  1. View of thumbnails in picture folders

    With the new upgrade more emphasis was put on showing the file name rather than the thumbnail. I hate it. I use my picture folders for showing photos and projects to both clients and students from my iPhone. And as a photographer it was a great help. But now the thumbnails are really small and the file names are huge and don't even show the full name. I really don't like that I can't switch that view back to the way it was before. Just because you can create a new preview mode doesn't mean you should.

      • Support for .heic files

        Could you please add support for .heic as iOS 11 uses this format and when iOS 11 releases all apple phones will only use this format. As I am on an iOS 11 beta I have noticed my photos are starting to become unviewable in the photos tab and shown as blank .heic files in the files tab. This is a problem that will get more urgent as it gets nearer iOS 11 release as of now for anybody on the beta programme one drive photos is unusable. Please update! Thanks

        • File Renaming

          This latest version of OneDrive for iPad has robbed users of the ability to rename a file or folder by just adjusting a character or number in the existing title. E.g. by adjusting a date or adding an additional letter. You now have to type out the new title in full every time.
          This is a retrograde step and will cause many users much frustration.

          • make chromecast work on iOS devices

            I moved to Onedrive to have all my photos available from any device. I also have Chromecast all over my house. However Apple devices do not have the abilty to Chromecast from Onedrive. This feature should definitely be added.

              • Undo

                Have an undo option. I accidentally moved a file and didn’t know which folder I had thrown it into. If there were an undo option, I could’ve used it to move the folder back. Thanks!

                  • Don't attempt to implement Dynamic Type (larger text) on iPhone/iPad.

                    If Large Text is selected (via Settings/General/Accessability) this is poorly implemented on OneDrive, eg folder names beneath the folder icon (Files view). People with visual disabilities can Zoom the whole page. As mentioned elsewhere when folders are displayed with a sliver of a photo please can this be enlarged as per oneDrive v9.9 (v10 is a setback).

                        • Editable old file name when renaming

                          When renaming a file, it would be very useful to have the old file name pre-filled in the textbox.

                          1. It’d be easier to make a minor change to the filename.
                          2. The file name could be copied. (Useful when renaming a related file to a similar name.)

                            • People Picker for sharing does not meet the functional level as GAL

                              User expects the same level of usability as GAL, such as searching from First Name, Last Name, Common Name, E-mail.

                              Ex. These are not implemented currently.
                              Search with Last name.
                              Search with FirstName+LastName without space.

                              Historically sharing functionality via GAL on iOS app has been removed. Thus their expectation to the UI should be higher than what OneDrive & SharePoint side has currently as its design.

                                  • Add support for viewing Adobe Illustrator Artboards (multi page .AI files) on mobile OneDrive app

                                    Opening an Adobe Illustrator (.ai) file on my mobile OneDrive app will only display the first page. Can you please add multi page (aka artboard) support on mobile apps? Dropbox and Google support this. You can scroll through multi page PDF files no problem but we can't with AI files.

                                    • Viewing of file names in OneDrive

                                      Problem:
                                      Not being able to see file names in full.

                                      There are two ways to view files in onedrive:
                                      1) icon view (not showing full file names or
                                      2) list view.
                                      List view will have a few columns depending on screen size or rotation (portrait / landscape).
                                      If in portrait it will give one column on a cell phone (not showing full file name), when turning to landscape it show two columns, still not showing full file names.

                                      It will be nice to have an option to choose how many columns you want to see on a screen in portrait…

                                      • Show extensions

                                        The main app interface needs an option to turn on extensions. I have a folder right now with over 20 files named test and they each are different programming languages and I can’t tell them apart without the extension. I know you can click on details or open the file within the app but it’s a major hassle when needing one fast

                                        • in the One Drive application, i suggest to add the ability to select which folder (from one Drive) the pctures folder will scan for pictures

                                          n the One Drive application, i suggest to add the ability to select which folder (from one Drive) the pictures folder will scan for pictures. Today, under the pictures tab, you can see all pictures/ movies from all folders which is very annoying.
