  1. Easier way to draw straight lines.

    There should be an easier way to draw straight lines without the Shapes option, maybe you could draw a line, hold, and the line would straighten. Drawing and arrow doesn't seem to work for me, and it takes too much time to use the Shapes option.

  2. 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,…

  4. Please Prevent Copied Ink from Pasting as Picture instead of Ink on iPad iOS 13

    Please Prevent Copied Ink from Pasting as Picture instead of Ink on iPad iOS 13.

    Copying and pasting ink worked fine before iOS 13. Unclear why this capability got dropped.

  5. Solve handwritten Mathequations as i can do on the Web Version of OneNote

    In the web Version of OneNote is this „math“ Feature were you can circle/mark handwritten math-equations and they are solved directly in OneNote.

    I would like to be able to do that on my iPad. It is such a convenient feature for quick or even langer calculations.

  7. Improved handwriting

    The writing/annotating feature in OneNote for iPad is not nearly as good as it is in Notability. If Microsoft wants to capture more of the note-taking market, they should improve OneNote's annotating feature. Particularly how smooth it is, what it looks like and how quickly it syncs with other versions of the application.

  8. How about a page size option.

    How about a page size option. It’s crazy trying to print out hand written notes. At least allow for an a4 guide so we can keep our notes to a page size .

  9. Allow better PDF annotation/navigation

    Allow for easier scrolling through and navigation of PDFs by allowing us to enter page numbers and scroll to that page of the pdf. Goodnotes has a feature that outlines the pdf so you can easily go to the section of the pdf that you want to. Would be really useful for large PDFs of textbooks.

  10. Print an entire Norebook.

    I’d like to be able to archive my entire Notebook when I’m done with it either by printing it or saving it locally on my computer. I don’t want to rely on MS to store my work!

  11. Bring back « E-mail Page »

    Bring back the "e-mail page" feature as it was in previous versions of o note. It was much more convenient and easy to use.

  12. Please support pressure sensitivity and "Pencil" for Apple Pencil

    It's obvious that Apple Pencil is pressure sensitive. When I'm writing with Surface Pen, the things written look natural, but on iPad, it doesn't. This makes me want to give up using OneNote cause the inequality of the experience across the platforms.

    Also, there are only pen and highlighter in the iOS version, but the Windows version has an additional pencil option. Things written in pencil are displayed as pen on iOS.

  13. The iPad and PC onenote options are not the same on the iPhone onenote app.

    I want more options available on the iPhone such as bullets in lieu of only check-boxes. More options needed for the iPhone app!

  14. Consistency across devices

    In many educational settings students have a range of different devices.

    Microsoft's failure to implement the same functionality across different devices is a major impediment in education.

  16. Allow "." (dot/point) in notebook names like "1.1 page", "1.3 page"

    In iOS OneNote Apps it is not possible to use correctly "." (dot/point) in notebook names like
    "1.1 page"
    "1.3 page"

    You can create such a notebook name, but it is displayes as "1"
    (= everythink after the first dot is cutted)

    Seems to be a bug since such notebook names are allowed and correclty displayed in
    1) Win10: OneNote 2016: yes
    2) Win10: App.OneNote: yes
    3) Win10: OneDrive in WindowsExplorer: yes
    4) Office 365 (Online) Sharepoint (Teamwebsite): yes
    5) iOS Apps OneNote: NO

    Can you please allow "." (dot/point) "." in notebook names everywhere in every OneNote app/Website/Desktop app?

  17. Add the option for INTERNAL LINKS (texts from one page to another page, or from one section to another)

    It would be very useful if we can have the option of using internal links to connect one section (or page) to another section (or page), through texts or paragraphs. Thank you!
