  1. 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…

  2. Allow me to save OneNote files locally on an android tablet

    My company blocks cloud storage. I cannot log in to OneNote from my Desktop PC. I have a tablet that I use to take notes with OneNote, but I cannot get the files from the tablet to the PC, or vice versa. I want to be able to save OneNote files from my tablet on the tablet, and not in cloud storage, such that I can move them back and forth between my Desktop PC to synchronize them.

  3. Managing images/drawings size in OneNote for Android

    It's already useful that we can use stylus in OneNote for Android. But ,after inserting those drawings or attaching pics, it is only available to modify those at a desktop OneNote, not at the Android app. Hope this feature will soon be made available.

  4. Improve sync speeds in app

    App syncs pretty slowly, cannot switch from Simplenote fully until sync times are on par.

  5. Zoom lock feature for handwriting

    While using onenote for taking handwritten notes I often experience that my hand on the glass causes unintended zoom in and out - resulting in my notes beeing in sizes...

    So - I propose a zoom-lock feature on the drawing toolbar.

  6. Undo/Redo buttons, keep screen on, set page defaults and export to PDF

    I'd like the following features to be available in the OneNote app:
    1. Undo button and redo rebuttons. These are really important.
    2. Prevent my device from going to sleep when I'm using OneNote
    3. Set default page properties (background, color and size)
    4. Export sections to PDF (and whole notebooks as well) without having to upload to OneDrive

  9. Crop Image

    You can crop images on the Online version of onenote but not on the desktop or the Android app. I never take an image framed correctly. It would be nice to have at least a crop tool.

  11. Option to sort pages by title or reverse date order.

    I realize the app emulates a paper notebook where you add notes to blank pages at the end as you go, but this isn't a paper notebook, and should be more convenient than one. I often access my recent notes and don't like scrolling all the way to the bottom of the page list every time. There should be an easy. persistent sorting option - either by name or reverse creation date.

  12. 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).

  13. Move a page within a section

    Very happy the move-page-to-other-notebook feature was added. We still need the ability to move a page within a section/tab. Ideally, it would also allow sorting the pages since, in some cases, the pages are organized in a sequence.

    Thanks for voting for this suggestion! I’m pleased to announce that we’ve just released a new version of OneNote on Android which includes the ability to reorder pages freely. Update to the latest version through Google Play, try it out, and let us know what you think!

  14. Move notes in the Android app

    I see no way to move/copy pages or sections to other notebooks in the Android app. I'd love to see that happen. It could be integrated into the current behavior; when you long press a page or section, it pops up options to delete or sync the object. You could add a move/copy option that pops another dialog to choose the destination.

  15. Why is the android version of OneNote so watered down?

    For any religious user of Onenote on Windows, the contrast in functionality between the Windows version and the android version is just painful. Simple things like page size formatting (i.e. setting paper size preference - A3, A4, Letter size, Tabloid size etc) are not available on the Android app. These things matter when you want to print out your notes. It is super frustrating to have handwritten notes that randomly spill over onto the next page when you are trying to print out notes that were taken on the android version because you have no ability to limit the page…

  16. Restore Audio Recording Feature

    I can't believe you've removed the ability to record audio clips in notes in the latest update. Please restore this feature immediately, I'm lost without it!

  17. look at onenote for the ipad pro....copy and paste

    Seriously, OneNote for android is barely usable. Unfortunately, my company won't support an ipad pro therefore I'm stuck with the Android tab S3. Even more unfortunate is that I'm likely going to have to abandon electronic notes as this app is not very good. I find the pen less accurate (which you can't do anything about) however being able to lasso select, change the color and thickness of your highlighter, and have the ability to open a section group created on a desktop would be a good start. Not sure why one note is especially horrible on Android.....Word seems to…

  18. Enable Autocorrect

    There is no autocorrect or predictions when using Android keyboard with latest OneNote! Makes it really hard to type notes!

  19. Add equation to the mobile application as it is in Windows

    When you can add an equation from Windows, you only see "[equation]" in your Android phone. It would be good at least to see the equation as an image.
