  1. Version 10.1 image tiles too small

    New version has significantly reduced image tile size, that’s not the point of image tiles!

    List image size is now about the same size as tiled & there’s lots of wasted space when using tiled view.

          • Better support for Sketch.app files

            We still use Dropbox as OneDrive doesn't play nicely with the Sketch.app files on the Mac our user experience designers use. We'd love to move off of Dropbox entirely and only use OneDrive, but aren't able to until Sketch.app files are better supported.

              It would be great if the admin will be able to bulk enable/disable the IRM setting for OneDrive for Business…

                • Enable Cortana to use OneDrive music to play on Harman/Kardon Invoke

                  I really want to be able to play the music that I have stored on my OneDrive on my Harman/Kardon Invoke.
                  Groove integration would also be nice, then I can play Groove playlists on my Invoke.

                  • Allow File Explorer to display OneDrive folder names that are not subscribed.

                    Its great that we can subscribe, or not, to OneDrive folders and thus, ease the burden on the local hard drive. However, it would be nice to at least view all the folder names of those that are not subscribed. Without the ability to View, I've often created duplicate folders (which get created with the new name plus "PC name"). Unsubscribed folder names could be indicated as such with a color or other icon.

                    Additionally, allowing a Save to that unsubscribed location would be good too.

                    • Specifiy folder Language per user

                      As the default Language of a OneDrive Site is set by location of your tenant, all our OneDrive Sites have English as default language. That means that all Folders, which are created by default (like Attachments, Notebooks, etc.) are also displayed in English. Please make it possible to specifiy the OneDrive Defauld language or the language for those Folders for individual users, because not everyone in our company is capable of speaking English.

                          • 40% CPU usage

                            Even though all my files are up to date and OneDrive is seemingly doing nothing, it's using upwards of 40% of my CPU resources, causing the chip to turbo up to 3.44Ghz constantly. This is ridiculous and is extremely detrimental to laptop battery life which is important for people who need to get work done on the go. I used to be able to get 4 hours of battery life, now I only get 1 hour all thanks to OneDrive.

                              • Improve the feature of synchronizing more than 100,000 items on a stable basis for OneDrive.

                                I am aware of the behavior the restriction mentioned that the sync performance will possibly deteriorate when the stored items in the library exceed 100,000 items more. However, I need to operate this process frequently so that I wish the feature will be improved enables sync more than 100,000 items on a stable basis as soon as possible.

                                Although I have concerns about if the synchronization is going to be impossible to proceed unexpectly, but so as MS described as "We are working on optimization of OneDrive to improve processing of many Libraries." below the Reference information.

                                • READ ONLY

                                  Could we please have a basic read only setting that doesn't allow 2 users to access the same file (like with network files). File collaboration isn't working or causes too many sync issues. I think the software would be much more stable if this mode was added. I appreciate it's a backward step in technical terms but it works well. Don't drop something just because it is old. Is touch screen better than a mouse or was the mouse the best idea from the start? READ ONLY please on one drive (not in sharing options, i know that is already…

                                      I use the Office client for Mac, but I would say that the feature is inferior to that for Windows. I am currently unable to show the reading of Chinese characters by writing the kana at the name list in Excel nor am I able to add the kana to its list although inputting alphabet it possible. Furthermore, I am able to show only the western calendar even if I can select the Japanese calendar at the…

                                        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

                                        • edit plain text

                                          Bring back plain-text editor to OneDrive.com.

                                          I have no idea why it was removed in the first place, but it needs to come back. What is the point of being able to create a plain-text document if I can't edit it???
