How can we improve OneNote for Android?

Android: Arabic support inside pages

Hi
their is a weird thing on the Android app , it support Arabic on notebooks and sections list , but don't support Arabic inside the page

here are screenshots to make the problem clear :-
1-here you can see that Arabic letters show normally on the sections names

2-here you can see that Arabic is not shown correctly (letters are disjointed )

I currently use onenote on my PC and tablet and I love , the lack of support of Arabic on mobile is a big problem since that make me unable to write on the go

please fix it ASAP , and thanks for all the great work you do :-)

    I have also the same issue, you can write inside the note but in the list it doesn't show the titles!

    After I found out that OneNote doesn't support Arabic on android and this issue was reported since 2014 I will switch to google keep, I will do the same for my OS and email address I will switch from Microsoft to other alternatives.
    thank you for your support.

    Thank you for adding RTL support.
    can you add the option to create a new RTL page?
    On PC when you start a new page and switch the keyboard to RTL language the empty page "text box" will flip to RTL text box, but on the Android app I can't do it.

    I can workaround this by duplicating a page I created on the PC with RTL text in it but it will be nice if I will be able to create a new page directly from android that have a RTL text box like on PC.

    Not fully support
    When writing a sentence, the words are written from left to right, and I couldn't find any way to align right

    Same here from comments it seems better to switch to Google drive as Microsoft seems to have no interest towards Arabic support, it has been mire than 3 years thinks nit that hard but lack of care

    Dear Concerened.
    Hello!
    Good app but No I cannot note in Urdu and Arabic language. It break the words into alphabets when I write in Urdu. Please fix. I dont want to use Google Keep although it lets me write and note in Urdu language.
    Other than Urdu support deficiency, its a first class app.

    Thanks
    Earliest response would be appreciated.

    Really? You have this support on iOS and other ms office apps, why not supporting OneNote also??
