    • Better editing

      I would like to have back the ability to make circles, draw straight lines to edit my PDFs like before the last update. The apps was perfect for the kind of work I do and not having to pay a LOT of money to do it. Like in my photo please please bring it back

      • PDF Tool

        The PDF Tools (the mark up tool, bookmark and annotation tabs) worked extremely well before the latest update. The upgrade has removed a lot of the functionality that existed - a moveable tool bar, easy to find pages that were either bookmarked or annotated, the ability to draw straight lines with ease, etc.

        The current pdf viewer and tools seem to be retrograde and make the process of working on pdfs MUCH slower.

          以前まで、iPad 用 Office アプリでは閲覧権限のファイルに対して描画を行い、変更内容を保存する時に新しくファイルを作ることで保存できたが、現在は閲覧権限の Office ファイルに対しては描画ができず、ファイルを複製してから描画を行う必要があり不便に感じているため、戻す機能を提供して欲しい。
          また、モバイル用アプリでは、いつ仕様変更が行われたのかなどの公開情報が乏しく、ロードマップ等に詳細を公開して欲しい。

          Previously in Office app for iPad, it was possible to draw a file with view permission and to save the file as a new one. However, currently users are not allowed to draw the view permission file directly. To do so, we must copy the file first and then make drawing to it.
          For improvement of usability, roll back the previous way and let users to draw the file and then make a copy file.

          • OneDrive on ISO - Annotating PDFs has changed...and now mark-ups look bad

            OneDrive has been my goto app for pdf annotations on the iPad. After the last update, though, the annotations menu has completely changed and making mark-ups is tricky (and ugly) - it's like OneDrive is not longer compatible with apple pencil. This diminishes the usability of the app by a lot!

            • Warn users about features about features that are about be removed.

              The way that almost every PDF-annotations was removed leaving just a few basic functions without any warning or mention of it in the update log is extremely frustrating (version 10.34.11 to 10.37.1 i think). I am in charge of assisting 30-40 people using OneDrive as its primary synchronization tool and up until the recent versions we have been using the built-in PDF-annotations tools extensively. When this feature was removed without any warning or mention in the update-log, we basically came to a standstill. There is currently no good way to edit PDFs without exporting and importing every single file. I…

              • Enable form box editing in PDFs again please

                Since around 1 week I cannot edit a PDF that has forms included (blue boxes for text input, a signature field also). Before it was like this: When opening the PDF within onedrive, the pdf opened up with the forms appearing in transparent blue boxes, also the signature field appeard. Upon clicking a form box one could type the text inside. When clicking the signature box it was possible to sign the PDF.
                Since 1 week when opening the PDF, no more blue form boxes appear, as if it was disabled. I couldn't find any settings to enable the form…

                  • iPad でスクリーンショットを撮った時に時刻、日付やバッテリー残量が映ることについて

                    iPad で OneDrive 内の画像ファイルを全画面表示させた時にスクリーンショットを撮ると、
                    画面上部に時刻や日付やバッテリー残量表示が映ってしまう。
                    時刻や日付やバッテリー残量表示がスクリーンショットに映らないように改善してほしい。
                    または、時刻や日付やバッテリー残量表示が映らない設定を追加してほしい。

                    Using iPad, when you take screenshots of any files stored in OneDrive, system tool bar provided by iOS including such as current time, date or battery status - is captured. I really don't want to make this happen (actually system tool bar is not captured if you open a file using DropBox). Please make improvement on your OneDrive app to exclude system tool bar in the screen shots. Or, please create an option to exclude the tool bar from screen shots.

                    • Please bring back the original markup tool for PDF’s in iOS. The new version 10.38.2 makes editing a pain

                      The new version of onedrive has erased one of the best features for editing PDF’s. The older version of the Markup Tool made editing PDF’s much easier than what’s in place now. :(

                      • Allow the replay of mp4 video files on the app

                        Currently, .mp4 videos are able to be played within browser but the 'format isn't supported by this application' on the onedrive app. I, personally, upload lecture videos so that i can access them from anywhere. Having them readily available on the onedrive app rather than on a browser on my phone would load the video a lot faster and make the onedrive app worth the download.

                          • Sort photos by date taken not date created in OneDrive

                            When sorting photos by date, the app sorts by date file was created in OneDrive as opposed to the date when the photo was taken.

                            When looking Photos menu, it list files by upload date or date created in OneDrive, from the user perspective, the date uploaded to OneDrive it's absolutely irrelevant.

                            This has been around since before 2015, isn't it time to change how Photos menu lists the content or at least give user the option to choose?

                            This bug defeats completely the Photo menu purpose, the one place to see all your mixed by date pics!

                              • Fix the missing toolbar on pdfs.

                                I recently noticed that I no longer have a tool bar option when reading pdfs in the OneDrive app for iOS. I don't have any of the annotation options at all. Is your toolbar to highlight texts and such just gone? I’ve tried searching on your FAQ, where it says there should be some sort of toolbar at the top that allows you to highlight and do all sorts of things to the text. When I open a pdf all I see at the top is a faded blue bar, where I can press “Done” in the left corner, and…

                                  編集できる権限がある PDF だと注釈機能が使用できる。
                                  表示する権限の PDF だと注釈機能が使用できない。
                                  表示する権限であっても、注釈機能が使用できるようにしてほしい。
                                  In a PDF file which is granted a permission to edit we can use the annotation tool, but we are not able to use the annotation tool in a PDF with a permission to view.

                                  For improvement of usability, make it possible to use the annotation tool in a PDF with a view permission.

                                  Thank you for your consideration.

                                  • Restore Annotation of PDF Files

                                    Not sure what prompted the developers to eliminate the ability to annotate PDF files within OneDrive but BIG mistake. Renders OneDrive almost useless to me now. Please restore this ability

                                    • PDF annotation tool - NOT SOLVED

                                      Several months ago Microsoft changed the wonderful PDF annotation tool on Onedrive for iOS, to a new version that works very bad. A large group of people from industry and academy who use the iPAD with Onedrive got justifiably furious. At the following months Microsoft provided us with some minor fixes, and labeled this issue as "FIXED". No Microsoft, the issue is far from being fixed!

                                      Among the things that are still not fixed:
                                      -Eraser is too crude, it deletes too big of an area and not offering precise work as the previous tool offered. Moreover there is no outline…

                                      • Add “New Folder” when saving scan file

                                        Add option of “New Folder” when saving the scanned file.

                                        After capturing an image from Scan feature in OneDrive, you have an option to name the file and select the folder you want to save the scanned file in, but there is no feature to create a new folder and save the file in it.

                                        • The new PDF markup toolbar is a significant step backwards

                                          bring back the PDF markup toolbar of old --- jeezz -- why did the developers mess this up -- it was great before -- it is quite bad now. user friendliness a big step backwards. When using the pen to write on the document the line size goes from 1pt to 50pt --- seriously ??? Who could possibly use a 50pt line ? The pen should be refined to work really well in the 1-2pt line width --- as it is now the 1pt seems to barely work and the 2 point line is to thick for writing. Line widths…
