  2. Adjusting lines (from the shapes menu)

    Previously you could select drawn lines with the lasso tool and adjust their angle by dragging either end of the line.

    Now when a line is selected it gets selected as a fixed object. I can no longer drag it around from the ends, I can only reshape it as if it is a rectangle.

  3. Option to turn off page previews in OneNote Mobile for Windows 10

    I'd like to see an option to turn off the page previews in the page tabs for OneNote Mobile. I have a lot of pages, and the page previews take up space. I end up having to scroll up or down a lot to find my other pages.

  5. ON2016: Bring back lasso select highlight!

    In OneNote 2013, when the lasso was used to select ink, you could see (it was highlighted) which ink would be selected.

    This was really useful when there was a lot of ink close together and you wanted to make a specific selection.

    In OneNote 2016 this doesn't happen. This means that ink, while appearing to be in (or out of) the lasso may in fact be accidentally excluded (or included).

    E.g. draw a rectangle. It is possible to select the rectangle by selecting just three of its corners (not any three, a specific three).
    In OneNote 2013 it was…

  7. Windows Store app: allow choice of favorite colors

    4 quick Pen and Highlighter colors were added to the app a few months ago but I can't believe users still can't specify them!

  8. handwriting function on new lumia phones

    I am pretty sure the new Lumia phone 950xl is big enough to do hand writing with fingers. I am willing for this function appear on my phone so that I can take notes much easily for my study.

  9. Permanent "notes" section

    Have a preset area for permanent notes, that are more difficult to delete. There are some items that are handy to have within onenote notebook, but are permanent, so they should not be easily deleted / overwritten.

  10. Shape tool deselected when used a single time

    In OneNote 2013 you could draw multiple shapes without the shape tool being deselected. In OneNote 2016, you have to click the shape tool for every shape you wish to draw.

    Please bring back the old functionality!

  12. Introduce a new page type that is an excel worksheet

    The ability to have pages that are excel worksheets and can be seamlessly stored side-by-side other pages of notes would enable organisations to move so much more of their content to OneNotes. For example it would be very handy to be able to have the annual budget tables as excel worksheet pages alongside all the supporting notes and content stored in regular pages, all in the Finance section.

  13. Spell checking and formatting for handwriting

    It would be awesome if we could get (optional) spell checking for handwritten notes, since handwriting recognition is actually pretty good in OneNote.
    Also, one thing I constantly do on my Surface in OneNote is underlining handwritten text. Which of course, doesn't result in straight lines. Make it so you can easily select handwritten text and apply the "underline" commands aswell as other, like "bold" or "italic". One should also be able to use the font size +/- buttons, text color changer, highlight color changer etc. Something like underline should also be auto-applied when I try to underline some text…

  14. in-place filtering of outlines via tags

    I would like to add tags to lines in an outline then then be able to filter to show a specifc tag.

    user case would be:
    go though, tag lines with #now
    and the filter and just show #now lines in place.

    basically, the tag filtering in https://workflowy.com/

  16. jumpy ink , on Surface Pro 4 (and every device I try with right to left language)

    the video says it all

    http://1drv.ms/1PJh6MC

    every ink stroke is jumping as soon as I lift the pen , my device info is Surface Pro 4 ,windows10 November update, and OneNote store version with the latest update that have auto detection for shapes

    please fix this very soon because it makes Onenote unusable for anyone with a right to left language (when I go to setting and change the language to English the issue disappear)

  17. Provide a "keep this version" button in one note app when there are conflicting changes on page.

    For when you are taking notes with an intermittent WiFi signal it would be nice to not have to deal with the little banner that comes up telling you to go online to fix conflicting changes. It would be nice to have an option within the app to keep the current version and overide the conflicting changes.

  18. Export to multi-page website with linked attachments

    The ability to export a whole notebook to a multi-page website would be great. Also when this happens have the webpages contain links to actual copies of the inserted/attached files. This also needs to be implemented for the single webpage export. Currently it just removes the attached files and states they were there, rather that having links to actual copies of the files.

  19. Transparent tile option

    There should be a transparent tile option. OneNote is one of the only apps without transparent tile.

  20. Smartboard and Onenote

    Hi.
    Problem with using Onenote with the smartboard - the pen has a lot of lag, joins between two lines of an equal sign and isn't very clear when writing!
    SOS!
