  2. Change default heading styles

    I would like to be able to change the default heading styles, like in Word where you can "match heading style to selected text".

  4. 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

  5. Custom Styles

    Please allow us to create custom styles. In OneNote 2016 we could set a default font and color... now we can only do font and size. I like to type in red to make it easier to see. very disappointing. can you please allow us to create this custom style or set default settings including color

  6. Make OneNote capable of generating a table of contents with links

    Make OneNote capable of generating a table of contents with links to the individual pages. I would like to be able to generate a table of contents (alphabetically sorted) of the pages in a notebook on a single page. I would also like this same functionality for a top level page (a page with nested pages under it) for the nested pages.

  7. 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.

  9. Add option to "Lock password protected sections after I have not worked in them for the following amount of time".

    OneNote 2016 has the advanced option "Lock password protected sections after I have not worked in them for the following amount of time". Such an option does not seem to exist in OneNote for Windows 10. The features of OneNote for Windows 10 have improved a lot over the past year or so, but having to reenter the password after only 5 or 10 minutes of inactivity is annoying and is the one thing keeping me from switching from OneNote 2016. Please add this feature to OneNote for Windows 10.

  10. 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.

  11. Individualized permission setting for sections/pages

    This is NOT about sharing single pages or sections of a notebook.

    My company requires the ability to set some pages/sections of a notebook to view-only, while others need to retain full edit access.

    This is similar to setting permissions for individual folders within a server. Umbrella permission for the notebook, but the ability to restrict certain sections from being altered.

    It is necessary because templates that are shared can currently be altered by anyone who the notebook is shared with. This is the case for attachments as well, like email header/footers and excel files.

    Please provide this capability.

  12. Immersive Reader should continue reading aloud when changing focus to another window.

    Immersive Reader stops reading aloud when changing the focus to another window, which makes the feature almost useless.

  13. Need paper size options!

    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. It is impossible to export anything from OneNote if I cannot tell where the page ends--it always will format horribly.

  15. 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.

  18. Support local notebook storage. Many companies can't save sensative data in the cloud due to government contract legal requirements!

    Support local notebook storage. Many companies can't save sensitive data in the cloud due to legal requirements imposed by government contracts, so this is not negotiable. Many IT departments also want physical control of backups. This would be so simple to add!

  19. Make it possible to set default saving location in OneNote windows 10

    In OneNote 2016 we had the option of choosing the default saving and backup locations. This feature disappeared in OneNote Windows 10. No the default is in ONeDrive and we have no possibility to change it. Can we please add it back
