  1. make the android version the same as the I pad version

    Can you just give the android tablet version the same functionality as the I pad pro version has. Plenty of pen settings, marker settings, insert free space, easier insert anything., no need to shut down drawing if you want to insert something.

  4. Make android tablet onenote apps as GREAT as Ipad!

    There are alot need of improvement for android tablet devices. When IOS get a great onenote apps for theirs ipad, why cant microsoft to make a onenote apps for android tablets thats as great as IOS? im currently using the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 and i found out that the onenote apps sucks on many perspective:

    1. The name of the notebook didnt sync correctly as the one on my Windows 10 laptop.

    2. The drawing pen on the "draw" tab. There's only few selection of colours and the size of the pen cannot be selected equally to the other…

  5. 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.

  6. Android Onenote integration with other MS products (Outlook for Android, To-Do,...)

    This goes along with many other requests for the functionality of Android Onenote to be similar to what is available on Windows. Onenote would be much more usable if the integration between other MS products were present.

    - Outlook for Android - Take meeting notes and bring the meeting details into the Onenote page
    - To-Do - Tasks created in Onenote populate in To-Do and notes can be created from tasks in To-do

  7. why does Android OneNote have such limited functions compared to other OneNote platforms?

    Using a stylus on android OneNote is a terrible experience.
    Compare to OneNote on iPad.
    When is Microsoft going to fix all the gaps in the Android version??

  8. Create SEARCH WIDGET

    We are searching information in notebooks more often than adding new content. Have proposal to create widget for quick searching which can be placed to home screen like "Add note" or "Add photo note".

    Also searching feature can be added to quick menu by long tapping on OneNote app shortcut.

  9. OneNote Android Missing Key Features [Oct-2019]

    OneNote on Android is in desperate need of an update!

    Well, the tablet version at least.

    It's lacking so many features that the Windows and iOS/iPadOS have built-in. I recently bought a Samsung Tab S6, it would be great if the Android developers of this Microsoft product spend some time in this space. This is the best Android tablet in a long time, it would be great to see some of the basic features added such as:

    Insert toolbar missing features
    - An insert table button !!!
    - Symbols
    - Math

    Draw toolbar missing features
    - Maths!!! draw to text…

  11. BUG: Handwriting and drawing, offsets to the left

    On a Samsung Tablet, Tab S4, running Android Pie, and latest version:
    Whenever I draw or write anything using the S-Pen, it always offsets what I've written, each letter at a time, 3-4 milimeters to the left, after I complete the shape by lifting the S-Pen.

    This is making it hard to do any precise writing or drawing, and you can't fully predict what you are going to draw.

  12. OCR

    OCR handwriting recognition.
    Similar to S Note where my handwriting is recognised and becomes searchable, even without doing "ink to text". Is so cool and saves me a lot of time in not having to convert my scribble into text.

  13. Add move to SD

    I know hundreds/thousands people have probably already sent this to you, but enable "move to SD card" for android. At this point, your application is useless to me because it lacks this feature on my tablet. I have a 128GB SD card sitting there with less than 2% used, in a 32 GB tablet, and can't synch my notebooks even though I have all that empty space, because OneNote insists on using 20-something GBs of my internal storage space. Without SD card functionality your app is straight up garbage for anyone who deals with large amounts of data or multimedia…

  15. Change size of the page

    It would be great if I you would add an option to toggle on and off infinite scrolling both diagonally and horizontally and if you could instead use the size of the page you want like A4 or A5. I just want to use one note like I would use normal notebook, (kinda like app bamboo paper).

  16. 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…

  17. Lasso and change ink stroke and color

    It would be incredibly nice if I could lasso something that's already written and change the ink stroke or color. That would save me a TON of time when I realize that I want my ink in another color!

  18. Add font styles and headers

    This idea has already been posted, but the dumb Microsoft employ marked it as "complete" and cited an update completely different from the problem.

    The ability to change text styles, such as to create headers, is a basic, essential, and EASY TO MAKE feature in note apps. It has been done in Google docs for a very long time. It should have been in this app years ago. YEARS AGO. Please add it.

  19. Audio recording and note taking

    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.

  20. Insert Image while inking has too many steps [Bad UX]

    As a student, it is frequent to insert screenshots while inking down notes. However, to do so, it results in a lot of steps and it is very non-userfriendly.
    Steps to reproduce (8)
    - Press "Stop inking"
    - Put down the pen (or else inking mode will be accidentally activated)
    - Click the "Insert" tab
    - Click on the desired position where the image should be
    - Click the "Insert image" button
    - Click "Insert image from gallery"
    - Select image
    - Press"Done"
    Meanwhile, on Samsung Notes. Steps to insert image while inking is as follows: (4)
    - Press "Insert…
