  1. Turn off dark mode in just the app

    I should have the ability to run OneNote in light mode without having to switch the entire iPad out of dark mode. The individual apps themselves should have a toggle for light and dark mode independent of the rest of the OS. I don’t like writing on negative space, and switching the whole iPad to light mode to accommodate for this one app is hindering my overall experience

    Thank you everyone for the feedback so far, we really do appreciate it. We wanted to understand this a little better.

    Could we please share some additional comments of things we were trying that it would have helped to have such a setting or toggle?

    Additionally, we did want to share that on iPad if you go to “View” > “Switch Background”, you will be able to make the canvas/page be in light mode. On iPhone, if you’re on a page at the top right, tap on the “…” menu > “Switch Background”.

    Looking forward to hearing back, thank you!
