  1. Issue with using Groups in OneNote ClassNotebook

    Presently if a teacher creates a group and then creates a Class Notebook and in the ADD STUDENTS section she puts the email address of the group instead of listing each student individually, OneNote will create the classnote book correctly for all the students. This is good. HOWEVER - if a student subsequently leaves the class, and the teacher deletes them from the group, OneNote ClassNotebook does NOT delete the student's notebook. this is BAD. Likewise, if a student joins the class after the initial group is created, the teacher can add the student to the group, but a notebook…

  3. Print Site groups in Windows 10 App

    Currently it is not possible to print a Site Group. In OneNote 2016 this is possible.

  4. Blank page

    (ru=>en) It's not so easy to check whether page is really empty. It also happens that the block itself disappears somewhere far beyond the edge of the screen. I suggest to automatically name blank pages "Blank page" with translucent font, instead of "Untitled page". Anyway, non-empty pages get other names, even if the title is still not there...

  6. Find tag like the one exists in OneNote 2106 will be an awesome feature.

    This feature allows to manage the old as time problem of tracking open action items.

  8. Rename OneNote

    We have references to OneNote, OneNote 2016, OneNote app, OneNote for Windows10, and probably others.

    No one can reliably search for solutions for one or the other version because the names are too similar. Why not OneNote v.1, OneNote v.2. or OneNote for Web v.1, OneNote for Windows v.1, OneNote for Android v.1, etc.

  9. Insert screen clipping on new page as default

    Please add an option to insert screen clippings to a new page as default (without having to paste it in yourself) - has to be available through a shortcut

  11. Mouseover text links to reveal screenshot image

    I believe there is a massive benefit to adding ability to choose an image for a thumbnail of a text link.

    How would this work? Right click on a text link and see an option to add an image, capture an image from the link, or take a photo. This adds visual quickness to an often difficult to read list of http://a.samplenotasite.com/article???888^jdhdjnsbvdgvhgjh/adsfjalk/folder/2018/6#f links.

    user defined image when mouseover of a text link in OneNote.

  13. Modify & Add More Controls In The Draw Tab

    Just like in adobe, you have your selected tool, then you hold the control key and the arrow tools becomes active, to move items, to select, then release and continue using the previous selected tool.

    Also, add shortcuts for the options within in.
    For the Type, for the panning hand, the eraser and shapes, or give the option to setup your custom command.
    This will help to save time when working.

    In the shapes' section, having curved or flexible lines would help too when creating diagrams.

    Disabling the "Snap to Grid" option requires researching. It is not that intuitive.
    Even…

  14. Pen Curser is too big

    The idea of writing with the pen in One Note is to have digital paper like feeling.

    In the desktop version of One Note the Pen Curser is very small, it is big enough too see where I erase and small enough that it dint disturb me while writing.

    But in the APP Version the Circle from the Curser is bigger and a cross, and this overlays while writinng too much.

    Please Change the size of the Curser to a minimum level, or add a function to choose betweene different sizes.

    thanks

  15. Add the ability to create and use CSS classes for reuse and share

    It would be very useful for one to write CSS classes which could be saved and reused through my notebooks. That way I can combine a list of properties (colors, borders, effects, anything you can do with regular css) into a class (like "important" or "mySpecialKindOfNote") and have it available whenever I need. And, since it's CSS, those can be very easily shared and improved on.

  16. Pencil Icon redesign

    In One Note 2016 you can add different thickness of your pencil and you instant see a Image of different pencils for quick selection.

    In the One Note APP each Pencil with same Color has the same Image, you have wait few seconds to see the Information of thickness before you choose it, and this takes time.

    So please change the Pencil Image to fast different between different colors and thickness of Pencils

    Thanks

  17. Email Options for OneNote to Gmail that does not include Outlook

    I no longer use Outlook. It's too much work to get GMail through Outlook. After many many years using Outlook, I've stopped using.

    For years I've used OneNote constantly and love it! I would like to be able to share using email without Outlook as a middleman.

  18. Bing Engine

    You should actually have a bing search engine in your Research box. When attempted to use it, it was not there. And you should keep the same settings across OneNote to make it more easier

  20. [BUG] Android-made pages glued to top-left corner

    If I create a new page in OneNote 2016 or OneNote UWP, the page title will be separated from the page border a bit, giving a nice, clean, airy feel to the page. However, any new page created on the Android version will place the title right at the top left corner, creating an annoying inconsistency which also (to my eye at least) just looks worse. Any way to solve this?

    https://filestore.community.support.microsoft.com/api/images/8903d306-eaa0-4880-a42c-017eb35aa504?upload=true

    https://filestore.community.support.microsoft.com/api/images/5022a82e-9907-4bc8-b393-66e55a1f14fe?upload=true

    I also made a test page in OneNote Online, it is formatted properly in UWP. This seems like it's strictly an Android (and possibly iOS/macOS) issue.

    Android->2016…
