  1. onenot

    I purchased a surface and it came with onenote installed. I also had a supscription to office 365. Due to this I installed onenote 2016. The problem is that the two don't sync. I called IT and they got some of the sync sorted out, however in order to use the share or snyp feature, I have to use both. you can not share or snyp to onelook 2016. this needs to be rectified.

  3. Provide Sync Priority Options or Prompts on Devices

    Let’s say you start updating a page on your mobile device. The first thing that happens when you open the page is a download of the most up to date version. Then you start to edit the page on your mobile device. Upon the next sync, the content on the mobile device ought to take priority over that on the cloud and on your desktop if you have that as well.

    When you move from one device to another, the system ought to prompt you telling you that your sync priority is about to change to the new device you…

  4. Show zoom level when zooming using Control / Ctrl + mouse wheel

    Without this, one cannot see on-screen whether the zoom is back at 100%

  5. Inserting printouts

    Currently inserted docs are "portrait" orientation by default. To insert a landscape oriented document requires a change in the print preferences for the onenote printer. Would be great if this function occurred automatically based upon the orientation of the document being inserted.

  7. OneNote, as now constituted, is very close to giving the user an OVERVIEW of notebooks/contents

    Enhance "naming and grouping notebooks" into "overview" ... like a "summary view of book" in a "table of contents" ...
    One progressive WORK, under development, changing with each ADDITION. An enhanced VERSION of "mind mapping". YES????
    "Graphical???" "Library Management" ... a depository of great diversified LEARNINGS. SuperNOTE, SupraNOTE.

  8. OneNote 2016 does not open attachments by touch or pen

    My OneNote 2016 will not open attachments by touch or pen input. The only way my Surface Pro 4 can open an attachment in OneNote is to attach a keyboard or mouse. I assume this defect is not by design. So please fix it. Other some other Office programs do not have this defect.

  9. Provide the facility to export metadata in PDF format

    We are using OneNote as a log book. One of the great features is that one can see who made each entry and when. However, if one exports the file to anything other than a .one file all that information is lost. We want to be able to archive the notebooks in PDF format with that data preserved.

  10. Windows maps share button, add copy location to clipboard (bingmaps:///?&FORM=...) to easy compose trip plan


    1. In Windows 10 mobile open windows maps

    2. Find location on map -> click Share button -> System copy location to clipboad (bingmaps:///?&FORM=...)

    3. In OneNote just paste location to your trip plan

    4. If I click on location in OneNote, system opens windows maps application

    Or tell me how to accomplish this task? Because right now, what offers windows maps under share button (Share -> OneNote) in windows maps is useless rubbish.

    Thank you.

  11. a frame you can look through to a pdf-Dokument

    so you must not loose information when you make a Screenshot.
    the frame is direktly a Window and a Link to the Pdf or html-site.

  12. 온노트 손글씨

    서피스프로4 사용중입니다. 온노트에 손글씨를 쓰면 간혹 일부 글씨가 위로올라가 다른글씨와 겹쳐지는 일이 발생합니다. 해결방법이 없을까요?

  13. Change Theme options

    I'd love to customize Styles and Tabs. I'm not talking about in depth font settings, tab sizes, or add-in support. I just want the simple feature of choosing from a small list of custom textures or colors (like outlook only better because lets face it, those themes are all business and no play. :/)

  14. Why is there no UNDO in Windows Phone??? Or a function to Select All???

    It is SOO MUCH fun to lose ALL your work because there is no Select All function to copy to put in another document (do not have the ability to share what I have compiled with someone who does not use OneNote) and have to hold down to expand your selection only to have the touch keyboard hiccup and overtype they selection you are still trying to expand and replace PARAGRAPHS with a couple of letters... And then have NO UNDO function to restore your work that was mistakenly overwritten.... and have no versioning to be able to restore to…

  15. Please fix mis-translated function (Danish)

    The Danish translation for "Make Subpage" is wrong, should be "Gør til underside"

    The current Danish text is "Opret underside" which means "Create subpage", but that is not what the function does. The function turns an existing page into a subpage which is why "Gør til underside" is correct

  18. Kill ON? Easy! Paste from VBA: Private Sub Workbook_BeforeClose(Cancel As Boolean) Sheets(1).Cells(1, 1).Value = "" End Sub

    Crash OneNote immediately? Easy!
    Paste this code from Excel VBA Editor:
    Private Sub Workbook_BeforeClose(Cancel As Boolean)
    Sheets(1).Cells(1, 1).Value = ""
    End Sub
    For me this kills OneNote. Pasting the code into notepad, copy again and paste into OneNote works, though.

  19. Save buttons

    Would it be possible to make [ctrl] + [s] act as a sync as well as (or instead of) [F9]?

  20. There are a lot of companies using

    I wan't a opportunity to use Onenote and excell online together. It should sync seamlessly between different users on different devices. Also the screenshot when you update.

    The problem today is that when you update an excell sheet in onenote, the screenshot is updated on the device your'e currently using, but not the other accounts and devices.
