  1. 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?

  4. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. Solve handwritten Mathequations as i can do on the Web Version of OneNote

    In the web Version of OneNote is this „math“ Feature were you can circle/mark handwritten math-equations and they are solved directly in OneNote.

    I would like to be able to do that on my iPad. It is such a convenient feature for quick or even langer calculations.

  8. Print an entire Norebook.

    I’d like to be able to archive my entire Notebook when I’m done with it either by printing it or saving it locally on my computer. I don’t want to rely on MS to store my work!

  10. Have typed text sit on the lines

    I love using the Apple Pencil to hand write my notes on the lined pages and I've found what works best for me, but if I decide to type, the text never lines up with the lines and it looks scruffy. If you can get the text to recognise the position of the lines on the page and sit on them, that would be perfect!

  11. Fix default colours in dark mode

    Since the dark mode was introduced, the standard font colors have had two different shades depending on the mode used.
    For example, by using a standard green text font in light mode and continuing the work in dark mode, the standard green of the new characters entered will be lighter so that the text will have characters with different shades of green!

  12. Two tap

    Undo with 2 Finger tap in pencil Mode. 3 Finger tap to redo.
    Also the Option to use the Lineal / ruler.
    Additionaly the very left Side of the „Paper“ is Not usable. Writing there leads to no text or spilt letters.

  14. 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.

  15. Create Sticky Note from the widget

    Now that Sticky Note is supported on iPad and iPhone, it should support creating new Sticky Note right from the iOS widget. Sticky Notes are for making quick notes — what better and faster way to do it than from the widget itself

  16. The iPad and PC onenote options are not the same on the iPhone onenote app.

    I want more options available on the iPhone such as bullets in lieu of only check-boxes. More options needed for the iPhone app!

  17. 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.

  18. Enable hand written sticky notes in OneNote and make these visible in the iPad new widget area

    The sticky notes in OneNote are a great idea, it would be great if they can be hand written instead of typed only.

    When a sticky note is created, it would be great if you see it all the time. With the new Widget bar on the iPad home screen this should be possible, keep marked/important sticky notes permanent visible there (just like a real sticky note on the side of your screen).

  20. allow for better zoom

    Increase maximum zoom. This will allow me to write better because sometime I need to zoom in more but the program does not allow me to so i have to pick a thicker pen.

    It should be simple to implement. Goodnotes lets me zoom more and it allows my handwriting to be extremely neat. But i like Onenote more so please implement it.
