  1. RTL

    Hey,
    There is problem with your Android application, it is showing Hebrew or any RTL language in the reverse.
    For example if I write : ״שלום״ (this is means Hello in Hebrew) in my OneNote program in my computer, I will see this as "םולש" in Android application.
    Please fix this problem because OneNote is the best note solution in the market and this is the only problem it have and I really like it!
    Thanks,
    Teimor

  2. Palm detection for better pen input (or stylus)

    When writing something with a pen/stylus the palm of my hand unintentionally touches the display which leads to an interruption of the pen input or a false recognition or
    page "jumping"...

    This is very hard to prevent on smartphones, phablets and tablets since everyone is used to write on paper on
    flat surfaces where the palm can partially rest on the table

    Palm detection is already a feature on microsoft surface pro tablets, so please also implement it for android.

    This could help at the university while taking notes and also during business meetings. Heck, it would always be usefull…

  3. "Holo" or material design support

    OneNote is beautifully redesigned for iOS 7. All platforms has design principles. Why on android OneNote looks looks like old piece of soft?

  4. Ability to Email a page from Online and Mobile App

    I am trying to switch from Evernote to OneNote - last and most important feature I need is to share my notes via email. I take notes in a meeting from my Android tablet or on the website, then I need to send those notes out to the team. Perhaps there's another way, but simply adding the Email button on the Android app and the online version would be great!

  6. Password

    PASSWORD PROTECTION. Posting in api as this appears to be the only section that is monitored or updated. Please add password protection to android version. Read the forums on Web not just count votes on here. People crying out for this. Third party apps have this security as does iOS and windows phone. #Microsoftfail

  8. Please make it possible to edit pictures shot fot Onenote.

    Category: basic fundamental no-brainer should be in features

    Please make it possible to edit pictures that I have shot for Onenote.

    Right now I have to shoot them with the Android app, open them, edit them and then insert them to Onenote. Evernote lets you do this right away.

  9. Android: Selection Tool

    Pretty simple. I'd like a selection tool so I can move things around. I don't always space things perfectly and a selection tool would be beneficial.

  10. Zoom for android

    Please include a Zoom in and out function.
    I have an S6 and I want to shrink Onenote so I can see the whole note on my screen. Currently it is just huge and can only see a small section of the page. So I want to be able to shrink Onenote to fit my screen

  11. Undo button for drawing

    I have seen undo suggestions by people that accidentally delete stuff and have no means to get it back. If you don't add this please add an undo for drawing mode.

    Drawing on a tablet in a digital format can suck, lets say you accidentally draw one line on top of a drawing. Time to erase, oops both lines were erased, time to redraw the original. It just makes no sense and is cumbersome. Please add undo

  12. Zooming (DPI?) on Android phones vs tablets

    I wish for the ability to zoom out more on Android phones. Currently on my Android phones, I can only see part of my lecture slides and notes on my OneNote notebook even when I zoom out to the max. However, when I view the same notebook on my Android tablets, I can zoom out all the way and see all of my lecture slides and notes. I've already tried it on the Samsung Galaxy Note 4, LG G3 and Nexus 6 to no avail. There is no advantage to having a "phablet" since the app isn't maximizing the screen…

  13. Better Share-to OneNote

    I want a few options here. Keep the current share to. Add a "Share to specific notebook / page". Add "Share to last selected page".

    The last case is most important: I often do research on my tablet, and it would be very nice to *not* have to concatenate every single clipping and shared link. It would also be nice to annotate and edit the about to be shared data, without switching to the app.

  14. eraser

    Please provide normal eraser in OneNote for Android. Currently only stroke eraser is provided. I am an engineering student wherein I have to draw many diagrams and if I make a mistake and use the stroke eraser, half the diagram vanishes without ability to undo it or correct it in any way.

  15. The app is awesome but still missing some features.

    I am using both pc and android app for about 2 months.i use mostly the drawing part for documenting my classes.

    -the first thing which is bothering me a lot is there is no undo key!not in typing tab nor in the drawing tab.

    -the second one is there is no save as button on the app!
    it would be better is there was a save button separate from syncing!

    -there is no selection tool,resize,cut,paste or copy in draw tab.some times its needed to resize or copy the drawn object in documentation!

  16. New Widget - Shourtcut to Page/Section/Notes

    This is the most wanted feature by many of my friends.
    I am using OneNote mainly on The pc, but there are some notes that I would like to be able to access quickly on my phone ex. shopping list or totday's todo.

  17. Make the android experience faster and smoother

    I'm grateful that OneNote exists for Android, but as it stands now, it is nowhere near as fast in booting and navigating as for example Google Keep. Part of this is slow syncing in the beginning, but there is an overall sluggishness as well. Any efforts to optimize the android experience would be highly appreciated.

  20. Ability to take multiple photos and upload the whole group when complete, instead of having to approve each photo individually.

    It is a problem that you can only take one picture at a time with camera. Each photo requires your approval before it is saved. Add the ability to take multiple shots at one time. Evernote has this feature.
