  1. Zoom out more

    It'd be very useful to me if we could zoom out more than we can now,so that you can see everything in your paper.

    It comes handy when you have to select a lot of things that are all over your paperat once, to move them or something else.

  3. Please add “read only mode”

    It’s inconvenient that the OneNote is always under “edit mode” when I just want to glance or read my notes.

  4. Rule

    Please, the incorporation of the ruler tool in the iPad app would be very helpful to make straight lines!

  5. There simply needs to be a posibility to change the size of the eraser in one note for ipad! This is a must

    Im trying to sketch out some ideas inside one note and the lack of eraser functionality feels stupid. Yes its good to be able to erase only parts of a line (thanks for adding that functionality!) but with an eraser head stuck in one size, it becomes a problem when drawing small stuff (which im currently doing).

  6. 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…

  9. Video Inserts Preview

    Include a preview screen shot for any inserted video attachments. Currently only an icon is shown.

    Most other applications use this instead of an icon. This helps to get an idea of the contents especially when multiple clips are within a note.

  10. 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.

  14. Make the "equation editor" actually useful

    You can insert an equation onto the canvas on iPad. But then you can't edit it. You just get the standard keyboard with none of the symbols. There needs to be a pop-up menu, at least, with the functionality of the regular equation editor.

  15. Consistency across devices

    In many educational settings students have a range of different devices.

    Microsoft's failure to implement the same functionality across different devices is a major impediment in education.

  16. Support embedded Microsoft Stream properly on the iPad

    It's currently possible to embed a Microsoft Stream video into OneNote. However, two videos on the same page doesn't work.

    Current evidence is that students need short bits of video interspersed with questions, not a single long video, so this needs urgent fixing.

  17. Use Onenote-cmd:// instead of onenote: protocol for "copy link to" and "create Outlook Task"

    When you right click "copy link to" in onenote, it creates two links - one is a weblink, so will work on any client, the other is a onenote protocol link.

    Because it creates a link with the onenote: protocol, this means it's not cross compatible with other devices like iphone, which can only open using the onenote-cmd:// protocol which also works on windows!
    The same thing happens when you create an Outlook task in OneNote Desktop, but this doesn't even give the weblink.

    Please change to the protocol that works for more devices, I have to manually correct the…

  19. PLEASE add the Ink to Text for iPad Pro 2018 version.

    Miss having this option. Not having this option makes oneNote useless for my needs.

  20. Add the option for INTERNAL LINKS (texts from one page to another page, or from one section to another)

    It would be very useful if we can have the option of using internal links to connect one section (or page) to another section (or page), through texts or paragraphs. Thank you!
