  1. smooth ink replay

    Currently, when you replay the ink strokes, the individual strokes appear as a whole. For the creation of screencasts, it would be nice, if the individual strokes would be built piecemeal from sub-segments, so that the impression of a realistic writing would arise.

  3. A customisable dictionary for the user

    A dictionary where you can type out a word and it's definition in your notes and add it to your own dictionary where you can find all of the words that you have chosen for the dictionary and then you can also use the dictionary to direct you to where the word was originally typed and highlighted.

  4. Add Placeholders to Pages

    It would be great that while building templates pages for students to complete that we can add placeholders so that students can click to insert the required content. This could be an image or text or sound etc.

    My reference would be what you can do on Kenote and Pages on a Mac or iOS

  5. Distributing Page from Notebook in a personal account

    When I try to distribute a page from a Notebook from a personal account, the distribution side bar just spins. If I try to distribute a page from a section that is in the class notebook, it works ok. This problem is not present in OneNote 2016.

  7. Option to have automatically insert printout as background

    the option is available in OneNote 2016. For Win 10 Apps, it has to be done for every page that is inserted as printout.

  12. colour code page names for marking

    When I mark a page I would like it to stand out in the student section so that they can go directly to the marked pages in order to view the marking and improve their work.
    I use DIRT (Dedicated Improvement and Reflection Time) where students can improve any marked pages from a section. Currently they have to look at each page individually to see if improvements need to be made. I would like them to be able to identify at a glance which pages have feedback on them.

  13. collaboration space lock

    Would it be possible to be able to right click on sections in the collaboration space and have an "lock" and "unlock" button available in the drop down menu? That would speed up the process as opposed to going through the Notebook Manager each time you needed to do that.

    Having the option to lock and unlock the entire collaboration space with a quick right click, as well is individual sections in the collaboration space would be very helpful in a classroom setting.

  14. Ability to move to next page or move back a page in when in Full Screen mode.

    It would be awesome if there were some buttons that would allow you to use full screen mode in class notebook like a presentation mode. Just allowing you to move forward a page and back a page.

  15. Ability to flip documents that are inserted landscape on the app and not just the desktop version

    In the OneNote app and Class Notebooks there is no ability to right click and flip the document from landscape to portrait. The ability is on the desktop app

  16. A pencil option to go with the pen and marker (just like the other Office Apps)

    A pencil to draw/write with as an option with the pen and maker - this feature already exists in other Office iPadOS apps like PowerPoint and Word - bring it into OneNote :)

  17. Editing a page after being distributed by the teacher.

    If the teacher already distributed a page through OneNote to the students and then wants to edit this page, he/she must go into each student's section and make the edits. It would be helpful if we can edit them all at one time.

  18. review student work

    I'd like a way to have the Review Student Work not always be on top or at least be minimized. When I have multiple windows open it gets in the way.

  19. improved performance when editing

    need to have page updates distributed instantly. Case where a teacher is working with pupils and want to review work they are doing on a Class One not page. Currently can take 30 seconds for the teacher to see an update. Also when working in the collaboration section same poor performance seems to be a feature. happy to provide more details

  20. surface pen on one note doesn't work well- possible fix/improvements

    The surface pen on one note doesn't function great.
    It is constantly on pen mode. I intstinctively will try to use the pen to scroll through the document but end up drawing all over the place.

    Could I suggest some ideas to help with improvement:

    Fixing the action of clicking the back of the pen (eraser if you will).
    You should make it more customizable- i.e with a long click you can take a screen shot or open up a program of your choice, etc. One long click does this, two clicks does that.

    -If you give a quick click…
