  3. Auto-width view mode

    Onenote differs from most note managers by writing on several blocks of text on an infinite canvas, instead of a single block of text. This has advantages, especially on large screens, but it makes reading on the mobile a horrible experience.
    It would be good if from mobile apps we can switch to reading mode, which adjusts the text block to the device width and the font size is what is adjusted when zooming (not the text block).

    Regarding those pages where the user has several blocks of text in different places on the canvas, I can think of two…

  5. Insert Meeting Details from Calendar in App

    Similar to inserting meeting details from calendar in the desktop versions of OneNote. This feature should also be available to the android and iOS given that more people are shifting to rely on their mobile devices (phones and tablets) for notetaking and meetings.

  6. Ability to change fonts

    Why does OneNote on Android not have the font choices that are present in Word for Android? I really hate the default font and it's not as clear as monospace or serif fonts. While writing a long content, reviewing the default font becomes quite stressful.

  8. Add a List Mode

    There used to be a "list mode" in the iPhone app, where I could sort my tasks or hide completed task.

    The idea here is to bring this list mode to the Android app, possibly with the list previews in my pages list.

  9. More functions for the OneNote App Tablets/Smartphones

    Symbol / Shape insert function is missing in the app. It would be much easier to quickly insert a perfect circle or an X / Y coordinate system. Each time to sign by hand is very difficult ...

  10. Make Android version of OneNote similar to Windows 10 version

    The OneNote app for Android is horrible in comparison to the Windows 10 version. I am an engineering student and I have used the Windows 10 version and absolutely loved it. However, I recently started using a Samsung Tab S3 and I have realized the Android version is absolutely terrible compared to the Windows 10 version. The following are my reasons:


    1. The button on the S Pen is not able to be used as an eraser which, when having to take quick notes, is an inconvenience.


    2. The pen options are absolutely laughable, there is plenty of space to add more…

  11. A button to reset zoom level

    When we zoom on a page, OneNote remembers that. When we come back later, there is no way to reset the zoom level to the default 100% view. One has to guess what it should be.

    A button to reset zoom level on a page would be nice.

    Can you enable keyboard shortcuts for the Android version of OneNOte. I have a bluetooth keyboard and now have a nexdock ,so when I am working in onenote I would like at least some of the same shortcuts. Especially I need control+end and control+home, i have some long pages and no easy way to scroll through them. The time and date function would be nice as well. A scroll bar to move quickly through a page etc

  13. OneNote auf Android, alles nach dem aus und wieder einloggen weg

    Hallo, so gut bin ich leider nicht in Eglisch um ein Problem zu schildern.

    Mein OneNote auf Androidhandy hat nicht mehr syncronisiert, musste ich mich ausloggen und wieder einloggen. Nach dem Einloggen war ich überrascht, dass alles weg war und das Programm hat sich wie bei neuem Nutzer verhalten. Ich habe mich unter Windows 10 angemeldet und da versucht zu retten aber leider da sah es auch alles, wie auf dem Android Handy.

    Ich bitte um Ihre Hilfe und bedanke mich im Voraus.

    Liebe Grüße

    Hadi Gassem

  14. Margins

    The margins on in the onenote app on Android doesn't work as the onenote on PC or Lumia phones. Even if I change the margins on the PC it stays the same on the android please fix this.

  17. Bug: pen strokes moves after releasing the pen from the screen

    There is a problem when using the pen, I have seen it in the galaxy tab s3 and now in Huawei Mate 20 X.

    When writing with the pen, the stroke moves like a millimeter up. So writing notes with the pen is a terrible experience. While the pen is down the stroke follows the tip of the pen without problems, but after releasing the pen from the screen, the written strokes move up.

  19. OneNote is not available on Samsung Tab S7

    Why can't Microsoft, Google, and Samsung not figure out how to make OneNote work on a Samsung Tablet.

    So, at this point I guess my option is simple. Return the Galaxy Tab S7+ and purchase an iPad.
    Apple and Microsoft engineers apparently know how to make OneNote work on an iPad.
