  1. 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?

  2. Chromebook, timeout occurs when typing in unlocked password protected sections.

    When updating my journal on Android version on a Chromebook, which is password protected, typing is interrupted by app applying the time out and needing the password to unlock the section again. It appears that even though I am typing it thinks the app has been inactive because I'm not touching the screen as I would be on a phone.
    The app needs to be aware that it is installed on a Chromebook and therefore should expect both only touchpad and keyboard interaction sometimes.

  3. Default font

    I would like the option to set a default font. I wrote a note that switched between Calibri and Times News Roman six times. That's ridiculous.

  4. Option to turn off pressure sensitivity of pens in Onenote

    I have just started using Onenote for Windows (the new one) and Android.

    I want to turn off the pressure sensitivity of my s-pen (Samsung Galaxy Tab S4) and my Windows pen so that when I write the letters are of uniform thickness.

    With pressure sensitivity on, the notes look very distracting.
    This was not a problem on Onenote 2016 and other Android apps that I have used (Squid).

    Thank you!

  5. Throw out OneNote, it's a joke of an app.

    I thought this was a good app and then three of my notebooks just disappeared. According to the app, I needed to login to sync my notebooks but I was already logged in. So I logged out and then logged back in - the notebooks apparently synced and the result was the loss of months of work. Microsoft Android apps thus far are below par quality - but I should not have expected any better as Microsoft have always released bug-ridden software.

    Now that all of my work is gone, so is this app.

  6. 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!

  10. More pen and highlighter colors pls im starving

    Having only like 10 color options for pen and 2 for highlighters is very depressing when you take a lot of notes. There should be a color wheel/gradient option for both- im considering changing apps because of the lack of options for Android

  12. 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…

  15. 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.

  16. 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

  17. Add functions for Huawei M-Pen

    On Huawei Mediapad M5 Pro, the Huawei M-Pen has 2 buttons that are completely unutilized in OneNote.
    Please integrate some functions, maybe configurable by the user, like to swap from Pen to Eraser.

  19. header

    Add handwriting recognition

    First of all, i like OneNote! but not on Andriod.
    There are some points which are horrible like the handwriting recognition, because there isn't one for the header.
    The Windows-version allows to handwrite the header but Android does not. And i can't understand why, because Android or Samsung, both come with built-in handwriting recognition. So that would be great, if you please add it!
