      Being able to convert handwritten text on iPad OneNote to text. It seems to be available on PC tablet/hybrid version, why not iPad? Would be even better now with apple pencil of course!

      • How about a page size option.

        How about a page size option. It’s crazy trying to print out hand written notes. At least allow for an a4 guide so we can keep our notes to a page size .

        • paper size options

          I wish I could choose page sizes like A4. Infinite note is great but sometimes it’s confusing. I use onenote on a laptop, a smartphone and an ipad and 100% scale is different on each devises. when I edit something on the laptop it’s wide and on the smartphone it’s narrow with 100%. I need universal size.

            • Sync hand writing notes with audio recording on iPad

              I have used Onenote on the surface pro 4 and loved it. But the experience on the Ipad Pro is lacking a major feature: audio recording while taking notes + sync playback with the note taking. When you start the audio record in Onenote on the Ipad you can’t do anything else... Is there something I’m missing? If not, Microsoft please address this! Otherwise this is a great app and I love being able to move from the Ipad to my Pc and find all of my notes.

                • Please support pressure sensitivity and "Pencil" for Apple Pencil

                  It's obvious that Apple Pencil is pressure sensitive. When I'm writing with Surface Pen, the things written look natural, but on iPad, it doesn't. This makes me want to give up using OneNote cause the inequality of the experience across the platforms.

                  Also, there are only pen and highlighter in the iOS version, but the Windows version has an additional pencil option. Things written in pencil are displayed as pen on iOS.

                  • 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!

                    • It must be very useful if we can record voice while drawing or sketching in iPad. Would you mind develop this sector as well.

                            • Change color of handwritten notes without erasing and rewriting

                              It would be so helpful if there was a feature that allowed users to lasso select a portion of handwritten notes and change the ink color instead of having to erase and rewrite them in the desired color.

                                    • Enable option to treat iOS ink as either 'handwriting' or 'drawing'

                                      Prior to December of 2017 OneNote interpreted iOS pen inputs as 'handwriting' which enables server side indexing of handwritten notes.

                                      In December, during an update, this was changed to 'drawing' which means that all handwritten notes made on iOS must be manually converted using a win32 application.

                                      A support thread was started here:
                                      https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/forum/msoffice_onenote-mso_imobile-mso_o365b/handwriting-recognition-stopped-working-on-ipad/85269887-c426-4eb4-adf5-bc749aeae50e?messageId=d79d1886-b44b-459a-ba83-2e8edc01f267&rtAction=1526467916381

                                      Which was just recently closed as 'Design Behavior'. Instead of just going back to default all ink input as handwriting, it would be hugely beneficial to be able to toggle the default input in the settings menu.

                                      • Siri Shortcuts in iOS 12

                                        Please support the new Siri Shortcuts that released September 2018. When I have an important idea or thought that I want to get out of my head and recorded asap, it would be nice to invoke Siri, and say "New OneNote" and OneNote opens at a new note ready for me to start typing or dictating. Putting this support in OneNote would allow for a bunch more automation that would really show the power of OneNote as a platform.

                                        • Sync hand writing notes with audio recording.

                                          I have used Onenote on the surface pro 4 and loved it. But the experience on the Ipad Pro is lacking a major feature: audio recording while taking notes + sync playback with the note taking. When you start the audio record in Onenote on the Ipad you can’t do anything else... Is there something I’m missing? If not, Microsoft please address this! Otherwise this is a great app and I love being able to move from the Ipad to my Pc and find all of my notes.
