  1. Different OneNote versions?

    I really hate it that I have to use all kind of different versions of OneNote. I have Windows 10, Android and iOS.

    Why not one version on all those operating systems?

    • error 0xE0000648

      Hello,
      I'm trying to use one not on my tablet android, but as soon it starts it shows the error 0xE0000648. It shows this error immediately, so before I can log in the app.
      How can I resolve it?

      • Editing Note Container's width on Android's OneNote to visualize long outlined notes better (like on Windows 10)

        It's of a big need to add the feature of editing Note Container's width and position for OneNote Android App like on Windows.

        I have long nested paragraphs with many subordinate paragraphs and long outlines. This makes the text not to be fitting good in the default small width of Note Container on the OneNote Android app. Below is attached screenshots (desktop_screenshot_1, android_screenshot_1) to show the difference of displaying the same notebook page on Windows app and Android app.

        A temporary trick I've tried is that I added another Note Container from the Windows app. Surprisingly, this enabled the Note…

        • Include find tags function

          Please add find tags function to Android. So often, I want to remind myself of the tasks I have created at work but am unable to do so without accessing a PC. It would be such a shame to have to go to another provider and use their apps to be able to do this when I am happy with OneNote in every other respect.

          • Chromebooks

            10inch + Chromebooks should be able to get full featured versions of office and it should count against our full desktop version limits. ****, you could kill two birds with one stone and make it a Linux version because we can use them too.

              • Mind Maps in OneNote

                Mind maps are great for note taking and structuring ideas. Having this ability in OneNote would make OneNote THE place to take notes be that in text paragraphs, picture, annotations or mind maps!

                  • Design parity with iOS

                    Make the Android app have design parity/consistency with the iOS app. All you have to do is place both versions side by side and you can start spotting the differences.
                    For example, the tools under the Draw tab look different compared to the iOS app. Why don’t they look exactly the same?

                    • Disable finger for writing when using an active stylus

                      If you are using an active stylus (like the S Pen) there should be a way to draw with the pen but pan the note around using your finger. Every other note application on android has this feature.

                      • Allow to read .msg files built into the app

                        I often attach the original E-Mail into a OneNote page to retain somewhat a feel of not having changed the original e-mail.

                        Problem is that you have ot use an external app such as "EML Reader" or the Outlook app, which is not really feasible to just install an extra app for that that i have no use otherwise for.

                          OneNote can not be installed on the SD card, nor the cache, nor the default Notebook location. It is an option that Evernote implemented already a long time!

                               If I'm going to search in onenote on my computer, cursor will jump to the matching text strings.

                              If I search on my mobile phone Samsung S7 edge, I only get the pages, where the text string is matching, but I do not get the result on the page.

                                    The ability to record my lecturer and take notes at the same time would be fantastic.
                                    Currently if I record the audio them it locks out the whole app so that recording is the only thing I can do, making a fantastic feature totally useless.

                                    • Audio recording created on Android difficult to listen to on Windows - bug

                                      Have an issue where I created a new page in an existing Notebook and added an audio recording on Android 8. When I open the page in Windows I can not get the 'Playback' tab/menu to appear and only way to listen is through double click and open with external app. However, if I then add an audio from Windows onto same page, all works as normal and I can listen to Android audio from within OneNote and can see Playback tab.

                                      • Include more functionalities available in the Desktop app

                                        There are a lot of wonderful functions in the desktop version that you can't get in the android version, which is really inconvenient when you're using a Chromebook due to lack of keyboard shortcuts. The ability to make subpages and section groups should also be included to keep things more organized.

                                          I am using Onenote on lenovo yoga book, android version. I have noticed that many key features of the windows version do not appear in the android one. In particular, I cannot convert handwritten notes to text, which is very important for me.

                                          Could you please add it? It would be really helpful for educational purposes.
