  1. OneNote on Android: How to remove Warning "connection may charge extra... turn on airplane"

    Hi,

    Since a few months, i have a Warning on Onenote (always when I use my normal mobile internet): "we noticed the connection you're on may charge extra. To turn off data usage, turn on Arplane mode in Settings".

    The Warning civers one third of display (I have Motorolla Motto G4Plus).

    The warning disappears when the mobile is connected to wifi.

    How can I turn off this warning?

      • 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.

        • Make use of all S-pen features in Samsung

          First, thank you very much for this amazing app! While I love it in my Samsung tablet, there is one thing that Samsung Notes has that I miss in OneNote. That is... the amazing selections of colors and brushes that come with a Samsung Tablet that are not available in OneNote for Android. Would it be possible to integrate them? The writing experience in Samsung Notes is far better than OneNote, although in terms of organisation, syncing with computer... OneNote is far superior

          • Configurable function for Samsung S-Pen's button

            The Samsung Tab S3 comes with an stylus called S-Pen which features a button for the thumb. In Samsung's note taking app this can for example be used to switch to the eraser.

            It would be a nice feature, if you could configure OneNote to react to this button, for example by cycling through pens (press to go to eraser, press again for the highlighter press again to be back to normal pen), or by acting as certain other pen while you hold the button.

            With such a feature, the button would have a meaningful function and so you can…

            • Update Timestamp to latest edit time.

              It should be possible to update the creation timestamp/date that is shown on top of every page. Best would be if the timestamp was showing when page was last updated. Just like in normal Word-documents, we're you have date for last update of document.

              • 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.

                   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.

                  • 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.

                    • 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?

                      • 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!

                            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…

                                    • 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.

                                      • Widget to display entire note

                                        Would be awesome to have a widget similar to that of Google Keep that lets you display an entire note on your homescreen (e. g. a to-do list).
                                        Lacking this feature prevents me from switching to OneNote completely.

                                        • Please make text line up with the rules lines automatically when turned on or at least make it a setting option

                                          I like to use typed words and hand written. I use to use really note books and mainly switched because onenote has the lined feature. It's also nice having them all together and searchable... but please please please can there be a setting where the typed lines automatically line up with the blue lines? I can get them to for a few lines but it gets less and less aligned moving past line 5ish
