  1. Supporting right to left languages (Android version)

    Hi Onenote team,

    This is a serious problem about the onenote app for android, it supports Right to left langauses on notebooks and sections list , but don't support it inside the page.

    it is making it useless on the android system whenever there is something written in those languages and there is a huge section of people using these languages like Arabic, Farsi, Hebrew.

    I think that the team have to fix this problem before adding more partners.

    by the way it is not something new and I am not the first one to complain about this, for example:

  3. Provide Client APIs to allow offline editing without conflicts

    While most Android phones are permanently connected to the internet via 3G or LTE, many tablets are still WiFi only and will not have internet connectivity when on the go.

    If I wish for app to allow offline editing of OneNote files, I currently have to store any changes that are made locally and sync them when the device regains connectivity. But what if the user also makes changes in the official OneNote app or another OneNote API app at the same time? The changes from each app would not be reflected in the others, and this may result in…

  4. page of OneNote for Mac

    OneNote for Mac, page width is too narrow. Please develop new version, so we can expand the page width as wide as we want. I have many pages, I often need to check some information. I set long words in pages, now the page is too narrow, I only can see part of it.

  7. Lock headers / collumns

    Hi,
    On the next upgrade / release, could you please develop an ability to lock headers / rows within a column, as it is very difficult to manage big tables within the team.

  12. If I'm not crazy, it seems to be impossible to change the font in any of the MS Office 365 programs. Why would they go backwards! My old O

    I need to change all the fonts in all my programs to a larger font. I have always been able to do that easily. But in these new programs, it just doesn't seem possible. Why would they make a change that is detrimental to low-vision people? What can I do?

  14. password

    I need a way to set and remove passwords from sections using the onenote interop. I routinely establish several hundred onenote notebooks with multiple sections and some of those require different passwords.

  15. multiple versions of OneNote

    I can't connect my 2016 ON to the free online version I created on my Android. When I try nothing happens. Please note that I also have older 2007 files on my cpu that will not connect to either the 2016 nor the free online version. I just uninstalled my 2016 version but now when I open up ON on my cpu it instantly takes me to the 2007 version. I don't see how to disentangle this 2007 ON and uninstall it from my 2007 MS Office. Is there any way to merge all versions or at least transfer my…
