  2. Zoom Window + Auto Advance for the iPad + Pencil

    Have a zoom in window + auto advance feature while using the Apple Pencil to note things. This is a basic feature in Notability and Goodnotes that improves the writing experience solving the problem of having to manually pan forward once reaching the edge of the screen.

  3. Start or switch to 'Draw Mode' When Apple Pencil is used

    Hi Microsoft,

    I think it would be of use to automatically switch to 'draw' mode, for a written note, when the writing area is touched with the Apple Pencil. At the moment you have to manually click the ribbon, select draw, select colour of pencil etc. and there are multiple additional clicks required to get to the point that you would like to be at.

    I don't think too many people use the pencil for navigation through menus, it's designed as an input device, and so I think the draw mode should automatically begin when the pencil is used (like…

  5. Add the option for INTERNAL LINKS (texts from one page to another page, or from one section to another)

    It would be very useful if we can have the option of using internal links to connect one section (or page) to another section (or page), through texts or paragraphs. Thank you!

  6. Create Sticky Note from the widget

    Now that Sticky Note is supported on iPad and iPhone, it should support creating new Sticky Note right from the iOS widget. Sticky Notes are for making quick notes — what better and faster way to do it than from the widget itself

  7. add native ipad os 14 apple pencil pen tools

    Ipad OS 14 has really great native drawing tools, like a pencil, pen, ruler, highliter, which are far more sophisticated, than the ipad OneNote pens.

  8. Cannot place text box on top of an image on an iPhone

    Currently, if you have an image set to background on a OneNote page on the iPhone, you cannot place a text box on top of the image. You can only type around it. You are able to type on the image using OneNote Windows and iPad.

  9. Bring back « E-mail Page »

    Bring back the "e-mail page" feature as it was in previous versions of o note. It was much more convenient and easy to use.

  10. Please Prevent Copied Ink from Pasting as Picture instead of Ink on iPad iOS 13

    Please Prevent Copied Ink from Pasting as Picture instead of Ink on iPad iOS 13.

    Copying and pasting ink worked fine before iOS 13. Unclear why this capability got dropped.

  11. Option to disable pressure sensitivity with Apple Pencil

    In drawing mode I am frequently having to rewrite words so that they are all of uniform thickness. What’s more frustrating, this feature is varying and happens more on a whim than the actual pressure I apply to my iPad with the pencil. If we had the option to disable this feature it would save me a lot of time writing my notes, as the varying levels of thickness throughout is bothersome and time consuming to change.

  13. High battery usage when offline and using Apple Pencil

    Compared to when connected to the Internet, battery consumption by OneNote while using Apple Pencil to write notes is several times higher. The battery drain while online is approximately 10%/hour, while offline is approximately 30%/hour.

  15. Editing tools for pictures after inserting them on a document

    It's annoying to go to another app for editing a picture instead of editing it in the same app

  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.

  18. Please enable to setup default paper

    Hi I am a new user of OneNote since I got my iPad 2 weeks ago. I love the app so far for note taking. However, I wish I can set default paper style (line, colour, etc.) so I don’t have to do it every time when I create a new page. That would save some hassle. Thank you so much!

  20. Rotate OneNote

    I frequently find myself awkwardly positioning myself or my iPad when scribbling notes down. It would be awesome to be able to rotate and zoom using a pinch and zoom gesture
