  1. Improved handwriting

    The writing/annotating feature in OneNote for iPad is not nearly as good as it is in Notability. If Microsoft wants to capture more of the note-taking market, they should improve OneNote's annotating feature. Particularly how smooth it is, what it looks like and how quickly it syncs with other versions of the application.

  2. Please add the shortcut (“Cmd” + “.”) to enable bullet points.

    The standard keyboard shortcut to insert bullet points is not present in the iPad version of OneNote. It would be immensely useful if it were to be added.

  3. OneNote only kept for less than 1 year

    if OneNote is only useful for notes meant to be kept for < 1 year, in which case I'll have to use a different app for notes that I keep and periodically update long term.

    Re-adding back notes older than 1 year every time is not feasible.

  4. Show recent changes by users of a shared notebook

    Show the changes just like in the windows version in bold and keep them bold until marked as read – that is essential if you are a teacher or work with a team.

  5. Linked references

    Allow bi-directional linking and linked references to help compete with Roam Research app / obsidian. I really want to keep all my notes in.

  6. Please add all the Table Functions for iPad

  8. 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!!!…

  9. Do NOT close page when it is moved to other section.

    If you tap and hold page name in the section, editing mode is invoked and you can select page and move it to a different section.
    When it’s done, the page is closed and the next page in the source section is opened.
    If you want to move multiple pages from source section, it works fine.

    However if you want to move the page to correct section and edit it, the current behaviour is very inconvenient.

    Please add a question after the move “should the page be closed? Yes/No”.
    If you also will add an option to remember that answer…

  14. deselect lasso - screen jumps to top

    When I am using the lasso tool to select objects - when i click off to deselect the object, my screen will jump up to the top of the current image i am on.

    So when I am working on a lecture with 2-pages per slide, it jumps up to the top of the current slide, which brings me away from the slide/area I am working on

  15. Solve handwritten Mathequations as i can do on the Web Version of OneNote

    In the web Version of OneNote is this „math“ Feature were you can circle/mark handwritten math-equations and they are solved directly in OneNote.

    I would like to be able to do that on my iPad. It is such a convenient feature for quick or even langer calculations.

  16. 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.

  17. Pen Style

    Like other note taking apps and even apples integrated pdf markup tool, the pen has a slight "cursive" ability that makes all the letters looks a little nicer and better put together... making the handwriting neats.

    I would like to see this in onenote

  19. Migliorare salvataggio PDF

    Da iPad Non riesco ad esportare i pdf in modo corretto, quando cerco di stamparli o salvarli in pdf mi crea un unico enorme pdf lungo NON in A4. Anche dal pc non riesco a stampare e se lo fa non adatta il contenuto ad un A4 ma risulta tutto tagliato e sporgente su altre pagine rendendo impossibile la lettura. Come faccio ad esportare in A4 da iPad? E da Mac? Grazie

  20. OneNote section disappeared ticket ref: 1016268566

    Hello, i was sent by the live chat support here to explain the issue i had with OneNote, regarding the complete disappearing of an entire section in my notebook.

    i'll quickly recap. Basically i was working on some notes on the iPad App, writing on a page of my 'Exams' section. While i was working i got distracted for a moment and the section consisting of many pages completely disappeared. I haven't been able to find trace of the lost section, not through the search option, nor through the notebook's history.

    I should also mention that onedrive didn't recognize the…
