  1. Option to erase using right-click and hold.

    This would make it much better for teachers using a Smartboard or Promethean Board. We have a button on the pen equivalent to the right button on a mouse. And I erase almost as much as I draw during instruction. The constant reach back and forth between draw and erase is exhausting (Also an Option for Quick Access Toolbar on the bottom would lovely).

      • Eliminate the lag

        When my students are collaborating in the Collaboration Space or in OneNote, it needs to be automatic/live like in Google Docs... The lag is frustrating and counterproductive!

        • Add solid shapes to cover

          Inserting solid shapes to cover answers, which also means pictures have to over lap.

              • Right Click an inserted file attachment for more options: to Print, Open With, Send To

                When a file is inserted as an attachment into OneNote, please add more options to the right click menu to include: Send To, Print, Open With, so that a file inside OneNote e.g. could be opened in another program. I want to be able to have options to open an attached file in another program.

                  I think that the Learning Tools are a really fantastic feature but the UI for Dictation needs to be more visible and give the user feedback when they are dictating.

                  • Add the shapes function to the online version of Onenote.

                    Teachers/students have to open the desktop OneNote in order to add shapes to their notebook. The few shapes that are available on the desktop version (circle, line, triangle, box) are very valuable in making thinking maps. It would be awesome if they were available on the online version too!

                    • I would like the groups in the calendar and the students in the class notebook to be linked so I don't have to enter them twice.

                      Once I add a student to the class notebook I want them to automatically be part of the associated calendar.

                      • Access to change or rename sections after they are created on OneNote Notebook

                        Accès à changer les sections après qu'elles ont été créés avec le créateur de bloc-notes OneNote
                        Ce n'est pas possible de changer/renommer une section une fois qu'elle a été créée avec le créateur de bloc-notes.
                        Ça serait idéal de pouvoir changer le nom quand nécessaire.

                        • Need a toggle for inserting videos

                          Loving the ability to insert videos in OneNote 2016 - but after doing it a few times, if I only want to copy and paste a video link on a notebook page, it grabs the video and inserts it also. This is a feature that we should be able to toggle off and on.

                                    Hello,
                                    I noticed when I create a ClassNotebook it creates a Class Notebooks \ Templates structure in my onedrive and shares it to everyone except external users. Can I modify this to be only the Students, and Teachers using my notebook? Or can I use this to create a custom layout for my Notebook?

                                      I have already created notebooks, but not with Student Notebook Creator, is there an easier way to add students without creating a new class notebook and copying each section in?

                                        • I'd like pupils to be able to copy an entire page to their content area or for me to send a page to all of their areas

                                          I would like pupils to complete homework sheets that I have made.

                                          I would like them to either be able to copy an entire page (so they can fill in the blanks or draw on the diagrams)

                                          or

                                          I would like to be able to automatically distribute a page into all of my pupil's areas so they can complete the work
