  2. ios collapsible paragraphs

    Hey,
    can you please add collapsible paragraps to the iPhone version of oneNote. It is essential for working with notes. It exists on desktop and android versions, but not on iPhone.

  3. Lasso and change ink stroke and color

    It would be incredibly nice if I could lasso something that's already written and change the ink stroke or color. That would save me a TON of time when I realize that I want my ink in another color!

  4. Change color of handwritten notes without erasing and rewriting

    It would be so helpful if there was a feature that allowed users to lasso select a portion of handwritten notes and change the ink color instead of having to erase and rewrite them in the desired color.

  6. It must be very useful if we can record voice while drawing or sketching in iPad. Would you mind develop this sector as well.

  7. Issue with uploading PDF plans in One note on an iPad

    Since the beginning of September, when I upload PDF plans that are in landscape orientation (All Architectural plans are landscape) it uploads in Portrait orientation and chops off about 1/3 of the plan. This worked perfectly for the past 2-1/2 years, then a month ago stopped working properly.
    PLEASE fix this issue. I use One Note on my iPad every day of my life and this issue is really painful. I have been in touch with Prateek in support many times. Please email me for further explanation if needed.

  8. Check-Lists: Enable a mirroring function allowing a master check list on one page to reflect check lists from multiple pages.

    Provide option to check-off on master list on summary page or project owner's page, or option to check off on other pages that own sub-tasks or sub-categories, while keeping both sets of check-lists updated real-time.
    Consider check list can change color based on project 25%, 50%, 75% complete and/or closes its-self off when sub-category is complete, or link a status bar to check list to change color as an indicator.

  9. OneNote for iPad ink algorithms are not optimal. There is a visible lag during inking even on the Pro tablet. Need new engine.

    Comparing OneNote to other platform specific note taking apps one can see trailer away that inking feels very different in OneNote. Almost all other areas are superior in OneNote, but it feels laggy when inking making users look for alternatives. Please take a closer look at your inking engine on iPad.

  13. Link drawing to text

    I like to take my notes mostly as typed text because it looks cleaner, but occasionally I need to add hand-drawn figures. If I try to move the text, I also need to move the figure to match. It would be more convenient if I could link the image to the block of text so that when I move the text they move together.

  14. Support Three Finger "Undo" and "Redo"

    This works in some apps but leads to scrolling in OneNote

  15. Please let me record lectures while taking notes on iPad Pro

    Please let me record lectures while taking notes on my iPad Pro. I would rather use oneNote than notability but notability lets me record lectures while taking notes so I have to use that app.

  16. Enable hand written sticky notes in OneNote and make these visible in the iPad new widget area

    The sticky notes in OneNote are a great idea, it would be great if they can be hand written instead of typed only.

    When a sticky note is created, it would be great if you see it all the time. With the new Widget bar on the iPad home screen this should be possible, keep marked/important sticky notes permanent visible there (just like a real sticky note on the side of your screen).

  17. I'd like the custom tags from my desktop to sync to my iPad. Or at least be able to customize the tags in iPad to match my desktop.

  18. Treat PDFs as PDFs

    When selecting the printout option, pdfs are treated as background images. It would be great if I could annotate on them, instead of just writtng over an image

  19. highlight text mode with apple pencil

    It would be nice to have a mode where the Apple Pencil could easily highlight typed text. As of now, I have to long press with the Apple Pencil on text, choose "select" or "select all", drag the select handles to where I want, then tap the highlight option, then select the yellow color (or other color). Ideally I could activate highlight mode, then drag the pencil across any text and have it highlight in real time.

  20. Sync hand writing notes with audio recording.

    I have used Onenote on the surface pro 4 and loved it. But the experience on the Ipad Pro is lacking a major feature: audio recording while taking notes + sync playback with the note taking. When you start the audio record in Onenote on the Ipad you can’t do anything else... Is there something I’m missing? If not, Microsoft please address this! Otherwise this is a great app and I love being able to move from the Ipad to my Pc and find all of my notes.
