  2. Real-Time Ink Streaming Collaboration

    Dear James Lau,

    Real Time Collaboration is far from "COMPLETED".
    Please let us know what is being done at Microsoft to implement proper real-time ink streaming - real-time as in see the ink come up stroke by stroke as the person writes it on the other end, not having to wait 20 seconds for a block of ink to appear like what is happening now.

    I am referring to support for streaming InkML or EMMA.
    Current implementation is not practical for most applications.
    How long do we have to wait for this?

  3. More sophisticated drawing tab

    A wider array of drawing functions would be a great feature for those who do more sketching in OneNote. Nothing too fancy - it doesn't need to be Photoshop, but some features like these would be a huge improvement:

    1.) The option to have opacity respond to pen pressure as well as the pen's size (for digitized screens like the SP3).

    2.) An erasing that responds to pen pressure. This way pen users don't have to continually readjust the eraser's size when editing work.

    3.) Pencil and fill/paintbucket tools.

  4. Print PDF to OneNote: Documents with mixed page orientation

    If you print a PDF with mixed page orientation (portrait/landscape) to OneNote, the printerdriver turns the pagesgrafiks into the choosen portrait/landscape layout. However . one of both orientations will be turned by 90 degrees always.

  6. merge several pages into one easily

    The scenario could be that I take a bunch of screenshots, which get dumped into the quick notes. I want to be able to consolidate all these separate pages into one, for ease of sharing and manipulation. (e.g. 40 pictures to be regrouped in one page, or 40 bits of text, or what have you)

  7. Maintain hyperlinks in printout

    It would be nice if hyperlinks from word documents and PDFs were maintained when they were inserted as a printout. Right now you have to open the original file, navigate, and click the hyperlink.

  9. Wacom Stylus Support for Windows Tablets

    Work with Wacom to develop stylus drivers and support for Windows capacitive screen tablets (i.e., Bluetooth) just like they do for the iPad, particularly with 1024 pressure-support. Most Windows tablets are not built with Wacom technology like the Surface Pro. 'Vanilla' capacitive-type stylus pens simply don't have the sensitivity required.

  10. Insert Video and take photos in OneNote Desktop on Windows RT

    Please enable OneNote 2013 Desktop on Windows RT to insert video from camera and microphone and take Pictures With Device camera.

    The OneNote Desktop does not support this feature which makes it hard to use OneNote Desktop on Windows RT for flipped classroom and recording of tutoring videos

  11. PDF printouts with multiple pages should have a "flatten to onenote page" which would prevent moving or adjusting the pdf page.

    Currently pdf printouts scroll slowly and load poorly - long printouts need to be optimized. It seems like onenote is handling large printouts like massive image collections.

  12. Using office lens without internet/OneNote

    Office Lens would be perfect if we could also use it without any Synchronisation (OneNote/Internet). If the Picture would just to be found in the Gallery (under saved Pictures e.g.)

  13. Drawing

    Use the fine drawing tool used in other Office programs. The drawing tool in OneNote leave much to be improved. It is not possible to attach ie a circle to a photo. If you insert text over the photo, the photo will move but the circle will stay.

  14. Outlook 2013 export to OneNote change

    Currently there is a sent e-mail to OneNote option in Outlook 2013. I would like to see a option where I can choose where I would like to add the e-mail. On top or at the bottom of a page. I work at a big school right now(35.000 students / 4.000 employees) and everybody creates and edits notes from new(top) to old(bottom) on every page. If they add a e-mail to OneNote the e-mail gets attached on the bottom of the page, we would rather have the option to choose top or bottom.

  15. Fix the pen button on Windows 10/Onenote so that one can select a default Onenote

    The Windows 10 version of Onenote does not allow the user to properly select a default version of Onenote (Desktop or Store [Modern] version) to be activated by depressing the pen button on the Surface Pen. This is a well known issue, but it has yet to be fixed...

  16. Amazing software.. One benefit would be to add extra pen input capabilities.

    An underline shortcut option would be great. Many paint/noting software have a shift underline option (basically while holding shift key or any other key, an creates an underline in drawing mode. For example.. Microsoft Paint creates a straight line when holding down the shift key. This would be great.

    Another suggestion; can your team implement options for a different cursor in drawing mode? Currently, the cursor is hard to see at times because it is so small.. The cursor used in Microsoft Paint is a good example as the pencil tool has a pencil/pen icon which is much more better…

  17. Audio and ink timing syncing like RichReview (or Livescribe)

    Hi

    I was a fan and a user of Livescribe Smart Pen , I loved that pen because it sync my written notes with the recorded audio and display it in a good way

    onenote now has audio recording but it display it and sync it to the audio in a bad way

    you need to make it like this new app from microsoft research , notice how when playing the audio the synced ink is highlighted
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=twSTqxghHNQ

    also you can look at livescribe desktop app and it will give you the same idea

    please make this happen , it's…

  20. Provide a way to suppress the Microsoft Account Sign In prompt

    When launching OneNote for the first time, users are prompted to sign in with their Microsoft account. For organizations using Office 365, this is 1) unnecessary, and 2) confuses users because they try to sign in with their organization credentials, which fail. The user is stuck until they either figure it out or call the help desk.

    I would like to be able to suppress the prompts for signing in with a Microsoft Account while also not preventing users from doing so if they choose to later on.
