  2. Please fix sharing to OneNote on Xiaomi phones

    When sharing from any place to Onenote on my Xiaomi Pocophone, getting the message 'please open OneNote to set it up for sharing'. There is no option for this and numerous others are running into this issue as well when searching online with no resolution found. Seems to happen only on xiaomi phones..
    Please fix sharing to OneNote app as it is a key feature of the app and productivity is way less this way.

  3. Clear formatting from pasted text

    We need the ability to clear the formatting of pasted text in the Android app. It's present in all other major note apps, and it's present on Desktop.

  5. Text Wrapping in OneNote Android

    I am interested to switch to Microsoft One Note from Evernote but the only thing holding me is the Text Wrapping / Fit to Screen issue of OneNote Mobile. I am using Samsung Note 10 and whenever I open a note on it I need to scroll Left/Right to read the whole text. The text does not fit to screen or we can say wraps itself within the screen. Specially the Pictures I have saved for some projects appear huge on the Mobile screen exceeding the screen limits. If I pinch the picture to zoon out for within screen visibility,…

  7. code block formatting

    I'm a developer and I'm constantly finding snippets of code that would be useful in the future. I was wondering if there is an in-app formatting option for code-blocks like Evernote has? This is very annoying:

  9. Allow Multiple Accounts for Sticky Notes

    Only the first account you add to OneNote will sync with Sticky Notes. Mutltiple Accounts (such as Work and Personal) will not sync and there is no option to add or switch to the other account.

    I have a Samsung S10+ running OneNote 16.0.12325.20242, and this issue was replicated by another user.

    For reference: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/forum/msofficeonenote-msoamobile-mso_365hp/personal-sticky-notes-not-showing-in-onenote-on/eb121116-e5e7-4976-89c3-d8c791ecad18

  10. Shortcut To Change Color Of Ink Using Stylus (Hold Side Button & Press Stylus Down On Screen)

    Having a shortcut that utilizes a combination 1. pressing the side button on stylus then (2) pressing and holding stylus down on screen for x amount of seconds to offer a shortcut menu that includes the ability to change your ink color would be helpful.

    I like to use a lot of colors in my notes to designate importance, and constantly switching going to the top of the screen to click the color, then change the color then go back to where i was is a lost of wasted movement.

  11. svg

    Allow import of SVG images. This would be a great way to create templates. Create your image in PowerPoint - could be a form like meeting notes, or daily journal, then save as SVG, and then use the image in OneNote as the background and then use the page as a template. - you can do this with other images - but as an SVG, it would allow ruled line, grid or colored pages to appear through the image in the transparent spots of the image.

  12. Optimize page view - empty space on top/left side of page

    On some pages I have the issue that I see blank space on the top or on the left side of the page. Moving or scrolling to the right/bottom of the page is not possible because the visible part of the page always jumps back.

    The smaller screens of smartphones are not well utilized.

    As mentioned this issue only occurs with some pages. There are pages that show the headline in the top left corner, other pages have an "offset" on the left, it's not possible to move the page to the left border of the screen (see attachment) and…

  14. Capability to load notebook from another folder

    Currently OneNote for Android loads all notebooks from OneDrive Personal\Documents. With a workaround I know how to also load from other folders within OneDrive.

    Thats all good but I host my own cloud and the Android app is not able to load notebooks from locations other than OneDrive.

    Please add the capability to load a notebook from a local folder on the Android device.

  15. 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??

  16. 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.

  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…

  18. Password protected sections timeout issue

    Keeps relocking within minutes, sometimes seconds, of use. Then the cursor is off when unlocked. You then need to press the back button and reposition the cursor.

    Need to fix. Multiple feedbacks submitted for months now.

  19. 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.
