  1. Make Expand/minimize bullet list function on iPad App and Web editor

    There's a function in the OneNote client that allows a user to expand or minimize bulleted lists. It's more of a cosmetic thing, but very functional for my line of work and personal use on my iPad. I often use the web editor as well and this function is not available... yet.

    • Make the OneNote share extension in Safari quicker

      I don't need a picture of the website, I just need a URL and a title. It's horribly slow sharing a website with OneNote from Safari at the moment.

      • iPad: Realistic Writing

        It would be nice to have realistic writing features. The ink looks a little fake. Adding trailing lines and edges to the writing would make OneNote more professional.

            • Allow the page template folder/directory, to be relocated eg to OneDrive, so it can be shared by mutliple notebooks

              This is important for facilitating OneNote ease of use across a user's multiple machines.

              Would need to synch like any other notebook, to allow offline use.

              Same applies for the tags folder - all these need to be able to "roam", to get best use of the cloud.

              • [Be able to draw on the images] Poder dibujar sobre las imagenes

                Poder dibujar sobre las imagenes. Sería genial poder dibujar círculos o resaltar cosas en las imágenes con los dedos y escogiendo el color.

                • Enable voiceover

                  Give users the ability to use iOS's built in voiceover tools in OneNote so we can have text within a page read aloud.

                  • Inserting files into Onenote

                    In the latest version the possibility to insert files from eg. Cloud Drive was introduced which is great. Also possible to insert files from Dropbox. However, not possible to insert files from Onedrive. Why is that? Strange as Onedrive is a microsoft service

                    • Clipping a recipe in iOS using the sharing should work like the web clipper.

                      I attempted to clip a recipe from chow.com using Safari and the Sharing to OneNote option. I ended up with a OneNote entry that was just a blob of JavaScript.

                      It would be great if the sharing to OneNote worked like the web clipper, so it would have clipped the recipe instead of a JavaScript blob.

                      • iOS: Better app integration

                        When in the likes of safari, when you've loaded a pdf and click 'Open In' you are given the option to open it in various apps, OneNote not being one of them. I'd like to be able to print PDFs (and other documents) to a page in OneNote. OneNote doesn't integrate with hardly any apps on iOS, and with the iOS 8 developer preview - which has new APIs allowing different apps to interact in more ways - available to developers, I'd like to have the ability to print to OneNote, send data to OneNote, etc. straight from my iPhone.

                        • Bug Report: Microsoft OneNote for iPad Won't Show Current Notebooks on iPad Air

                          The following is a bug report copy and pasted from Microsoft Community. The orignal question can be found at the following link:

                          I'm reporting a bug on Microsoft OneNote for iPad which I encountered the first time using the app on an iPad Air.

                          After having signed into my Microsoft account, trying to access previously created OneNote notebooks, by hitting the menu icon and selecting "open more", gets me a list of both some current notebooks and older, previously deleted notebooks from several months ago, that have been removed from the recycle bin on OneDrive. In addition, most of…

                            when using a blutooth keyboard, the on screen keyboard now is visible, it used to be hidden and gave a lot more screen space.

                            • Make iPhone/mobile app responsive

                              1) go to One Note on mac
                              2) lay out text
                              NOTE: you can put it all over the page and move it around. Really cool metaphor. Unique.
                              3) go to your note in mobile
                              RESULT: lots cut off
                              EXPECT: some way to reflow so that it's still usable in Mobile.

                              • Create multi-page document capture option.

                                When inserting a picture into a note, often it's a document with multiple pages. Provide an option for users to select between one or multipage capture so that they can quickly capture a document, convert into PDF, and insert into the note without having to capture each page one by one.

                                    • Quick Notes in current rev is ruined by change in "add" feature

                                      I need a function which adds a note in a fixed known location, so later in the day I can go back and find them all and get things properly allocated and organized. The "+" key on the iphone has lost it's ability to place that note in the Quick Note section regardless of your current location. (It now asks what TYPE of content to create, rather than WHERE to create it.) This change as ruined the concept of quick notes - it's no longer quick.

                                        As soon as I saw OneNote performs OCR I got it and prepared to ditch Evernote. Immediately I took a photo of a mind map with my iPhone OneNote app and set it as a whiteboard. Now I don't know what to do. No help anywhere.

                                        • Include iOS notes font

                                          When copying and pasting between iOS notes and one note the font is different so I worked on a note in one note and began to paste it back to iOS notes (additional content) my iOS note now has the first portion in iOS font and the sections I've worked on in one note in MS fonts! I can't simply switch it!
