  2. 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!!!

  3. Implement PencilKit for Low Latency Hand Writing on iOS 13

    At WWDC, Apple stated that apps who implement handwriting using PencilKit (https://developer.apple.com/documentation/pencilkit) on iOS 13 will see substantial latency improvements.

  4. 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.

  5. Turn off dark mode in just the app

    I should have the ability to run OneNote in light mode without having to switch the entire iPad out of dark mode. The individual apps themselves should have a toggle for light and dark mode independent of the rest of the OS. I don’t like writing on negative space, and switching the whole iPad to light mode to accommodate for this one app is hindering my overall experience

    Thank you everyone for the feedback so far, we really do appreciate it. We wanted to understand this a little better.

    Could we please share some additional comments of things we were trying that it would have helped to have such a setting or toggle?

    Additionally, we did want to share that on iPad if you go to “View” > “Switch Background”, you will be able to make the canvas/page be in light mode. On iPhone, if you’re on a page at the top right, tap on the “…” menu > “Switch Background”.

    Looking forward to hearing back, thank you!

  7. 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 .

  8. Please Prevent Copied Ink from Pasting as Picture instead of Ink on iPad iOS 13

    Please Prevent Copied Ink from Pasting as Picture instead of Ink on iPad iOS 13.

    Copying and pasting ink worked fine before iOS 13. Unclear why this capability got dropped.

  9. 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.

  10. Allow "." (dot/point) in notebook names like "1.1 page", "1.3 page"

    In iOS OneNote Apps it is not possible to use correctly "." (dot/point) in notebook names like
    "1.1 page"
    "1.3 page"

    You can create such a notebook name, but it is displayes as "1"
    (= everythink after the first dot is cutted)

    Seems to be a bug since such notebook names are allowed and correclty displayed in
    1) Win10: OneNote 2016: yes
    2) Win10: App.OneNote: yes
    3) Win10: OneDrive in WindowsExplorer: yes
    4) Office 365 (Online) Sharepoint (Teamwebsite): yes
    5) iOS Apps OneNote: NO

    Can you please allow "." (dot/point) "." in notebook names everywhere in every OneNote app/Website/Desktop app?

  11. Prevent users from using the "Send to OneNote" add-in from copying data from a corporate account email account to a personal OneNote account

    The "Send to OneNote" add-in is enabled/disabled though the users' Exchange mailbox, users of Office 365 enterprise accounts can see their Exchange add-ins by going to https://outlook.office.com/owa/?path=/options/manageapps. When the OneNote add-in is added to a user's Exchange account the button shows up in Outlook on the desktop, Outlook mobile (Android & iOS), and Outlook on the web. Users' can access the "Send to OneNote" functionality on mobile by opening an email, clicking on the vertical ellipses on the e-mail, then clicking the "Send to OneNote" button. If the user has never logged into the OneNote add-in they will be…

  12. 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.

  13. Add the "Pencil" option in the add pen menu

    This feature is available in Word iOS but not in OneNote. Additionaly, It would also be great if you could achieve a similar look to Apple's Pencil option in their Note App.

    Thank you for considering our feature requests.

  14. 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.

  15. Support for iOS Shortcuts app

    Several journaling apps like Bear and Day One support note creation through the new iOS shortcuts app. Would love to see OneNote support this feature too, with actions like adding a new note, inserting content (text, pictures...) into an existing page, etc.

  16. Math with graphing functionality

    I am taking math courses and I would love to be able to work on graphing problems on my iPad Pro. This is a feature that would make life so much easier for students taking math courses. I hate having to use regular paper or search for another app that can do this one missing piece from OneNote. Please add this!
