    • Unlimited audio recording length

      In Evernote, I can record lectures of any length from my phone and easily find them on any platform. OneNote for android is useless for this task. Recording should be built into the app.

        • Fix problem of cursor jumping to paragraph beginning

          Lately, beginning about 2018 Feb, OneNote has been very problematic to use. When I write about a screenful, cursor and the written text starts jumping to beginning of the paragraph (or maybe page). So it is quite hard to write longer, many pages in length, of notes. This happesn with older notes and with new created notes, and I don't like to make such many notes or write paragraphs in switched order because of this problem.

          • Pagination

            The option to set a page size that would be visible when making notes would be great in all versions of onenote. I take hand written notes for projects and meetings and when I print to pdf to share them, I usually have odd breaks that garble text at the page break. There isn't any easy way to correct this. I know the endless page is a great feature in onenote and I do like it, but being able to use the input in a variety of output forms would be a most welcome addition.

              • Allow more than one account in Android phones

                Currently, in Android phones, we are allowed to add only one Microsoft account for OneNote app. If the user has more than one account or their family account. It is really hard to sync. Please allow this functionality.

                • Section and section groups like windows

                  There is huge gap of functionality between windows app and android app. OneNote is cool. In android app there is no way to create a new section group. Also there is no way to fold section groups, as there is in windows app.
                  This unavailability of folding of section group makes app very time consuming and cumbersome when there are many section in each section group and you have to scroll through all of them to reach destination section at very last.

                  • Add, "Ink to Text," AKA Handwriting to Font support to OneNote for Android

                    This was posted a year ago, but didn't receive much traction. I just purchased a tablet with a stylus while under the impression that this feature was supported on Android given it has been on Windows for awhile.
                    Developing for Android and Windows are two different paradigms, I know, but I would think porting the feature wouldn't be too cost or time-intensive.
                    Thanks for your time.

                    • Linetools, lasso and page size!!

                      Hi! I would love to get the lasso tools as many others says.

                      i want linetools as well to make straight lines and circles.

                      Page size would be great, where we can choose between A4, A3 "papers"

                            • look at onenote for the ipad pro....copy and paste

                              Seriously, OneNote for android is barely usable. Unfortunately, my company won't support an ipad pro therefore I'm stuck with the Android tab S3. Even more unfortunate is that I'm likely going to have to abandon electronic notes as this app is not very good. I find the pen less accurate (which you can't do anything about) however being able to lasso select, change the color and thickness of your highlighter, and have the ability to open a section group created on a desktop would be a good start. Not sure why one note is especially horrible on Android.....Word seems to…

                                • More options to customize pens and more highlighters in draw mode + sync pens created between devices

                                  More colors of highlighters are required for my use.

                                  It would be nice to have a customization of the pens similar to that of the Windows 10 app and the synchronization with the pens already created

                                      • Turn off autoformatting/autocorrect

                                        I would like to be able to work in plain text without any autoformatting, autocorrecting, autocapitalizing etc.
                                        More broadly, I want to fully control the app - not the app fully controlling my notes.
