  2. japanese

    make keyboard shortcuts to switch back and forth from romaji, katakana and hiragana. Add the option to make big bixes to go around texts. This would make onenote much quicker to use and makes it possible to use in class.

  3. Keep the "Send to Blog" command in future updates; please don't ever remove it.

    Being able to draft notes in OneNote and then automatically send them to Word (in Blog mode) for final editing before publishing is awesome. So rather than suggesting a new feature or idea, I just want to say keep the "Send to Blog" function going. Thanks!

  5. Consistent search results on all platforms

    If you access a cloud folder from different devices, you don't get consistent search results between them. What returns on one platform should be exactly the same on the others. More details here:

  6. Gesture Support for Selecting Commands

    Keyboard Shortcuts don't fit with OneNote if you're using it pen-based, so some kind of stylus-based gesture's would help hard core users. For example: a single short 'tick' mark in the upper right selects a thin pen; two short tick marks selects a thicker pen. Similar gesture in the lower right could switch between pen/highlighter.

    Simplest implementation would be a double-tap gesture to with the pen to open a 'custom commands' window. The window should be free-floating window that opens under the stylus for easy command selection.

  7. Toggle section groups in same screen

    Is it possible to toggle section groups while still being able to see the other sections? Like, simply sliding the contained section tabs open towards the side of the section group, then sliding them back in when you close the group again? Right now, the way it just opens only the containing tabs, it feels like being taken into an entirely different notebook. I recognize that's ideal for some, but I don't want to have to keep clicking back and forth--I just want the ability to minimize a few section tabs I don't use quite as often. Being given the…

  9. Erasing or looping text in the lower half of the screen causes the page to move downwards

    Erasing or looping should only move the screen around the edges and perhaps scale depending on how close you are to the edge.

    The ENTIRE lower HALF of the screen causes a suttle downward page scroll!

  11. Quick toggle for Microsoft Office apps in Windows 10 for phone's action centre

    Get 4 new quick toggles for the action centre in Windows 10 Mobile, one for Microsoft OneNote Mobile (which opens Microsoft OneNote Mobile and allows you to make a quick note), one for Microsoft Word Mobile, and for the other 2, this will be a unique feature for Windows 10 and will make Microsoft Office 10 (or whatever it will be called) better on mobile devices.

    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;

  15. 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!

  16. 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?

  17. 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.

  18. 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…

  19. 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

  20. 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…
