  1. Pressure/Force touch using Pencil to quickly swap to highlighters, pens etc.

    Force/pressure tap using Pencil 1, then like a function bar like a circle pop up to swap to other equipment. So can do this anywhere without the need of tapping on top bar. What you think?

    • Apple TV App

      I think it would be great to have an app on the Apple TV platform specifically. Utilizing the Apple TV as an additional screen/platform would be amazing! I know this is not necessarily the platform for this specifically, but tvOS is similar in lots of ways to iOS (more so than macOS) so I thought it’d be a great idea!!

          • Highlighter option

            Love the app so far. However, I would like to suggest an option to add highlight colors to highlight key words or sentences that are important in notes.

            • Handwriting recognition and OCR

              Can you confirm that Onenote is capable or scanning handwritten notes and converting them to searchable text? If so, how do I access this?

              Also can it scan pdf images for text and OCR what it finds? If so, can I control that or does it happen in the background?

              • New option for SECTION settings

                Develop a new option for SECTIONS settings. Allow grateful users to set a default page title naming convention. For example:

                • DIARY MODE: New Page titles based on date
                • NUMBER MODE: New Page titles are incremental
                • DEFAULT: New Page titles based on first line of page text.

                  Make the renaming and delete functions much more obvious and intuitive. Upon opening a new notebook, it is not easy to rename notebook 1 into something meaningful or better...delete comments t.

                  • Better resolution of imported PDFs using iOS or macOS onenote

                    As of 12/8/2018, it is still impossible to import a pdf with good resolution when using either the iOS or macOS version of onenote. The resolution is significantly worse when imported using these platforms versus when imported from a windows computer. I hope this issue will be addressed — it has been several years, but still without a fix!

                        • PLEASE ALLOW US TO 1. HAVE PALM REJECTION AND 2. THE RULER OPTION - making and expanding a table without having to switch to 'Text/Keyboard'

                          Using and expanding a table is already hard enough that you have to switch from handwriting to 'text/keyboard'

                          Also. This is concerning the iPad6th gen 2018

                          • Say what iOS promised over 4 years ago, make note taking on OneNote for iOS able to convert writing to text.

                            It would be great to use the full functionality of Microsoft OneNote on an iOS device. (like handwriting conversion to text). This is an old subject that keeps on coming back.

                              Have a view only option, so that when reading from ipad, you won't accidently touch the screen and the textbox pops up.

                                OneNote on the iPad Pro has intermittent syncing issue. Constantly asking me to sign in. Very frustrating. This is a relatively new problem.

                                    • Apple Watch app should capture audio and link to note

                                      When dictating a note via the Apple Watch app, it should capture the audio and link it to the note (like the old Windows Phone 8 app used to)! This will help to alleviate issues when speech-to-text is unreliable.

                                        • Fix cursor jumping on iPhone

                                          I'm getting strange cursor behavior for the last few months (perhaps since the last major iOS update).

                                          The cursor jumps to top of page when I:

                                          1. Backspace (delete text) after about 20 characters.

                                          2. Almost every time I enter a new line.

                                          These behaviors happen consistently, and I can demonstrate them any time. It makes the app nearly unusable, and extremely frustrating.
