  1. Managing images/drawings size in OneNote for Android

    It's already useful that we can use stylus in OneNote for Android. But ,after inserting those drawings or attaching pics, it is only available to modify those at a desktop OneNote, not at the Android app. Hope this feature will soon be made available.

  2. Optimize management of notebook sections syncronized & storage used

    If you open up a couple of notebooks on Android, it rapidly takes up lots of space on the device, and takes ages syncronizing.

    I'd like the ability to optionally set certain OneNote notebooks to fully offline vs only available when connected... so that I can have one small fully synchronized notebook for frequent mobile use; but still have access to browse and search my full archive on an occasional basis (without having to sync the whole thing to my phone)

    Or - just get smarter about caching stuff that I use often, rather than maintaining a complete copy on…

  3. Undo/Redo buttons, keep screen on, set page defaults and export to PDF

    I'd like the following features to be available in the OneNote app:
    1. Undo button and redo rebuttons. These are really important.
    2. Prevent my device from going to sleep when I'm using OneNote
    3. Set default page properties (background, color and size)
    4. Export sections to PDF (and whole notebooks as well) without having to upload to OneDrive

  4. Move notes in the Android app

    I see no way to move/copy pages or sections to other notebooks in the Android app. I'd love to see that happen. It could be integrated into the current behavior; when you long press a page or section, it pops up options to delete or sync the object. You could add a move/copy option that pops another dialog to choose the destination.

  6. Make OneNote Fast!

    I do not use OneNote. I use notepad. Notepad is faster than OneNote. By the time OneNote is open, I have moved on from wanting to write down my idea.

    Here is your general engineering goal: OneNote will be open, completely loaded, and ready to go, On any platform, within 1 second.

    I'm not taking about alternate methods of data entry. I want my notes in less time than it takes to open my paper-based notebook.

  7. default zoom levels for viewing

    It would be FANTASTIC to be able to set a default zoom level, such as 125% or 'Page Width,' that would be automatically applied when a page is loaded to view.

  10. RTL

    Hey,
    There is problem with your Android application, it is showing Hebrew or any RTL language in the reverse.
    For example if I write : ״שלום״ (this is means Hello in Hebrew) in my OneNote program in my computer, I will see this as "םולש" in Android application.
    Please fix this problem because OneNote is the best note solution in the market and this is the only problem it have and I really like it!
    Thanks,
    Teimor

  11. Palm detection for better pen input (or stylus)

    When writing something with a pen/stylus the palm of my hand unintentionally touches the display which leads to an interruption of the pen input or a false recognition or
    page "jumping"...

    This is very hard to prevent on smartphones, phablets and tablets since everyone is used to write on paper on
    flat surfaces where the palm can partially rest on the table

    Palm detection is already a feature on microsoft surface pro tablets, so please also implement it for android.

    This could help at the university while taking notes and also during business meetings. Heck, it would always be usefull…

  12. "Holo" or material design support

    OneNote is beautifully redesigned for iOS 7. All platforms has design principles. Why on android OneNote looks looks like old piece of soft?

  13. Ability to Email a page from Online and Mobile App

    I am trying to switch from Evernote to OneNote - last and most important feature I need is to share my notes via email. I take notes in a meeting from my Android tablet or on the website, then I need to send those notes out to the team. Perhaps there's another way, but simply adding the Email button on the Android app and the online version would be great!

  15. Password

    PASSWORD PROTECTION. Posting in api as this appears to be the only section that is monitored or updated. Please add password protection to android version. Read the forums on Web not just count votes on here. People crying out for this. Third party apps have this security as does iOS and windows phone. #Microsoftfail

  17. Please make it possible to edit pictures shot fot Onenote.

    Category: basic fundamental no-brainer should be in features

    Please make it possible to edit pictures that I have shot for Onenote.

    Right now I have to shoot them with the Android app, open them, edit them and then insert them to Onenote. Evernote lets you do this right away.

  18. Android: Selection Tool

    Pretty simple. I'd like a selection tool so I can move things around. I don't always space things perfectly and a selection tool would be beneficial.

  19. Zoom for android

    Please include a Zoom in and out function.
    I have an S6 and I want to shrink Onenote so I can see the whole note on my screen. Currently it is just huge and can only see a small section of the page. So I want to be able to shrink Onenote to fit my screen

  20. Undo button for drawing

    I have seen undo suggestions by people that accidentally delete stuff and have no means to get it back. If you don't add this please add an undo for drawing mode.

    Drawing on a tablet in a digital format can suck, lets say you accidentally draw one line on top of a drawing. Time to erase, oops both lines were erased, time to redraw the original. It just makes no sense and is cumbersome. Please add undo
