  3. Make it possible to set default saving location in OneNote windows 10

    In OneNote 2016 we had the option of choosing the default saving and backup locations. This feature disappeared in OneNote Windows 10. No the default is in ONeDrive and we have no possibility to change it. Can we please add it back

  4. Send to OneNote from Outlook

    Outlook allows me to "copy" an e-mail via "Send to OneNote" into a page. This is only working with the OneNote 2016 desktop app. It would be great if I could send an e-mail to the UWP OneNote app.

  6. Please create backup in windows 10 version.

    We are using one note to record important phone conversations.

    We are currently manually making a copy of the file to prevent against a staff member deleting the entire notebook.

    It would good to have protections against this by creating a backup automatically so we didnt have to do it manually.

  9. Support local notebook storage. Many companies can't save sensative data in the cloud due to government contract legal requirements!

    Support local notebook storage. Many companies can't save sensitive data in the cloud due to legal requirements imposed by government contracts, so this is not negotiable. Many IT departments also want physical control of backups. This would be so simple to add!

  10. Rotate inserted PDFs

    It would be really helpful if you could rotate inserted PDFs in OneNote. Currently, the "Rotate" button is grayed out.

  11. find and replace

    Please add a "find and replace" function in One Note (similar in Word or Excel), so we can update the "text " and the "underlying link" (containing the text) across One Note without manually changing each text/link one by one (which is so in convenient and so last century). Please take this enhancement as priority.

  12. page templates

    Please add the OneNote 2016 Page Template management features to the OneNote 10 version. The ability to select and customize templates is a handy feature.

  15. All-on-the-left layout is inefficient

    All-on-the-left layout is inefficient - esp. when you have multiple sections and pages that you are jumping back and forth. All-on-the-left layout, compared to the 2016 layout, simply takes too much space if they are all being displayed. Having "Sections" on top helps a lot.
    This is the most important reason I switch to OneNote 2016 from the OneNote app. Sad to see 2016 is being dumped.

  17. I don't like how the Win10 ver has moved the tabs, sections, and sheets to the left side. Please keep them at the top as in the 2016 ver.

    I don't like how the Win 10 version of One Note has changed the user interface, or view, where the tabs that used to be at the top have moved to the far left side of the screen and cascade out from that side. Not only do you lose a lot of screen space, but it is not as streamlined, efficient or functional for users. Please ensure that if the One Note 2016 version is ever phased out, that any new version, including the Win 10 version, will have the ability to switch the user interface, or view, to the…

  19. Review Student Work in Sections WITHIN SECTION GROUPS

    While I can distribute section groups now, I still can't review pages that are in sections within section groups in student spaces. This nullifies the point of being able to distribute section groups to student spaces.
