  1. Enable option to treat iOS ink as either 'handwriting' or 'drawing'

    Prior to December of 2017 OneNote interpreted iOS pen inputs as 'handwriting' which enables server side indexing of handwritten notes.

    In December, during an update, this was changed to 'drawing' which means that all handwritten notes made on iOS must be manually converted using a win32 application.

    A support thread was started here:
    https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/forum/msoffice_onenote-mso_imobile-mso_o365b/handwriting-recognition-stopped-working-on-ipad/85269887-c426-4eb4-adf5-bc749aeae50e?messageId=d79d1886-b44b-459a-ba83-2e8edc01f267&rtAction=1526467916381

    Which was just recently closed as 'Design Behavior'. Instead of just going back to default all ink input as handwriting, it would be hugely beneficial to be able to toggle the default input in the settings menu.

  2. Two tap

    Undo with 2 Finger tap in pencil Mode. 3 Finger tap to redo.
    Also the Option to use the Lineal / ruler.
    Additionaly the very left Side of the „Paper“ is Not usable. Writing there leads to no text or spilt letters.

  3. Siri Shortcuts in iOS 12

    Please support the new Siri Shortcuts that released September 2018. When I have an important idea or thought that I want to get out of my head and recorded asap, it would be nice to invoke Siri, and say "New OneNote" and OneNote opens at a new note ready for me to start typing or dictating. Putting this support in OneNote would allow for a bunch more automation that would really show the power of OneNote as a platform.

  4. Care for uservoices

    Start caring for the uservoices

    It is obvious the no one cares about what is written here. You should start doing that.

    There are old ideas already implemented. There are numerous duplicates. And the ones being implemented in the app are none of these.

    I start to feel that OneNote for iOS is abandonware

  6. Add a confirmation pop-up before the note gets deleted - important for schools

    I'm using iPads with Onenote in my language school. Kids are not always careful, and since it's extremely easy to delete a note in OneNote, they keep disappearing from the tablets to the pupil's discontent. It also is quite troublesome to recover them later.

    Adding a confirmation pop-up would ensure that the action of deleting the note was intentional. There could also be an option to toggle the gestures, so deleting the notes that easily would be impossible.

  7. hide side bar allowing to use the full screen for writing or drawing

    Please have this in next update as many user have seen requesting to hide the pages bar, so that we get full use of the screen to writing and drawing.

    The pages side bar is not always required while writing and drawing and hence when required we can access it when hidden.

  8. Selection copy and past of any content, not just written

    If you lasso, it only selects handwritten stuff, but what if there was a selection tool that selected content from the notebook, like even added images so you can take that and put it somewhere else with out having to screenshot it and all that

  9. we need code block formatting

    I'm a developer and I'm constantly finding snippets of code that would be useful in the future. I was wondering if there is an in-app formatting option for code-blocks like Evernote has? This is very annoying:

  10. Please add a way to select a pen color using hex color codes.

    For example #FF0000 as red - some people, including me, have their own favorite colors that are a bit more complicated.
    I just lost my color I picked from the palette and it wouldn't've happened if I could just note the hex code and enter it.

  16. Improve clipper. I cannot save an entire news article to OneNote on ios like I can on a computer. I get a screenshot at best or only the url

    Improve the clipper on ios. I cannot save an entire news article to OneNote on ios like I can on a computer. At best I get a screenshot and usually it is just the URL which is not helpful.

  17. Resizing the page size when importing a pdf

    What about an option where you could have the page size JUST as the pdf? Unlike now when you put a printout, it just gets pasted on. Have the size of the page be whatever the width of the pdf is and its length

  18. Left-handed user interface

    Whenever I lay my hand down when writing, u end up adding a new page.
    The interface is not left-handed friendly, and I believe these users deserve the same user experience.

  20. Paper style

    Dark grey ruled lines in paper style (or ability to choose colour of ruled lines). Apply to maths square grid lines or horizontal straight ruled lines.

    (On horizontal lined paper, leave the margin in its current colour or let the user choose)
