  1. 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

  3. Support Full Screen for embedded online videos

    I have only tried Youtube and Stream videos, but as of right now (OneNote Desktop Build 2006) videos cannot switch to Full-Screen, which pretty much makes the functionality useless to me.

    It would be great if one could enable full-screen, because some educational content cannot be properly seen in a small preview, while requiring users to leave OneNote towards the browser kind of defeats the original purpose of embedding those videos.

    This functionality should not be exclusive to the Desktop, but also work on the Web, which is why I've posted an identical item over there. Please vote on both…

  5. Teachers with non school email adress should be allowed to use all features of ClassNotebook

    All teachers don't work in school and don't have a school email address. A teacher with gmail account should also be allowed to create and use all features of class Notebook. why disparity among teachers. OneNote should allow everyone to use classnotebook features

  6. Better accessibility

    Please make Onenote for windows 10 accessible for users with visual impairments


    1. Create an option to adjust default line spacing.

    Please use the MS Word logic for this as the Onenote 2016 was difficult to use.


    1. Option for larger sidebar fonts - my global windows settings are at max but onenote is still too small.


    2. An option to change the fonts and colors of the default header styles:


    3. so that you can still use the text to speech function and it will recognise the headers


    4. An option to change default font colors


    These are the things that would help me,…

  10. features from desktop software

    merge the features of the desktop version from 2016 into the new app. even the little options like inserting the current date and time are missing from the app that are in the desktop version of the software.

  11. Read-only mode

    Dear Microsoft,

    Please add a feature in OneNote to where users can make a NoteBook, Section, Section Group and or Page Read-Only. It's easy to accidentally edit notes when copying them. I want to be able to lock my notes to prevent editing.

    P.S. OneNote 2016 is the reason why I got a Microsoft 365
    subscription. Don't mess this up!.

    Best regards

    Christopher

  15. 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.

  20. layout

    not easy to use the new layout, I use onenote for my presentations online or when presentating and I don't want my clients to see all my tabs. Also selecting the pens was much easier and what happend to the automatic conversion to the circle square etc...I'm always happy to change but here I don't see the benefit
