  1. Layout

    Absolutely hate the new layout - The new OneNote interface takes up way too much screen space (expansion of all the menu options on the left side of the screen takes up almost half of the display). Please offer the option to switch back to the horizontal layout, or at the very least, allow us to move the menu to the right side of the screen so that our notes don't shift every time we navigate our notebook. I understand the pressure to match competitors (such as, Notability), but to change something that already works well is a terrible move.…

  2. 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...

  3. Copy section group to another Notebook

    Today, you can MOVE a section group to another notebook, but you cannot COPY it.

    User Scenario: We are transitioning a product to another team and our documentation is stored in a OneNote Notebook Section. We are copying our documentation to the new team's notebook and then making updates. To avoid issues during the product transfer, we want to retain a copy of the section group in our current notebook until the transition is complete.

    Note that a similar suggestion called "section group" was marked as complete, but the link to the support site in the user voice idea only…

  5. 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.

  9. 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.

  11. adjusting the paper size

    I really love OneNote and digital notetaking for all my classes and studying. But one thing that throws OneNote far behind Good Notes, Notability, ... is that you simply can't adjust the paper size to A4 (I would like to print my pages). Overall it just looks neater and is better for studying to have an actual A4 sized page. Please do something about it!!

  12. Must have ability to merge and split cells!

    The most popular post that mentioned this was in 2014 and it still is not fixed, so I thought it was worth suggesting again. This seems to be a very basic functionality of a table on any computer program.

  13. Better drawing and shappes tools

    Why not bring the tools for drawing shapes, already built-in in Power Point to OneNote?
    As far as like OneNote for teaching, it is very limited when i need regular shapes and precision drawing.
    i.e. In Power point i can draw vectors and specify its size and direction by setup size and rotation in its properties (with precision numbers), but in OneNote, an arrow its just an arrow without any specific configurations.
    i.e. In Power point, a single line can be shapped in many configurations, that for technical data, can make all the difference.

  14. OneNote Reminders!

    It would be so helpful if I could add reminders for tasks in onenote directly (kinda like how Evernote allows you to). I love that is done through the app so it truly pops up on my screen reminding me that I have a task to do.

  15. autocorrect

    PLEASE bring back autocorrect customization to OneNote for Windows 10 that we had in OneNote Office 16. I used autocorrect to input many symbols in my medical school notes to make things easier to read.

    For example:
    "inc" autocorrected to ↑
    "neg" autocorrected to ⊖
    "primary" autocorrected to 1⁰
    "=>" autocorrected to ⇨

  17. Windows 10 + Office 2016= Useful Product

    It needs to have the same functions as onenote 2016 plus the windows functions. I'm tired of having to use both because neither has all the functions I need. It honestly is baffling that so many features are exclusive to one or the other.

  18. Please include the PDF Export from OneNote 2016!

    The ability to export single pages, sections and entire notebooks into a pdf file is a really helpful tool, that is missed by many users.

  19. Add Page sorting options

    Newest onenote pages should be on top of the list, not bottom, for quick access to more recent content. Or at least add a page sorting feature.

  20. Reminders

    Please implement reminders. They would help make OneNote a complete solution so I don't have to use another application to keep track of the notes I take in OneNote
