  1. Enlargement of Onenote text

    Allow for the text of Onenote notes to be enlarged. It would be great for those who use glasses yet still have difficuty seeing the text.

  2. Fix sync issues! Frequently drops sync with no explanation--doesn't show error on desktop.

    OneNote for Android drops sync and loses data all the time! The amount of time I spend troubleshooting this app almost makes me want to go back to pen and paper.

  3. No equations? seriously?

    For how long can this software claim to be multi-platform if some platforms do see just a piece of the note written on another?

    Seriously, beta was quite some time ago now.

  4. Keep sign-in after updates

    The app is frequently updated, which is great. What is not great is that I have to sign back in every single time this happens. The net result is that almost every time I think of a note I'd like to take on my phone, I have to spend several minutes inputing in my account name and password and waiting for it to sync back up because it hasn't been syncing since the update. This kills any convenience the app could possibly offer. The whole point is quick access to notes, right?

  5. One should not be able to automatically edit an opened note! This drives me nuts as it is so easy to make accidental edits to my notes.

    As with Evernote, please introduce an edit icon that I will have to press first before altering any note. Right now it is so easy to make accidental alterations to important notes, sometimes without realising this.

  6. option to disable/enable the synchronization of files/attachments/pics

    Have an option to disable/enable the synchronization of files/attachments/pics. ie: make it text-only mode. Would greatly increase sync time/speed and not clog up the phone if your Notes have high-res pics. or maybe even make the option selective per notebook? This way you can only download pics for a certain notebook and leave the rest plain-text?

  7. Ability to close <book> and <section> being shown

    ...As it takes up a large amount of screenspace when just quick-reading some notes (not opening them)

    Would like to see more IFTTT events so I can trigger things when I make a new note.

  11. Fix PDF sharing to OneNote

    When I export a PDF file from Dropbox or any other app to OneNote for Android, a new note is created with my PDF file attached. When I try to save the note by tapping the check button, a message tells me that "the content couldn't be added to OneNote" and the note is not saved.
    Please fix this!

  13. Allow multiple OneNote Live Personal on Android

    I have two personal Live accounts but can only login using one on the Android. Using OneNote Mac you can have 2 accounts. I separate personal and work related notes but can't when using the Android version.

    Please add this ability into the Android version.

  15. numbers or words containing digits can't be appended

    Couldn't find where to post a defect (it's ridiculous how difficult it is for OneNote Android), but basically since the last update I cannot append text to words that contain digits (or to numbers for that matter).
    Whenever I try to the whole word gets replaced with the new character.
    This happens no matter where the word is located in the paragraph or whether there's one or more of its kind.
    So far it seems to only affect words that contain digits, but I haven't tested it on other unusual characters like @!% etc.

    I am unable to select pages on any notebook running the latest release of OneNote for Android when I'm in portrait mode. It only allows me to select pages in landscape mode. I tried uninstalling. Anybody have a fix for this?

  17. Let us turn off Auto Capitalization

    Dear Microsoft,

    it seems, that Auto Capitalization has been implemented with last update of OneNote for Android.
    It is very annoing because e.g. in many cases it is not correct to write down first capital letter in a word after dot (full stop), in the bulleted list or structured outline in correct way of writing in Slovak language

    Please, give us an option to turn Auto Capitalization of first letter off.

    I am not able to unshare myself from someone else's notebook. People are forgetting that they have shared; this is a security issue.

  19. Version 16.0.7341.1796 Links don't work on Sony xperia, but do on Nexus 7.

    Links used to link directly to text but now (only on my 'phone) they go to a page called 'Recent Notes' which is no help. I'm posting here on the advice of Suvarna G, Microsoft Community - is it the appropriate place?

  20. Does not listen to OS autocorrect settings

    What gives? You can't turn off autocorrect?

    I'm bilingual and I've set up my keyboard so I get predictions for both languages(Norwegian and English). No autocorrect enabled there except capital letters. I'm using swiftkey on one device and google keyboard on an other.

    So since I've disabled autocorrect in settings for the keyboard I shouldn't encounter autocorrects right? Wrong. For example "Go" gets autocorrected into "Og" and "Gear," into "Gir."

    My deduction is that the app itself has an autocorrect function outside of the OS settings. That is stupid, even worse is that there are no options to turn it…
