Wow! I love it

I love the way it manage notes. I can simply create notes and find it later.

Mostly a downgrade!

## 8/19: OneNote does not open, and there is no way to reinstall it## ## 8/19 update: It opens in non Tablet mode, but NOT in TABLET mode, please give us back the Win 8 version!!## Bring back: 1. Capability to take and insert photos from within Onenote. Critical in seminars/lectures! Why did the new v. removed this great feature? 2. The radial menu!! The radial menu was a genius addition to the Win 8 v, but it is missing in the new v.! Even other apps adopted it! This is how some square-headed manager deals with ingenuity!?? There are some pluses in this new version (e.g., zoom), but please fix what you have undone!! **update** At some point, I was not able to access my notebooks, and there was no obvious way to uninstall/reinstall. It is working now, but please fix the bug and allow to insert pictures from the camera!

I like how they redesigned the layout of the app, seems more intuitive now to use. A bit more full featured like the desktop app. HUGE THING THAT SUCKS: There doesn't seem to be a way to move notes between sections without copying and pasting. On a surface you hit the button, and jot a note. It automatically makes a unsorted note, then later you can put it in a section. Now you can't use that work flow. I just end up with with a bunch of unsorted notes...

Needs a Bug Fix Immediately

This program has been extremely buggy on Surface 3 with Windows 10. I am left handed and continuously trigger the left edge swiping charm with my palm as I try to take notes in class. Additionally, OneNote and other programs have begun to lock my touch input to a sort of right click which either brings up the prompt to cut/copy/paste text or the big black box that detects writing and converts it to text. When this happens the edge swipe charms are disabled and touching the icons in the bottom taskbar only bring up the right click list rather than switching between programs. This problem has made an otherwise wonderful program unusable. This needs to be fixed!

What happened?

This is great software - on other platforms. The Windows 10 app store version is missing 99% of the functions available in the other versions - even the iOS build. It's sad and not useful beyond viewing content created somewhere else... in one of the real OneNote Apps.

Very Limited

Very basic,. Ok for quick notes but limited in regards to editing, no spell check, no camera or scan integration.

Was 5 stars Now 3

If I had known onenote wasn't ready I would've delayed upgrading. If I was smart I would've reverted back to 8.1 before 24 days had passed. Please add back in easy copy and paste buttons, pen thickness, editing options and even a new option that allows the changing of color around selected pen work. Please. I use this app the most out of any program on my computer. Everyday. All day.

Nice update, but keyboard bothers!

I like the recent update (24-july), I'm using it in my Surface 3 with W10. But the main problem is that when I'm drawing something, the onscreen keyboard appears everytime I rest my hand! There's no way to manually disable the keyboard when drawing. Pleas add this option for drawing-artists!

Still trying to find the balance point

Reading the reviews it's clear that tablet user's are not happy with the updates to the app for Windows 10. However, as a desktop user, I am quite happy with the changes. The flow with the top menu is intuitive based on my experience with legacy Windows applications, and the capabilities in the ribbon are just what I'd expect for a simple not taking app. The services backing OneNote continue to impress me as they always have, so there's not complaints there either.
