  1. I don't like how the Win10 ver has moved the tabs, sections, and sheets to the left side. Please keep them at the top as in the 2016 ver.

    I don't like how the Win 10 version of One Note has changed the user interface, or view, where the tabs that used to be at the top have moved to the far left side of the screen and cascade out from that side. Not only do you lose a lot of screen space, but it is not as streamlined, efficient or functional for users. Please ensure that if the One Note 2016 version is ever phased out, that any new version, including the Win 10 version, will have the ability to switch the user interface, or view, to the…

  6. OneNote: Windows Desktop 2016: Allow Sorting of Page Templates

    Custom templates sort by date created. Would like them to sort by page title so I have some consistency between Notebook/Section Groups/Sections and the actual page template associated with each Section.

  7. OneNote Desktop 2016: Office Lens

    Office Lens images are inserted into OneNote page with a typical date of 5/28/2020 in the title. This titling doesn't sort properly. Suggest and request the dating be configured in the more European style of 20.05.28 so pages will sort numerically by actual date.

  9. FIND & REPLACE Please!!!

    WE NEED FIND & REPLACE.
    It makes no sense that OneNote doesn't have that feature. Even Notepad has that function! C'mon!

    There should be THREE ways to do FIND & REPLACE in OneNote:
    1) For the current tab
    2) For the current page
    3) For the current notebook

  11. 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

  12. Add in ALL OneNote 2016 features!!

    Don't keep going down the Edge path, deploying a crippled app. E.G. being able to insert editable Excel file.

  13. Frames/Border lines and background color in Text Box

    I would very much like to have the ability to add frames/border lines and background colors to the text box. That would greatly improve my organization of different text items in my notes.

  14. layout

    Get Tab separated horizontal layout back
    in the ole versions of one note the was so much promotion on the benefits of the tab separated layout as this was really great. It´s so confiusing that especially this feature is not existing anymore in the newer version. The menu on the left hand side takes too much space and makes the APP unusable for me.

  15. Add Isometric paper overlay

    If you add a few isometric papers overlays it will be greatly beneficial to doing rough sketches in onenote before bringing them to solidworks, or when writing out 3D problems in class (Mechanical Engineering/Architecture).

  17. Export OneNote for Windows 10 pages to MS Word

    Please add back the 2016 feature to export a OneNote page or section to MS Word.

    We use OneNote for note taking and first drafts. However, if/when a note becomes a long term doc that needs publishing, we want to convert to MS Word.

    In OneNote2016, of course, this feature was there. However, on Office365, you can't use online OneNote with desktop 2016 very well. So, we really need the feature added (back) to OneNote for Windows 10..

  18. Don't change colors when printing in dark mode!

    Printing or converting to PDF in Dark mode needs to print things as they appear to the naked eye and not invert them to the light colors prior to printing.
    This needs to at least be a toggleable option.
    Every time I try to print the colors are out of whack!

  19. Reinstate Ctrl+Alt+D shortcut for the new version of OneNote

    On the old version of Onenote there is a shortcut Ctrl+Alt+D that will dock the application. It will be best if the same shortcut would also be available in the new version of Onenote.
