  1. Configurable function for Samsung S-Pen's button

    The Samsung Tab S3 comes with an stylus called S-Pen which features a button for the thumb. In Samsung's note taking app this can for example be used to switch to the eraser.

    It would be a nice feature, if you could configure OneNote to react to this button, for example by cycling through pens (press to go to eraser, press again for the highlighter press again to be back to normal pen), or by acting as certain other pen while you hold the button.

    With such a feature, the button would have a meaningful function and so you can…

      • Move text lines up or down similarly like pc version

        In OneNote pc, we can move text lines up and down using the dragger on the left. This helps managing text. It would be so awesome to have this feature in android version too.

        • look at onenote for the ipad pro....copy and paste

          Seriously, OneNote for android is barely usable. Unfortunately, my company won't support an ipad pro therefore I'm stuck with the Android tab S3. Even more unfortunate is that I'm likely going to have to abandon electronic notes as this app is not very good. I find the pen less accurate (which you can't do anything about) however being able to lasso select, change the color and thickness of your highlighter, and have the ability to open a section group created on a desktop would be a good start. Not sure why one note is especially horrible on Android.....Word seems to…

          • Exporting and sharing

            I have two things to say. First, please add a feature to export notes in text file and PDF file. Second, please keep note sharing turned off by default because I don't like my personal notes to be synced automatically and I also don't like the idea that anybody with a link to my note can read it.

                    • Section and section groups like windows

                      There is huge gap of functionality between windows app and android app. OneNote is cool. In android app there is no way to create a new section group. Also there is no way to fold section groups, as there is in windows app.
                      This unavailability of folding of section group makes app very time consuming and cumbersome when there are many section in each section group and you have to scroll through all of them to reach destination section at very last.

                      • checkbox

                        It would be great on the android OneNote app to be able to show and not show completed tasks. That way you can keep them but can not show to make the list easier to see what is outstanding.

                            • Ability to sort notebook manually

                              In OneNote for windows and OneNote iOS, we can manually sort the notebooks according to what we like.
                              For example, in windows, we can just move up and down the notebooks, and they will correspond.
                              In iOs version, we can just easily click 'edit' and then re-arrange the position of notebook according to what we liked best.

                              Why is this important feature not available in android?

                                • Adding new account crashes

                                  I have my work account automatically populate when I open OneNote. When I try to add my personal account it crashes OneNote.

                                  I have done the following:

                                  Clearned APP cache
                                  Cleanred APP data
                                  Clearned phone data from recovery
                                  Re-Install the app several times.

                                  It crashes when I start typing my email address. The keyboard shows up, but no letters show up in the email address field, and then crashes.

                                  HELP!!!

                                  • Android app is very buggy.

                                    The android version full of bugs , I cannot edit most notes. The app restarts every time and I had to re install the app to make it work. But after a while the problem comes back. This app has proved to be one among the most buggiest apps in play store

                                    • Ability to open two different windows of the app!!!

                                      I have Samsung Galaxy Tab A with S-Pen. This tablet (and other tablets) let you have 2 apps open at the same time by splitting the screen. It would be a good idea to be enabled to have open two pages at the same time and edit them.

                                        OneNote 2016 already has a great feature that is Tags Summary for tracking down all the to-do lists. Now MS has only to give the same feature to the Android app.
