  3. Please let the grid/lines to stay when exporting a page of notes as PDF or when sharing the link as a PDF

    Whenever I write notes with a grid or lines, they never are included when i export the notes as a PDF or when i share the link to the page with someone else and they could only see the writing without the grid/lines. It would be convenient to have the grid/lines included when one tries to export notes

  4. More than just one style of bullet point

    Please add an option where you can change the bullet styles so that you can use more than just the small black dot all the time.

  5. Please allow saving gridlines (ruled lines) in pdf format

    The ruled lines we can use to give. a college notebook interface from the view tab are not saved when one note file is saved as pdf. Please give us an option to save it with the ruled lines.

  6. Turn off dark mode in just the app

    I should have the ability to run OneNote in light mode without having to switch the entire iPad out of dark mode. The individual apps themselves should have a toggle for light and dark mode independent of the rest of the OS. I don’t like writing on negative space, and switching the whole iPad to light mode to accommodate for this one app is hindering my overall experience

    Thank you everyone for the feedback so far, we really do appreciate it. We wanted to understand this a little better.

    Could we please share some additional comments of things we were trying that it would have helped to have such a setting or toggle?

    Additionally, we did want to share that on iPad if you go to “View” > “Switch Background”, you will be able to make the canvas/page be in light mode. On iPhone, if you’re on a page at the top right, tap on the “…” menu > “Switch Background”.

    Looking forward to hearing back, thank you!

  7. Lasso cut and move images

    It would be wonderful if the lasso could cut and move images, it would make one notes a lot more intuitive and allow a better use of the lasso tool.

  8. Treat manuscript text as typed text (or even as an image)

    Hi there, guys. There's something that really bothers me regarding the Onenote app on the Ipad pro. I have the monthly subscription of the office suite, but the experience on the iPad is not in par with that on the PC.

    My main complain is that everytime I draw or write something with the apple Pencil on the OneNote, and I have to correct or add something before that manuscript section, the typed text just goes under or over it, disregarding that there's actually something written there. It can be a graph, for instance, that I drew during Economics. The…

  9. A crop feature for printouts!

    When you add a document, such as a PDF as a print out, it would be very helpful to be able to crop it. I want to have space to work on the problems, but I'm not able to.

  10. Hi, I am using Onenote as my primary note taking app on my iPad.

    I wish if the Developers add these features to Onenote.
    1. While exporting file as pdf, it doesn't keep the grid lines or background colour of the page
    2. If there different types of page size options, like word, it would be great instead of having not ending canvas.
    3. Also in pen tool section, if there was laser pointer pen, it would have been great. It helps while taking online classes.

  11. Highlight straight line PLEASE

    please update OneNote so that you can highlight PDFs and other text with a straight line! This is available on so many other note taking apps and it is so frustrating that OneNote does not have it.

  13. Links

    Please add bi-directional links. I.e When you add a word and want to see where else that word/ concept appear in your notes, then to immediately be able to link to some or all of the other mentions of that word throughout your notebooks. Other note taking apps (like ROAM RESEARCH, BEAR, etc all offer this essential note taking tool. PS. I Love you ONENOTE

  16. Please allow page separation when printing from OneNote app for iOS

    When printing a OneNote page (section or subsection), it currently reduces font size to microscopic to fit all content onto one page — need it to automatically split page into separate pages (like Word) for printing from an iOS device (iPhone / iPad)
