How can we improve OneNote for iPad & iPhone?

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

        The drawing an arrow head on a jagged line sucks. Please implement a real line and shape tool.

        As a workaround, use a drawing package (I used picPick as it's really easy to use) then create a line (or whatever shape you want) in the package (rotating if necessary) then copy and paste this into its own object/text box in OneNote, which you can then move around and place wherever you want. Not perfect I know but it's better than nothing!!!

        If you draw an arrow it converts it to a line (if it recognises it [rare]).
        This is not ideal for percise lines (or easy to use).
        Things I'd like to see:

        - snapping to grid / hoizontal/verical lines / other drawn lines (?) / text (?)
        - being able to easiely disable snapping (with an emphasis on easily)
        - adjustable start / stop points after drawing (same with moving the enire thing at once)
        - different line styles

        Biggest post about this (that I know of):

        I would like to see such a feature. It would allow me to draw diagrams and hand written tables and charts.

        It is an essential feature which unfortunately doesn't exist in Onenote, IOS Version- Please find a way to make it possible

      • Lukas Hauser commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Yes please!!! Give us that Feature. I miss it so much. For example when I want to draw a coordinate diagram on the iPad.

        The feature to draw straight line is already there...enable shape recognition, draw a line, immediately make a small arrow at the end of the line and it will convert into a straight line

        I agree but the underlying issue is that Onenote for ipad is seriously lacking on features that already exist in the desktop apps.

      • Mat Smith commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Lol, if you want to switch to another app on the basis of this one, then OneNote probably isn’t for you! I agree it would be an excellent addition. But to throw your hands up in despair... get over it!

        if possible, flesh this out a bit with some arrowheads, shapes, etc that are found under the insert tab in powerpoint (or the OSX version of OneNote).
