  1. Why No "Set Image as a background" feature in Android Ver.?

    Please add the key feature "Set Image as a background" in Android Ver." for Android ver. Onenote! Ios ver. has it. Without this feature, it's unable to type texts on the picture.

  2. Urgent improvements: simultaneous recording with note-taking & colouring options

    Microsoft apps should be, as promoted, multi-platform. Not asking huge improvements on functionality, but at least not as bad as this for Android. Am willing to pay if you reach to a point where improvements need to be monetised. This is so frustrating painful for Surface+Android users!

  3. Lock page scroll to prevent page moving while writing with stylus (Pixelbook Pen)

    Is it possible to lock a page while writing?

    I'm using a Google Pixel Slate / Google Pixelbook Pen. When writing notes with the pen, palm rejection does not seem to work. The page scrolls left / right / up / down and I cannot hold the page in place. Is there a way to limit page movement?

  4. Sticky Notes widget

    It's great to have sticky notes on my mobile, but it would be even greater to have them on my homescreen, without installing Microsoft launcher (I'll never leave Nova).

  6. A button to reset zoom level

    When we zoom on a page, OneNote remembers that. When we come back later, there is no way to reset the zoom level to the default 100% view. One has to guess what it should be.

    A button to reset zoom level on a page would be nice.

  10. Link to onenote pages in android and Microsoft store apps

    In the windows version one may add a crosslink to another onenote page. Would love to be able to do that in the onenote store app and Android app too. Pls.

    I have to use the store app for work, and often use Android app on the go, and really miss this function in these app versions. I am a teacher and we plan our units in onenote so linking pages to one another is vital.

  11. The Android version is bad!

    Having used the desktop and iOS versions of OneNote... I could not help but notice how BAD the Android version was.... It seemed kinda anemic compared to the iOS app which looks organised and updated and have many settings to choose from while the Android version is just less than basic. Frankly in 2020 having a major app behaving this way is unacceptable even if it's a free app. Microsoft needs to think of a major overhaul for the Android app

  12. OneNote使用整体上还比较好,但就是长文本进行体系化整体的时候,变得非常难受。可以加标题,但就是不同自动生成目录。现在方便的方法,就是通过第三方插件,可是隐私安全根本没有办法得到保证,而且还要花钱买。 既然第三方开发者都能开发出来,需求的确存在,微软为什么官方还不开发?哪怕

    OneNote使用整体上还比较好,但就是长文本进行体系化整体的时候,变得非常难受。可以加标题,但就是不同自动生成目录。现在方便的方法,就是通过第三方插件,可是隐私安全根本没有办法得到保证,而且还要花钱买。

    既然第三方开发者都能开发出来,需求的确存在,微软为什么官方还不开发?哪怕付费都有人使用的功能,为什么微软不开发?这点难以理解,你们不是重视客户需求吗?

    请问什么时候才能够重视这个需求,并将产品打造的更好用一些?哪怕付费也可以啊。

  13. Add the ability to create new Sections and Subsections like in Windows.

    I have been using OneNote on my Windows computer since 2013. I created a Daily Journal notebook and each year I create a new Year section (2013, 2014,...), 12 new Month subsections (Jan, Feb,...) and daily pages for that month.

    Now I want to use my OneNote Daily Journal on my Android 8.0. I can create new Month subsections and Daily pages, but I can't create new Year sections.

    This is a major omission. Please add this functionality in the Android app.

  14. Bring Night mode, Full screen mode, auto shapes, table inserting, reading and editing modes.

    Bring Night mode, Full screen mode, auto shapes, table inserting, reading and editing modes.

    Auto shape means when we try to draw a circle it would automatically make that, or when we try to make a line it automatically does that.

    Bring Reading mode - so that scroll doesn't open keyboard. It is annoying!! And it also start scrolling horizontally, which deteriorates the mood of notes revision.

    For editing bring editing mode.

    Formula inserting option, from calculus etc.

    Give option of paste as plain text. So that when copying from web it doesn't copy unnecessary hyperlinks or formatting.

    Thanks

  15. Android Onenote integration with other MS products (Outlook for Android, To-Do,...)

    This goes along with many other requests for the functionality of Android Onenote to be similar to what is available on Windows. Onenote would be much more usable if the integration between other MS products were present.


    • Outlook for Android - Take meeting notes and bring the meeting details into the Onenote page

    • To-Do - Tasks created in Onenote populate in To-Do and notes can be created from tasks in To-do

  18. Add custom page sizes and automatically add new pages

    Current pages have infinite size in Android and users have to manually create new pages.

    Please add a functionality to select paper size (e.g. legal, A4, etc.) and allow manually or automatically adding new pages.

  19. Make it like iOS

    I have always wondered why does OneNote on iOS looks like a proper app while it looks like so outdated on Android. It even lacks important settings and options on the Android. I read somewhere that Microsoft will make it better when they make Android phones so it's a political thing. Perhaps Google is not paying much to Microsoft so they do not feel like they should make a proper app... or better, they make an ugly app to spite Google. How can developers look at the same app on iOS and Android and not see how badly designed the…
