  1. PLEASE ALLOW US TO 1. HAVE PALM REJECTION AND 2. THE RULER OPTION - making and expanding a table without having to switch to 'Text/Keyboard'

    Using and expanding a table is already hard enough that you have to switch from handwriting to 'text/keyboard'

    Also. This is concerning the iPad6th gen 2018

      • Apple Watch app should capture audio and link to note

        When dictating a note via the Apple Watch app, it should capture the audio and link it to the note (like the old Windows Phone 8 app used to)! This will help to alleviate issues when speech-to-text is unreliable.

          • Fix cursor jumping on iPhone

            I'm getting strange cursor behavior for the last few months (perhaps since the last major iOS update).

            The cursor jumps to top of page when I:

            1. Backspace (delete text) after about 20 characters.

            2. Almost every time I enter a new line.

            These behaviors happen consistently, and I can demonstrate them any time. It makes the app nearly unusable, and extremely frustrating.

            • Adding comments

              Sync between audio and handwrite text.
              Adding comments like i can do in Microsoft Word in desktop version, or even a subpage option that could be collapsed.Also copy link to paragraph would be really really useful. Adding a Navigation pannel for Headings - this thing doesen't exist even in desktop mode .

              More colors for highlighting text because there are only for handwrite text.

                • Universal Clipboard compatibility with MacOS Mojave

                  I use my Mac to screenshot lecture recordings and paste them into my OneNote. I then use the iPad to make hand written notes on them (similar to just uploading a PowerPoint, but the teacher doesn't upload them).
                  On MacOS Mojave there is a feature that the clipboard on the Mac is available on other devices. I'd like to see this feature become compatible with OneNote.

                    I don’t use sticky notes. I’d like to disable it and save space at the bottom of the iPhone screen.

                        • Make it functional ! ! ! !

                          I am EXTREMELY disappointed that after researching how this works and how great it could be for my purposes, that it will not play well with my iPad. I have an older but VERY functional iPad however because the One Note is set to work only with one iOS version, I cannot use it fully. BUMMER!! ! ! !

                          • Modern ink for text

                            I enjoy writing with modern ink (rainbow, galaxy…). But afterwards I like to convert my quick and dirty handwritten notes into beautiful clean text. But by doing so I lose modern ink which is sometimes a problem when I colored different parts of my text.

                              Please create an option to copy or dipuplicate notebooks on the iPad. I would like to be able to create a notebooks with a set of tabs and copy or duplicate it for different cases or subjects. That would be so awesome.

                                I work in IT, it would be really cool to have a sticker set of common network shapes (router, switch, firewall, etc) that I could create flowcharts with. This would be easier than having to draw them. Maybe it's possible to do this now?

                                  I think it´d be a great feature to be able to draw in the iPhone version of the app just like the one for iPad. Also you should add the ruler tool.

                                      • Apple Pencil Improvements

                                        There should be a virtual ruler, like there is one in the native Notes App for a better use of the Apple Pencil. Also straighten lines automatically like underline for a word.
