  1. Support PageDown on Keyboard

    I love the way I can organize Guitar Scores on One Note. I have the Samsung Note Tab 10.1 and I can underline and take notes on the scores. But when I play, I can't scroll the page down. I bought an Airturn Bluetooth Pedal witch works as the PageDown and PageUp button on a Bluetooth Keyboard. On the computer, it works perfectly, I can scoll the scores while I play but on my Samsung, it doesn't work. Is it possible to support the PageDown Button on android devices? It would really help me to play music and store my…

    • No word prediction

      I use Google keyboard and there is no word prediction when I type. This really slows my typing speed and discourages me from using oneote app.

        This would be a very useful feature.

          • Bugreport: Onenote doesn't work with Android N Preview

            Not sure where else to put this but Onenote only displays the splash screen before closing on the Android N preview. This is on both a Pixel C and Nexus 6.

            • Move a page within a section

              Very happy the move-page-to-other-notebook feature was added. We still need the ability to move a page within a section/tab. Ideally, it would also allow sorting the pages since, in some cases, the pages are organized in a sequence.

              • Option to sort pages by title or reverse date order.

                I realize the app emulates a paper notebook where you add notes to blank pages at the end as you go, but this isn't a paper notebook, and should be more convenient than one. I often access my recent notes and don't like scrolling all the way to the bottom of the page list every time. There should be an easy. persistent sorting option - either by name or reverse creation date.

                • please add ability to add a timestamp in all mobile versions of onenote, such as the android and iOS verions.

                  i use onenote every day at work as an investigator, and i always need to document when i do things, talk to people, etc the moment it happens. this would be far simpler if there is a time stamp function in the android app. i am sure i am not the only one who would like this.

                  • Ability to have different page sizes on Android

                    When a page size is set on Windows. That doesn't replicate on the Android App. The app still shows the largest page size. Either provide different page sizes on the app or have a red line water mark indicating where the page size selected ends. The latter suggestion is good in that it allows the user to keep the writing within bounded areas for proper printing without having to go back onto the desktop and align things again.

                    • Open onenote books as a link in the application

                      If i share my onenote document as a link, it is now not possible to open that link in the application android onenote.

                      For example.
                      I create a onenote book.
                      I share this onenote book as a link in view only mode.
                      I then send this link to a large amount of readers/users.
                      They CAN open the link in onenote online in any browser and view the content of the document.
                      But they CAN NOT open the link in the android application.

                        There should be a way to move OneNote including data to SD card. This is an urgent matter because internal memory is limited!

                          • Offline notebooks

                            It would be really helpful if we could set a notebook or section to download all its content(including images and attached files) while over wifi, so when we need to refer to it on the go there is no waiting time or any mobile data charges.

                            • Android Widget that edits a specific preselkected page

                              pretty much this. i use onenote as a organizer, and would like an android widget that will at minimum display a preselected page. the widget should be at least a bit customizable to integrate aesthetically with a home page. at minimum, selection of background color and transparency, colors and font options for static text, and the ability to have a bare widget (without borders, or configurable borders). *the widget must be resizable*

                              bonus points for having a few modes: 1. view only, 2. allow checking of boxes and crossing out of items. 3. full editable.

                                • Copy and paste in plain text

                                  When I copy text/sentence from OneNote and I paste it into the SMS text box, when I send the SMS it is sent as a MMS, this means that the text pasted is not in plain text format. The text was copied with formatting and pasted with formatting.

                                  Suggestion: Please allow user to copy and paste text in plain text.

                                  For example, I have addresses and notes stored in OneNote, I frequently need to copy from OneNote and paste the notes into SMS and send it to my friends.

                                  Thank you.

                                  I am using Samsung Galaxy S4

                                        Thanks for the feedback. You can currently create sections and notes offline in OneNote for Windows, iOS, and Mac, but we are investigating what it would take to support this functionality on Android. We can’t promise anything yet, but we are definitely looking into it!

                                      • Enable "Link to SD Card" in Andoid App

                                        For serious use notebooks easily get rather big (exspecially with pictures), but a lot of phones have limited storage capacity. Please enable the option "link to sd card" in the android-> Apps-> onenote options
