  1. Add the "Pencil" option in the add pen menu

    This feature is available in Word iOS but not in OneNote. Additionaly, It would also be great if you could achieve a similar look to Apple's Pencil option in their Note App.

    Thank you for considering our feature requests.

  7. Improve the highlight color for darkmode

    The color of the highlight pens do not work well in darkmode, it is not very useful as the highlighted text does not stand out.
    It would be great if the color worked in dark mode as well as it works for writing pens.

  8. Allow users to press CTRL to draw straight lines

    I know the shape tool exists but it is very time consuming to go back and forth between the shapes and the pens when working. How about if I am holding the highlighter and I want to highlight in a straight line I can press CTRL and it will lock my drawing to the Y axis point where I pressed CTRL at. So no matter how much I move my mouse up or down it will draw that line straight!

    Please!!

  10. Enable hand written sticky notes in OneNote and make these visible in the iPad new widget area

    The sticky notes in OneNote are a great idea, it would be great if they can be hand written instead of typed only.

    When a sticky note is created, it would be great if you see it all the time. With the new Widget bar on the iPad home screen this should be possible, keep marked/important sticky notes permanent visible there (just like a real sticky note on the side of your screen).

  11. Funktion, Bilder aus einem OneNote zu speichern

    Mir fehlt die Funktion, Bilder aus einem OneNote Notizheft in meinen Fotos zu speichern. Ich weiß, es gibt Office Lens als Alternative - aber es geht manchmal einfach schneller, Bilder (Tafelbilder, Buchausschnitte direkt über OneNote zu foografieren)

  12. clear text format with a shorcut

    Hi , i think would be great to have at least that option to clear format text by presing a shorcut key , i mean on windows i always press “control + shift + N “ and the text will fit to my basic font.

  13. Adjust page size for ipad

    I need the ability to adjust page size in onenote on ipad, A3, A4 and so on. Then be able to extract into pdf or something. So far, goodnotes and notability is better due to this issue. Also you should look into the audio record function in notability, its amazing.

  16. Support for iOS Shortcuts app

    Several journaling apps like Bear and Day One support note creation through the new iOS shortcuts app. Would love to see OneNote support this feature too, with actions like adding a new note, inserting content (text, pictures...) into an existing page, etc.

  17. eraser auto-deselect

    Hello OneNote Team,

    A feature that is so simple but so useful is auto-deselect for the eraser. Imagine that you are handwriting, then you click on the eraser button to erase one letter, then it automatically goes back to your previous pen once you are done erasing.

    This is a very simple feature that would benefit many many users. Especially for iPad Pro users with the Apple Pencil 2.

    Thank you

  19. Please add “read only mode”

    It’s inconvenient that the OneNote is always under “edit mode” when I just want to glance or read my notes.

  20. Two tap

    Undo with 2 Finger tap in pencil Mode. 3 Finger tap to redo.
    Also the Option to use the Lineal / ruler.
    Additionaly the very left Side of the „Paper“ is Not usable. Writing there leads to no text or spilt letters.
