  1. ink to text conversion on ipad

    Add ink to text conversion. It appears that some platforms support ink to text conversion, it is a must-have for iPad, too. It appears it was commented on in the digital ink/handwriting idea.

  4. Being able to convert handwritten text on iPad OneNote to text

    Being able to convert handwritten text on iPad OneNote to text. It seems to be available on PC tablet/hybrid version, why not iPad? Would be even better now with apple pencil of course!

  5. Mind map functionality in OneNote

    Mind maps are great for note taking and structuring ideas. Having this ability in OneNote would make OneNote THE place to take notes be that in text paragraphs, picture, annotations or mind maps!

  9. Bring ink math assistant to iPad

    Please bring the Ink Math Assistant from the windows store edition to iPad. There are no real good math inking apps on iPad yet. Being able to graph handwritten functions or converting them to text would be super useful!

  10. iOS: Make tags searchable

    Please make tags searchable on the ipad as they are on windows. If I can't search for them, then they are pretty much useless.

  11. STRAIGHT LINE FEATURE

    Please would you allow us to draw straight lines - just as you would in notability (your competitor) - DRAWING STRAIGHT LINES IS ESSENTIAL AND IS SUCH A SIMPLE FEATURE TO IMPLEMENT INTO THE SOFTWARE OF THIS APP - THIS FEATURE IS SEVERELY LACKING ON THE IPAD

  12. iPad: Add support for a Bluetooth active stylus for inking

    Thank you for adding handwriting support to the iPad app (19 Feb 2015). Now could you please support one or more of the bluetooth-based active stylus's available for iPad (e.g. Adonit Jot Script, Wacom Bamboo Stylus Fineline)? This would improve precision.

  13. iPhone: Draw or write with a stylus (digital ink or handwriting input)

    Please allow us to draw! Also, I would love a few additional formatting options.

    I currently use other apps to annotate and sketch. Onenote would be greatly improved with these features.

    I realize the phone version should be simplified, as a result of the smaller screen; however, I think there is room to add some features. Notability does a fantastic job of keeping it simple, while allowing the ability to draw and make additional text adjustments (ex. font size, color & heading).

  14. On screen ruler

    I would love to have an on screen ruler to draw straight lines (other mathematical tools are also welcome!). That way: taking notes with the iPad Pro and Apple Pencil will be even more enjoyable using OneNote!

  16. Sweet baby Jesus, PLEASE give us iOS functionality to draw straight lines that snap to the grid.

  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. Automatically recognize Apple Pencil and switch to "draw" or "pen" mode.

    OneNote's default method for entry is the keyboard. However, when using the Apple Pencil, OneNote treats it like a touch input. It's not until you click on the "Draw" menu and select a tool/pen/maker that it will start to ink.

    It would be great to be able to just start writing when OneNote detects the Pencil and not have to manually switch over to the to pen tool. Microsoft has already implemented this in their PowerPoint app.

    Let's see it for OneNote.

  20. iOS: searchable and custom tags PLEASE.

    Ability to create custom tags and make tags searchable. This is a basic function of a usable notebook, more important than embedding features recently added.
