  2. Default Page Template

    Please bring back the feature of setting default page templates so that when you press "+ page" some level of settings you decide is already applied.

  3. Link drawing to text

    I like to take my notes mostly as typed text because it looks cleaner, but occasionally I need to add hand-drawn figures. If I try to move the text, I also need to move the figure to match. It would be more convenient if I could link the image to the block of text so that when I move the text they move together.

  8. highlight text mode with apple pencil

    It would be nice to have a mode where the Apple Pencil could easily highlight typed text. As of now, I have to long press with the Apple Pencil on text, choose "select" or "select all", drag the select handles to where I want, then tap the highlight option, then select the yellow color (or other color). Ideally I could activate highlight mode, then drag the pencil across any text and have it highlight in real time.

  9. Treat PDFs as PDFs

    When selecting the printout option, pdfs are treated as background images. It would be great if I could annotate on them, instead of just writtng over an image

  10. Search on page

    I see this search function has been requested for over 4 years. It’s about time to listen to the need for such a basic function. I really wonder about MS interest in listening to its Users!

  11. Sync hand writing notes with audio recording.

    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.

  13. 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/msofficeonenote-msoimobile-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.

  15. Horizontal writing

    I would like OneNote to be better suitable to write at full zoom and make me allowed to shift more to the right on the page without OneNote stopping me.

    Now this doesn't work as expected.

    Zoom to full, and write the whole page, move to the right and continue.
    Suddenly you will get to a point of where OneNote doesn't allow you to move further to the right. You will be able to write, but you cannot allocate a full "page" and start writing.

    Breaks the flow of writing if writing horizontal..
    Vertical works fine.

    While you are at…

  16. Offline Error Message shifts the whole page

    Please move the notification area or stop the notification area from moving the whole page when I receive "Offline Error message".

    This shifts the whole page when I'm writing and is super annoying.
    I'm moving a lot and hence this message shows up often and is of no importance to me since it syncs not at that moment, but later e.g (5 min later or when ever the network is ready).

    If i have a bad connection this happens too often and sucks.

  17. Add a Page Separation Feature for Printing and Exporting PDFs

    When exporting or printing, the program prints a single, very long, one-page PDF. Please add a feature that shows page lines when writing and then prints (or generates) the PDF in multiple pages. OneNote online on Office365 and the desktop app for OneNote 2016 has this feature. Please add this feature to the iOS version.

  18. Pdf background for all pages

    It would be great to be able to select all imported pdf printouts to be as background. For every lecture I have about 50 pages that needs manual "Set as background", it can take many precious minutes from a student.

  19. Drag and drop pages and sections in iOS app

    Instead of tapping on the Move option iPad users should be able to drag and drop a page to another section and a section into a different notebook.
