  1. Ability to move Lotus Notes documents to OneNote

    I understand that today, OneNote has good integration to Outlook, but my primary email client is IBM Notes (earlier called IBM Lotus Notes). OneNote can be a good reference database, if there is a way to directly create a formatted note from a rich document in Lotus Notes.

  2. OneNote Should allow same concept of folders on harddrive

    I am new to OneNote and have a hardtime converting my local files up to OneNote. The major problem is that once I created a NoteBook and Section everythingelse comes as a page. There is no way to easily change the NoteBook name to a Section.

    This is difficult when planning my notes because I do not know if a subject I am taking notes will turn into a main folder(section) and how many sub-sections will it need.

    Having NoteBook -> Section -> Pages. is not enough for me.

  3. Audio, Powerpoint, Handwritting Sync

    For educational use, there needs to be a way to sync the audio with the handwritten notes taken on a powerpoint presentation, and have this able to be played back in OneNote. Powerpoint often provides animations and other things that can only be represented through powerpoint. So my suggestion is allowing the user that takes written notes or draws on the powerpoint as it is given or advanced, to be embedded into a OneNote page. This would be different than screen recording because hopefully it would take a lot less storage to just have audio tied to handwriting on a…

  4. Improve the visibility of small pens for graphic tablet users

    I am using a wacom tablet to write and draw in my oneNote notebook. Unfortunately it is really easy to lose the position of the cursor and so I have to search for it before I can go on with work.

    Just look on the picture on the following link to see what I mean:
    http://postimg.org/image/gcjcs6q7p/full/

    It would be great if you could make small pen sizes more visible like adobe does in photoshop.

  5. Organize receipts

    I would love to see a better receipt organization on OneNote. We should have a pre-defined page(s) where all of the receipts we capture through Office Lens displayed in a thumbnail view and clickin/taping on a receipt will make it full size for better viewing.

  6. allow scrolling when printing pdf's or other large files to onenote.

    When I print a pdf to onenote it places each pdf page into a separate page in onenote. That prevents the user from scrolling through the doc easily and makes it much less user friendly. If the document is 30 pages I have to manually click on each page to advance through the document

  8. Integrate OneNote with Cortana

  9. Add line smoothing in handwriting on Surface 3 and Surface Pro

    On iOS, many stylus focused writing apps such as "GoodNotes" feature some form of "trajectory smoothing" for handwriting strokes. This makes handwriting look more natural when using a passive or active stylus where usually the friction of the pen and screen combination is different from pen and regular paper. All this can make handwriting look vastly more natural.

  10. [bonding of objects] Bindung von Objekten

    Die Zeichnungsmöglichkeiten in OneNote hinken weit hinterher. Es wäre überaus hilfreich, wenn man gezeichnete Objekte aneinander "binden" könnte. Also z. B. die Pfeilspitzen an Kästchen.

    Momentan muss man einen Prozess perfekt im Kopf haben, um sich nicht endlos viel Arbeit machen zu müssen. Will ich einen Prozess erweitern und zwei Kästchen verschieben, dann muss ich auch die Pfeile verschieben. Das kostet in einer Online-Besprechung echt viel Zeit.

    Schön wäre es also, wenn sich besonders Pfeilenden (und Anfänge) mit Objekten verknüpfen lassen und sich dann mit verschieben, wenn ich ein Objekt verschiebe.

    Lieben Gruß

    Ingo

  11. Onenote on Surface Pro 3 Feedback

    First I would like to congratulate Microsoft for Surface Pro 3. For me it's a perfect hybrid (although I would have liked the back of the chassis to be scratch resistant, wifi and battery to be more robust, the border of the frame to be as thin as possible so to be more street friendly and a few other things). The screen size is just perfect for for any task on the go and at home. The first windows device that I feel I can use to Ink.

    Anyway, about Onenote (Modern UI). I've been using the iPad to take…

  12. Keep existing links when pasting a printout

    When you insert a printout of a file (usually pdf) or a web page you lose all the links from the source.

    I know currently the printouts are handled as images, but it would be nice it they had some special format (at least when inside onenote) that preserved those links.

    Then it would be possible to print and entire pdf document and use the links to navigate between pages, or when exporting an webpage the links would be still alive so you can expand your research.

  13. 1 Button camera app option and better cameras in windows tablets for taking picture of the board or scanning

    If you are a student in class and want to take a picture of the board very fast in either desktop or metro onenote, there should be a button to do that. And better cameras on windows tablets.

  14. Timeline tagging when recording studio or video

    When recording video or audio it would be great to have a timeline with tags that you AF to the timeline to mark specific parts of the recording. You could then use the tags to Juno to those specific parts of the recording.

  15. Have a photo I take in OneNote automatically save to my camera roll using a Surface.

    Right now if I take a photo in OneNote, it only saves as an image in OneNote.
    If I want to share these photos, I have to save them one-by-one to my camera roll.
    It would be so much easier if they just saved automatically in my camera roll AND in my note in OneNote.

  16. Printable Page Layout

    Windows journal has a very good page interface that would be nice to see available in OneNote. This feature/option to have a multiple "scroll-able" smart page layout like journal or word would be preferable in many instances. (i.e. doing homework which may have to be printed for submission).
    It's also nice to have access to those pages with out having to set up a separate page within the notebook. When I want to go and print either to printer or PDF, it would be nice if I didn't cross my imaginary margin and end up with half a word or…

  18. Allow OneNote to act as a Form to replace InfoPath

    Allow OneNote to act as form to collect data in a standardized way so users can add a new page with the form template to collect data in a standardized way. This form could then be linked to from the backend to store information into a database, SharePoint list, etc.

  19. allow note linked audio recording across a multiple page printout.

    We are either stuck with a long page of images that is unprintable, or multiple page printouts with a crippled audio recording feature. Fix one or the other. Allow the linked recording feature to span multiple pages PLEASE.

  20. Windows Phone: Sync, Create, Assign, Search Tags

    a) I would like to have the ability to assing an existing (or create a new) Tag to a note in a page,
    b) Also that the list of possible Tags to use is syncronized with my desktop application. This means I can use the same tags on every device, or If I create a Tag in the Phone, it is also availbel for use in my pc or other device where the same notebook is being accessed.
    c) and also I would like to have the possibility to have a Tag search or summary section where I could display…
