  1. Locking Student Pages-Set Time to Lock

    It would be helpful if you could set a page (distributed to students) to automatically lock at a certain time. When you go through Review Student Work and navigate to a page, I would love to see an option "Page Lock Settings". This would help streamline some work for teachers and allow them to set things up ahead of time rather than in real time.

  2. Paper styles

    please add more options for paper styles like dotted paper for clear note-taking in math as well as isometric paper for the many engineering students who use OneNote. Also, borders to show where the print guidelines are would be nice

  3. One Note for Windows 10 lacks many of the basic features available on OneNote 2016

    I'm not quite sure how Microsoft describes OneNote for Windows 10 as the "best version" when it lacks many of the basic features available on OneNote 2016. I'm sure there are several other features missing from this supposedly new and improved version, but I'll list a few problems I ran into that are of absolutely no issue on OneNote 2016.


    1. In OneNote for Windows 10 you can only insert a printout of a PDF. In order to insert a PowerPoint or Word document, etc. you’ve got to first convert the file to a PDF on your own (outside of the…

  4. Add Microsoft Editor to OneNote

    Microsoft Editor is now embedded in Word and Outlook, but can't be used in the OneNote apps. It's greatly needed .

  6. Ability to change heading styles in OneNote

    It's very frustrating to be allowed to change the default font, but not the heading styles. At the very least I expect the heading styles to inherit the default font, even if I can't change the size or color...

  7. Crop in OneNote

    I would like to be able to easily crop or format my images within the OneNote app instead of having to do it in PowerPoint and then copy/pasting into OneNote.

  10. Update OneNote UWP to use Webview2

    Since we installed Chromium-based Edge, HTML embeds in OneNote (UWP app) no longer share the session with Edge since it's using Webview. Updating to Webview2 https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-edge/webview2/ would fix this

  13. layout

    I really hate this new layout for Windows 10. It takes up WAY too much space on my screen in order to see all the files. It was MUCH better when I could see the notebooks and folders all listed in a single row down the left hand column, with the tabs at the top. Who on earth thought it would be a good idea to eat up more screen space to do the same thing? PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE provide the option to go to the old view.

  14. Graph View Like Obsidian.md (Mind map)

    We want your second brain to work like a real brain, so Obsidian encourages you to make connections between your notes. Simply type [[ and Obsidian will auto-complete the link.

    With connections in place, you can navigate your notes and get inspiration with backlinks and graph view.

  15. reMarkable Integration

    Hello,

    reMarkable (see https://remarkable.com/) is gaining in popularity and provides an amazing writing experience in a tablet setting. Could Microsoft work with reMarkable to provide integration support between their device and Microsoft's OneNote? Thanks so much!

  19. Section Tabs at Top

    OneNote 2016 was easier to navigate with the Section Tabs at the top instead of on the side. Please add an option to adjust the location of the Sections tabs.
