  1. better user experience for choosing sections and section groups

    choosing notebook is easy,choosing section group and sections are an absolute pain,the user experience now is best described as cramped and confusing ,kindly rework the user experience for choosing sections and section groups from scratch

    • Lasso selection to move and resize drawings

      I believe iOS already has this feature. We need to be able to lasso a drawing and resize and move it. As it stands, I have to go to my desktop application to do this or just delete what I drew.

      • Add, "Ink to Text," AKA Handwriting to Font support to OneNote for Android

        This was posted a year ago, but didn't receive much traction. I just purchased a tablet with a stylus while under the impression that this feature was supported on Android given it has been on Windows for awhile.
        Developing for Android and Windows are two different paradigms, I know, but I would think porting the feature wouldn't be too cost or time-intensive.
        Thanks for your time.

          • Add Ink to Text and Ink to Math

            it would be great to have ink to text and ink to math in the app, it would help a lot in taking notes in lectures

            • No password protection for Android yet?

              Very disappointed, and uninstalled from all my devices. Until I can get password protection for Android, I will be using ColorNote instead of OneNote. You should learn how they did it.

              • Android Functionality

                Stop cutting functionality on Android. It is stupid. The time when Android apps had to be simplistic to offset the lack of computing power is over. The following are the most common examples:

                1) Allow relocating sections from notebook to notebook.
                2) Allow drag pages up and down in stack
                3) Allow renaming notebooks and make sure that renaming affects all platforms. The workaround when I have to go on OneDrive to rename a notebook is downright stupid. If you worry that your system will not recognize a notebook under a new name - add a secret ID system or…

                • Better tablet interface and file storage

                  I'm not sure what is wrong with the Android version, but let me describe how I would like it to work: I want to be able to set it up so that it looks the same as the PC version, that it can open the same files as the PC version, that I can store copies of the PC version files locally (so that I can use my tablet without having to connect to the wifi - and sync later), that I can create notebooks on my tablet that I can then open on the PC via OneDrive, that I…

                  • Ability to save notebooks locally.

                    I, and I assume a lot of others, would like another way of backing up there notebooks instead of relying on a cloud based solution. Saving files to the device should be a mandatory option across all platforms not just windows desktop.

                      • PRINT

                        Users must be able to PRINT from OneNote for Android. Any cheap note taking app has a Print function. An MS app that doesn't PRINT TEXT is absurd and very disappointing!

                        • Format editing and highlighting

                          Format editing (bold, itallic, underline) is hard - I need to go in menu for each word. Make the bar smaller and always available when editing note (like in Evernote, with checkbox option, ident, formating and easy highlighting).

                          I miss highlighting with the cursor without using stylus or a finger (it looks messy). I like using sylus in some cases and it is great feature but it is hard to do quick highlighting by selecting text and clicking the option or having a cursor that will hihligt selected text (it should have more than one color for this option).

                          • melhorar e ampliar os recursos de formatação de texto, imagem e folha no onenote

                            O onenote não possui o recurso de justificar o texto, não sendo possível fazer blocos de texto com essa formatação. deveria ser implementada essa formatação afim de que o usuário possa formatar seus textos do onenote a exemplo do que é possível fazer no evernote.

                              If we can sort the notes by alphabet , we can find the specific note more easily.

                                  I am new to Onenote, and love it...on the PC. But there needs to be a way to reset text containers to "auto-size" and "reflow text" on android devices. Almost impossible to use this on my phone or tablet until this is fixed. Please don't make me go back to Evernote, because I really like the way Onenote works much better.

                                  • Fix "carriage return" when using handwriting recognition

                                    Please fix this bug. When using handwriting recognition, it works well until you go to a line ("carriage return") :
                                    - In the handwriting windows, the cursor goes to the line
                                    - but on the main page, it continues on the same line
                                    We annoying, thanks !
                                    (using galaxy tab s3)

                                    • OK Google, take a note support for Android Auto

                                      I noticed that there's support for onenote in android wear, but I also use my phone in a car dock, and it'd be awesome to have support for this in Android Auto as well. I'd like to be able to have a cue to take a note, and have that embed an audio recording along with a transcription in my notebook. Great for when I have ideas that I want to jot down in the car while on my commute

                                      • Fix text selection! Use Android's in built

                                        Fix text selection! Use Android's built-in text selection (like you do on iOS) instead of the bad one inside the app!

                                        The problem is selecting text, not moving cursor. It is especially annoying when selecting text that is not the view

                                        • Add Title to Page?

                                          Make it easier to figure out how to add a title. Every note/page is untitled and I can't figure out how to add a title. Lame.
