  1. Need real PDF editing/reading in OneNote Win10/2016

    OneNote (both for Win10 and 2016) need to include a real PDF reader/editor. Why are we stuck in the 90's still? Importing a PDF as an image is lazy and dumb for any serious user wanting to use OneNote as a solution in business and research. Example features missing: a) unable to select actual text in a PDF in OneNote, though you can search for text successfully? My god, why this huge gap in functionality? Please make OneNote a genuine PDF processor, reader, editor. Otherwise, it's not for serious business or academia.

  3. Enable Auto-Scroll (aka Middle Click)

    On just about every other program I have ever used, the middle mouse click allows enable auto-scroll. This allows one to scroll though a document by simply moving the mouse and not clicking anything or holding down any buttons. It is also pretty much the only way to scroll through documents with a trackball mouse. I and the 20 other trackball mouse users in the world would greatly appreciate this feature.

  4. Paper size

    Hi, recently I decided to start taking notes on my iPad. I was always a fan of Microsoft's apps so I wanted to use OneNote, but I just can not come over the fact, that there is no paper sizes. How am I supposed to print the pages. That is the only reason why i decided to use Notability instead even though i prefer OneNote features. Please fix this.

  5. Adjustable Table Column Width not able to make as small as I want

    Please allow for table column widths to go smaller than what is currently limited to. I am wasting space because I cant reduce the width beyond a set point. I have a column that has a single digit number in every row but I cannot make it less than 6 characters long at size 11 font.

  6. Panning Hand tool

    We really need the Panning Hand Tool. It would be great with a shortcut that activates the tool when holding Ctrl or another key.

  7. Print area selection.

    Please consider "Print area selection" - I'm thinking about something similar to "Snipping Tool" when print. also, ability to set paper size when export as PDF and multiple page arrangement..
    says, if I have a flowchart that is very long, I can just select portion of the flowchart to print, or select the whole chart and select paper size and sequencing of the pagination.

  8. Proofing language bug

    There is a bug where OneNote always sets the proofing language the same as the system's, it ignores the default one. It is pretty annoying because you have to change the proofing language for each text box created in the document.

  10. Better Dark mode support

    Love the Dark mode. It is much easier on the eyes, and makes the use of pencil colors much more rewarding as they pop out more.

    The drawback is that when storing to pdf it changes to white mode again, and all your bright colors become washed in white.

    There should be an option to export from dark mode to dark pages. So WYSIWYG when exporting from dark mode. Or even some kind of color inverse option for those rare cases where you actually need the white background (for printing on paper).

    A color inverse option when importing images would…

  11. Update OneNote UWP to use Webview2

    Since we installed Chromium-based Edge, HTML embeds in OneNote (UWP app) no longer share the session with Edge since it's using Webview. Updating to Webview2 https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-edge/webview2/ would fix this

  12. Maintain formatting when copy/paste into Outlook

    I like to write in OneNote and then copy/paste my note into an outlook email. When I do that, the formatting isn't maintained, ie. bullet points get all screwed up. Why can't it maintain that formatting? I get that there may be some types of formatting that won't translate, but there's no reason a simple bullet point shouldn't. To be clear, I've tried sharing links and sending a copy of the page and neither works well. Sharing link sends a link to every OneNote note I have, and sending a copy of the page doesn't actually work. I can't get…

  15. Mirror content on different OneNote pages

    It would be awesome to mirror content from one page to others. Example: In section A page X I created a table. And I need the exact same table in Section B on page Y. Currently I would have to update the tables manualy on each page. I would love to have a automatic synchronization. Can't be to hard to implement, but a awesome feature

  17. Mendeley integration

    OneNote in my opinion is great for academia, but something crucial is missing: a Mendeley integration! A plugin like the one we can get for word would be already very useful, if one could click the reference and open it on mendeley would be even better.

  18. FIX Korean typing in OneNote

    I am a senior university student and use OneNote daily. My major is Korean, and if you do a search for "Korean" you will find that the issue of trying to type in Korean in OneNote has been a SERIOUS issue since the upgrade from the 2016 version of the program. Letters will be omitted mid-typing and Microsoft's support page could do nothing to help and redirected me here. I used Steps Recorder to hopefully help your team figure out this problem.

    https://1drv.ms/u/s!AjgpFnpeEzGggeoN-zBvyL-9xFsW_Q?e=l1VN5b

    PLEASE address this basic functionality. Not supporting a language in a Microsoft program is embarrassing, and this…
