  1. Switching pen color after shaping

    Please give us an option to change the pen color after drawing a shape without changing the color of that exact same shape. It’s so frustrating. I want to be able to draw an arrow in red and then switch back to a black pen without the red arrow switching to black too. You might say: just deselect the arrow. Well, it doesn’t work. You can‘t deselect it. Selection stays forever. The only workaround is to select the text tool, write some letters and switch back to the pen tool. That takes too much time!!! Please add this feature. It‘d…

  2. I would like to see the Cornell note format be added to the paper style options

    Cornell Notes are a popular method for note taking and OneNote would benefit to offer this as well.

  3. In iOS how can we set the ruled lines as an "always create page with rule lines"?

    In iOS how can we set the ruled lines as an "always create page with rule lines"? We can set it on our Windows 10 but can't figure out how to set the default on the iPad Pro.

  4. Consistency across devices

    In many educational settings students have a range of different devices.

    Microsoft's failure to implement the same functionality across different devices is a major impediment in education.

  5. Fix storage bug in version 16.42

    I have recently updated the OneNote app on my IPad to version 16.42 (20100803) and the app suddenly bloats my storage, by increasing in size (cache I suppose) from about 4gb to 15gb including data within minutes!!! The app starts freezing and my device tells me I am running out of space. This happens even for simple notes, no images. Closing notebooks temporarily restores the app to a decent size, but then soon thereafter it increases in size again. I believe there is some bug which keeps creating data in the background. Please update the app fixing this issue ASAP!!!…

    When you do Haptic Touch, have sticky note as an option so you can get to the option quicker.

  7. Allow "." (dot/point) in notebook names like "1.1 page", "1.3 page"

    In iOS OneNote Apps it is not possible to use correctly "." (dot/point) in notebook names like
    "1.1 page"
    "1.3 page"

    You can create such a notebook name, but it is displayes as "1"
    (= everythink after the first dot is cutted)

    Seems to be a bug since such notebook names are allowed and correclty displayed in
    1) Win10: OneNote 2016: yes
    2) Win10: App.OneNote: yes
    3) Win10: OneDrive in WindowsExplorer: yes
    4) Office 365 (Online) Sharepoint (Teamwebsite): yes
    5) iOS Apps OneNote: NO

    Can you please allow "." (dot/point) "." in notebook names everywhere in every OneNote app/Website/Desktop app?

  9. Start or switch to 'Draw Mode' When Apple Pencil is used

    Hi Microsoft,

    I think it would be of use to automatically switch to 'draw' mode, for a written note, when the writing area is touched with the Apple Pencil. At the moment you have to manually click the ribbon, select draw, select colour of pencil etc. and there are multiple additional clicks required to get to the point that you would like to be at.

    I don't think too many people use the pencil for navigation through menus, it's designed as an input device, and so I think the draw mode should automatically begin when the pencil is used (like…

  10. Order notes in notebook by date created/date modified/alphabetical order

    Hi Microsoft,
    Could we please add the functionality of ordering a notebooks notes by certain constraints such as alphabetical/date created etc. like on the desktop version (or make them mirror the desktop version order at least) would make it a lot easier when I use lots of devices to create notes!

    Thanks,
    DT

  11. Ruler Functions, electric symbol catalog, pdf import from websites

    In general this is a great tool for engineering students. I need to see:
    - import of pdfs from websites more easily.
    - A triangle ruler, or just a normal Ruler!, is a fundamental part of taking good notes.
    - quick graph creation with numbers and values
    - simple symbol catalog (like in visio) with favorites for quick access

  13. 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!

  17. Need to be able to move paragraphs up and down! (whether bulleted or not)

    Usefulness of mobile version very impaired by not being able to move paragraphs (whether bulleted items or not) up and down! Should be able to drag them as well as have buttons (like current indent/outdent buttons) to move paragraphs quickly.

    Please add this essential feature! 🙏

  18. Selecting the handwritten notes without leaving some letters apart

    I am always having the problem with moving or scaling a whole sentence or at least a word without leaving some strokes from a letter apart. I think it would be better if the lasso tool could select specific handwritten text without meticulously surrounding every single letter from a word or a sentence with the lasso tool.
    Or being able to group the handwritten notes beforehand with a picture would be perfect as well in order to just move the picture with the handwritten notes without surrounding the picture again with a lasso tool.
    As one is limited to zoom…

  19. The space bar on OneNote does not work with an external keyboard.

    When using Logitech’s iPad Pro keyboard, I have found the space bar does not work at all when using one note. It’s function seems to be connected to the page search bar, so when typing a sentence it ends up looking like this: “hellomynameis” rather than “hello my name is.” I do not have this problem with any other app, the keyboard is brand new and space bar works elsewhere (I am typing this message with said keyboard.) This renders one note completely useless to me and I would really appreciate it if the problem could be fixed ASAP.

  20. Extremely frustrating.

    Extremely frustrating.
    The OneNote app on my iPad pro (3rd gen) started getting laggy after the cache started to build up. So I had to reinstall the app. Now a good portion of my notes just FAILS to resync. It says "We couldnt open this page" . I tried logging out and logging back in, no use. I contacted support, they barely have any idea. Although I am able to access these notes from my laptop (OneNote 2016 app), my ipad just fails repeatedly to sync them. And the sad part is, after I did a bit of researching, I…
