  1. Stop shapes from jumping to top of page

    Sometimes when inserting a shape at the bottom of a long page a notes, the shape will automatically get inserted at the very top of the page. This forces me to scroll back down to where I left off and to start the shape again (which can happen multiple times in a row)

    Please let me know whether this is a bug or something I am doing wrong.

  2. Merge OneNote notes with pull down menu, like or even connected with calendar notes

    Merge OneNote notes with pull down menu of the phone, like the notes made through the calendar.

    When you set up a new note (text) in OneNote, you would select the text/note and decide to show it up in the pull-down menu (as "quick note") or even diretly in the calendar (which is already by itself connected with the notes in the pull-down menu).

    Would be a nice way to show up a note, without the need of opening programs (OneNote or Calendar) and maybe so reduce power consume. and it is even faster and more visible, from my point…

  4. More SmartBoard friendly features

    I am attempting to switch from using Smart Notebook files to present on my SmartBoard to OneNote notebook pages. The ability of my students to access notes and opportunities for collaboration are big pluses of OneNote, but I have seen some drawbacks. Importing a PowerPoint file into Smart Notebook moves pictures and textboxes as individual objects on a page. This allows for further editing prior to presenting. OneNote simply creates an image of the PowerPoint slide which means it can't be edited. I have to manually copy and paste each object from the slide onto a page in the notebook.…

  6. Onenote grabs content of URL

    Sometimes you just have the webpage URL You want to save the URL only. In the background onenote would look up url and get the content. Later when you looked at the note it would have url and content

  7. Images disapearing

    I just spent half an hour taking screen shots of important information and pasted the images side-by-side on a single onenote page.

    I turned to do something else and saw that my onenote page went blank and then only one of the 4 pictures returned. This is unacceptable!

  8. numerical day of the month

    dd/mm/yyyy gives a text day of the week for dd. If it was a NUMERICAL day of the month, OneNote would be usable as a diary.

  10. Add sound when checking off List items

    ToDo lists are satisfying to check as "complete" by clicking the box, it would be great if they had a sound associated with clicking said box. More pavlovian than useful but could popularize productivity.

  13. Indicator for active shape or function

    It would be very useful to have a translucent indicator floating somewhere that shows you what tool is active, especially when trying to draw shapes. Right now there is no way to tell if the next thing you draw will be a shape or a normal line.

  14. Add quiz functionality to embedded Youtube video

    Embedded Youtube videos are cool, but I would like to see OneNote take it a step further! Add functionality in OneNote that makes it possible to enrich Youtube videos with quiz questions. This would be similar to the functionality in Vizia or TED-ed. Benefits that I see: student engagement will increase AND (this is especially important to teachers), students will stay within the OneNote environment!
    Thanks!! (community, please vote for this!) :-)

  17. Manageable layering of drawn stuff

    Like photoshop or illustrator but simpler. I'm going crazy with move to front/back again and again. And not being able to group stuff.

  19. tag invisible

    Like in for example AutoCad you can choose which layers are visible and which layers not, I want this feature also for tags in OneNote. Useful when I send a report of a meeting to a client but I don't want to copy several internal actions.
