    • Allow to read .msg files built into the app

      I often attach the original E-Mail into a OneNote page to retain somewhat a feel of not having changed the original e-mail.

      Problem is that you have ot use an external app such as "EML Reader" or the Outlook app, which is not really feasible to just install an extra app for that that i have no use otherwise for.

        • 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

          • Undo button in Android app

            Please try to enter an "undo" function in the oneNote app for Android. We must have a way to recover part of text deleted within the note while typing. Thank you!

            • Sync needs to be much better

              When I tried to look at my notes online the didn't seem to have been sync'd at all. Forcing a sync through the app appeared to be successful but I still couldn't see my files.

              I followed this article https://support.office.com/en-us/article/fix-sync-issues-in-onenote-for-ios-or-android-3d7fd4e9-0fb9-4983-9853-b61b263b0f78 which suggested to attempt to logout on the phone and then log back in again. However when I logged back in again all my notes had been lost. That's two years of notes lost!

              - how is it possible that I could have been using the app for 2 years without realising that it wasn't syncing?
              - why didn't the…

                  • sd

                    OneNote can not be installed on the SD card, nor the cache, nor the default Notebook location. It is an option that Evernote implemented already a long time!

                    • Protect access to the OneNote app with fingerprint (as OneDrive already does!)

                      Protect access to the OneNote app with fingerprint (as OneDrive already does!)

                      Information stored on OneNote can be as sensitive as the one available on OneDrive, so we would need to use fingerprint (or a "global" PIN) to start OneNote on Android.

                      I'm aware that "protected sections" exist, but for most users it would be convenient to allow access to OneNote only after validating the fingerprint or via a PIN, exactly as the OneDrive app does.

                        When you import images from Office Lens there appears to be no ability to be able to rotate the image or even export it in the Android app.

                        • Zoom lock feature for handwriting

                          While using onenote for taking handwritten notes I often experience that my hand on the glass causes unintended zoom in and out - resulting in my notes beeing in sizes...

                          So - I propose a zoom-lock feature on the drawing toolbar.

                          • Ink to text

                            I am using Onenote on lenovo yoga book, android version. I have noticed that many key features of the windows version do not appear in the android one. In particular, I cannot convert handwritten notes to text, which is very important for me.

                            Could you please add it? It would be really helpful for educational purposes.

                              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.

                                  • Audio recording created on Android difficult to listen to on Windows - bug

                                    Have an issue where I created a new page in an existing Notebook and added an audio recording on Android 8. When I open the page in Windows I can not get the 'Playback' tab/menu to appear and only way to listen is through double click and open with external app. However, if I then add an audio from Windows onto same page, all works as normal and I can listen to Android audio from within OneNote and can see Playback tab.

                                      • Add simplified task list management support to Android app (same feature as iOS)

                                        The iOS app has a very useful feature for lists of tasks. It allows the user to change the view of the page to be like a task management app, that makes it much easier to check off tasks, and add new tasks, particularly when out and about (such as checking off items on a grocery list).

                                        • Low-latency stylus support for Pixelbook Pen

                                          Please support low input-latency for the pixelbook pen. As of now it is embarrassingly laggy as compared to Evernote, etc.
