  1. Allow rearranging multiple pages at once

    In OneNote 2016 (and presumably OneNote for Windows 10), I can hold select multiple pages at once (using the Ctrl or Shift keys) and move them up and down within the section (while maintaining the existing hierarchy of subpages). I’d love to have this function in OneNote on my iPhone as well!

  2. Create Sticky Note from the widget

    Now that Sticky Note is supported on iPad and iPhone, it should support creating new Sticky Note right from the iOS widget. Sticky Notes are for making quick notes — what better and faster way to do it than from the widget itself

  3. Add the "Pencil" option in the add pen menu

    This feature is available in Word iOS but not in OneNote. Additionaly, It would also be great if you could achieve a similar look to Apple's Pencil option in their Note App.

    Thank you for considering our feature requests.

  8. 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.

  9. 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!

  10. Make the "equation editor" actually useful

    You can insert an equation onto the canvas on iPad. But then you can't edit it. You just get the standard keyboard with none of the symbols. There needs to be a pop-up menu, at least, with the functionality of the regular equation editor.

  11. Support embedded Microsoft Stream properly on the iPad

    It's currently possible to embed a Microsoft Stream video into OneNote. However, two videos on the same page doesn't work.

    Current evidence is that students need short bits of video interspersed with questions, not a single long video, so this needs urgent fixing.

  12. Enable hand written sticky notes in OneNote and make these visible in the iPad new widget area

    The sticky notes in OneNote are a great idea, it would be great if they can be hand written instead of typed only.

    When a sticky note is created, it would be great if you see it all the time. With the new Widget bar on the iPad home screen this should be possible, keep marked/important sticky notes permanent visible there (just like a real sticky note on the side of your screen).

  14. Support for iOS Shortcuts app

    Several journaling apps like Bear and Day One support note creation through the new iOS shortcuts app. Would love to see OneNote support this feature too, with actions like adding a new note, inserting content (text, pictures...) into an existing page, etc.

  15. 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!

  16. Fix default colours in dark mode

    Since the dark mode was introduced, the standard font colors have had two different shades depending on the mode used.
    For example, by using a standard green text font in light mode and continuing the work in dark mode, the standard green of the new characters entered will be lighter so that the text will have characters with different shades of green!

  20. To do list

    The to do list needs basic improvements, once a task has been completed with a tick, please move it down to the bottom of the list. I am still able to view the completed tasks
