This is very helpful for people who use OneNote for team collaboration. Everyone can easily see what exactly others has added and/or contributed. The pages contain unread content will have bold text in tab and all unread content will be highlighted in green.

  1. I love this feature, I just have one question:

    Is there a way to disable on a certain machine? I ask because I read the same notebooks synced to two different machines. On my laptop I browse OneNote during builds so I like to know what’s new, but on my desktop I strictly follow links and write documentation. In that mode I would prefer to have the feature disabled so I don’t feel compelled to constantly mark everything as read.


  2. Good point. When I see the bold font in tab and highlight background color in text content, I feel very strange. Your post resolve my question.
