  1. I process large, complex telecom and data orders. I need sub-notebooks just like sub-pages so I can breakout the customer and cities

    When processing large orders for telecom, I need to have a notebook for a customer and then a sub notebook for the city or address for each location. Then, as documents come in for the customer/city, I can post them to the proper place. As it is now, I have to send to the customer's notebook and then reorganize the page to keep addresses or citys grouped together.

  2. Easy toggle off red lines.

    When i use OneNote for school, i often get a lot of red lines, because i use special terms, that are not in my native language.
    An easy way to toggle off red lines, by right-clicking on the notebook and enable/reenable it, would be perfect.

  3. [Delete/Edit speed] Löschen/Bearbeiten Beschleunigen

    Häufig möchte man einige alte Notizen schnell löschen. Allerdings geht das nicht so einfach, denn beim Aufrufen von Onenote werden die Notizen bis zu 20 Sekunden lang synchronisiert - auch wenn es keine Änderungen gab. Das ist nicht nur nervig sondern hindert auch das flüssiges Arbeiten.

  7. ONenote as personal web site

    Using One Note as personal web site. It works except the navigation.

    I use One Note 2013 and have worked out how i can share the Web copy with public users. However One Note needs some help in that area. Mainly the left pan where one would select different sections on note book or different pages on the note book.
    What happens is that the Left Pan gets expanded automatically and makes it hard to navigate. IT would be very beneficial if the web version of the One Note would act like the desktop version in regards to the navigation…

  8. Better integration of simultaneous use of phone app and desktop version.

    I would like to be able to take pictures (videos, audio recordings, drawings, etc.) with the one note app on my phone and comment on it directly on my computer, then take another picture on my phone within the same page and keep on taking notes, but this process proves to be tedious most of the time. All I get is syncing problems when I work heavily in this way.

  10. Add options for search-folder picker

    when 'sending to OneNote' or doing a move/copy operation, there is a search-folder-picker dialogue that comes up. Please ad an option to 'send to section'. Why??? I have very large notebooks with many many sections. I frequently find the section where I want something to go by searching for key words on pages in the section. The search shows me the name of the section and then I search for it. What I would like is to eliminate the need for one of the searches by adding a button to 'send to the section that the selected page is in'.…

  11. Censorship Concern (auto-correct)

    This is a small example of a potentially larger issues with autocorrect. I am a student in a psychology graduate program and was typing notes in class on my surface pro 3 using the OneNote modern app (which I absolutely love). I was taking notes on OCD, and had to type the word porn, which autocorrected to poon. I just noticed too that I may have jumped the gun because it just autocorrected the word to poon again in this comment box, so it could be a windows 8 issue, but I don't have the time now to test it…

  12. Allow the OneNote notebook display name to sync with the internet explorer link that is saved on OneDrive

    The current settings for OneNote do not sync the display name of your notebook with the link that is save on your OneDrive. Even after moving a notebook to a new folder location within the OneDrive, the notebook will keep the display name that was used upon creation of the notebook. If you do want the name of the notebook and the saved link to match you must manually change the name of the link that is saved on your OneDrive. Unlike the other microsoft office apps, the OneNote files do not have a OneNote icon when viewed from the…

  14. More intuitive UI button mapping suggestion

    For the Surface pro 3 and other penned devices like Galaxy note 3 let the pens hardware eraser button instead toggle between the two circle menu types.

    Under the current set up it limits the workflow requiring a mouse, finger touch or keyboard tap to bring up the secondary text menu, this is .... well stupid.

  15. Holding the start button to create a quick note

    On the surface 2 or other windows devices with the "touch start button". It would be nice if you can press and hold that to open a quick note rather than looking for the app then opening it then creating a new page then typing/writing the note. I think this would be better because it is a quicker easier way to open a quick note.

  16. Move equation cursor to first box of e.g. superscripts

    When entering an equation and I choose something from the design bar (e.g. a super- or sub-script or a large operator), it would be great if the cursor got moved inside of the left-most box so I could start typing right away, rather than having to first move the cursor. In the included image, I'd like the cursor to start where the arrow is pointing, instead of where it is.

  17. Integrate File Explorer in Pages for all systems

    I see a need to have the ability to have and insert File Explorer similar to Table or Excel object into in any page.

    Having this ability would make a great improvements in gathering information and links in OneNote

    This functionality should work on Windows and on Windows Phone and I assume other devices/OSes as well. Hopefully Microsoft could make this function available as an Add-on to existing OneNote 2007/2010/2013 in i that way could test and improve until implementing it permanently on future versions of OneNote

  18. Search hyperlink under the text

    Hello. I like OneNote very much, and that is why I'd like to suggest one more important thing to improve it.
    Search should to look not only for the text in all books, but also among the links under the text!
    You may look this short video to understand what i mean http://goo.gl/QA8N7y
    With best regards, Ivan

  19. Improved exporting to single file webpage (mht)

    Currently when the file is exported, the different headers are individually formatted with the font characteristics on each line. It would be nice if they also included a class attribute. For example, class=h1 for all paragraphs in OneNote that were formatted with the Header 1 style.

    Additionally, it would be nice if OneNote id'd each paragraph in the document with a unique ID - that way, the file could reference the different parts of a document with a url. It wouldn't need to be the whole GUID each paragraph receives within the program, just the portion of the reference seperates…

  20. May have already been suggested but my three are list related

    1) list view summary option like EverNote snippet view
    2) better custom tags to make it easier to search
    3) option to show tags at end of title on lists
