  1. 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.

    • 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??

      • Include more of the features that are available on PC.

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

        • Feature parity with iOS

          Make Android app have feature parity with iOS. It's an absolute disgrace that the Android version has been left in such a weak state. I'm forced to use the Samsung SNote app while I wait for OneNote to support even basic functionality like lasso select and redo actions. This is coming from a very long term supporter and advocate of OneNote on tablet PCs.

          • Disable finger for writing when using an active stylus

            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.

            • 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.

              • 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…

                • onenote android app search function

                  Dear Community,

                  I'm using onenote very active and it's a great tool. Nevertheless there is one thing I would like to have improved on onenote Android app.

                  I'm collecting contact data in onenote, from email, from telephone , from anywhere, just as a quick container to get all new contact details in one place.

                  So my notes can have hundred of lines. If I'm going to search in onenote on my computer, cursor will jump to the matching text strings.

                  If I search on my mobile phone Samsung S7 edge, I only get the pages, where the text string is…

                    • Different OneNote versions?

                      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?

                      • error 0xE0000648

                        Hello,
                        I'm trying to use one not on my tablet android, but as soon it starts it shows the error 0xE0000648. It shows this error immediately, so before I can log in the app.
                        How can I resolve it?

                          • Design parity with iOS

                            Make the Android app have design parity/consistency with the iOS app. All you have to do is place both versions side by side and you can start spotting the differences.
                            For example, the tools under the Draw tab look different compared to the iOS app. Why don’t they look exactly the same?

                              When you import images from Office Lens there appears to be no ability to be able to rotate the image or even export it in the Android app.

                                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 !

                                • Scrolling bar for pages

                                  Please have a scrolling bar on Android pages. When I have long pdfs for school, they can be 20-30 pages. We need a scroll bar so we can quickly go up or down. Flicking up or down on the screen a dozen times is way less effective. I like the Windows 10 version where the scroll bar can pop out.

                                      • Add simplified task list management support to Android app (same feature as iOS)

                                        The iOS app has a very useful feature for lists of tasks. It allows the user to change the view of the page to be like a task management app, that makes it much easier to check off tasks, and add new tasks, particularly when out and about (such as checking off items on a grocery list).

                                        • Need more zoom in for pictures in handwriting mode to add text more comfortable

                                          The zoom is too low for adding text comfortable in handwriting mode. So the text is in the end too big. If i could zoom more in the text would be perfect fit in the picture.
