  1. 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.

  2. OneNote使用整体上还比较好,但就是长文本进行体系化整体的时候,变得非常难受。可以加标题,但就是不同自动生成目录。现在方便的方法,就是通过第三方插件,可是隐私安全根本没有办法得到保证,而且还要花钱买。 既然第三方开发者都能开发出来,需求的确存在,微软为什么官方还不开发?哪怕

    OneNote使用整体上还比较好,但就是长文本进行体系化整体的时候,变得非常难受。可以加标题,但就是不同自动生成目录。现在方便的方法,就是通过第三方插件,可是隐私安全根本没有办法得到保证,而且还要花钱买。

    既然第三方开发者都能开发出来,需求的确存在,微软为什么官方还不开发?哪怕付费都有人使用的功能,为什么微软不开发?这点难以理解,你们不是重视客户需求吗?

    请问什么时候才能够重视这个需求,并将产品打造的更好用一些?哪怕付费也可以啊。

  4. Night Mode / Dark pages

    I'm using one note on a Tab S4 for school sometimes for 6+ hours a day. Adding a night mode would make the app easier on the eyes, save A LOT of battery life, and help stop screen burn in on oled devices. Also it looks really good.

    Currently I'm using an add-on on the desktop app which let's me use dark pages which I can then sync allowing me to use it on my mobile app but I have to do that every time i want to create a new page on my tablet which is kind of a…

  5. Link to onenote pages in android and Microsoft store apps

    In the windows version one may add a crosslink to another onenote page. Would love to be able to do that in the onenote store app and Android app too. Pls.

    I have to use the store app for work, and often use Android app on the go, and really miss this function in these app versions. I am a teacher and we plan our units in onenote so linking pages to one another is vital.

  6. Make this compatable with more versions of android

    No reason that this shouldn't work with a tablet just a year old. List what tablets or versions of android do work with this.

  7. Make it like iOS

    I have always wondered why does OneNote on iOS looks like a proper app while it looks like so outdated on Android. It even lacks important settings and options on the Android. I read somewhere that Microsoft will make it better when they make Android phones so it's a political thing. Perhaps Google is not paying much to Microsoft so they do not feel like they should make a proper app... or better, they make an ugly app to spite Google. How can developers look at the same app on iOS and Android and not see how badly designed the…

  8. handwriting to text on OneNote for Android

    Get handwriting to text for OneNote in Android just like in the Windows version. Otherwise, what is the point? I want my Android Notes to transfer to text that I can access on my Windows machine (or elsewhere) later. That is why I would get OneNote on my android device.

  9. The Android version is bad!

    Having used the desktop and iOS versions of OneNote... I could not help but notice how BAD the Android version was.... It seemed kinda anemic compared to the iOS app which looks organised and updated and have many settings to choose from while the Android version is just less than basic. Frankly in 2020 having a major app behaving this way is unacceptable even if it's a free app. Microsoft needs to think of a major overhaul for the Android app

  11. Smaller Title Bars

    Can you please shrink the gigantic title bars on Onenote? they are hardly necessary, and take up valuable screen real estate on tablets

    Thanks

  12. Add 2 iOS functions. 1. Thumbnails if the note has an image. 2. YouTube videos embedded

    Add thumbnails of the images like you did in iOS version.
    And allow to see YouTube videos from Android.
    These 2 functionalities have been in iOS OneNote since 2016 and are not yet available in Android. We feel like 2nd class citizens. https://www.digitaltrends.com/computing/onenote-online-video-embed-update/

  13. We just want fairness and a decent app


    • no shifting of hand-written parts after releasing the pen

    • more than two highlighter options

    • a ruler or any way of making straight lines

    • option to choose the paper format

    • the option to hand-draw shapes and make the program recognize them as such so it automatically perfects them

    • less crashing

    • thank you very much

  15. Lock page scroll to prevent page moving while writing with stylus (Pixelbook Pen)

    Is it possible to lock a page while writing?

    I'm using a Google Pixel Slate / Google Pixelbook Pen. When writing notes with the pen, palm rejection does not seem to work. The page scrolls left / right / up / down and I cannot hold the page in place. Is there a way to limit page movement?

  16. One note voice recorder

    Im currently using Microsoft surface pro and notice that one note has a voice recorder. I used it but it seems like its not working when your writing notes while its recording voice. My classmate showed me an app with this feature called evernote. Would later one note will have same features for note taking?

  17. Put some money and ambition in the OneNote Project

    Looking at the competition, OneNote is sorely needing some love. I use the Android version and it isn't as user friendly as smaller developers' apps. For example, there are several versions on PC and they are not compatible with the latest version. Moreover, the latest versions are so stripped down as to be just enough to get by. Like the Sketch functionality is not really up to scratch. It's like drawing on the back of a napkin. No straight lines or shapes are available. And no grid functionality. There is no handwriting functionality worth the name either in the Android…

  19. searching tags

    Please add the functionality to search for tags like in OneNote for windows.
    I would be able search for all the question tags by typing "question" (with quotes) in the search bar.

  20. writings with Galaxy S-pen moves slightly on Android

    i believe that so many people raised same inconvenience already.

    when i write with Galaxy S-pen on Android Onenote, the writings moves slightly.

    when will you fix this problem.

    there is no such problem on same Android office(Word,Excel). onlly Onenote has the problem.

    i cannot help but believe MS doesn't want to solve it intentionally.

    finally, i had used all Onenote version - Window, iOS, Android.

    Android version is most suck, everybody knows.

    it would be greatly appreciated to clear this inconvenience.

    thank you.
