  2. Please allow page separation when printing from OneNote app for iOS

    When printing a OneNote page (section or subsection), it currently reduces font size to microscopic to fit all content onto one page — need it to automatically split page into separate pages (like Word) for printing from an iOS device (iPhone / iPad)

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. OneNote only kept for less than 1 year

    if OneNote is only useful for notes meant to be kept for < 1 year, in which case I'll have to use a different app for notes that I keep and periodically update long term.

    Re-adding back notes older than 1 year every time is not feasible.

  9. Show recent changes by users of a shared notebook

    Show the changes just like in the windows version in bold and keep them bold until marked as read – that is essential if you are a teacher or work with a team.

  10. Linked references

    Allow bi-directional linking and linked references to help compete with Roam Research app / obsidian. I really want to keep all my notes in.

  11. 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!

  12. 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

  14. 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.

  17. Fix storage bug in version 16.42

    I have recently updated the OneNote app on my IPad to version 16.42 (20100803) and the app suddenly bloats my storage, by increasing in size (cache I suppose) from about 4gb to 15gb including data within minutes!!! The app starts freezing and my device tells me I am running out of space. This happens even for simple notes, no images. Closing notebooks temporarily restores the app to a decent size, but then soon thereafter it increases in size again. I believe there is some bug which keeps creating data in the background. Please update the app fixing this issue ASAP!!!…

  18. Use Pen As Pointer Feature

    Hello,

    I noticed that using the pen as a pointer is only a feature on the Windows 10 desktop version. Is this something that can come to iPad OS? I use my pen as a pointer on my windows machine and I wish it was on my tablet. Thanks.

  19. Do NOT close page when it is moved to other section.

    If you tap and hold page name in the section, editing mode is invoked and you can select page and move it to a different section.
    When it’s done, the page is closed and the next page in the source section is opened.
    If you want to move multiple pages from source section, it works fine.

    However if you want to move the page to correct section and edit it, the current behaviour is very inconvenient.

    Please add a question after the move “should the page be closed? Yes/No”.
    If you also will add an option to remember that answer…
