  1. hide side bar allowing to use the full screen for writing or drawing

    Please have this in next update as many user have seen requesting to hide the pages bar, so that we get full use of the screen to writing and drawing.

    The pages side bar is not always required while writing and drawing and hence when required we can access it when hidden.

  2. we need code block formatting

    I'm a developer and I'm constantly finding snippets of code that would be useful in the future. I was wondering if there is an in-app formatting option for code-blocks like Evernote has? This is very annoying:

  3. Drag and drop from other Apps on iPadOS 13

    Such a shame OneNote still doesn’t have the drag and drop from other Apps feature yet, after so many years.

    Please add the feature: we are already on iPadOS!

  5. Siri Shortcuts in iOS 12

    Please support the new Siri Shortcuts that released September 2018. When I have an important idea or thought that I want to get out of my head and recorded asap, it would be nice to invoke Siri, and say "New OneNote" and OneNote opens at a new note ready for me to start typing or dictating. Putting this support in OneNote would allow for a bunch more automation that would really show the power of OneNote as a platform.

  8. Please provide full Onenote features on ipad pro 2019 as per desktop version

    Why deprive premium device users the ability to use premium software features such as handwritten notes to text? This was one of the key reasons for this purchase and pen included. The ipad's portability and handwriting features allow users to take it on the field, instead of a laptop.

  13. Add a confirmation pop-up before the note gets deleted - important for schools

    I'm using iPads with Onenote in my language school. Kids are not always careful, and since it's extremely easy to delete a note in OneNote, they keep disappearing from the tablets to the pupil's discontent. It also is quite troublesome to recover them later.

    Adding a confirmation pop-up would ensure that the action of deleting the note was intentional. There could also be an option to toggle the gestures, so deleting the notes that easily would be impossible.

  14. double tap on the image in typing mode to type directly on it

    same function as onenote windows - double-tap on an image to be able to type directly on it, instead of constantly selecting the image

  15. Improve clipper. I cannot save an entire news article to OneNote on ios like I can on a computer. I get a screenshot at best or only the url

    Improve the clipper on ios. I cannot save an entire news article to OneNote on ios like I can on a computer. At best I get a screenshot and usually it is just the URL which is not helpful.

  17. Selection copy and past of any content, not just written

    If you lasso, it only selects handwritten stuff, but what if there was a selection tool that selected content from the notebook, like even added images so you can take that and put it somewhere else with out having to screenshot it and all that

  18. Rearrange lines of text via handles like Windows program

    I typically need to rearrange my notes from meetings and brainstorming sessions. I also frequently rearrange list to assign tasks in sections and raise up priorities on the list. This is really convenient in the Windows version of OneNote where handles can be used to grab the lines of text. Please bring this into the ipad

  19. Background Sync

    Please, make OneNote NOT have to have focus to sync notes.
    Also....NOT having to have OneNote open either.
    Enable background sync, & I’ll have nothing left to complain about.
