  1. Make Android version of OneNote similar to Windows 10 version

    The OneNote app for Android is horrible in comparison to the Windows 10 version. I am an engineering student and I have used the Windows 10 version and absolutely loved it. However, I recently started using a Samsung Tab S3 and I have realized the Android version is absolutely terrible compared to the Windows 10 version. The following are my reasons:

    1. The button on the S Pen is not able to be used as an eraser which, when having to take quick notes, is an inconvenience.

    2. The pen options are absolutely laughable, there is plenty of space to…

    • Page size + Print setting for onenote android app

      It would be really great to have the same features in the Samsung Galaxy S4 tab version of the OneNote app as that of the OneNote 365 app.

      The features I find the most useful are -

      1. Page size option -
      Many times, I would like to take print of my assignments on an A4 page, to be able to submit them.
      Either printing the notes on an actual page or a pdf version, without the page size option on the tab, I don't know where to stop writing, where the page ends.

      2. Print option -
      I would…

      • handwriting to text on OneNote for Android

        Get handwriting to text for OneNote in Android just like in the Windows version. Otherwise, what is the point? I want my Android Notes to transfer to text that I can access on my Windows machine (or elsewhere) later. That is why I would get OneNote on my android device.

          Include more of the features that are available on PC. For example figures, customizable pen colors, or the abaility to insert tables.

          • Better font formatting for Android phones

            Things like the ability to choose the type of font, and font size are crucial if you want to take notes properly. OneNote already has the ability to support these given that if I were to paste text from another source, OneNote is perfectly capable of showing the right font selection and font size so why can't the option to choose these myself also be added to the app? Even if you can't add the extensive customisation of Word, a simple option to choose between 3-4 different heading styles that many other apps already do with ease using markup would…

            • why does Android OneNote have such limited functions compared to other OneNote platforms?

              Using a stylus on android OneNote is a terrible experience.
              Compare to OneNote on iPad.
              When is Microsoft going to fix all the gaps in the Android version??

              • S-Pen button

                The S pen (EJ-PT820BSEGWW) already have support in Onenote, but i would love if it was possible to also use the button on it for erasing.

                I am able to do that on both my Surface Pro and Surface Book 2 with their original pens and a Wacom stylus and would love to have this function added for the S-Pen aswell since i use the Tab S3 at university for notes.

                • Scaling for small screens (idea)

                  The ability to place notes anywhere on the page (and performance and fast scaling) allows me to see everything at once and "feel" the location, rather than using tags and searching. This navigation is ideal on a desktop PC, but not in a small screen/window. Therefore, we need the mobile view - filling within the right and left edges of the screen/window with the optimal size of font, images and other objects. Not fit to screen. The blocks in the page are already fill itself with content within its sides, so for the small window/screen you can add an "enter-exit"…

                  • Editing Note Container's width on Android's OneNote to visualize long outlined notes better (like on Windows 10)

                    It's of a big need to add the feature of editing Note Container's width and position for OneNote Android App like on Windows.

                    I have long nested paragraphs with many subordinate paragraphs and long outlines. This makes the text not to be fitting good in the default small width of Note Container on the OneNote Android app. Below is attached screenshots (desktop_screenshot_1, android_screenshot_1) to show the difference of displaying the same notebook page on Windows app and Android app.

                    A temporary trick I've tried is that I added another Note Container from the Windows app. Surprisingly, this enabled the Note…

                    • More text editing features

                      Hello, I think the android app is missing features on text edition, such as text font and size, styles (heading 1, heading 2...). These are available on PC edition and are very useful to organise and hierarchize ideas. Thanks in advance !

                      • Notebook highlight color

                        Shouldn’t each notebook in our list be highlighted the same colour as the notebook just like it is with the tabs?
                        Is there a reason why each notebook is highlighted grey?

                                I really hate it that I have to use all kind of different versions of OneNote. I have Windows 10, Android and iOS.

                                Why not one version on all those operating systems?

                                    I am a Note 8 user and would love to be able to use the s-pen to resize the highlight tabs when text is highlighted. For some reason I need to use my finger to move the tabs back and forth over text. I have a picture of what I am talking about, feel free to reach out to me if you need more information.

                                    • Include find tags function

                                      Please add find tags function to Android. So often, I want to remind myself of the tasks I have created at work but am unable to do so without accessing a PC. It would be such a shame to have to go to another provider and use their apps to be able to do this when I am happy with OneNote in every other respect.

                                          If you are using an active stylus (like the S Pen) there should be a way to draw with the pen but pan the note around using your finger. Every other note application on android has this feature.
