  2. Content Collapsing in OneNote for iPad

    In Onenote, the key missing feature on the iPad is the inability to collapse/expand content sections within my outlines. At my desk I can quickly focus right in on the section I need, and/or show/hide content I may not want others to see, with the simple double click of the mouse but when I'm on my iPad I lose this fantastic functionality.

    PLEASE update the app to enable the collapse/expand functionality

  3. Allow for paged writing as an option in OneNote instead of infinite canvas. It is very hard to scale. GoodNotes and Notability does this!!!

    Allow for paged writing as an option in OneNote instead of infinite canvas. GoodNotes and Notability does this!!!
    Can't scale writing if infinite canvas. Always results in some words being large and some being small and extending out of the border

  4. Enable Scribble for iPadOS 14

    Scribble is now native to the OS.

    Now that with iOS 14 we can place widgets on home screen, it would be super handy to have Sticky Notes widget on our home screen. Kindly add this feature.

  6. dictation

    Speech to text dictation in OneNote app on iPhone. At the moment when dictating in OneNote on the iPhone it creates an audio file, yet on the PC it translates speech into text. This would be a much appreciated feature.

  7. Precise stroke eraser

    Current OneNote stroke erase is a large dot with latency, i.e. it will show the eraser dot when the pencil is on for seconds although it erase immediately after choosing eraser. So this is not good for erasing something delicate. Is it possible to have a stroke eraser as fine as the pencil tip? So it is just to make the eraser dot smaller like the Apple Pencil tip. In this way, one can delete one stroke among others precisely. If this is done, there is no need to show eraser dot any more. Thanks!

  9. Grid lines or ruled lines need to be saved when saving it as PDF. Notability and Goodnotes are better

    grid lines or ruled lines will not be saved when saving it as PDF. We've also tried to print the test note as PDF, however, the grid line still won't be saved. However, this could also be an excellent idea of innovation that our developers and engineers may consider to be included in our future updates.

  13. Text selection with Mouse / Trackpad on iPad

    Try using the iPad Pro 2019/2020 with a mouse or with the magic keyboard and OneNote. OneNote isn't yet optimized for the new padOS accessibility features. In general, I want to use OneNote with a keyboard and mouse and have it behave like in Windows, when working with text.

    Some examples:
    * In text mode, clicking on typed text with the trackpad/mouse, the cursor is not placed at the exact location clicked. It is rather placed before the word or at the end of the word that was clicked.
    * Try to select a passage of text in text mode,…

  14. Fix pen thickness bug

    Hello, I have a problem whereas when I go between different pens the thickness changes, it becomes really bold and I have to keep writing and then erasing for it to go back to normal.... Really is making me loose a lot of time.

    Thanks in advance.

  15. Write and add text without having to hit the toggle switch

    I take notes with onenote. It’d be more fluid as a student if I didn’t have to keep toggling text mode or pencil mode. It’d be quicker for me to be able to just select a placement on the screen with my trackpad and add text, then when I need to draw or write something with the pencil just to be able to do that as needed, rather than toggle between the two switches. Thanks.

  16. Font color stays the same

    When I create a new textbox while taking notes in class the new text box’s ink changes back to black. It’d be nice if it stayed the same because sometimes I have a black background for 200 slides and I have to keep changing the ink back to red/green, or a color that is easily seen on a black background. Thanks.

  18. Creating and Synching Tags between OneNote on Laptop and iPad/iPhone

    I have Office*365, both for corporate and for family use, and my iPad is my exclusive note taking device for both. I wanted to shift to OneNote for iPad to take notes instead of Apple Notes app, because of its effective way of organizing and finding content. I was particularly excited about creating custom tags to help me rapidly organize and find information as soon as needed.

    However the ability to create custom tags isn't enabled in OneNote for iPad, but is on my corporate or personal laptop. If I create custom tags on my laptop and use them in…

  19. please add OneNote widget for iOS 14

    with the new iOS that allows home screen widgets it would be great to have 3 sizes of widgets for OneNote. One example I could see if seeing a TODO list in a widget.
