  3. By adding the page size option

    The one thing that’s limiting OneNote app in iPad is it not having the option to change the size of the page. And thats a big turn off.

  4. A4

    Please add the option to scale the paper to DIN-A4 so it can easily be exported for others or even printed. Especially for handwritten Notes.
    Thank you!

  5. multiple account

    Add a way to tell which account which notebook belongs. I have many notebooks for my personal account and work account. I'm unable to tell which account each notebook resides using the iPad app.

  7. Expand Sections navigation pane

    Allow an option to resize the Sections navigation pane wider/smaller depending on user preference - this would allow a long section title to be viewed in its entirety, or free more space on the screen for the note. This feature is enabled in the iMac/Macbook app, please carry it over to the iPad/iPhone app as well.

  8. Treat PDFs as PDFs

    When selecting the printout option, pdfs are treated as background images. It would be great if I could annotate on them, instead of just writtng over an image

  9. Fix Highlights in Dark Mode

    When using a white background - highlight pens show up clear
    When using dark mode they all but disappear and look horrid.
    When dark mode is active highlights need to be stronger colour.
    FYI I'm using an ipad pro.

  10. Sync hand writing notes with audio recording.

    I have used Onenote on the surface pro 4 and loved it. But the experience on the Ipad Pro is lacking a major feature: audio recording while taking notes + sync playback with the note taking. When you start the audio record in Onenote on the Ipad you can’t do anything else... Is there something I’m missing? If not, Microsoft please address this! Otherwise this is a great app and I love being able to move from the Ipad to my Pc and find all of my notes.

  11. Search on page

    I see this search function has been requested for over 4 years. It’s about time to listen to the need for such a basic function. I really wonder about MS interest in listening to its Users!

  12. Enable option to treat iOS ink as either 'handwriting' or 'drawing'

    Prior to December of 2017 OneNote interpreted iOS pen inputs as 'handwriting' which enables server side indexing of handwritten notes.

    In December, during an update, this was changed to 'drawing' which means that all handwritten notes made on iOS must be manually converted using a win32 application.

    A support thread was started here:
    https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/forum/msofficeonenote-msoimobile-mso_o365b/handwriting-recognition-stopped-working-on-ipad/85269887-c426-4eb4-adf5-bc749aeae50e?messageId=d79d1886-b44b-459a-ba83-2e8edc01f267&rtAction=1526467916381

    Which was just recently closed as 'Design Behavior'. Instead of just going back to default all ink input as handwriting, it would be hugely beneficial to be able to toggle the default input in the settings menu.

  14. Horizontal writing

    I would like OneNote to be better suitable to write at full zoom and make me allowed to shift more to the right on the page without OneNote stopping me.

    Now this doesn't work as expected.

    Zoom to full, and write the whole page, move to the right and continue.
    Suddenly you will get to a point of where OneNote doesn't allow you to move further to the right. You will be able to write, but you cannot allocate a full "page" and start writing.

    Breaks the flow of writing if writing horizontal..
    Vertical works fine.

    While you are at…

  15. Offline Error Message shifts the whole page

    Please move the notification area or stop the notification area from moving the whole page when I receive "Offline Error message".

    This shifts the whole page when I'm writing and is super annoying.
    I'm moving a lot and hence this message shows up often and is of no importance to me since it syncs not at that moment, but later e.g (5 min later or when ever the network is ready).

    If i have a bad connection this happens too often and sucks.

  16. 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.

  17. Pdf background for all pages

    It would be great to be able to select all imported pdf printouts to be as background. For every lecture I have about 50 pages that needs manual "Set as background", it can take many precious minutes from a student.

  19. 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.
