  3. Same issue as everyone else. Can you please check the thread below and rectify the issue? double click on ipencil functionality stopped work

    Same issue as everyone else. Can you please check the thread below and rectify the issue? double click on ipencil functionality stopped working on OneNote - goes from pen to rubber but not rubber back to pen.

    Also OneNote blinks/screen flashes randomly or particularly when zooming in.

    None of these issues happen with other apps

  6. Go over the notes

    As a note-taking software, I think it is necessary to consider the convenience of users during review.
    It is recommended to swipe left on the note reading interface to go directly to the next note, and swipe right to return to the list interface.

    Can you reply to me?

  8. 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…

  9. OneNote not working on latest version of iPad iOS

    I deleted and reinstalled OneNote from my iPad as I was experiencing issues with the Apple Pencil 2; blotchy writing. Since then, OneNote won't open. Error code: aea52c6a7708cc23805306368main_oom. iPad software 14.4.2; model number MY2H2B/A.

    MS Office support noted:

    "Actually, you are correct that a lot of people are having issues with iPad at the moment and that is because it is the latest os of ipad, we do not have a compatible one note for that os yet
    Our software engineers are aware of this and are working tirelessly to release a compatible one note application"

    "I will…

  12. Add more format tools

    Please let the notes be saved with grid or lined lines when converted into a PDF. Also, add the ruler on the app for iOS devices.

  14. Missing options for storing photos in notes to device

    I sometimes need to work with a photo in one of my notes such as forwarding it to someone by email. The current options only allow me to cut copy paste rotate the photo or save it as a background image. It would be very useful having the ability to save the photo to the local camera roll. From there I could easily import it to other applications. Copying and pasting often doesn't work properly with photos on the phone for example with Outlook or Apple's mail app. The photo never arrives at the recipient.

  15. thickness

    An option to turn off or on the pressure sensitivity when writing. I find that depending on how I hold the apple pencil and the pressure I exert on the ipad will change the thickness of the line. It makes writing in different thicknesses very annoying as the thickness varies. You get an inconsistent and unprofessional look unless you take extra time to write everything with the same pressure and angle.

  16. Please add tap with two fingers to undo last stroke.

    Let's say you write something with the pen and then you want to undo it. Then the user can tap with two fingers at once to undo last stroke.
    A similar concept is used in the Procreate iPad app.

  17. Be able to unselect with finger (When using with apple pencil)

    When using with apple pencil, it is very annoying to unselect something.

    Steps to reproduce :


    • draw something with pencil

    • select it with selectioin tool

    • change the color of your selection (red for example)

    • then try to start another drawing with another color without changing your previous selection.

    You will always change the color of your previous selection unintentionally. The workaround is to make a fake selection before starting to write in another color : very annoying.

    A signle touch with finger should unselect the previous selecction.

  20. Link documents with a gps position and present them on a gps map

    Evernote offers this via 'idea places'. If you have a list of e.g. restaurants, you can show a map, on which the restaurant are shown with the position on the map. So you could see which restaurant nearby of the own position. This must be available both on iOS and Android.
