  1. copied text pastes as image in 3rd party applications

    When I copy texts from my OneNote. Either 2016 or the OneNote for Windows 10, it gets pasted as an image.
    I would like this to get pasted as text only. There is no reason why this has to be in a picture format as this is not editable anymore.

  2. Can you please allow multi-highlighting of notebook sections.

    Moving a notebook from one account (my school account) to a personal account was the most frustrating thing I have done in a while.

    It cant be done on the windows app unless you drag and drop each individual section to a new notebook created on the 2nd account. And once that is completed, you cant delete the old notebook on the app either, you have to log into the web browser version to delete a notebook. This is frustrating when you have 30 sections in a notebook (one for each lecture), and moving the notebook takes 5-10 mins.

  4. make text block named, bordered, colored and taged by tags

    Make text block bordered, colored and named or taged by tags. Make a text box - like a container of information with its own name, color, maybe tags.

  5. Bring back docking functionality

    Add docked window mode like in the previous versions, which made it extremely useful.

  6. Add a voting mode for collaboartive work/ workshops

    As people are currently looking for ways to collaborate online I have used One Note for a virtual workshop and it worked very well.

    The one feature that Iwas really missing was a way to let everyone go though the work that was done and provide a way of letting everyone know what they thought was good. What I would have in mind is something similar to features that can be found in Mentimeter, Mural etc. So just a mode that you can enable, and then people can click on an item and it raises a counter on that Item,…

  7. Note reminder!

    I note down things and I want to get reminded at a certain time in the future. Maybe you are in a meeting at the end of the working program and you want to remind about your notes tomorrow morning when you get back to work. Just copy paste that Outlook button or send the note into outlook tasks where you can set a reminder.

  9. Outlook Tasks, etc.

    Need to continue to have all Outlook integration functionality in Onenote for Windows (particularly task creation) if you are going to sunset Outlook 2016. Difficult to understand how it could be a good business decision to do otherwise.

  10. Containers that scroll down the page with you

    I'd like it if you could select a container so it scrolls down the page along with you while reading a document. Why? I can type notes in one place. I don't have to grab the container and pull it down as I go.

  11. Please add the option to insert COMMENTS****

    Although TAG is quite helpful, comments are an essential
    Why do you have it in every App (Excel, Word etc.) but not in OneNote

  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. Desktop version could use a voice to text option

    Please add a voice to text option just like in MS word. This would help us add notes much quickly and make us more preductive.

  15. lock

    Lock Page - It would be good if there was a simple way to right click a Page to Lock or Unlock. This would ensure that the page couldn't be accidentally changed. It is currently too easy to change things on pages and accidentally move or type over something. Ideally it would be locked in a similar way to viewing a PDF. You would then put the Page in to Edit mode to modify and then lock it after finishing.

    Include A4 size page for new version of OneNote (iOS, Widows, etc).

  17. The ability to delete past versions of any page

    When doing a history audit of any page, there is now way to delete any of the previous versions. Please allow this ability, as we may want to present a production copy of our journal for professional reasons and not have past version work lagging along with it.

  18. More Immersive OneNote 2016 and Outlook Integration

    Would it be possible to integrate OneNote 2016 and Outlook some more? I currently import new e-mails & replies into OneNote with the shortcut in Outlook's toolbar, however that just puts the e-mail into a single folder, then you distribute from there to the appropriate project notebook.

    I also write my initial e-mail in OneNote 2016 and add all attachments to the note, then use the E-mail shortcut in OneNote to send it in an e-mail through Outlook. I like how that integration works, even down to how the e-mail signature looks.

    OneNote is also great at dynamically following notes…

  19. find and replace

    Please add a "find and replace" function in One Note (similar in Word or Excel), so we can update the "text " and the "underlying link" (containing the text) across One Note without manually changing each text/link one by one (which is so in convenient and so last century). Please take this enhancement as priority.

  20. synchronization indicator please

    There are many times where OneNote does not synchronize with my mac laptop. I regularly have to go in and force synching. It would be great to have a visible indicator showing synch progress. As it is I have to keep manually forcing a sync if I want to be sure it actually syncs.
