  1. [Default zoom to write] Zoom predeterminado para escribir

    Yo no uso nunca OneNote con teclado, siempre lo hago con mi lápiz Wacom.

    La caligrafía es una función de varios parámetros en donde el más importante es el zoom con el cual se escribe.

    Normalmente escribo al 300% para tener una buena letra.

    Pinchando con los dedos me deja siempre en 300% lo que es perfecto, pero sería muy bueno poder configurarlo.

    Un doble tap sobre la pantalla con los dedos me debería llevar a ese Zoom predeterminado de escritura.

    • [Floating Toolbars] Barras de herramientas flotantes

      Creo que en OneNote 2007 tenía la posibilidad de tener barras de herramientas flotantes o anclarlas abajo o a los lados de la pantalla.

      Extraño esa funcionalidad pues podía agrupar y colocarlas en el lugar más conveniente, incluso flotando sobre la nota.

      Esto es muy útil cuando trabajo con tablero interactivos como el Epson BrightLink.

      • Objetos de n caras

        Si puedo agrupar objetos encima de un post-it debería poder voltear el post-it y escribir en su otra cara.

        Me explico.

        En papel un naipe tiene dos caras porque el papel es de dos dimensiones.

        Si tengo un objeto virtual como un naipe, no debo limitarme a dos caras sino puede tener n caras.

        ¿Cuál sería su utilidad?

        Usando OneNote como herramienta de presentación, podría tener una carta con una pregunta y al girarla obtener la respuesta. Si tiene n caras, se convertiría en una forma de ir develando en pasos la respuesta.

        Si además puedo escribir encima e ir…

        • Book access

          the ability to remove access from a device. ie, i have downloaded a book to a device and no longer have access to that device to remove it. by adding a password i have protected the data but can no longer access it from my other mobile devices and in a way have lost the usability of the book.

              make keyboard shortcuts to switch back and forth from romaji, katakana and hiragana. Add the option to make big bixes to go around texts. This would make onenote much quicker to use and makes it possible to use in class.

              • Keep the "Send to Blog" command in future updates; please don't ever remove it.

                Being able to draft notes in OneNote and then automatically send them to Word (in Blog mode) for final editing before publishing is awesome. So rather than suggesting a new feature or idea, I just want to say keep the "Send to Blog" function going. Thanks!

                    Please add AC Panning support. I have the g502 Logitech Mouse and the side scrolling function does not work for me in OneNote. From Logitech, I've learn that this has to do with applications not supporting AC Pan. Side scrolling already works for me in Word. Please port this functionality over because the ability to scroll left and right in an onenote page is extremely important when I put notes off to the sides of a page.

                      • Gesture Support for Selecting Commands

                        Keyboard Shortcuts don't fit with OneNote if you're using it pen-based, so some kind of stylus-based gesture's would help hard core users. For example: a single short 'tick' mark in the upper right selects a thin pen; two short tick marks selects a thicker pen. Similar gesture in the lower right could switch between pen/highlighter.

                        Simplest implementation would be a double-tap gesture to with the pen to open a 'custom commands' window. The window should be free-floating window that opens under the stylus for easy command selection.

                        • Toggle section groups in same screen

                          Is it possible to toggle section groups while still being able to see the other sections? Like, simply sliding the contained section tabs open towards the side of the section group, then sliding them back in when you close the group again? Right now, the way it just opens only the containing tabs, it feels like being taken into an entirely different notebook. I recognize that's ideal for some, but I don't want to have to keep clicking back and forth--I just want the ability to minimize a few section tabs I don't use quite as often. Being given the…

                                Add support to attach/embed files as shortcuts so that OneNote won't copy duplicates of the files inside the notes; doubling up disk space. My idea is to add full preview support for attached shortcut files. If I'm not making this clear, this is an example of how I want things to be:-
                                If I attach an audio or video file as an shortcut in OneNote, then OneNote should still be able to play it perfectly with all the controls and features; but the only difference being OneNote plays it from the original file from the disk and not by coping…

                                • Erasing or looping text in the lower half of the screen causes the page to move downwards

                                  Erasing or looping should only move the screen around the edges and perhaps scale depending on how close you are to the edge.

                                  The ENTIRE lower HALF of the screen causes a suttle downward page scroll!

                                        as you see, now, evernote has better files layout design:
                                        1, it can show all the long documents name;
                                        2,it always stays in align ;
                                        3, it should allow customer to lock within A4 size, but no limitations in the paper length. actually,the word paper layout show move to onenote, it help;
