  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.

        • 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!

            • iOS 11 Full Drag and Drop Compatibility

              Gives OneNote (and hopefully any other Office365 applications) the ability to drag and drop files, images, and text from other apps on iOS 11 for the iPad.

                • 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.

                  • 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.

                    • 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!

                      • 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).

                          • 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!

                              • 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.

                                    • 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.

                                      • 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.

                                          Much like the desktop version the iPad should be able to record audio while doing other tasks, this way you can record your lectures and take notes, on top of this it would be nice to be able to play back the lecture by selecting parts of your notes. Why is the iPad version so behind the desktop version.
