  2. Add ability to change grid and rule line color!

    The default blue grid and rule lines clash with most of the page colors- OneNote 2016 has the ability to change rule line color and it's a huge aesthetic boost. Please stop taking away features from programs that worked great!

  3. Split view two separate pages in app

    Able to refer to separate pages of notebook side by side while writing notes on a separate page. Maybe like drag a page to the side to enable split view in the app.

  4. Install version of OneNote that supports older version of iOS

  5. Apple pencil 2 with one note: pencil thickness varies while writing. Please fix this problem to have constant thickness and prettier writing

    Issue with ipad pro 12" and apple pencil 2. While writing the pen thickness changes.
    The objective should be to have a constant thickness which would make the handwriting prettier.
    I do not refer the the preset thicknesses (5 steps from thin to thick) but to changes within one of the thickness settings.

  6. Add multiple levels for pages

    There are sections and pages, but there should be additional levels available. Like adding a subset of pages to a page. That would be an easy fix and expand tha ability of OneNote. I believe that this is an option on the PC version, but it needs to be on the iPad and Android Tablets as well. Many users are not taking laptops into meetings and carrying them around the office or when traveling. Please update the mobile apps with the same functionality as the PC version.

  8. Tuneable pen thickness

    The default pen thicknesses were changed last year. Personally, I prefer the inking from the previous sizes. Why not make the slider allow the user to tune the pen thickness for each position to their own preference. Ideally, I’d like to apply changes to all pens for consistency.

    This and other ideas illustrated here...

  9. Stroke smoothing

    There’s a distinct wobble to strokes even if you try really hard to write/draw smoothly. Other apps are better at removing this. Ideally, OneNote will smooth out lines just enough to remove this wobble.

  11. Bring ink math assistant to iPad

    Please bring the Ink Math Assistant from the windows store edition to iPad. There are no real good math inking apps on iPad yet. Being able to graph handwritten functions or converting them to text would be super useful!

  12. Annote PDF

    It should be possible to make annotations in PDFs attached in OneNote as it is possible in OneDrive.

  14. Fullsize mode. To hide all the panels. Becouse working on widescreen gadgets

    Fullsize mode.
    To hide all the panels.
    Working in horizontal view on widescreen tablets or phones, onenote panels take a half of screen.

  16. Record audio and write at the same time.

    Much like the desktop version the iPad should be able to record audio while doing other tasks, this way you can record your lectures and take notes, on top of this it would be nice to be able to play back the lecture by selecting parts of your notes. Why is the iPad version so behind the desktop version.

  17. PDF size

    It would be great if OneNote would allow us to Save As a reduced file size PDF. Currently, even one page of handwritten text creates a massive file.

  18. Improve palm rejection

    Trying to write with Apple Pencil and OneNote activates other tools at the top of the screen because my palm touched them. When I’m trying to write that should not happen, it should reject palm input

  19. Setting page size to A4 pages

    Hi!

    I've been enjoying the OneNote app on my iPad so much. However, I am not able to use it to write my homework that I need to print out later, since the PDF shrinks all the contents into one page, which may make my writings unreadable. I wonder if you can add the option of setting page sizes, so that we can print the notes out when needed?

    Thanks!

  20. Moving a page from one section to another section puts the moved page at the top instead of bottom

    I am using OneNote as my organizing notebook for work. I have 9 different sections with 30-40 pages in each section. I move pages from one of the 9 sections to another section often. But when I move the page to another section, it goes to the bottom of that new section. I'd like it to be at the top so it's in order of newest at the top vs newest at bottom.
