  2. Galaxy Tab S4 Palm Rejection

    Whenever I use my S-pen on the Tab S4 to take notes on OneNote there's dots or stripes on the screen where my palm touches it. In the samsung notes app there's the option to 'just use the S-pen', or on other apps the palm rejection works almost completely flawlessly. It's just the Onenote app that doesn't have any of these options. I wish there was better palm rejection on the OneNote app too.

  3. Add 2 iOS functions. 1. Thumbnails if the note has an image. 2. YouTube videos embedded

    Add thumbnails of the images like you did in iOS version.
    And allow to see YouTube videos from Android.
    These 2 functionalities have been in iOS OneNote since 2016 and are not yet available in Android. We feel like 2nd class citizens. https://www.digitaltrends.com/computing/onenote-online-video-embed-update/

  4. Pointer

    OneNote needs a "laser" pointer. I use oneNote for teach maths and Physics and I need it to explain better.

  6. Ability to change fonts

    Why does OneNote on Android not have the font choices that are present in Word for Android? I really hate the default font and it's not as clear as monospace or serif fonts. While writing a long content, reviewing the default font becomes quite stressful.

  8. Night Mode / Dark pages

    I'm using one note on a Tab S4 for school sometimes for 6+ hours a day. Adding a night mode would make the app easier on the eyes, save A LOT of battery life, and help stop screen burn in on oled devices. Also it looks really good.

    Currently I'm using an add-on on the desktop app which let's me use dark pages which I can then sync allowing me to use it on my mobile app but I have to do that every time i want to create a new page on my tablet which is kind of a…

  9. Make this compatable with more versions of android

    No reason that this shouldn't work with a tablet just a year old. List what tablets or versions of android do work with this.

  10. 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.

  11. Put some money and ambition in the OneNote Project

    Looking at the competition, OneNote is sorely needing some love. I use the Android version and it isn't as user friendly as smaller developers' apps. For example, there are several versions on PC and they are not compatible with the latest version. Moreover, the latest versions are so stripped down as to be just enough to get by. Like the Sketch functionality is not really up to scratch. It's like drawing on the back of a napkin. No straight lines or shapes are available. And no grid functionality. There is no handwriting functionality worth the name either in the Android…

  12. One note gets 'stuck', won't change notebooks, etc.

    Using onenote app on Samsung S6 w/ android 9, One UI 1.5. Synching notebooks to work computer (office 365) through onedrive. Was working fine up till couple days ago, not it just gets stuck. closing and reopening works but annoying. Also I found a couple times that i'd have a notebook on my tablet that was different than the version on onedrive. That was probably me as i find onedrive confusing (personal/sites/shared with everyone, etc) but what i realize is that on the app you cant see the 'file path' which would be great to help figure out syncing issues.

  15. writings with Galaxy S-pen moves slightly on Android

    i believe that so many people raised same inconvenience already.

    when i write with Galaxy S-pen on Android Onenote, the writings moves slightly.

    when will you fix this problem.

    there is no such problem on same Android office(Word,Excel). onlly Onenote has the problem.

    i cannot help but believe MS doesn't want to solve it intentionally.

    finally, i had used all Onenote version - Window, iOS, Android.

    Android version is most suck, everybody knows.

    it would be greatly appreciated to clear this inconvenience.

    thank you.

  16. Audio recording compatible with OneNote 2016 (wav, mp3)

    I would like to suggest to use the WAV format for recordings (or MP3) on both Android and Office 2016 versions of OneNote.

    Then both applications can playback audio without issues and good quality.

    Actually I record using the Android recorder in WAV then attach de note to OneNote. This way I can listen to them natively in OneNote 2016. But this is not native on Android. It has to launch an external app.

    Thank you very much and best regards!

  18. rotate images

    Using Samsung Tab S3. No option to rotate image that I inserted. Really disappointed in how OneNote for Android is behind Windows and iOS. And there is the Surface Duo coming out. This needs to be fixed.

  19. Smaller Title Bars

    Can you please shrink the gigantic title bars on Onenote? they are hardly necessary, and take up valuable screen real estate on tablets

    Thanks

  20. Allow Multiple Accounts for Sticky Notes

    Only the first account you add to OneNote will sync with Sticky Notes. Mutltiple Accounts (such as Work and Personal) will not sync and there is no option to add or switch to the other account.

    I have a Samsung S10+ running OneNote 16.0.12325.20242, and this issue was replicated by another user.

    For reference: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/forum/msofficeonenote-msoamobile-mso_365hp/personal-sticky-notes-not-showing-in-onenote-on/eb121116-e5e7-4976-89c3-d8c791ecad18
