    Make tables like everywhere else in office. They're pretty terrible in OneNote. :(

    Just use the same engine as the rest of office! It makes me so frustrated / disappointed seeing OneNote being totally ununited.

    This is NOT a bug. I actually use this feature now that it's not tied to OneNote and this would be a huge regression for my daily workflow.

    If you want this to be possible, let it be an option in settings, and let users choose where to send the clipping, not just OneNote.

    Thank you for voting on this feature. I’d like to gather more information on what you would like to see in the future. I have posted 4 questions below —

    1. How often do you tag a note/item with multiple tags?
    a) Never
    b) Rarely
    c) Sometimes
    d) Often
    e) Always

    2. Can you provide an example, from a recent instance, in which you applied multiple tags? e.g. “todo” & “critical” and “todo” & “important”

    3. Some of you commented that it’s important to see all the tags for each item in the summary list, not just the first tag for an item. If multiple tags were shown for each item on the summary list, what would this allow you to do next?

    4. When finding tags in OneNote 2016, which tag list is most important to you? Why?
    a) Summary Page
    b) Tags Summary Pane

    Shared Links to Single Pages of Notes is being removed

    We recently removed the ability to share single pages of notes. The previous single-page sharing implementation from personal OneDrive notebooks was our initial attempt to begin building out the larger feature set. However, this first step didn’t satisfy the needs of our customers and, compared to full notebook sharing, usage of the limited page sharing feature was very low. The technical path we need to take to build out the full OneNote page sharing experience requires us to deprecate the previous functionality until comprehensive work on these feature improvements can be completed.

    What happens to page links that I’ve already shared with other people?

    Previously shared links to single pages of notes will automatically expire as of June 15, 2018. After this date, recipients of shared page links will no longer be able to view these pages, unless a recipient…

    We use OneNote extensively in my work place and the inability to share just a section or page is very frustrating: the end result is either not using OneNote or creating a new Notebook for every time that you need to change user scope. Within this particular app, creating a new Notebook *feels* very big and it very quickly feels like you're going to get lost within all of your notebooks. If this would truly imitate the way that real notebooks would be used, rarely if ever would you have 20/30+ notebooks over the course of a few months, at least not the way that I use them. It would be nice if you could simply share a section or page with a group of people, even if that is only possible in a more limited, share-via-link-only kind of way.

    This is huge. Soon after Windows 8.1, I found myself thinking, "Windows really needs a note app". Only a little bit after did I even think of the fact that that is OneNote--but it isn't a "sticky note" app -- it's a "note book" app. It has very strong points in organization, but really loses out on the disorganized, jot something down and tag it for later side of things. I just need somewhere where I can (1) quickly jot something down and (2) not feel like it's going to be an organizational nightmare later. Right now it feels like neither. The Surface Pro 3 is the first effort that I've really seen going that way--but that's only on Surface Pro 3. The app needs a "+" button somewhere at the very top level that is meant to quickly add a note at any point within the app: no need to navigate or think -- just hit '+' and then type away -- *in a flyout box* (NOT a full page--you should resume instantly to the page you were on). Hit save and away it goes and you're back to whatever you were doing. In upcoming versions of Windows, this could even built into the OS in some way, a button somewhere that you can just tap, add a note in a flyout, add on a few tags to know that you can find it later (*without needing to go through a list of pages) and then keep doing whatever you're doing knowing that it's saved. THAT would be huge. THAT would provide massive competition against EverNote.
