  1. Please add “Ink to Text” to OneNote for iPad!

    Please add “Ink to Text” to the mobile version of OneNote for iPad! As an Office 365 subscriber, that’s the one and only reason I would ever use this app. People take handwritten notes on Tablets – not on desktop computers. Having the option to convert handwriting to text only on your desktop version and not on the mobile version makes no sense.

  2. Add the lineal/ruler tool.

    I cannot use OneNote as a functioning tool for my classes as a maths teacher without the ruler tool.

    Please also add the "maths" functions from the desktop app to the iPad app.

  3. scribble and widget for ipad os 14

    Make a better widget than existing one. As new ipad os 14 comed with awasome widget support .. it's time for OneNote to make a widget and get most out of it.


    1. Allow directly take notes (handwritten/ type) in widget insted and of taking me to app and than start writing which is a lot time more time consuming process and it make existing widget use less.


    2. For hand writting give a space like a blank board in widget who can force/motivate us to write down on it like stick note or new note so we can just input data…

  5. HOW IS SETTING A PAPER SIZE FOR IPAD STILL NOT A THING.

    NEED TO CONTROL PAPER SIZE SO WHEN YOU PRINT ONE NOTE CONVERTED TO PDF THEY PRINT ON LETTER SIZE AND NOT SQUEEZE EVERYTHING DOWN TO ONE PAGE.

    RIDICULOUS

  7. Please allow OneNote app on iPad Pro to allow audio recording while writing/typing!

    OneNote users have asked for this feature many times in many different ways. We know it's available on the desktop platform. We want it on the iOS platform too.

    Basically its the ability to simultaneously audio record AND write/type on the OneNote app.

  11. Just make office apps the same as the Windows version!!!!

    Why are the iPad apps so neutered. Just make them the same as the Windows versions. If my 15 year old ThinkPad can run Office apps perfectly on Windows 10, then so should my iPad Pro.

  12. Please provide full Onenote features on ipad pro 2019 as per desktop version

    Why deprive premium device users the ability to use premium software features such as handwritten notes to text? This was one of the key reasons for this purchase and pen included. The ipad's portability and handwriting features allow users to take it on the field, instead of a laptop.

  13. Easier way to draw straight lines.

    There should be an easier way to draw straight lines without the Shapes option, maybe you could draw a line, hold, and the line would straighten. Drawing and arrow doesn't seem to work for me, and it takes too much time to use the Shapes option.

  14. Upgrade the apple pencil experience.

    I love everything about OneNote for iPad except for the main thing that I use it for, which is the apple pencil. PLEASE look at apps like Notability and recognize that the handwriting/drawing experience is so much more enjoyable/precise/better looking than OneNote. The OneNote handwriting is so clunky and handwriting looks so sloppy with the current pencil options.This should be such an easy thing to fix, please for everyone, do it!!!

  15. I need to be able to save OneNote notes as a pdf.

    I am unable to save a note as a pdf file. On an ipad, I can only send it to a printer. In a browser, the document is cut after the first page.

  16. Searchable Handwriting in OneNote

    Please add "treat ink as handwriting" for OneNote for iPad and Mac so handwriting can be searchable. OneNote is worthless without it!

  18. Save to PDF on iPad with gridlines

    Please add the ability to save a OneNote to PDF and keep the gridlines or ruled line background on iPad devices. Currently this is not possible and it really should be possible. Again, saving to PDF on iPad and keep the gridlines or ruled lines in the background.

  19. Multitasking Support for multiple OneNote or even Split Screen for multiple notebooks/pages

    We should be able to open multiple OneNote windows and have them run side by side using iOS multitasking. This would be a really nice feature since you can open multiple pages/notebooks/sections/etc at one time on any PC or Mac but not being able to do this really limits the functionality. Even being able to have a split screen option to have two separate pages open at one time would be immensely helpful.
