  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.

        • 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…

              • 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!

                • 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

                  • Make the synching more consistent + faster from pc to android

                    I had to leave my phone on for 3 DAYS (not kidding here !) to get it to synch halfway and now it won't add what I add on my PC

                    • text container size

                      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.

                      • 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).

                        • 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.

                          • OneNote Android text scaling

                            Tell me please, what does the scaling of text on the screen depend on?
                            There are two different notes, in the first case, with the fascination for viewing, the text goes beyond the edges of the screen.
                            In the second case, when enlarged, the text is automatically distributed to the width of the screen.
                            How to make it so that always the text was on the width of the screen and did not go beyond its edges?

                              • You have separate apps as it stands

                                I paid for an Office 365 subscription, and was under the impression that you had apps that ran on the android to compliment this paid subscription. As it turns out, the android app doesn't have the same functionality as the desktop version and I'm apparently left with features I thought I was paying for that I don't have. Specifically, I apparently can't use a Badge feature on an Android even though it displays a badge on the screen. Nor can I share a notebook, according to your tech service people.

                                Starting to wonder about the annual subscription I paid for,…

                                    You can crop images on the Online version of onenote but not on the desktop or the Android app. I never take an image framed correctly. It would be nice to have at least a crop tool.

                                    • Hide deleted notebooks and show relevant suggestions under More notebooks

                                      When opening More notebooks... I see a lot of old notebooks that I deleted a long time ago. Showing notebooks that I have access to through teams and groups or notebooks that I created would be more useful.

                                      • Need to be on-line for using OneNote

                                        OneNote should be available even offline. It should be able to take my notes even when I am not online.
