  1. OCR in OneNote for Windows 10 like in OneNote 2016

    I would like to be able to insert a screenshot of text or a picture of text into OneNote for Windows 10 and have it be able to read the text. This would makeeaching materials that I send to OneNote when I take a picture of text using the OneNote app on my phone, or when I screenshot text, or print a file to OneNote accessible via immersive reader. This functionality is already built into OneNote 2016. I would like it in OneNote for Windows 10.

  3. Change the sort default to last name when reviewing student work

    The default sort setting is student first name. Rarely would teachers need the list sorted by first name (however friendlier it might be). Most teachers have a gradebook open, sorted by last name, to cross-reference grades and work.

  4. Sorting students by last name in the app

    In One Note 2016, it was possible to sort students by last name when reviewing student work. This was much, much easier to review, as most grade books are also sorted by last name. Could this functionality be added to the app?

  5. Un-distributing a page from a class notebook

    It would be sooo useful to be able to mass delete or un-distribute a page from a class notebook. When I make changes to a page I have already distributed, it means I distribute again, and then students have to delete the original themselves (and many are unable to do this).

  6. equation editor

    The Win10 app is getting good. The one thing I still miss from ON 2016 is the full equation editor - which is necessary when working with science. Will that come?

  7. If not bringing back OneNote Desktop, make APP as functional as the desktop version please!

    There are many features missing in the app, and my entire school went to OneNote for it's great functionality and now that we're updated we have lost a lot of the power of the program. Please, either go back to desktop version or make the APP as powerful.

    Specifically at the moment I'm pulling out my hair that I can't rename an embedded file by simply right clicking on the file like before. I also miss the email page button. The list goes on and on. Help please!

  9. Background Colour

    I am an educator at Cardiff and Vale College and creating resources for dyslexic students in OneNote Desktop. I have changed page colours to make them dyslexia friendly although when opening in the online version this reverts back to standard white.

    I am aware this has been reported and the response has been that there is no option in OneNote online to change the background colour neither is there any plans to include this in any future upgrades.

    Therefor I would like to stress how inportant it is for this feature to be enabled on Onenote online and any other…

  14. Multiple page distribution from Windows 10 App

    Multiple page distribution from OneNote 2016 is now wholly unreliable. Recently distributed multiple pages and 72 hours later students still had not got the pages. Major disruption to teaching! Same content had to be distributed page by page from Windows 10 App. Time consuming! When is multiple page distribution coming to the Windows 10 App. LONG OVERDUE ...

  15. Using the angle symbol: not possible in OneNote?

    Neither "insert symbol" nor "insert equation" nor "ink to math" appears to support the "angle" symbol, which looks a bit like a capital L in italics (but which won't work in equations because the L is already italicized)

  16. Review Student Work in Section Groups

    Please allow us to see pages and tabs in section groups in the OneNote App when we are reviewing student work! Currently we can only see tabs in the main notebook, but no tabs in section groups show up. I create a new section group for each unit, so I cannot review student work since it isn't visible. Once again I am forced to return to ON 2016... Pretty please!

  18. Don't get rid of the desktop version of OneNote

    I am a teacher and the App version of OneNote doesn't come close to the functionality of the desktop version. The constant loading of the different pages wastes valuable time a teach doesn't have to waste.

    PLEASE, PLEASE make a OneNote 2019 desktop version!!!

  20. Mapping students in OneNote 2016 is much more efficient than in Windows 10 OneNote. It would be great if that was available before OneNote

    Mapping students in OneNote 2016 is much more efficient than in Windows 10 OneNote. It would be great if that was available before OneNote 2016 was no longer supported. I would also love the option of having the ability to have the sections be at the top instead of on the side. Small computes lose too much space.
