanks.

                            • Enable different layout options for inserted pictures/screenshots

                              You know how in Word you can have different layout options for pictures with text? options being in line with text, square, tight, above and below, etc. Can we have that in One note please? and the ability to put pictures side by side with each other within a text box would be great too.
                              Thanks!

                                I'm using OneNote on Win 10 (on surface pro 3)

                                and the UX has changed to worst
                                too mush vertical space were taken (by the ribbon)
                                I found the previous ring pallet mush useful then the current ribbon

                                I really like to be able to add / define my one color
                                I also like to set the size to the stroke

                                I can't reorder my notes

                                lasso should scroll when rich the edges

                                • Hyperlink Word Headings

                                  When I insert a hyperlink in OneNote, referring to a Word document, I would like to have an option to link exactly to one paragraph, one heading of the Word document. So when I click the hyperlink in OneNote, the Word document that opens should scroll to that specific point in the text.

                                    • OneNote Windows Phone needs access to Office Lens

                                      I would love to have access to the Office lens app while adding a photo within the OneNote mobile app on Windows Phone. (switch lenses). Taking images of receipts and adding them on the fly will look so much better while travelling. Now they are just full images instead of neatly cropped/aligned. When done with the trip I just send them to the financial department.

                                        • How about

                                          I have exported my notes from my OneNote 2010 that I used on my old laptop HDD. Now I have installed new SSD drive but I can't import my notes as there is no OneNote 2010 version available anymore and the 213 does not allow local import. Online is excluded as note have confidential info. So thank you MS. You made my day. I will never re,y on you again. My bad moving from Apple OS with its set of tools., No wonder that you go downhill.
