  1. Enable AutoCorrect in the new OneNote

    I use AutoCorrect extensively - it's a great time saver!
    The new OneNote doesn’t use the AutoCorrect entries that I have setup in Word and Excel whereas the old OneNote did.
    This is preventing me from using the new AutoCorrect

  2. Audio recording and note taking

    The ability to record my lecturer and take notes at the same time would be fantastic.
    Currently if I record the audio them it locks out the whole app so that recording is the only thing I can do, making a fantastic feature totally useless.

  4. Identify unread pages on OneNote for Android (bold)

    On the Windows versions of OneNote (both OneNote 2016 and the Windows 10 App) I can easily identify all the unread pages as they are showed in BOLD. This is especially useful when you have a shared notebook.

    All this is not working on OneNote for Android: the unread pages are not showed in BOLD or marked in any other way and I had to search them through the "recent notes" button… ending up losing many new contents.

    Is it possible to show all the unread pages in BOLD also in OneNote for Android?

  5. Sync with Samsung Notes

    Samsung has moved beyond its old S-Notes app to Samsung Notes. It would be a killer feature to be able to sync Samsung Notes to OneNote. I use OneNote across Windows, iOS and now Android and love it. The ability to jot notes on the Galaxy Note lock screen is amazing and would be great if those notes could show up in OneNote

  6. Reduce App Size

    The apps are extremely huge. I cannot believe that just OneNote is more than 80 MB plus all extras is more than 200 MB.

    The full pack of all Office Apps can be more than 1 GB.

  8. Allow flight mode message to be dismissed

    When mobile device is on roam a constant and annoying message that can't be dismissed takes up valuable screen space. This message should either be able to be dismissed, or removed completely.

    As a European I constantly use my phone on roam in many countries at no additional cost. This message is redundant in that case.

    As a non-US user my mobile network offers me good rates for the rest of the world that do not cost more than I want. Therefore this message is redundant.

    At least it should be dismissed, and should be able to be turned off…

  9. Insert Image while inking has too many steps [Bad UX]

    As a student, it is frequent to insert screenshots while inking down notes. However, to do so, it results in a lot of steps and it is very non-userfriendly.
    Steps to reproduce (8)
    - Press "Stop inking"
    - Put down the pen (or else inking mode will be accidentally activated)
    - Click the "Insert" tab
    - Click on the desired position where the image should be
    - Click the "Insert image" button
    - Click "Insert image from gallery"
    - Select image
    - Press"Done"
    Meanwhile, on Samsung Notes. Steps to insert image while inking is as follows: (4)
    - Press "Insert…

  10. two finger tap to undo

    I would need a quick way of doing an undo.

    I've seen the standard in other applications is a two finger single tap for a quick undo.

  12. left hand

    Currently using one note as an android app on my pixelbook, and loving it accept for one occurrence which I believe is due to the fact I am left handed. When ever I try and write something near the left hand side of my screen my palm triggers some short cut to swap to another screen. I would really love to use this app but with out a lefty mode to prevent those shortcuts from happening the app is just not usable.

  13. inline

    Keep pictures/drawings inline with text... Basically, when you add text the text below moves down with each enter. But when drawing something, for example, drawing an arrow to a specific line of text then you add text above the original text with the arrow the origninal text moves down but the arrow does not. Any drawing does not move with the flow.

  14. Widget to display entire note

    Would be awesome to have a widget similar to that of Google Keep that lets you display an entire note on your homescreen (e. g. a to-do list).
    Lacking this feature prevents me from switching to OneNote completely.

  15. add next/previous instance buttons in search/find on page

    what's the point of a digital note taking software if it doesn't have the proper search/find on page function?
    onenote for android will highlight everything you search, but will only navigate to the first instance of the word you search. there is absolutely no way to jump to the next instance/word. this has made this software useless.
    i imported everything from evernote to onenote before finding out this defect. guess I have to stick to the evernote.
    please fix this! it is such a basic function and not that hard to implement!

  16. 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!

  17. S-Pen button

    The S pen (EJ-PT820BSEGWW) already have support in Onenote, but i would love if it was possible to also use the button on it for erasing.

    I am able to do that on both my Surface Pro and Surface Book 2 with their original pens and a Wacom stylus and would love to have this function added for the S-Pen aswell since i use the Tab S3 at university for notes.

  20. Have the Android app open for OneNote when a OneNote link is used from another app.

    When I was using Evernote, I was able to copy the link to any note and past it in an event in Google Calendar. When I saw the event on my phone, I was able to click the link in the notes area and the mobile app for Evernote would open. The Notion app does this too. It's only OneNote that doesn't. Why?! Whenever I click OneNote's note links, it opens a web page in my browser where I have to log in. Please - have OneNote for Android open on mobile when links to notes in OneNote are used…
