  1. about the file layout

    as you see, now, evernote has better files layout design:
    1, it can show all the long documents name;
    2,it always stays in align ;
    3, it should allow customer to lock within A4 size, but no limitations in the paper length. actually,the word paper layout show move to onenote, it help;

  4. Peek

    I would like it if you could 'peek' at something that you were working on earlier. Instead of scrolling back and forth, you could look at what you were working on, in another section or even on the same page. Kind of like when you are working with paper, you can physically look back at previous pages for reference. I think it'll be useful. Thanks!

  5. Organising and making new notebooks in OneNote for windowsphone

    Give windowsphone users the ability to manage and organise notebooks in the app. I see android users can do this so why not windowsphone which is your own in house OS and you neglect it badly. Please make windowsphone better, at least by putting your best efforts towards it to support it. When your own apps are better on competitors who would buy it?

  6. OneNote on screen keyboard doesn't switch to capitals since update

    Ever since there was a update of the OneNote app the on screen keyboard doesn't switch to capitals when starting a new line or after ending a sentence using a period (.)
    I am sure that an update caused it because when I first noticed it I tried it on another laptop before installing the OneNote app update. Then it worked; after the update it didn't,

    This is not necessarily a feature request, but more a bug notification. However, I mentioned it here: http://answers.microsoft.com/nl-nl/office/forum/office_onenote-onenote_apps/on-screen-toetsenbord-in-onenote-geeft-geen/6d3422f7-c6bc-4ebd-9c3a-31db509f9653 and I was told to mention it as a feature request here.

  7. Handwriting Case Sensativity

    have an option to set all handwriting to either lower case or upper case or Sentence case.

    the current system recognises letters well but fro those of us who print doesn't sort capitalisation well.

  8. The default notebook - Personal (Web) - should have a more inspiring name

    This is a twofold suggestion:
    1.The default notebook should be something that gives more inspiration and direction as to what OneNote can be and do for people, such as "Planner" or such. (E.g. I have a "Personal" notebook and a "Planner" notebook, with the latter full of sections like "To-Do", "Shopping", "Quick Notes", etc.)

    2. Perhaps this is just me, but every time I sign in with OneNote on a new device, it automatically loads that pesky "Personal (Web)" notebook (I think it originally just "Personal" and I deleted it and it created the "(Web)" version when I first tried…

  9. double click on add page area to add new page

    I think that it would be great if I could just double click on pages area to add a new page. it seems much more natural than clicking on Add page button or right click-> new page. You can add option to press escape and instantly delete new page - if new page was added by mistake.

    see example -> http://oi60.tinypic.com/vde4qb.jpg

  10. The new touch OneNote Home tab should look like Word's (with more commands available)

    Comparing the new touch Office apps (Universal apps for Windows 10), and Word has a fully utilized Home tab with more font choices up front (not hidden in the down arrow "more" button), such as strikethrough, highlight, and text color, whereas OneNote buries the font selection (understandably) AND the strikethrough and subscript/superscript buttons. OneNote also lacks a clear formatting button. Word also has a generously-sized area for Styles (Heading 1, 2, 3, etc.) and additional styles that OneNote never has had (Intense Quote, for example).

    It's understandable that hiding those options in portrait mode or snapped mode is required, but…

  11. I would like to be able to share pages or sections between separate notebooks.

    For example,this would allow me to make a master list from smaller lists that are each a part of another notebook. They would be visible without opening a link, but would still link to that page.

  12. Organization.

    If the secondary pages in notebooks were trapped under the main page so you could store them away and thus also open up , it would create more visibility.

  15. Surface - Scrollbar accessability when in inking mode

    I have a Surface and have fallen in love with OneNote! The only issue I have is when I am in inking mode and run out of space on the page I have to exit inking mode, scroll down, and enter inking mode to continue. I would love to have a scroll bar on the right (or left for the lefties out there) which allows you to scroll the page without exiting inking mode.

  16. Provide for moving a notebook location in the list of open notebooks, in the same way that a page or section can be moved

    ie moving where the notebook appears in the list of open notebooks (not changing the actual file location). The problem with a large number of open notebooks (I have > 430), is that dragging an open notebook to a new location in the list takes a long time.

    Alternatively, have a newly opened notebook appear after the currently-selected notebook, rather than at the end of the list.

  17. Back button should work like other wp 8.1 apps

    OneNote app has an iphone-like navigation style, an upper virtual back button. We have a hardware back button so, why don't use it to go back? Currently if I press the back button the app closes like older wp 8 apps, so I suggest to have one note working like a wp 8.1 app.

  18. Educator Ideas

    Add features that interactive whiteboards have, such as document camera support and the ability to project onto a second screen without the tools on the main screen visible and without the need for mirroring a device.

  19. 옛한글 입력 기능..

    현재 onenote 2013에서는 전혀 옛한글이 입력이 안되더라구요..
    2010에서도 플러스 팩을 설치해야 하는데 저 같은 경우에는 플러스팩 cd도 받지 못햇어서 옛한글을 한컴오피스 프로그램에서 입력후 캡쳐해서 쓰고 있습니다...
    옛한글 입력기능좀 살려주세요.
    아니면 기본 IME 자체에 탑재하면 좋을 것 같은데 그러지도 않네요;ㅜㅜ

  20. OneNote 2013 desktop please improve the visibility of the note name

    OneNote 2013 when in full page view and ribbon set to auto hide does not make it easy to identify the current note active.

    The drop down to select other notes is not wide enough to see the note name.

    It would help if OneNote 2013 full page view with auto hide ribbon enabled would display the name of the note in the minimized ribbon. There is quite a bit of unused space before and after the three dots in the minimized ribbon not utilize.

    Working with multiple OneNote windows active other methods have to be used to check the…
