  1. Just make office apps the same as the Windows version!!!!

    Why are the iPad apps so neutered. Just make them the same as the Windows versions. If my 15 year old ThinkPad can run Office apps perfectly on Windows 10, then so should my iPad Pro.

  2. Please allow OneNote app on iPad Pro to allow audio recording while writing/typing!

    OneNote users have asked for this feature many times in many different ways. We know it's available on the desktop platform. We want it on the iOS platform too.

    Basically its the ability to simultaneously audio record AND write/type on the OneNote app.

  3. Have typed text sit on the lines

    I love using the Apple Pencil to hand write my notes on the lined pages and I've found what works best for me, but if I decide to type, the text never lines up with the lines and it looks scruffy. If you can get the text to recognise the position of the lines on the page and sit on them, that would be perfect!

  4. Sync hand writing notes with audio recording on iPad

    I have used Onenote on the surface pro 4 and loved it. But the experience on the Ipad Pro is lacking a major feature: audio recording while taking notes + sync playback with the note taking. When you start the audio record in Onenote on the Ipad you can’t do anything else... Is there something I’m missing? If not, Microsoft please address this! Otherwise this is a great app and I love being able to move from the Ipad to my Pc and find all of my notes.

  5. Use Onenote-cmd:// instead of onenote: protocol for "copy link to" and "create Outlook Task"

    When you right click "copy link to" in onenote, it creates two links - one is a weblink, so will work on any client, the other is a onenote protocol link.

    Because it creates a link with the onenote: protocol, this means it's not cross compatible with other devices like iphone, which can only open using the onenote-cmd:// protocol which also works on windows!
    The same thing happens when you create an Outlook task in OneNote Desktop, but this doesn't even give the weblink.

    Please change to the protocol that works for more devices, I have to manually correct the…

  6. PLEASE add the Ink to Text for iPad Pro 2018 version.

    Miss having this option. Not having this option makes oneNote useless for my needs.

  14. Fix ink color change with lasso select

    Lasso selecting something drawn with Apple Pencil and tapping a different pen to change color is nice but it doesn’t work intuitively. I should be able to select something, tap a pen to change its color, tap somewhere else to remove the selection box, select a different pen, and continue writing in that third color. What happens instead is that the lines I just changed to color 2 are changed again to color 3, even though there is not a box showing that they are selected.

  16. Be able to insert videos on OneNote iOS. I can only do it via my laptop.

    I am unable to insert videos on my phone and iPad. This is probably the same with android apps. This is a major problem for our school and it would be very helpful if you could add this feature as not everyone owns or is able to use a laptop at home.
    Thank you!

  18. Please add “read only mode”

    It’s inconvenient that the OneNote is always under “edit mode” when I just want to glance or read my notes.

  19. Please enable to setup default paper

    Hi I am a new user of OneNote since I got my iPad 2 weeks ago. I love the app so far for note taking. However, I wish I can set default paper style (line, colour, etc.) so I don’t have to do it every time when I create a new page. That would save some hassle. Thank you so much!

  20. Please let me record lectures while taking notes on iPad Pro

    Please let me record lectures while taking notes on my iPad Pro. I would rather use oneNote than notability but notability lets me record lectures while taking notes so I have to use that app.
