  1. Make Subpages Collapsable

    To make page navigation easier in the Android app, I would like to have the ability to collapse subpages underneath their master page groups

    The way it is now, I have pages and subpages neatly collapsed in my Windows client. When I view that same notebook in the Android app, I can see page-subpage relationships, but I cannot collapse pages. So instead of having 10-12 pages to scroll through, I have nearly 100 pages to scroll through to find the one I'm looking for.

      • [BUG] fix the error 0xe0001068 bug for android. It's been 6 months. Come on devs!!!!!!

        Using XXX@XXX.com, the company email address provided to us by Microsoft office, no associate can use onenote on their android phones.
        The only solution for over 6 months has been to log out, log in with an @Hotmail etc account, and THEN log in with business accounts.
        I'm wondering why this hasn't been resolved???? We have over 100 associates all around the US who use android and do not access our company notebook solely for this reason. Do we need to change our email provider to google instead?

        • Sorting notes in Onenote Android

          I have imported around 3k (tagged) notes from Evernote to Onenote and now have one notebook for every tag.
          Documents inside the notebook are listed in random order and there apparently is no way to sort it in any different way.

          Not optimal when working with thousands of documents deployed accross many different notebooks, which titles I will obviously will never be able to remember.

          I hope this essential (and very basic) feature is only missing from Onenote Android, and that I will be able to address it by ordering my stuff in Onenote desktop and syncing the modification to…

          • Format editing and highlighting

            Format editing (bold, itallic, underline) is hard - I need to go in menu for each word. Make the bar smaller and always available when editing note (like in Evernote, with checkbox option, ident, formating and easy highlighting).

            I miss highlighting with the cursor without using stylus or a finger (it looks messy). I like using sylus in some cases and it is great feature but it is hard to do quick highlighting by selecting text and clicking the option or having a cursor that will hihligt selected text (it should have more than one color for this option).

            • Syncing is slow/bad feedback

              Somehow syncing is super slow compared to what I had on my WP8 (not the syncing itself, but it seems to take long before it starts after the app is opened. I expect it to be done in the background or at least start immediately when opening the app). And, a way to get confirmed that/when the note is synced would be nice.

              • Import pdf as Onenote notebook itself, with each PDF page on separate OneNote page

                When I import PDF's the OneNote page just expands to fit every page of the PDF. I would like each PDF page to be it's own OneNote page. I used to use S Note, which imported each page of the PDF as a separate page in my notebook. Very useful!

                  • Open Notebooks from Dropbox

                    Given MSFT's partnership with Dropbox, I would love to see the ability to open notebooks stored in Dropbox on the various Mobile apps.

                    In particular, I would love to open my Dropbox notebooks on Android.

                    • Recycle bin to restore deleted pages, sections or notebooks

                      I accidentally deleted a page in Onenote app on my android app. It happened because the app is buggy and laggy. There is no undo option, nor can I see any recycle bin, which must be a basic feature for a note taking app.

                        • make the format simple

                          on the mobile app it would be a great idea to make all the formatting done on the desktop simple. so that user don't have to zoom in and out just to see everything. just like web clipper working on the note itself.

                            Please add table functionality (insert row/column) in mobile phones. This comes handy on tabulated data which is updated per row. Tables are easy to manipulate in excel eventtually.

                            • Typing in OneNote for Android

                              Hi there,
                              I am having problems in just doing such a simple action i OneNote for Android (OneNote is a note taking ++++ app) - as typing.
                              I use it on my Galaxy s7 Edge smartphone, and having really trouble in -yes just doing the obvious - typing. Sometimes I have to press two, three, four, - yes ten times on the screen just to place the cursor. And just for the record - I have been using OneNote for min. five years now and all this time I have also been using it on Windows Phone - but now…

                                it is very annoying and inconvenient without the sorting feature for section & pages.It is the "as soon as possible" needed feature .

                                    The ability to draw straight lines in the app would be greatly appreciated. As of right now onenote only draws straight lines in the program and not the app.

                                      Evernote knows when a search term/phrase is in an attached Word or PDF. OneNote doesn't. This is a mainstay of Evernote and would make OneNote immensely more useful.
