  1. Lasso and change ink stroke and color

    It would be incredibly nice if I could lasso something that's already written and change the ink stroke or color. That would save me a TON of time when I realize that I want my ink in another color!

  3. 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…

  4. Enable AutoCorrect in the new OneNote

    I use AutoCorrect extensively - it's a great time saver!
    The new OneNote doesn’t use the AutoCorrect entries that I have setup in Word and Excel whereas the old OneNote did.
    This is preventing me from using the new AutoCorrect

  5. Add font styles and headers

    This idea has already been posted, but the dumb Microsoft employ marked it as "complete" and cited an update completely different from the problem.

    The ability to change text styles, such as to create headers, is a basic, essential, and EASY TO MAKE feature in note apps. It has been done in Google docs for a very long time. It should have been in this app years ago. YEARS AGO. Please add it.

  7. Optimize page view - empty space on top/left side of page

    On some pages I have the issue that I see blank space on the top or on the left side of the page. Moving or scrolling to the right/bottom of the page is not possible because the visible part of the page always jumps back.

    The smaller screens of smartphones are not well utilized.

    As mentioned this issue only occurs with some pages. There are pages that show the headline in the top left corner, other pages have an "offset" on the left, it's not possible to move the page to the left border of the screen (see attachment) and…

  8. Audio recording and note taking

    The ability to record my lecturer and take notes at the same time would be fantastic.
    Currently if I record the audio them it locks out the whole app so that recording is the only thing I can do, making a fantastic feature totally useless.

  9. Straight lines and basic shapes

    Graphing would be so much easier if this was possible. Having to graph on a line that looks like anything but a straight line isn't easy.

  10. Identify unread pages on OneNote for Android (bold)

    On the Windows versions of OneNote (both OneNote 2016 and the Windows 10 App) I can easily identify all the unread pages as they are showed in BOLD. This is especially useful when you have a shared notebook.

    All this is not working on OneNote for Android: the unread pages are not showed in BOLD or marked in any other way and I had to search them through the "recent notes" button… ending up losing many new contents.

    Is it possible to show all the unread pages in BOLD also in OneNote for Android?

  11. Sync with Samsung Notes

    Samsung has moved beyond its old S-Notes app to Samsung Notes. It would be a killer feature to be able to sync Samsung Notes to OneNote. I use OneNote across Windows, iOS and now Android and love it. The ability to jot notes on the Galaxy Note lock screen is amazing and would be great if those notes could show up in OneNote

  12. Ink to text Galaxy S4 Tab

    Add the functionality for Ink-to-Text in OneNote for Android Tablets. Not everyone has, or wants, to own a Surface and this feature would be delightful for those of us who use tablets for note taking with customers. The Samsung Galaxy S4 Tab is an excellent device with a lot of capabilities, but the OneNote version for Android is seriously lacking in capabilities like Ink-to-Text

  14. Reduce App Size

    The apps are extremely huge. I cannot believe that just OneNote is more than 80 MB plus all extras is more than 200 MB.

    The full pack of all Office Apps can be more than 1 GB.

  16. Allow flight mode message to be dismissed

    When mobile device is on roam a constant and annoying message that can't be dismissed takes up valuable screen space. This message should either be able to be dismissed, or removed completely.

    As a European I constantly use my phone on roam in many countries at no additional cost. This message is redundant in that case.

    As a non-US user my mobile network offers me good rates for the rest of the world that do not cost more than I want. Therefore this message is redundant.

    At least it should be dismissed, and should be able to be turned off…

  17. Insert Image while inking has too many steps [Bad UX]

    As a student, it is frequent to insert screenshots while inking down notes. However, to do so, it results in a lot of steps and it is very non-userfriendly.
    Steps to reproduce (8)
    - Press "Stop inking"
    - Put down the pen (or else inking mode will be accidentally activated)
    - Click the "Insert" tab
    - Click on the desired position where the image should be
    - Click the "Insert image" button
    - Click "Insert image from gallery"
    - Select image
    - Press"Done"
    Meanwhile, on Samsung Notes. Steps to insert image while inking is as follows: (4)
    - Press "Insert…

  19. code block formatting

    I'm a developer and I'm constantly finding snippets of code that would be useful in the future. I was wondering if there is an in-app formatting option for code-blocks like Evernote has? This is very annoying:

  20. inline

    Keep pictures/drawings inline with text... Basically, when you add text the text below moves down with each enter. But when drawing something, for example, drawing an arrow to a specific line of text then you add text above the original text with the arrow the origninal text moves down but the arrow does not. Any drawing does not move with the flow.
