  1. OneNote.Application CurVer registry key incorrect for version 16+

    I noticed that if I install Office 2019 or Office 365, the following registry key is set to "OneNote.Application.15":

    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\OneNote.Application\CurVer

    Version 15 corresponds to Office 2013. Is this a bug with the Office installer?

    • Reinstate templates

      In OneNote 2016 you could set templates so pages automatically had the formatting you wanted without having to manually change them each time. You removed this feature in the Windows 10 OneNote (no version year). This is annoying for anyone, but is an accessibility issue for people with disabilities, like dyslexia (10% of the UK population have dyslexia), and other cognitive function problems. I use a blue page template to manage symptoms related to light-sensitivity, but can't do this in the new OneNote. I believe this is in breach of the UK Equality Act 2010 and the WCAG 2.1 guidelines.…

      • Add JS API to Onenote desktop client

        most people that I've observed in various large companies use the desktop client, not the web version of the client.
        Based on the current docs here(https://docs.microsoft.com/en-gb/office/dev/add-ins/overview/office-add-in-availability#onenote), only the OneNote Office Online version supports the JS API.
        It would be useful to provide a seamless experience for both developers and users by making the same framework and add-in available across various clients.
        thanks for reading! :)

          • Data-id attribute support in input HTML

            OneNote REST API supports data-id attribute in the input HTML, which serves as custom identifier. This attribute is preserved in the HTML and is returned by the API when querying content of the page.

            I am trying to use this in OneNote JS Addin, but the data-id is not preserved when creating new paragraph.

            Please add support for this, as it would allow sharing data between JS Addin and REST API client.

              • Add the ability to edit links to inserted files programatically in OneNote

                It would be nice to be able to modify the "pathCache" or "pathSource" attribute to inserted files entries in the OneNote API. This would be useful for writing code that preserves links in existing OneNote notebooks when underlying files that can't be embedded are moved.

                I understand that there are security concerns here, however perhaps a checksum could be recorded and associated with the files at insertion and validated for a new target at runtime.

                  • OneNote Tags

                    Currently changing tags on one shared Notebook doesn't propagate to other notebooks/onenote settings. It would be useful to have local tags that would be associated with specific Onenote notebooks. I could create, save and apply different tag sets depending on the collaboration and the notebook contents.

                          • Access shared content for OneNote

                            I am integrating OneNote in my application. Using https://www.onenote.com/api/v1.0/me/notes/notebooks api I am able to fetch all the notebooks that belonged to a particular user. Let's say a user A has 5 notebooks of his own and 2 shared notebooks. Let's say NoteBook6 is shared by user which is part of organization same A. And NoteBook7 is shared by external user.

                            In my application I want to access all these 7 notebooks which user can access. I tried this using MS Graph API as well as OneNote api but I am able to access only 5 notebooks owned by the user.

                                  • OneNote WebApi for On Premisis Offce Web App Server

                                    When developing on Premises enterprise Web applications there is a need to integrate Office Web Applications into them to provide additional functionality where data privacy is critical (for example through legislation).

                                    For this reason enterprises often cannot utilise Azure hosted solutions such as OneNote online, but must use on-premises servers (an example is Office Web App server which provides in-browser support for Office Applications in SharePoint).

                                    While it is possible to create a windows desktop application that can use the OneNote COM API provided by a locally installed copy of OneNote, it appears not to be possible to provide the…

                                    • Office Apps for all Clients Applications

                                      I saw a lot of devs and customers being confused caused by the point that Apps are not available across all Office client applications. Especially OneNote would be a great benefit. OneNote is one of the best Apps I've ever used. Can't imagine my daily business without OneNote. We've collected several ideas which would enhance OneNote even more and make customer more productive.
