  1. Page deletion

    I would like the ability to delete multiple pages. After deletion the next available page becomes active. Now I delete one page and jump to the top page of the section. Productivity bummer.

    We are pleased to inform you that this feature has been added to OneNote for Windows 10 as part of the May 2017 update.

    You should be able to select multiple pages either with Ctrl + clicking or with Shift and clicking. Once multiple pages have been selected, you can right click them and click Delete and they should all get deleted in one go.

    For more information please reference the following article:

  2. Moving notebook bug

    I came across what I assume to be a bug that happened when I moved a notebook to a new location and then back again. Details inside that will hopefully allow you to replicate it.

  3. Back and forth (move in history) button

    I want to have a Feature in OneNote for Windows (Desktop) like "move in history of used sites back and forth" like in IE, so you can quickly Change back to the last OneNote site when you for example change temporarily to a site found in search results.

  4. Fix copy/paste of images

    When I copy an image from OneNote, and try to paste it somewhere else in OneNote, it doesn't work. (Yes, maybe there is a workaround, but that doesn't change the fact that this functionality is seriously busted.)

  5. Add "Recent Notes" to the "Notebooks" section like mobile

    Adding "Recent Notes" to the "Notebooks" section would greatly improve my productivity when using OneNote Desktop. I'm constantly switching between notes from different sections and notebooks and "Forward"/"Backward" just are precise enough.

    Also, this features is available in all mobile versions of the App, so it makes sense to add to the desktop version.

  6. OneNote needs a Shape recognition mode

    While you are in this mode, you can draw a jiggery circle and OneNote converts it into a perfect round circle. Same for an axis or any kind of form that you can draw, it would tremendously help in Mathematics or Physics.
    Competitors (which I won't name here) already have this feature. I've been using OneNote around 2 years in school now and this feature would really make OneNote so much better.

    We’re excited to announce that Ink Shape Recognition is coming to OneNote this November on Windows 10, iPad, and iPad Pro. Ink Shape Recognition is a new mode that will automatically convert your hand-drawn shapes into perfect-looking shapes while inking. It recognizes over a dozen shapes including basics like circles, triangles and squares, as well as more complex shapes like quadrilaterals, pentagons and hexagons.

    For more details, please check out this blog post: https://blogs.office.com/2015/10/20/onenote-partners-with-fiftythree-to-support-pencil-and-paper-plus-shape-recognition-coming-soon/

  7. Windows Store app: Disable spell check

    The OneNote app does not offer any option to turn off the automatic spell check, which leads to a flood of red underlines in text fragments that are in a different language than the system default.

  8. Batch import from EverNote

    I need a way to import notes from EverNote to OneNote. (I am considering switching from EverNote to OneNote. EverNote provides an export format. I would prefer not to have to manually copy 900 notes.)

Use the OneNote Importer to seamlessly make the switch from Evernote to OneNote.

  9. Embed Videos

    It would be nice to embed videos in OneNote similar to how they look in PowerPoint instead of just a file attachment.

  13. Discard Changes, Save & Undo options WP!

    More than twice I lost my complete note because I selected all the text and instead of copy button, by mistake I entered any key or hit paste button!

    There's no way going back, even if you switch off your phone it syncs to the cloud ☁

  15. Record audio

    The desktop app has the feature to record audio straight through one note. Why shouldn't the mobile app have the same?

    Completed  ·  Omeed Chandra responded

    Thanks for submitting this feedback! We actually introduced background sync over Wi-Fi for OneNote in Windows Phone 8, so all Windows Phones released in the last year and a half should support this feature.

    If you’re already using Windows Phone 8 or 8.1 and our existing background sync functionality doesn’t meet your needs, please let us know what you would like to see improved about it.

  18. Record handwriting with animated playback

    The ability to click on a record handwriting feature to show handwriting be replayed in real time (not only pieces linked to audio). Then there may also be a need to record audio at the same time while doing this to explain something. etc. This would be helpful for teaching, learning, and taking notes.

  19. Allow users to copy multiple pages from one tab

    Instead of selecting a whole tab to copy or having to go one by one we should be able to use the shift + an arrow key to select multiple pages

  20. Tecla de atalho para função NEGRITO!

    Pelo amor que vocês tem ao seus consumidores, criem uma tecla de atalho no teclado para a função NEGRITO! Ctrl + N agora abre uma nova página! E isso é inútil! Você abre uma nova página nem uma vez ao dia e usamos a função NEGRITO o tempo todo! Por favor, voltem com o atalho para o que está em TODOS os outros softwares da Microsoft. ):
