Hi!

I'm writing a story, and I'd like to know if I can use "on" instead of "onto". Someone told me that it's accepted to use the word "on" instead of "onto".

For example:

I put the box on the table.

I hang the painting on the wall.

The cat jumped on the table.

Thanks!

Only the last one could naturally take "onto" but it's okay with "on," in my opinion. You could, I suppose, say you put the box onto the table, but I don't think it sounds natural, and you would not hang a painting "onto" the wall.
