Upgrade the apple pencil experience.
I love everything about OneNote for iPad except for the main thing that I use it for, which is the apple pencil. PLEASE look at apps like Notability and recognize that the handwriting/drawing experience is so much more enjoyable/precise/better looking than OneNote. The OneNote handwriting is so clunky and handwriting looks so sloppy with the current pencil options.This should be such an easy thing to fix, please for everyone, do it!!!

Agree with every word
Completely agree with this. I have been considering a switch to Notability given how much better the Apple Pencil support on it is.

The main annoying thing for me is that the app often detects my pen as being slanted, or too much pressure, so the line is too thick to write nicely and I have to do a little squiggle on the side to get it thin again.
This is definitely a OneNote problem as this does not happen in other note taking apps
You could fix this by just having an option disabling pressure sensitivity
Sometimes my ink color will change when I tap from ink to eraser, then back to ink. Annoying glitch!

I have Goodnote because it is good to see my writing because of 3 pens and apple pen support then I print as pdf going to OneNote. please update and include straight and rounded highlight, please.

Also, please add more pencil options, especially as they are available for other platforms. OneNote is awesome but I have to draw some things there and with the standard pencil options... well I draw in "Notes" and make a screenshot which I then paste into OneNote currently...
Please Please do it, I may switch to Notability after a while
I've actually found the latest OneNote app pretty reliable for taking handwritten notes. I a pencil 1st gen on an iPad 7th gen and its really smooth writing for me.
I think little tweaks like recognizing you're in "draw" mode immediately after you put the pencil to the screen would be great.
as well as adding an easier way to switch to the eraser. I like the suggestion of a scratch-out. very intuitive like when you're using a paper notebook. (since the Apple pencils dont have an 'eraser' end)
I totally agree. Writing with Apple Pencil in OneNote for iPad is so bad, compared to other apps. Even compared to native « Notes » app.
I plan to switch to Notability because for this.
