  1. Annotating Protected Pdfs

    Until very recently, I was able to annotate and highlight text on my protected pdfs (ex: GRE study guide) through one drive. It was a great functionality for me because it increased the productivity of the device for me. I have no intention of unlawful use of that pdf. Now all of the sudden that functionality has been disabled. See the attached screenshot where I have previously highlighted text on the pdf but now it says that I don't have the permission to edit the file. All I want to do is highlight and annotate. please have this functionality back…

    • The pdf markup app. Please bring back the old version asap

      Where to begin ?
      The new markup function gets an F. Please bring back the old tool bar — worked beautifully
      Literally everything about it is step backwards. Really have to question the aptitude of the team that would take such a step.

      Just inserted a comment box into a pdf — the font size is probably 2-3 and no way to adjust — just elementary stuff. It’s as if the designers have never marked up a document

      Seems the writing line has been adjusted to at least bring up to average. Why not make it better than average? Make…

      • Problem with animated GIFs appearing upside down.

        I've had a recent issue with animated GIFs flipping upside down once they start playing (on iPhone SE and XS, iOS 12.1). After using the Report A Problem link on the app and trying all the suggestions (restarting phone, logging out, clearing cache, re-installing app, etc.), I was advised to post it on here. Thanks!

          • Videos must be able to playback in background

            Especially considering a lot of people have music in video format.

              When uploading a document received via email etc (eg: Bank Statements Received), I would like to be given the opportunity then and there to easily change the name.

              In other words: I receive an email from the bank with a PDF statement. The automated name given by the bank for the pdf statement is “fg122gh”. When uploading it to my OneDrive folder called “Bank Statements”, I’d like to be given the option to change the name to “November 2018” at that point and not have to find the file again and then rename it.

              Thank you
              Gavin

                • Don’t move!!

                  Hello,

                  I love reading PDF files in OneDrive app. However, when I touch the screen while reading, the blue bar shows up and change the scope the PDF file shown on the screen. In another word, showing up the blue bar changes the line where I was reading. This is confusing and sometimes I miss where I was reading.

                  I would really appreciate it if you could fix this so that I can comfortably read PDF files in OneDrive. Thank you.

                          • Move O365 Group Files from Ellipses

                            It appears that you can move a file on your Personal OneDrive via the Ellipses but not a file in an O365 group (as a member/owner). Currently to move a file located in an O365 group, you have to hold the file down, swipe navigate the folders and then drop it.

                            Can you please add the Move Ellipses button to O365 Files.

                              • View only the annotated or bookmarked pages in PDF

                                These new versions have removed the option to view only the annotated or bookmarked pages in a PDF file. It was a great solution for books with over 600 pages like college books and now I have to manually scroll looking for the page I annotated. An app should become smarter with updates and help people in their daily life, not the opposite.

                                      Please please please can you update the OneDrive app to also upload live photos. It only takes the still version and loses the video associated with it. Not much use as a cloud back up tool if I can’t upload all my files!!

                                        • Rename a file while saving to OneDrive

                                          So, here's my issue - why can't you rename a file when you are saving it to onedrive?? Box allows this and it is an awesome feature! Right now, when I save an attachment from outlook mobile, I go to save to one drive. Then, I open the app (after saving said file) and have to remember to immediately rename it. It would be so much better if I could skip this step and simply rename the file whilst saving it.

                                          Please let me know if this is currently possible, or if it will be incorporated in an update soon.
