  3. alphabetize

    Please add the ability to alphabetize pages within OneNote just like folders in Outlook. I love the app and use it daily. It keeps my brain from melting... thanks! :-) - JC

  4. Please, fix the proofing language bug.

    Onenote automatically uses the keyboard language. Very frustrating when editing or taking notes in a different language. It baffles me why this is not fixed.

  5. Ability to group/ungroup items/drawing objects

    Enable collections of objects to be grouped together to stop subsequent alterations to the note destroying existing relationships.

    For instance after importing a picture and annotating it using draw tools. Enable the picture and the annotations to be grouped together as a single object so that subsequent upstream alterations to the note don't randomly move the content around destroying the relationship between the annotation and picture.

  6. Bring back ability to take voice-to-text notes

    As a minimum you should be able to carry out control functions within MS Office using Cortana. eg open a new note and voice dictate into it.

    Integrate OneNote Mobile app with Google Voice Assistant/Siri so the same functionality occurs via mobile devices.

    The demand for voice command is only going to grow, MS risks being cut out of the loop if it continues to drop functionality, speaking as a confirmed OneNote user who is about to start using Google Voice and Keep

  7. sync error message

    Improve sync error messages.

    Error on OneNote 2016 says "can´t sync this notebook because you don´t have sufficient storage space in your onedrive account" but it turns out this was incorrect - the notebook was owned by someone else and shared with me, and it was the owner who had run out of space, not me! Very confusing and could be improved so I don´t spend hours on chat support wondering why it is telling me I have no space left when I have 150GB free!

  8. Print selection

    Hi
    In the latest one note edition, there is no feature of printing selected content within a page. The only print option is that of an entire page. Please enable the option to select and print required portion of a page in one note

  9. 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

  11. 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.

  12. Disable Snap to Grid on Windows 10

    While drawings can be made anywhere, images and text boxes always snap to an invisible grid, making it impossible to create certain diagrams and layouts. I just learned that this issue can be circumvented by holding the Alt key while dragging an object. Please add a toggle in the settings to switch off the snapping feature entirely.

  13. Increase the subpage limit

    Onenote is an amazing tool for notetaking. I would love to have more subpages available. I find myself constantly needing atleast 5 to break down topics. As I am learning, I like to save narrow down subjects to specifics. A higher limit in subpages would allow me to expand my capability in notetaking that would allow me to further excel in my research, along with me falling in deeper love with Onenote and microsoft!

  15. 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.

  16. Back up

    I'd like to have the option to back up my one note to an external drive. I'm paranoid with losing things I have worked on, and I like to be able to have multiple sources of where I can back up. The OneDrive is great and all, but I'd also prefer to be able to save to a USB.
    I just want to BE EXTRA SURE I don't lose my grad school workbooks because I couldn't back it up to an external drive.

  18. make drawing ink color customizable

    I think it would be great if OneNote gave us a color wheel to customize colors of our pen and highlighter ink (next to the other colors add a "more colors" button that leads to a color customizer)

  19. Fill shape with color, Pointer, Polygon tool

    Hi, I am a maths teacher based in India and is using Onenote to teach in this Pandemic situation, Thank You microsoft!. Onenote is usually great however at times I find myself constrained with missing tools/features while taking classes.

    Example:


    1. I would like to have a "pointer" option, so it would be easy for students to understand/locate the things I am referring to on the screen


    2. There is no "fill color" option, hence difficult for students to grasp concepts like Lines and angles, Triangles and circles.whereas in school board we would mostly highlight the shapes we are referring to and…

  20. Send Page via Outlook Email

    OneNote 2016 allowed users to send a page via e-mail after it was created. This is absolutely critical for users that leverage OneNote to capture notes from meetings to send those notes out to all attendees (many of whom, especially leaders, do not use OneNote). Currently, when the "Share" button is clicked, and "Send a Copy" selected, only Twitter and Windows Mail show up as options for sending e-mail. For companies that require Outlook, this is unacceptable. We need the ability to do two things natively: track attendance (where did the checkboxes go?) and send pages via e-mail. Very frustrating…
