  1. It would be nice to sync all the option settings across devices

    I changed my options to show the pages tabs on the left and a few other things. It would be awesome if all of those settings synced across devices, so I don't have to change them on each device that I use.

  3. Possibility to lock a tickboxes' page !

    Since I use the tickboxes function to validate my shopping list, it would be very convenient to be able to prevent editing the text while ticking the boxes one by one !

  4. "Win10 search box is hiding"

    Win10 Search Box gone from the interface. Put it back! It was on the display to the right of Sections in 2016 (and most previous). Now users have to open a menu to get to find it in OneNote... ???

  5. Add short cut keys used in MS Word. For Me CTRL [ & ] would be handy. To adjust font.

    Add the CTRL [ & } to increase/decrease fonts. Look at other shortcut keys used in MS WOrd as well

  6. Not an idea; a thank you.

    I just wanted to say thank you to the team that developed OneNote 2016, and previous versions. OneNote has its flaws, but before I used it every day, my work day was filled with hastily scrawled Post-Its that I would promptly lose. I'm inundated with miscellaneous information, a problem compounded by the fact that I have the attention span of a butterfly. OneNote is just what I needed. The time and date stamps are so helpful in logging information about who called when, and when I did what. The search, categories, and checkboxes are fantastic. So yes, it has been…

  7. 'Email Page' body should include the Link to Page

    When 'Email Page' creates a body of an email, The name of the page should be a hyper link to the corresponding OneNote Page.

    For a shared notebook, it's easier to access the page in OneNote than to read it in an email client.

  9. Bug: Windows Store App cursor location with multiple monitors

    If you have a main monitor display at 175% and another showing at 100% mouse click will register in wrong location on the secondary display. If you click somewhere, it will place the cursor several lines above. If the tab is scrolled to the top, there is no issue. The further you scroll the more wrong it seems to be.

    I tried the same setup in OneNote 2016, and it does not have the problem.

  12. More tags on PC version

    I currently run Windows 10 on PC but I have to use OneNote online to get full range of tags and symbols. Annoying if I do not have an internet connection at the time

  13. Accessibility Checker

    Having an Accessibility Checker would be extremely helpful, when we all should be sure that we are creating/ sharing accessible materials. If there is one, it should be easier to find/ use.

  17. Quick and and easy way to change the handwritten notes colour

    I really like to see a quinck and easy way to change the handwritten notes colour: at the moment, you'll have to "select with lazo" the word you want to change colour to, then go to "pen proprties" (using the pen button if you dont't have a mouse/touchpad, wich is not so comfortable if you have to change many words), select the colour and click ok. If we could have a button (in the ribbon to add it in the quick access toolbar or in the context menu) to select a default pen colour and then just "lazo select" and…

  19. Share webpage should extract content

    OneNote should extract the Headline and Body copy of the article and offer to save this content as opposed to the current approach of just the Headline and a Screenshot html link. Websites can be changed or shutdown, resulting in the loss of information.

  20. In a classroom notebook could you prohibit students from adding new sections to main area. There are days someone has added 20+ sections.
