    • allow me to save words to the custom dictionary when i'm offline

      I've discovered that I can't add words to the OneNote dictionary when I'm offline; the error says it might be full and to try later - and if later is when i'm online, it starts working again!

      • Have the cursor size for handwriting scale with zoom level

        I noticed that no matter how much I zoom in, the the cursor representing the ink stays the same size. It would be more natural to see the size of the cursor go bigger as we zoom in and have the cursor become smaller as we zoom out

        • Deeper integration with windows and windows phone

          Are you looking for productivity? Do Onenote really deep integrated in Windows 10 (opt-in to avoid EU penalties ;)) so with a shortcut or something like that you can take a fast note with highlighted text, a selected image or a screenshot. Onenote as a ready-to-shot gun.

            • It would be really neat if the user could create editable screentips on a onenote page (store extra info/notes w/out cluttering up the page)

              It would be really cool if the user could create editable screentips on a onenote page so that the note taker could store extra info and take notes w/out cluttering up the onenote page)...

              • zoom level when switching to full screen mode

                When switching to full screen mode, the zoom level should stay the same, also the ability to pinch zoom is nice, but I accidentally found it and it wasn't apparent that it was an available function to me

                • Fix Metro/Modern App

                  OneNote (Modern app) on my Surface 2 (RT) has some visual display problems. Most notably elements of the 'tool wheel' stop displaying properly, sometimes there are gaps. Other times the icons do not appear. This is quite frustrating!

                  • Editing options

                    I would love to see editing options for notebooks, sections and pages coming.

                    For example you could change the name or color or you could relocate a page, or a section. As well as that, there should especially be the posibility to create a notebook or section.

                    This would make OneNote really easy to organize and would close the gap to other platforms apps (e.g. Mac, iPad).

                      • Make the new Update available for everyone!

                        I got the newest version of the OneNote App on my Thinkpad Yoga. Great so far.
                        But it doesn't support the new features (pdf-import, highlighting, ...) described here:

                        WHY?

                        • find

                          Not an idea, but a technical issue. The find function doesn't work properly when it comes to documents inserted onto pages. It will find that words or phrases exist on the page, but highlight a completely incorrect location. It works fine when it comes to typed notes though, just not inserted pdfs or powerpoints.

                          • Problem with onenote 2010

                            Could you try to do this with equation editor in word 2010 and onenote 2010?

                            In word 2010:
                            1.Insert new equation
                            2.write 2+3
                            3.select 2+3
                            4.click on square bracket
                            5.The equation now is [2+3]

                            In one note 2010:

                            1.Insert new equation
                            2.write 2+3
                            3.select 2+3
                            4.click on square bracket
                            5.The equation now is [ ]

                            Conclusion: same step, different equations!

                            I'd liketo use one note for matemathic homeworks but with this bug is impossible: if I want to correct a wrong equation I must to rewrite it.

                            • Fix character mappings in the OneNote Windows Store app

                              I use a non-standard keyboard layout called Colemak and some keyboard combinations produce different characters in the OneNote Windows Store app than in any other Windows application (including desktop OneNote). For example, right alt+[the button labeled K on a qwerty keyboard] is supposed to produce the "é" character, whereas it produces the "€" character in the OneNote Windows Store app.

                                  • Shell.Application FolderFiles menu when right clicking attachment files

                                    We are missing full or partly Shell Folder menu for text file type formats (.txt, .cmd, *.ini, *.reg, *.xml, *.ps1 etc). OneNote only has basic menus: Open, Save As and Rename but missing Edit, Print, Open With.., Open Location, Properties.

                                    We want the ability to Edit none binary files. I assume the implementation in developer perspective is to include Shell FolderFiles object when right click the attachment in the page.

                                    • Windows Store App: Add Page Range to Printing Support

                                      Unfortunately, just like the Mail app, it is not currently possible to print out a range of pages from a OneNote document.

                                      Can the OneNote team please talk to their Microsoft Reader or IE11 colleagues – they have shown that it *is* possible to print out page ranges from within their Modern apps.

                                        • When importing powerpoint slides- new zooming levels stays consistent for all pages

                                          Right now after importing a ppt, changing the zoom level of a page doesnt change it for all the pages. Ex: I change page 2 zoom from 75% to 60%, then click on page 3, the zoom level on page 3 is back to 75%. would like for all pages to be at 60% after i change it on one page.
                                          Please fix asap!
