Please add a more simple faster way to type and insert correctly formatted math equations
OneNote 2016 has the math equation menu but the OneNote app lacks this functionality. The new app allows you to select an equation you type or write but it doesn't always work right. If you type an equation, it looks like "sqrt(4)^2" until you hit the math button and formats it on that menu. It unfortunately doesn't give you the option to replace it with the formatted text.
This would help me a lot at taking notes in Calculus 1 and 2.
Thank you for the feedback. We are currently investigating.

I completely agree, this is a crippling absence in the OneNote Windows 10 App.
In OneNote 2016, you can go to Insert > Equations and have an excellent editor.
Or Insert > Symbols and choose from accented letters, Greek letters, math/science/currency symbols, etc.For any people in STEM, being able to edit our own equations is key. For any people using a language other than English, being able to insert accented letters is key. For people talking about currency, the weather, or units like micrometers or Ohms, symbols are necessary.
When will this feature be added?

I am a student and often take notes on OneNote for everything from English to Algebra! I find that OneNote is better than any other notetaking app for me, but I cannot write down equations OR use the math feature on the app. It would really help it this was fixed. Please upvote if you agree!
