    Please can you mak a function that allows users to export notebooks to PDF using OneNote for iPad.
    Is there any existing workaround to export whole notebooks as a pdf from Notebook?

  2. Feature for a straight line and pencil

    These are already present on the PPT app. Please just port it into OneNote. Maybe even the protractor. Please! And also add pressure sensitivity to OneNote iOS!

    How in the world are these two basic features absent!?

  3. Text to ink feature

    While we wait for the ink to text feature how about iOS users get a text to ink feature?

    Just like how we can train a smart assistant to recognize our voice what if we can train OneNote to recognize our handwriting by writing out the alphabet? So when we select text we want to convert to ink OneNote would just take the letters we already wrote and attach them into the words.

  5. Password-protected section pages shown as “Untitled Page” intermittently

    This happens only to a password-protected section. I can view all the pages when I click on them, but the page titles on the tab turn into Untitled then back randomly.

  9. Improve loading speed on iOS

    OneNote iOS is great, but the time between tapping the icon and being ready to take a note is way too long. Apple's Notes app is the standard to beat here: it's nearly instantaneous. With OneNote, you're left waiting, waiting while it loads which discourages quick note taking.

  11. Integrate Outlook Task flags into OneNote iPad App

    I use OneNote for note taking with my iPad and Apple Pencil.
    In a meeting I would like to tag something I have written as a task that I can later view in Outlook. I can do this when I get back to my computer, but this is inefficient. My productivity would further boosted if I could simply tag the item on my iPad while I am taking notes.

    Please include this feature moving forward.

  13. Change markers opacity

    Currently, all highlighters and pens have the same opacity, which is quite hard. It would be nice to have the option to change it and make it softer (more translucent) so as to have softer highlighter and “pencil-like” highlighting.

  14. Keyboard Shortcuts to Flip Through Pages like on Windows CTRL-PageUp / PageDown

    CTRL-PageUp / CTRL-PageDown on Windows versions of OneNote are very useful to view the next/previous page in a section. But I can’t seem to find the same key combination in iOS version. This is one of the most useful shortcuts on OneNote over competitors like Evernote and other web-based tools.

  15. OneNote iOS - Swipe navigation to next or previous page

    In OneNote for iOS, when viewing a page, allow swiping left or right to navigate between pages. As a safety feature, allow swipe navigation only from the bottom of the screen. Currently, I have to tap in the upper left to exit the page then select the next page.

  16. Microsoft bridge the gap please... "Goodnotes" replica desperately needed

    Seeing how Apple made the giant mistake of not enabling the apple pencil on their iPhone release.... i am not wanting to give up my Samsung Note 8!

    To have a seamless experience in notetaking from my phone to my tablet and laptop, i need a app that can be recognized across all boards...

    Goodnotes, hands down, is the gold standard! It has the ability to perform using pdf embedded links in the app. This enables digital planning to notebooks with tabs.

    Please Microsoft break the barrier and add this kind of functionality to those of us wanting to be…

  17. Allow MSG attachments to be viewed from Notebooks

    In OneNote 2016 our staff commonly drag & drop email messages into their OneNote notebooks from Microsoft Outlook 2016. When these notebooks are viewed in OneNote for iOS the embedded Outlook messages (MSG files) cannot be viewed.

  19. 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.

  20. Improve new drag and drop feature

    We should be able to drag and drop:

    -video from the Apple Photos app. At least ones that were recorded in 720p HD at 30fps.

    -Url’s. Dropping them right onto the page is better than opening the Hyperlink feature then dropping them into the text box.

    Am I missing anything?
