  1. Allow to add Links as pages with reading view

    It should be possible to add a page whose source is a link. So the page only consists of a link, and when opening it shows a (cached) reading view of said page. Similar to how it works in Evernote right now

  3. Ms should totally allow extensions for onenote, to add real functionality.

    Think for instance a finance tracker extension, you could add incomes and payments, generate graphics and whatnot, but it would be linked to notes, so for each bill you could have the real document scanned, with all the onenote mojo applied to it (like indexing and OCRing the picture and annotations)

    I can immediately think of many great use cases for this. Finance tracking, stock management, tracking employees, it would be perfect to small to mid business, and it would be so simple to have all that data shared (with access permissions of course).

  5. Touch tap "right-click" issue

    The following issue has been present since the release of Windows 10. A Surface 3 or Surface Pro 3 using OneNote 2013 or OneNote 2016 will at times begin treating touch tap as a "right-click" action. The touch tap "right-click" issue is not limited to the OneNote application but is system wide.

    The common factors for the issue have been
    1. Surface 3 or Surface Pro 3
    2. Windows 10
    3. OneNote 2013 or OneNote 2016.

    The issue is present in the latest versions of OneNote.
    OneNote 2016 v16.0.4229.1024
    OneNote 2013 v15.0.4753.1003

    Windows 10 Home
    Windows 10 Professional "th1 10240…

  7. Default to the current Notebook when creating a Hyperlink

    It would be REALLY useful when creating a hyperlink if OneNote defaulted to the current Notebook rather than displaying a list of ALL Notebooks.

    This would save me every time I want to create a link having to scroll down a list of Notebooks to get to the current one and then expand the relevant sections, etc.

    Maybe a toggle would be better i.e. the current behaviour or default to the current Notebook when the “Link” screen is displayed.

  8. User Experience: Wortweises Markieren nach Doppelklick

    Für die Textauswahl wäre ein gleiches Verhalten, wie in den Office-Produkten sinnvoll: Doppelclick markiert ein Wort, bei Ziehen der Maus werden weitere ganze Worte markiert, derzeit (OneNote 2013) klebt die Markierung auf dem ursprünglich markierten Wort.

  9. rely more on OneDrive folders (all versions)

    So that we can share folders with their corresponding notes, simply opening access to the right users. The files will be smaller and it will sync much quickly

  10. Optionable arrows along a line aka "multiple-arrowheads-along-90degree-line"-shape.

    I use the "arrowline+90degree-line"-shape a lot. But I need it more advanced: I wanna decide how many arrowhead-lines coming out of the original line. Picture a vertical line beginning under the heading and along it three lines with an arrowhead at the end goes out to the right underneath pointing at three subheadings.
    Kinda like if you connected the bullets of a bullet-list with its subbullets.
    It's a great way to visualize the connections in outlined notes.

  13. 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

  15. 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 .

  16. 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…

  18. 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…

  19. 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

  20. [New pages at the top in the pages list] Neue Seiten zu oberst in der Seiten Liste

    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.
