  1. 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!

    Allow us to change width of Eraser when I edit PDF files in OneDrive app

    ***************
    ■Description(内容):
    OneDrive アプリから PDF ファイルを開き編集をする場合、消しゴムを使用した際に範囲が大きすぎて意図しない文字を消してしまう。
    消しゴムの範囲を小さくするか消しゴムの範囲を変更できるように修正お願いします。

    I would like to see the feature to change width of Eraser, or to have smaller Eraser in OneDrive app.
    When I edit PDF file in the app, the Eraser is too wide, so I erase some contents I don’t intend to do so.

  3. 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.

  5. Allow "." (dot/point) in notebook names like "1.1 page", "1.3 page"

    In iOS OneDrive App it is not possible to use correctly "." (dot/point) in OneNote notebook names like
    "1.1 page"
    "1.3 page"

    You can create such a notebook name, but it is displayes as "1"
    (= everythink after the first dot is cutted)

    Seems to be a bug since such notebook names are **allowed** and correclty displayed in
    1) Win10: OneNote 2016: yes
    2) Win10: App.OneNote: yes
    3) Win10: OneDrive in WindowsExplorer: yes
    4) Office 365 (Online) Sharepoint (Teamwebsite): yes

    # Summary
    So when using two notebook names like "1.1 Private" and "1.2 Work", then in iOS.OneDrive you see it…

  9. Microsoft DELETED the suggestion for returning to the previous Onedrive PDF annotation

    The post of over 1000 votes requesting that onedrive restore its original editing capabilities (notes, highlighter, pen layout, blue side toolbar) was deleted by Microsoft.

    There was a claim that the 'annotation experience' would be improved, but this never occurred.

    The app is still much worse than it was (went from a beautifully made app, to highly tedious to annotate PDFs).

  10. stuck at “setting things up” how could you be so stupid and irresponsible

    before the onedrive APP automatically upload the camera
    the onedrive APP will stupidly make clear the information of all the files in the whole onedrive(not only the files in the camera folder),and it will write the information in a database in the onedrive APP
    I have more than 100GB files in the onedrive.
    The consequence is the iOS onedrive APP cannot make clear the information of all the files. So it stuck at "Setting things up", and it has written more than 3GB date to the database aforementioned.
    and if you use an empty onedrive, you will find it can…

  12. Automatic Document Scanning

    Like so many other applications out there (Evernote and Scanner Pro come to mind). One Drive document scanning should be AUTOMATIC. The app should find the edges of the document to be scanned, the app should steady the image and the app should automatically scan document. Of course this automatic feature should be able to be changed to be a manual scan if users want. First thing that needs to be done is work on the algorithm that finds the document edges because it really does not work very well as of this date (August 2019). Currently I am using…

  13. Document editing

    Editing documents with apple pen with a recent update does not include the option of inserting arrows, text boxes, shapes. This was very useful, i do not understand why they would take it out of the app.
