  2. Change size of the page

    It would be great if I you would add an option to toggle on and off infinite scrolling both diagonally and horizontally and if you could instead use the size of the page you want like A4 or A5. I just want to use one note like I would use normal notebook, (kinda like app bamboo paper).

  4. searching tags

    Please add the functionality to search for tags like in OneNote for windows.
    I would be able search for all the question tags by typing "question" (with quotes) in the search bar.

  5. Automatically remove empty note if exited

    I click "add" in order to summarize, but finally I have nothing to write and I exit the note. The not is saved empty and with no title. There is no point to those notes.
    I would like them to be automatically removed or at least have a cleanup option.

  6. Dark Mode NOW!

    Come on people let's send this query to them because it's so necessary and all other important Note Apps have it. But yes, Microsoft aaalways slower. Too big seems they can't handle.

    Please give us Dark Mode for our eyes.

    Thanks!

  7. Recent View - Way to return to parent section

    When opening items from Recent View there is no way to display the book structure and so it is impossible to go to a parent page from a recent page. This means you have to find the notebook and open it that way to get the structure

  8. 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…

  9. Notebook List navigation bug regression

    The OneNote for Android "new icon" release contains the Notebook List navigation bug. This was fixed previously during this year.

    The Notebook list will change the list focus to the last accessed notebook when synchronizing each notebook. This impacts a user's ability to navigate the notebook list when the number of notebooks require scrolling.

    Videos documenting the issue within Android Emulator.
    https://youtu.be/zU1gePCrm3w
    https://youtu.be/OdvbqoSTzwc

    The issue is reproducible on any Android hardware device.

    This has been reported in the Android Google+ group before it was shutdown.

  10. add next/previous instance buttons in search/find on page

    what's the point of a digital note taking software if it doesn't have the proper search/find on page function?
    onenote for android will highlight everything you search, but will only navigate to the first instance of the word you search. there is absolutely no way to jump to the next instance/word. this has made this software useless.
    i imported everything from evernote to onenote before finding out this defect. guess I have to stick to the evernote.
    please fix this! it is such a basic function and not that hard to implement!

  11. Galaxy Tab S4 - S Pen Usability Issue When Highlighting Text

    OneNote for Android has a basic usability issue when you highlight text using Samsung’s S Pen on the Galaxy Tab S4.

    If you use the S Pen to highlight a word, you cannot drag the handles to highlight words either side of the selected word using the S Pen.

    To select words either side of the highlighted word, you must use your finger or another non-S Pen stylus to move the handles to the desired location.

    In contrast, Word for Android allows you to move the handles with the S Pen.

    Can you please include this basic functionality to OneNote…

  12. Have the Android app open for OneNote when a OneNote link is used from another app.

    When I was using Evernote, I was able to copy the link to any note and past it in an event in Google Calendar. When I saw the event on my phone, I was able to click the link in the notes area and the mobile app for Evernote would open. The Notion app does this too. It's only OneNote that doesn't. Why?! Whenever I click OneNote's note links, it opens a web page in my browser where I have to log in. Please - have OneNote for Android open on mobile when links to notes in OneNote are used…

  15. Automatically open last edited page

    On other OneNote clients the last page edited opens automatically on startup. On Android this was the same until an update changed it to "recent pages". From a workflow perspective it would be great to have the choice in the settings to either open the last edited page or go to the recent page overview

  19. Chinese font on the mobile phone is abnormal!

    OneNote for Android has a problem for a long time:
    I set the Chinese default font XX on the computer version of OneNote, so now the first few Chinese characters entered on the mobile version of OneNote are the default font XX, and then suddenly changed to Microsoft Yahoo font. This is simply ridiculous! !
    Many Chinese users have the same problem, but OneNote has not fixed this bug, never.

  20. Alternative cloud storage/ sync location options

    On the Android app you should consider offering individuals their choice of note storage location for syncing. Not everyone uses OneDrive so it would be beneficial to be able to choose other options e.g. Dropbox, box, mega sync etc etc etc based on existing workplace/ individual sync location policies or practice. Most of these provide a local sync folder and any one note file can be placed there for syncing. People like options....just a thought
