  1. Can screen clipping of OneNote 2016 be started with command line?

    Several months ago, when I was using Office 2013, the command line
    OnenoteM.exe /screenclip
    would start the screen cilpping and send to OneNote. But after upgrading to Office 2016, this command no longer works! Is there a new command taking this place?

  4. Show image snippets in note title

    ive been using the windows store version of onenote every since i started a few years ago, and now that the desktop version of onenote can be installed on windows im trying it out the last few days but the note titles are really hard to follow without showing a small image from within the note

    half the time i don't even bother giving notes proper names but i can still quickly tell which is which by the images inside when using the windows store app.

    the desktop version seems like its miles ahead of the windows store version in…

  8. Swap OneNote versions.

    Swap versions. Make the online version the Windows 10 version and viceversa. Online version has more features than the installed one.

  9. Microsoft Band support - displaying pages and to-do lists on the band

    Please could we get the option to display pages from a Notebook on the Band. There is an unofficial app that lets you display text entered on the band, however I use Onenote for organizing things like shopping lists, to-do lists and activity plans. It would be useful to glance at these on my wrist rather than pulling my phone out.

  11. Check for existing OneNote on OneDrive before overwriting it on first launch

    Just want to report the unfortunate incident that, when I move from Lumia 920 to Lumia950XL, everything I previously saved in OneNote is lost.

    I'm not using the "Transfer my data" App to do migration because basically the only thing the I need to keep are on OneDrive. However when the OneNote App launched the first time, I found that all previously written notes are lost. Then I checked the web version on OneDrive and found it got overwritten with blank copy too.

    The OneNote App should check with OneDrive to see whether there are existing OneNote document, and don't…

  13. Adjusting lines (from the shapes menu)

    Previously you could select drawn lines with the lasso tool and adjust their angle by dragging either end of the line.

    Now when a line is selected it gets selected as a fixed object. I can no longer drag it around from the ends, I can only reshape it as if it is a rectangle.

  14. Option to turn off page previews in OneNote Mobile for Windows 10

    I'd like to see an option to turn off the page previews in the page tabs for OneNote Mobile. I have a lot of pages, and the page previews take up space. I end up having to scroll up or down a lot to find my other pages.

  16. ON2016: Bring back lasso select highlight!

    In OneNote 2013, when the lasso was used to select ink, you could see (it was highlighted) which ink would be selected.

    This was really useful when there was a lot of ink close together and you wanted to make a specific selection.

    In OneNote 2016 this doesn't happen. This means that ink, while appearing to be in (or out of) the lasso may in fact be accidentally excluded (or included).

    E.g. draw a rectangle. It is possible to select the rectangle by selecting just three of its corners (not any three, a specific three).
    In OneNote 2013 it was…

  18. Windows Store app: allow choice of favorite colors

    4 quick Pen and Highlighter colors were added to the app a few months ago but I can't believe users still can't specify them!

  19. Frame to run scripts in

    I want to be able to draw a rectangle or any other area, that can run code like html and JS script, so I can use other sources in the notebook. I am a teacher and sometimes I want to have websites or little applets on the notebook on my OWB

  20. handwriting function on new lumia phones

    I am pretty sure the new Lumia phone 950xl is big enough to do hand writing with fingers. I am willing for this function appear on my phone so that I can take notes much easily for my study.
