  2. Ink

    The Apple Pencil ink is too thick on the PDF editor. Please make smoother cleaner ink for Apple Pencil. Microsoft Word, Onenote etc. has much finer smoother ink please make adjustments!

  4. Go to specific page

    I.e. Be able to jump to page 230 without having to scroll there manually.

  5. Offline Files

    It would be awesome to be able to store an entire file (and all it's contents) on a device for offline access, and that any changes made would be automatically synced. This would allow users instant access with faster loading, even if internet is not available.

  6. PDF Viewer Enhancement - Ability to Snip an Area

    The PDF viewer built into OneDrive on iOS is already pretty handy but one feature that would help especially when working with those pesky PDF files that contain images is a feature similar to Windows Snipping Tool.

    I utilize oneNote as well and appreciate the ability to snip a part out of a PDF and add it to my notebook. Currently I have to mark the PDF then open it on my PC to do this same task.

  7. Pause a file that uploads

    You should give us the option to pause an upload so that we can choose which files are more important and should be uploaded first. I'm talking about the camera uploading where Onedrive just finds new files and uploads them in order. For example now my Onedrive tries to upload 5 videos and it takes about a day to do it whereas it could have uploaded all the photos first which are more important to me.

  8. Drop shadow size

    The drop shadow effect used is too big, it would look a lot more clean if you used a smaller one.

  9. Zoom In Window For Annotating

    Hi,

    Could we get a zooming in window option for annotating? If you try writing in directly it can look bad but when there is a zoom in window option it allows for more precise writing and you don't have to zoom in the entire page. You can take a look at the app called GoodNotes which implements this idea perfectly, but has horrible folder organization. Also, a different style of writing would be good as well. The current style looks too much like I'm using an old fashioned pen as it varies in thickness when writing. Can we just…

  11. Treat shared folders just like regular folders on Mobile

    In the iOS mobile app, currently shared folder live under a different tab at the bottom of the app. It's not clear why they are treaded differently. One issue this causes, is that when I create a new PDF from a different app and try to save to my OneDrive, I can only see my folders. I'm unable to save into my shared folders.

    Specifically, I'm using TurboScan and trying to save my scans into a shared folder. Only my folders appear when I select to save to OneDrive.

  15. iOS App takes too long to "refresh" a folder and display new files

    For whatever reason iOS App doesn't show files recently added. So if you're waiting for some file to show, you need to go to the web. And there is no way to force a refresh.

  16. Show the Title View of the file you are viewing in the Navigation Bar

    Now we have to go to Details to see the file name.

    Why only folders show the name there?

  17. home wifi auto upload instead of location tracking on

    it will be much better to let user choose when and where to upload the photos, I don't mind to keep open one drive as soon as it detect I'm using home wifi or I'm charging in home wifi condition so it will start upload

  19. Progress bar/upload status on picture upload folder?

    Overall, I really like this app. Just like my iPhone, it just works, except when it doesn't. However, one thing that bugs me is that when I go to "pictures" -> camera uploads; it tells me that my pictures are uploaded and up to date, yet they are nowhere to be found.

    What I have to do on occasion is go to "photos" and select "camera upload" and then my pictures start uploading, but sometimes when I don't do anything my pictures will upload automatically. I do have the app set to automatically upload.

    What I would like to see…
