  1. Fix bug when using an external keyboard

    Currently using an external keyboard (logitech) for iPad.
    Pressing the return (enter) key skips an extra line (will act as if pressed twiced). I've noticed this ever since the latest update.
    Does not occur in other writing apps. Also doesn't occur when using the on-screen keyboard.
    Typing with the external keyboard is also slightly laggier than using the on screen keyboard.

      • iPad Update finished with 2 OneNote App Icons

        When the new OneNote version is available a diagonal 'New' is displayed on the app icon. After the new version is installed, the old version, with the diagonal 'New' still exists alone with the real new version icon with no 'New' table.
        I accidentally deleted the new version instead of the old diagonal 'New' version.
        This is confusing.

        • Option to choose notebook "Page tabs" place in Online & IOS version

          There is an option in windows free version to choose the place of "page tabs", but i couldn't find anything similar in my Ipad or in the online version
          Right now it is on the left side of my screen & i can't do anything to reverse it to the right, where I had a better view of the whole page

            • Disable pages if only one exist in a tab

              OneNote have 3 layers
              Notebooks (can be shared)
              --> Tabs or Fans (For grouping pages)
              ----> Pages ( Can have sub pages.)

              Can we please have a feature where the pages automaticly is hidden until a new page has been added. That way you save one click when navigating to your notes in the notebook.

              Or a option to disable pages for a notebook will also be fine.

              I belive this feature is missing from ALL platforms.

              • Can no longer open notebooks from OneDrive

                Since version 2.11.7 on an iPad, I am unable to open the notebook using the OneNote App. From the new OneDrive App, there is no icon associated with the notebook file and if I try to tap it to open it, it asks which program I would like to use. Selecting OneNote attempts to insert the file into a OneNote notebook as a file. From OneNote, open more is only my recent notebooks, there is no way to go out and get notebooks I have never opened in my OneNote iPad app.

                • The iPad app is slow after the last update

                  I am using iOS 8.3 on an iPad Air.
                  Since the last update (with new notebook management), OneNote has been really choppy when entering text input either through the on-screen keyboard or an external bluetooth keyboard.
                  I have had to change to regular notes on iPad for the moment, since the choppy text input takes too much attention and I could not take coherent notes while e.g. listening to a talk.

                        hi。我有一個問題,關於onenote for ipad。我分別在一台iPad air2 和一台iPad mini2上安裝了此款軟件。最近兩天,我忽然發現mini2上的onenote無法登陸,一直循環提示輸入帳戶和密碼。奇怪的是,air2是正常的。兩台設備的操作系統版本一致。另外,我在app store的評論區裏看見了一樣的抱怨。這個異常狀況嚴重影響我的工作。希望儘快得到你們的幫助。

                        • Selective wipe of corporate OneNote notebooks from personal devices

                          Along the same lines as OWA for iPhone, allow people to connect to corporate notebooks from personal devices. But also allow corporates to wipe corp notebooks from personal devices, should the need arise.

                          • After the last upgrade of OneNote for IOS our x.509 login doesn't work any more.

                            Has the support for x.509 been removed in the latest version?

                              Would be great if you could upload files into pages within a section of your notebook. Now that is not possible. It will create a new page. Basically digging a level deeper in your notebook

                              • Can't adjust brightness of camera on iPad Air running iOS 8.1

                                I have been using one note to take notes during lectures and talks. I have previously been able to take pictures of a bright slide from a projector and the camera would adjust brightness. Using my iPad air that is fully updated, the camera no longer does this. If I go into the native camera app, it adjusts the brightness so that the slide is legible. Now I just get a white overexposed square.

                                      OneNote says I must enable cookies to sign in. Which ones? It doesn't say.

                                        • Enable changing display name of notebooks shared with you on iPhone

                                          When users share their notebooks with me I have the ability (within the desktop software) to give the notefbook a "friendly" name that shows in my list... since often other's notebooks name don't make sense to me...
