  1. adjusting the paper size

    I really love OneNote and digital notetaking for all my classes and studying. But one thing that throws OneNote far behind Good Notes, Notability, ... is that you simply can't adjust the paper size to A4 (I would like to print my pages). Overall it just looks neater and is better for studying to have an actual A4 sized page. Please do something about it!!

  3. Better drawing and shappes tools

    Why not bring the tools for drawing shapes, already built-in in Power Point to OneNote?
    As far as like OneNote for teaching, it is very limited when i need regular shapes and precision drawing.
    i.e. In Power point i can draw vectors and specify its size and direction by setup size and rotation in its properties (with precision numbers), but in OneNote, an arrow its just an arrow without any specific configurations.
    i.e. In Power point, a single line can be shapped in many configurations, that for technical data, can make all the difference.

  6. Windows 10 + Office 2016= Useful Product

    It needs to have the same functions as onenote 2016 plus the windows functions. I'm tired of having to use both because neither has all the functions I need. It honestly is baffling that so many features are exclusive to one or the other.

  7. Sort pages within a TAB

    It would be awesome to have the ability to sort pages inside a TAB alphabetically.

  8. Must have ability to merge and split cells!

    The most popular post that mentioned this was in 2014 and it still is not fixed, so I thought it was worth suggesting again. This seems to be a very basic functionality of a table on any computer program.

  9. autocorrect

    PLEASE bring back autocorrect customization to OneNote for Windows 10 that we had in OneNote Office 16. I used autocorrect to input many symbols in my medical school notes to make things easier to read.

    For example:
    "inc" autocorrected to ↑
    "neg" autocorrected to ⊖
    "primary" autocorrected to 1⁰
    "=>" autocorrected to ⇨

  10. OneNote Reminders!

    It would be so helpful if I could add reminders for tasks in onenote directly (kinda like how Evernote allows you to). I love that is done through the app so it truly pops up on my screen reminding me that I have a task to do.

  11. The ability to Mention a Team Member with @Team Member

    Have the ability to mention someone in your team who has access to the notebook, for example adding @Richard as a comment would send a notification to Richard, allowing him to quickly navigate to a notebook page and look at the issue. This feature is present in most other Microsoft apps, please include it in OneNote, it would be a game changer.

  12. Enable multiple selection when inserting documents as printout

    Neither via the menu with "Insert" -> "Printout" nor by drag and drop is it possible to add multiple documents as a printout at the same time. If you want to insert a lot of documents in this way, it is a time consuming process. Please enable multiple selection in order to be able to insert several documents into OneNote as printout at the same time. Thank you.

  14. Features missing including paper size

    The infinite paper size being the only option forces me to keep using OneNote 2016 or a simple pdf editor instead of OneNote for Windows 10.
    No paper size system is perfect for all uses, so there a range of variations have been adopted for various situations and industries and you still decided not to put this feature on onenote for windows 10 which makes it useless for use
    Choosing a size is one of the most common future that is used on onenote
    HoweverIt is impossible to export anything from OneNote if I cannot tell where the page ends …

  15. Add Comments/Notes/Tool Tips to OneNote

    It would be great if Microsoft could add ability to add a comment or note or tool tip--something that appears when I hover over a word with my mouse. Similar to adding a comment/note onto a cell in Excel.

  18. Please include the PDF Export from OneNote 2016!

    The ability to export single pages, sections and entire notebooks into a pdf file is a really helpful tool, that is missed by many users.

  19. Reminders

    Please implement reminders. They would help make OneNote a complete solution so I don't have to use another application to keep track of the notes I take in OneNote

  20. Paper size

    PLEASE make an option to change the infinite canvas to an A4 paper size. I don't see why this was an option in One Note 2016 but not in the current version. This loss of functionality is extremely inconvenient.
