  1. When clipping a recipe, OneNote does not detect all ingredients if placed in two columns on webpage.

    I clip a lot of recipes from the web. When clipping a recipe, OneNote does not detect all ingredients ifthey have been placed in two columns. Only the left-side column is detected, requiring me to go back into the original webpage and copy/paste the remaining ingredients. This is more a bug than a suggestion, since the 2nd column is definitely a part of the recipe.

    • Allow to clip source code snippets without loosing basic formatting or whitespace

      Currently, when you clip an article with a source code snippet in it, the resulting page has the source code snippet reformatted in the standard font, with no line breaks or white space.

      It would be nice if text blocks that had a monospace font applied on the web page would be copied in a way that keeps the monospaced font face and any whitespace in tact.

      Ideally, it would apply formatting like the NoteHighlight plugin, cf. https://notehighlight2013.codeplex.com/

      • Sort order options

        Please implement the option to choose how the notebooks are displayed when clipper is activated: now they seem to be sorted alphabetically, which is not always convenient. It would be great to be able to sort notebooks by date modified/accessed or by manual order.

        • Clip To Location: allow sections further than just 3rd level of section group tree

          In the "Location" area the OneNote sections are visible only up to the 3rd level of the section group hierarchy. All the sections nested further are simply not visible and it is not possible to select such a section.
          This must be fixed. In practice, advanced OneNote users may very well need 5 or more section group levels.

            • Fixed Width Screen Clipping from Active Window to Current Page in OneNote

              Current Behvaior of Win+Shift+S for Screen Clipper is Rectangular Snip of the desired screen and then there are ways to move it to desired Notebook/Page by setting desired Screen Clippings options from File > Options > Send to OneNote > Screen Clippings.

              I do a lot of web based trainings and Screen Clippings is my go to shortcut for taking notes. However, I put a lot of efforts in creating that right Square screenshot and then paste in the OneNote page which takes significant time in notes taking and kinda defeats the purpose of taking digital notes.

              Suggestion:

              • allow creating a new section from clipper

                Allow the creation of a new section from clipper, when there is no appropriate section to clip a given web page
                Presently, one must wait to:
                1) go to Onenote,
                2) create an appropriate section to receive the webpage
                3) wait for the notebook to have sync with the cloud
                4) wait for clipper to display the new section
                ....AND ONLY THEN, clip the webpage

                  • Email to specific notebooks

                    Allow users to email to a specific notebook, rather than just the "Quick Notes" (or whatever the user has set as their notebook to receive emails). This could be done by typing "@[notebook]" in the subject of the email, or some variant of that method.

                    • Allow to choose notebook by entering the first letters in the search filed

                      I have over 20 notebooks, and choosing from a long list while clipping is a hassle. Please introduce a search field above the notebook list, entering any text would narrow down the list. In such way find a necessary notebook to clip the article would be so much easier.

                      • When clipping recipes can clipping as "Article" still be an option?

                        When OneNote detects a recipe, "Recipe" becomes the default and "Article" disappears. I like clipping as "Recipe" usually, but many cooking sites provide step-by-step instructions with photos. "Recipe" won't capture that detail but "Article" would. "Recipe" could still be the default on recipe sites but I'd like "Article" to be available as a choice.
                        If you can only have 4 options you could kill "Full Page" (only on a recipe page). I rarely use that for anything.

                        • Linkedin friendly OneNote Clipper option

                          Having a clipper option to save a streamlined version of LinkedIn profiles would be a huge bonus. of course you can save the entire page, but it's so much cleaner to save the pertinent info of a profile — Evernote clipper has this and I used it ALL the time.

                          • Improve clipper for Android

                            Currently the clipper only capture a bookmark with a link and page title. Please update the clipper to match the features of the desktop clipper, such as clip the full page, and clip the "article." This is the greatest strength that Evernote has over OneNote. Take that away and you will so more people convert to ON.

                            Right now, I either clip the bookmark in OneNote, return to my desktop later, follow the bookmark link, and re-clip it, or I clip the full page in Evernote, then import EN notes to ON using the new importer tool. Both methods are…

                                After more than a year of waiting for Edge Browser's capabilities to evolve enough to make it a truly useful product, the only thing holding me back from making it my browser of choice is that the OneNote Web Clipper still doesn't work... who does one have to kill to make Microsoft address this really obvious failing? Is it the OneNote Dev Team, or is it the Edge Dev team? Maybe it's both?

                                    • End time wasting backspacing in OneNote

                                      Kindly create an option to remove formatting on pasted pdf text

                                      Even when using the "kept text only" option, sections of text from pdfs that are pasted into OneNote often include unwanted formatting. Consequently, text does flow properly. The only way to correct the problem is to do a ton of time wasting backspacing.

                                      Wonder if others who use outlining/bulleting collapse feature have the same issue? Thanks, Matthew

                                      • OneNote needs a clipboard (like Word has) that saves things you have previously copied

                                        As a teacher, I often need to paste the same comment more than once when I am marking students' work. A comment I made about one piece of work I often want to make again about a second piece of work. If there was a clipboard, I could just take that comment off the clipboard without having to continually re-copy the original.
