  1. Option to disable autocorrect

    I am a university science student. My notes contain many scientific names. OneNote autocorrect keeps changing most of my scientific names. Please, consider an option to disable autocorrect.

    • On screen ruler

      I would love to have an on screen ruler to draw straight lines (other mathematical tools are also welcome!). That way: taking notes with the iPad Pro and Apple Pencil will be even more enjoyable using OneNote!

        • ink to text conversion on ipad

          Add ink to text conversion. It appears that some platforms support ink to text conversion, it is a must-have for iPad, too. It appears it was commented on in the digital ink/handwriting idea.

              It would be really convenient to be able to rename a notebook or section while working directly in the app.

              • We deeply need support for Apple Pencil

                As a customer with an Apple Pencil, sometimes I need to make some quick postils or marks with Apple Pencil while typing. But it will be more troublesome because I couldn't sign on the page with stylus directly but to change the mode into "pen" and then to do the mark. It's not flexible enough like the Word or PowerPoint in iOS, no more than in PC.

                      • Ability to set default zoom

                        Current version of OneNote on iPad allows you to zoom a -single- page to an arbitrary percentage; the view ribbon allows the zoom to be reset to 100% or the page width.

                        It would be useful to allow users to specify a default zoom percentage for pages (i.e. different from 100%) and/or add a button to the view ribbon with a user specified zoom percentage.

                        When syncing handwritten notes from a tablet PC, the handwriting is quite big and I find myself viewing the pages at 80% (which apparently for me is a better default). Also, this allows users to…

                              OneNote does not have an option for deleting notebooks directly from the device. Instead, one has to open OneDrive, locate the file in a folder in order to do so. This is a basic function that should be accommodated

                              • iPhone: Draw or write with a stylus (digital ink or handwriting input)

                                Please allow us to draw! Also, I would love a few additional formatting options.

                                I currently use other apps to annotate and sketch. Onenote would be greatly improved with these features.

                                I realize the phone version should be simplified, as a result of the smaller screen; however, I think there is room to add some features. Notability does a fantastic job of keeping it simple, while allowing the ability to draw and make additional text adjustments (ex. font size, color & heading).

                                    OneNote on the Apple Watch is extremely handy for going through my shopping list while in the super market.

                                    This use case only works properly, if the checkboxes I have added to my shopping list items are visible and checkable.

                                      Microsoft Mathematics is fantastic. It should be built into all versions, including the iOS version (including ink equation entry). At the very least, it should display equations written in windows on these apps.

                                        • Enhance 'Send to OneNote' functionality

                                          I use OneNote as my central repository for all digital assets. To do this, I want to be able to send 'everything' to OneNote. This works well on a PC from Outlook and when screen capturing, but not well from other devices and other applications. Please enhance.
