  1. Would love an option to dock the "Draw" tab on the side, and to have the draw tab always-open in Full Screen mode!

    Having the option tabs dockable on the side would be fantastic for preserving vertical space while working! I personally would love to see this feature in the whole Office suite, it would help me quite a bit.

    Full Screen mode is great for maximizing space and workflow, but it can be quite hindering to click the option tray at the top just to switch colors. It slows me down quite a bit. If the "Draw" tab was given an "always open" option in fullscreen mode, I believe that would solve the problem!

    Thank you, MSFT!

  2. Do NOT make OneNote the default for printing when you release an update.

    I realize you don't care about your customers but your updates are getting more and more disruptive--to the point of almost making my machine dysfunctional well before its 3rd birthday.

  4. Bug: Fat lines and context menu opens when writing

    If i write small signs or text the context menu opens constantly.
    If i draw a line, the line is always fat.
    If i draw a second line and press Strg-Z (Back), the first line gets thin.

    It appeared after the Fall Creators Update

  5. Indicate Eraser Type in Toolbar

    I like the idea of separate buttons for Eraser & Stroke Eraser, but if the separate buttons suggestion doesn't happen, it would at least be nice to know which one I am currently using. I seem to remember seeing a little indicator on the lower right of the button that does this in a previous version (although I could be wrong).

  6. Make the OneNote app work properly on WIndows 10

    I used to use OneNote in my old job. Our Company used it widely for sharing ideas, meeting notes, etc. and found its lack of the more formal constraints found in Word and easy access by all very useful. However, having bought a brand new Windows 10 PC, I just cannot get the app to run (or Sticky Notes, or the Solitaire collection). I've tried Microsoft help and got to the "we have to reinstall WIndows" stage - not an option I'm afraid! I've been on forums and found other people seem to have the same problem. I'm convinced it's…

  7. can't see where i'm writing

    There needs to be an option where the mouse curser is shown instead of a pen tip. I don't have a touch screen laptop and i can't waist time in class trying to find the pen tip

  10. Equation editor BUG

    In the equation editor after typing either \bigcap or \bigcup the symbol gets shofted to the right so that it overlays with the formula that‘s written in the unification/cut. This does make a lot of text unreadable. Here is a forum entry from someone else having the issue and me commenting on it:

    https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/forum/msofficeonenote-msowin10-mso_365hp/issue-with-the-set-operationsformula-on-the/077446a6-fefd-44ac-bb01-6ef8eca04e93?messageId=650dfddb-b37f-4e5c-864d-eac67d8872c9

    I hope that this will be resolved some time soon.

  12. Quicker launch

    My OneNote for Windows 10 is very slow to load. I would like it to load more quickly, like my OneNote for Office that I have at work. I would also like the tabs on top, like my OneNote at work. Since versions have been coded both ways, it should be easy to make this a user option....

  13. Allow pictures from a secure web page to be posted as easily as the text

    After pasting a section of an httpS page that includes text and pics, you watch OneNote wipe out the pictures and you go to the page and copy the pictures one at a time into OneNote.
    Except, first you find that you have to first paste the picture into some other program and then you can copy it from there and paste it into OneNote.
    It's enough to make you forget about pictures and just focus on the text.

  19. bring back previous onenote products because the 2016/365 sucks.

    Bring back previous Onenote products because functionality has been dumbed down and is now just a glorified word pad. For example, ctrl+K does not allow for internal linking between notes and notebooks.

  20. Do not enable by default "Send to OneNote Tool". Not everybody use it and it is hard to remember how to disabled it on every Office instance

    This feature is not desired by everybody and it is a waste of time to find online the instructions on how to disable it, specially for people who has multiple installations of Office 365.
