  2. Universal user interface as in iOS and windows

    I have read a lot of comments about this an it would really be helpful if the User interface becomes universal as in iOS and windows.
    Onenote for Android looks really dull and abandoned
    The tags, text formatting and drawing functions are really basic and turn OneNote into a really bad note taking app. It doesn’t take OneNote into its full potential and that’s a shame for Microsoft
    As a current user I would appreciate if this points are taken in consideration for the development of the app

  3. 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.

  6. Adding more custom pens

    I want to be able to add more pens! As of now, I can only have 4 personalized pens. On the Desktop version, I can add many many more (although overall still not as good as the 2016 version). This is a must-have feature for me on the Android version.

  7. OCR

    OCR handwriting recognition.
    Similar to S Note where my handwriting is recognised and becomes searchable, even without doing "ink to text". Is so cool and saves me a lot of time in not having to convert my scribble into text.

  10. Bug: Pasting to MS Office Apps not working since upgrade to Android 10

    Since upgrading to Android 10, pasting to Microsoft Office apps on my Google Pixel 2 XL is not working.

    Example 1: I open a Gmail PDF attachment, selected all on page 1 then copied text. Pasted on Excel just fine. Did the same for page 2, but it's still pasting page 1 on Excel. If I paste on a different app (e.g. Viber, default messenger app), page 2 is pasted

    Example 2: I copied a link from Chrome to OneNote. Nothing gets pasted. If I paste in a different app (e.g. default messenger app, LinkedIn), the link gets pasted.

    Example…

  13. Remove the Ink Shifting

    Hi, I'm using Galaxy Tab S4 and I'm facing an issue. Whenever I write the ink shifts slightly and sometimes a lot. It is clearly noticeable. Please guide me what to do.

    I'm using app version : 16.0.11929.20126 (which is the latest as of this date)

    Updated on: Aug 18, 2019

    FunFact: This issue does not happen when I use the older version of OneNote i.e. of January 2017 (yes that old) but that version has a lag in handwriting and also not as smooth as the newer ones. But yeah that does not have this ink shifting issue.

    Here…

  15. Remember last used notebook and section in clipper

    I often save several web pages to the same part of a notebook. Each time I have to start with my default notebook and navigate from there.

    Why not add the option to remember the last location where something was saved as the default location? It would save me quite a lot of time.

    Thanks

  16. BUG: Handwriting and drawing, offsets to the left

    On a Samsung Tablet, Tab S4, running Android Pie, and latest version:
    Whenever I draw or write anything using the S-Pen, it always offsets what I've written, each letter at a time, 3-4 milimeters to the left, after I complete the shape by lifting the S-Pen.

    This is making it hard to do any precise writing or drawing, and you can't fully predict what you are going to draw.

  18. two finger tap to undo

    I would need a quick way of doing an undo.

    I've seen the standard in other applications is a two finger single tap for a quick undo.

  19. Allow syncing notes from Onenote online to the android app.

    I logged off of OneNote on my Android phone. I updated the app and now after logging back onto OneNote I lost all my notes on the app and cannot sync to the online notes. Please fix that that problem.

    With the older OneNote app the notes were kept up to date on both the web site and the app.

  20. 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.
