  3. Let's create a "Reading&Study mode"

    It will be very useful for student to have a "Reading&Study mode" on the app. This new feature isn't yet implemented (you have to scroll, to zoom, ecc). My ideas is to have a standard view that allow to read notes, like an ebook. This feature is already implemented on MS Word 2013, but not in OneNote.

  4. One more request for Diary/Journaling features

    With a great way to share directly to OneNote in iOS8 (not so great with Android) there is a potential for OneNote to be used in everyday life as a journal app (I have app "Day One" in mind).

    Why?

    We snap the pictures on smartphones like crazy, and feel very safe when they're backed up in OneDrive. Of course we share them in social media/instant messaging app of choice.
    But that's it.

    Now, what if there was a fast and simple way to just drop favorite ones to OneNote from our smartphones just as I would post/IM them but…

  6. Post-it plus (new app from 3M) type technology

    There is a new app from 3M called post-it plus. It can easily discern individual stickies from a cluster. Having capability to import to a onenote notebook (Evernote has this) or having this capability in the app itself would be AWESOME and productive.

  7. Standalone OneNote Quick Notes

    Since OneNote takes a long time to boot creating a minimal Quick Notes app would make sense for people who are really in a hurry.

  8. AirPrint to OneNote

    Have the OneNote app show up as an AirPrinter. Print directly into the OneNote app on iOS.

  9. ability to set default page size in ios and android

    Currently we can only change the page size in the windows version. It would be useful to be able to do the same, and change the default, in ios and android. I need to set page size to US letter for some documents and cannot do it if I don't have access to my Surface Pro 3.

  10. Add new page at the top of the section

    When adding a new page inside a section, we should have the option to add in the top of bottom. Currently by default it adds in the bottom.

  11. Sort the pages by Alphabetical order or by date.

    With the new update, I able to move pages inside a Section, however it will be nice if we can sort the pages by Alphabetical order or by date. Please consider.

  12. Real-time Syncing and push-sync for iOS devices

    Follow the pattern of similar services like iCloud or Pocket, syncing changes to the server immediately and then pushing them to mobile devices. When I enter changes in the Windows or Mac app and then open OneNote on my mobile device, the changes sometimes take more than a minute to sync. Ideally, you would open the mobile app and the changes will have already been pushed to that device.

  13. Ability to change font colour and change text highlight colour

    Currently we have options to make text bold, underlined, italicised and indented, but essentially we still can't change the font colour or put background colour.

  14. Properly paginate PDF documents

    When I email a page as a PDF document, all pages are in ONE page of a PDF document. To print this, all of the text becomes small and unreadable with multiple page documents. The pages should be 8.5 x 11 (or any other size) when the document is converted to PDF. It should not have ALL pages of a multiple page notebook/section as ONE page when emailed/converted to PDF.

  15. Make PDF "Annotations" more than just putting text over an image

    Why can't I write on the PDF? All the annotation does it put a text box over an image of the PDF. If I move that text box I might forget what it was in reference to. Why can't I create a pointer to something in the document, much like what comments and review does in Word? That's what I think of when I think of annotating.

  16. iOS: Better app integration

    When in the likes of safari, when you've loaded a pdf and click 'Open In' you are given the option to open it in various apps, OneNote not being one of them. I'd like to be able to print PDFs (and other documents) to a page in OneNote. OneNote doesn't integrate with hardly any apps on iOS, and with the iOS 8 developer preview - which has new APIs allowing different apps to interact in more ways - available to developers, I'd like to have the ability to print to OneNote, send data to OneNote, etc. straight from my iPhone.

  17. iPhone: Ability to indent pages

    The ability to indent pages (like you can do on OneNote for Windows) by touching the page of interest and sliding left or right, or by tapping and holding then being given a menu with the options.

  18. Microsoft Mathematics capabilities to be built in (and equations displayed on iOS/Android apps)

    Microsoft Mathematics is fantastic. It should be built into all versions, including the iOS version (including ink equation entry). At the very least, it should display equations written in windows on these apps.

  19. Within at least mobile apps, ability to insert GPS/lat/long coordinates

    When taking notes, it would be great to be able to simply grab the phones positional data and plunk it right into a note or table

  20. Multi-shot camera instead of having to approve each photo individually.

    The worst thing about all cloud services and most apps is that you can only take one picture at a time with camera. Each photo requires your approval before it is saved.

    Add the ability to take multiple shots at one time. Evernote has this feature. I want to go exclusively with OneNote but it is still missing some key features that I need.
