  1. why does Android OneNote have such limited functions compared to other OneNote platforms?

    Using a stylus on android OneNote is a terrible experience.
    Compare to OneNote on iPad.
    When is Microsoft going to fix all the gaps in the Android version??

  2. Capability to load notebook from another folder

    Currently OneNote for Android loads all notebooks from OneDrive Personal\Documents. With a workaround I know how to also load from other folders within OneDrive.

    Thats all good but I host my own cloud and the Android app is not able to load notebooks from locations other than OneDrive.

    Please add the capability to load a notebook from a local folder on the Android device.

  3. BUG: Handwriting and drawing, offsets to the left

    On a Samsung Tablet, Tab S4, running Android Pie, and latest version:
    Whenever I draw or write anything using the S-Pen, it always offsets what I've written, each letter at a time, 3-4 milimeters to the left, after I complete the shape by lifting the S-Pen.

    This is making it hard to do any precise writing or drawing, and you can't fully predict what you are going to draw.

  4. Password protected sections timeout issue

    Keeps relocking within minutes, sometimes seconds, of use. Then the cursor is off when unlocked. You then need to press the back button and reposition the cursor.

    Need to fix. Multiple feedbacks submitted for months now.

  5. 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.

  7. App is very slow to start up

    The Android app is very slow to start up. Often times you just need to check something and want to get to your notes quickly (or jot down an idea), but the app needs 3-5 seconds to startup even on a faster phone. That is very frustrating many times and counter-productive always.

  9. In-app "Send feedback" option should acknowledge feedback was sent

    I tried submitting an idea first using the "Send feedback" option in OneNote (in the "..." menu on the screen that lists notebooks) but after doing so nothing happened... no popup acknowledging that I'd sent feedback, no email saying you would look into what I suggested, nothing showing up on this UserVoice so that others could vote for it.

    From this I got the feeling that maybe the send feedback option is a black hole. Does it even work at all?

    So, I suggest you improve it so that it does acknowledge, somehow, that the feedback was received. Maybe it…

  10. OneNote support for current generation of amazon Fire Tablets

    I don’t understand why Microsoft won’t have OneNote on fire Hd tablets considering their popularity particularly in academia! Totally unacceptable!!

  11. Change size of the page

    It would be great if I you would add an option to toggle on and off infinite scrolling both diagonally and horizontally and if you could instead use the size of the page you want like A4 or A5. I just want to use one note like I would use normal notebook, (kinda like app bamboo paper).

  13. Hide badge overlay

    I like to hide the badge overlay which is distracting and just use the notification bar shortcut to add quick notes.
    (Just like Evernote's notification bar shortcut for simple notes)

  14. Better font formatting for Android phones

    Things like the ability to choose the type of font, and font size are crucial if you want to take notes properly. OneNote already has the ability to support these given that if I were to paste text from another source, OneNote is perfectly capable of showing the right font selection and font size so why can't the option to choose these myself also be added to the app? Even if you can't add the extensive customisation of Word, a simple option to choose between 3-4 different heading styles that many other apps already do with ease using markup would…

  15. Adding more custom pens

    I want to be able to add more pens! As of now, I can only have 4 personalized pens. On the Desktop version, I can add many many more (although overall still not as good as the 2016 version). This is a must-have feature for me on the Android version.

  17. 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.

  19. Create links from images and click them without Ctrl

    Right now creating links from images is only supported for Windows, would love to see this option for android as well, image links are ignored at the moment.

  20. Lasso and change ink stroke and color

    It would be incredibly nice if I could lasso something that's already written and change the ink stroke or color. That would save me a TON of time when I realize that I want my ink in another color!
