      • Allow fragment identifiers for locations within a page to which links can be created.

        Navigating longer pages looking for information can take time. It would be useful to allow parts of pages to be tagged with the equivalent of a fragment identifier. This identifier could be the target of a link from other pages. This would reduce the need for scrolling the longer page, looking for the relevant information. It would also reduce the need to break a page into smaller pages to segment out individual pieces of information

        • Ability to open pages in a new window to be able to view several pages at the same time.

          • Can OneNote Show the cursor of all those who are collaborating on a page?

            I would like to be able to see where the cursor is of each member who is collaborating on a page. This will eliminate individuals writing over top of each other. Creating a chaotic page of information.

            • Delete option on Sync

              I really like the online sync, but sometimes i want to delete jus on my Mobile phone to free up spaces and leave the online Note.

              So i'll suggest that the delete option on Windows Mobile have an option that keeps or delete notes on either or Both sides, as user specifies .

              • Let's make a Study lock-down mode.

                I am a college student and I love using OneNote to take note, although... OneNote is not an easy program to actually learn from, that's why I would like to suggest a mode in OneNote with a timer that locks down all other programs (or keeps them at the background).
                The Internet is a fun place, but it really is distracting when you are trying to study, so I would suggest a feature within the mode where you can search the internet for a certain topic, but just for a certain amount of time. another feature would be to track…

                  • Show Recent notes on default Live Tile

                    In addition to all ideas asking for you to display the page content when the page gets pinned to the start screen, I'd like to see a list of my recent notes when the OneNote app itself gets pinned.

                    The reason is that some times, just by looking at the title of a note, I can remember what I have to do. I could create multiple lists of things to buy, one list (page) for each place I have to go.

                    If you display my recent notes to the live tile, it gets easier for me to remember of every…

                    • Hotkey to send text to OneNote

                      A Win+ hotkey to send selected text from any app to the next line below the current OneNote.
                      "Send to onenote" is not very usable when you just want to continuously select and send snippets of text while working in a word doc

                          Es ist natürlich, dass neue Einträge in einer Liste oben erscheinen. Oder erscheinen in Ihrem Outlook neue Mails unten im Posteingang?
                          Meine OneNote listet zugefügte Seiten aber unten, am Ende der Liste.
                          Gerne hätten wir die Option, dass neu zugefügte Seiten oben erscheinen.

                          • Restore 2010's persistent Notebook/tab navigation pane branching option ripped away in 2013

                            OneNote 2010 had a persistent Notebook navigation pane branching option now missing in OneNote 2013. Whereas in 2010 I could easily navigate left to right visually from the root Notebook with Tabs, then select a page, additionally making it easy to move things around like in EverNote. Do you want us to abandon OneNote and go back to EverNote? Don't be scared of Balmer. He's gone!

                                Yo trabajo siempre sobre páginas infinitas.

                                OneNote tiene una limitación cuando genera pdf de limitar el tamaño a 55 cm x 55 cm.

                                Es claro que no existe un papel infinito pero un pdf sí puede serlo.

                                Por favor quiten esta limitante.

                                • While moving or copying a page, I should be able to create a new Notebook or Section within the move/copy dialog.

                                  Many times I have gone to move/copy a page, only to realize that in my large Notebook hierarchy, the location most appropriate to move or copy to hasn't been created yet. Right now I have to back out of the move/copy dialog, create the new location, then begin the move/copy process over again.
                                  This would be useful to me because the structure of my Notebook setup is very fluid and spontaneous, so I did not start out with a fully formed Notebook/Section framework. I doubt that many people do. :)

                                    Instead of having a different color selector for each OneNote tool, have one universal color selector. Users could switch between drawing, typing, and creating shapes and have the color remain the same.
