  1. Let's not overthink this process...The Dude would definitely not appreciate this.

    Give each stupid a code of 5 numbers (c'mon...let's face it, we can't remembered on Sunday if it was still Saturday). So that every time we signed into this amazing and not at all time consuming website, each of us will have a specific code to type in and therefore not have to cry and *** our pants because we can't figure out what our Username is...I mean I heard a friend or someone did that or whatever....

  4. 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.

  5. Upgrade the apple pencil experience.

    I love everything about OneNote for iPad except for the main thing that I use it for, which is the apple pencil. PLEASE look at apps like Notability and recognize that the handwriting/drawing experience is so much more enjoyable/precise/better looking than OneNote. The OneNote handwriting is so clunky and handwriting looks so sloppy with the current pencil options.This should be such an easy thing to fix, please for everyone, do it!!!

  7. 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:

  10. Undo Set Picture as Background

    Printouts that have been set as background may still need to be edited e.g. resize, insert/remove space between pages, etc. Please allow us to set pictures back on the foreground for editing.

  13. Have the option to have infinite page or a defined normal page

    Every “page” on one note is infinite, it would be nice to have the option of just a regular page size for more structure on certain things

  14. Add Shapes, Lines, and Graphs like in the Windows 10 version

    In the Windows 10 version, you can add custom shapes (circles, rectangles, triangles) as well as lines and graph templates for both 2D and 3D. There is also an ink to shape option which is helpful for drawing more complex shapes. I would love to see this on the iPad!

  15. Inking offset on iPad

    Teacher inking is not showing in correct place on student iPads, making the app unusable in a school setting. Disappointed that I was told to raise this in this forum when it is clearly a bug, not a feature request. It was working fine before.

  17. Option to Save Local OneNote Files

    In order to use OneNote for work, I need the option to save files to a device (i.e. an iPad or computer). Use of OneNote could be a total game-changer for work, but this privacy/security issue makes unusable for critical tasks.

  18. Typing notes and recording audio simultaneously

    Please implement the function to type and record audio simultaneously and sync the typing with the recording like notability.
    Notability has this feature long ago and this is the main reason why I use notability over OneNote. This feature is indispensable!
    I hope you will implement it in the near future so I can start to use OneNote.

  19. High mobile data consumption of mobile OneNote

    When switching from Wi-Fi to mobile and from mobile to Wi-Fi, OneNote mobile starts to sync again and uses high data consumption from the internet network.
    It should be fixed, so that be saved additional costs.
