  1. View full image in preview on Mac

    I use Onedrive on a Mac running Mac OS Catalina.

    When I want to preview my images I simply hit the space bar with the file selected. The preview pops up. To cancel the preview I simply hit ESC and I'm back to my files view. I'm a pro photographer so do a lot of viewing and previewing of my images on file.

    With the images stored on my Mac hard drive I get to see the entire image in preview.

    For images saved on OneDrive I only get to see half the image. See my attached file.

    I am…

  2. OneDrive基本設定において

    Dockアイコンを隠すオプションのチェックボックスをオンにしても、アイコンが消えず、設定が反映されない場合がある。

    対処法。チェックを入れ基本設定のタブを全て順番に表示して、最後に窓を閉じると有効になりました。

  3. Ability to chose which folders I want to sync before I have to sync everything?

    I have OneDrive with 1000s of folders

    I want to install ONEDRIVE on my Mac and have ONLY 2 of those folders synced to my Mac.
    When I install ONEDRIVE, it syncs EVERYTHING, before I chose the only 2 folders I really want to sync
    When I chose PAUSE SYNC to give myself time to chose the 2 folders I want, the Setting Menu Options are deactivated (!)
    When I try to chose the folders while Syncing it tells me WAIT UNTIL SYNC IS COMPLETELY FINISHED to make your choice…..

    Ideally, the app should ask which folders to SYNC at…

  4. Allow users to sign in

    Using the latest (as of this writing) OneDrive client on Mac, attempting to sign-in with my organization's Office 365 credentials tells me that the account doesn't exist. However, opening the Office 365 Portal in a web-browser, then using the link to open OneDrive results in a successful sign-in to the desktop client.

    Signing in to OneDrive seems like elementary functionality. Might be a good idea to enable that.

    It seems in previous versions, the language in the desktop client specifically said "Sign In with a Microsoft Account", and it has recently been changed to "Sign in to OneDrive" or something…

  5. Stop taking up internal Mac SSD disc space (clicked free up space option - does nothing)

    I had to remove the syncing folder months ago as it was utterly wrecking havoc on my computer by duplicating files and even though I clicked free up space (i.e. remove the files from my computer and keep them accessible via the onedrive cloud sharing folder), the files remained on my computer taking up internal disc space. This is all over blogs I've read concerning the same problem. I've now had to purchase my own cloud service so that I can back up and sync properly without the inconvenience of Microsoft and Apple not agreeing on various apps and software…

  7. OneDrive folders/files .onedriveignore (like .gitignore)

    It will be a pleasant experienced if OneDrive team could provide feature such as .gitignore for ignoring files or folders that user won't to backup or maybe additional question asking user to backup new discovered folder or not. For example working with nodejs project require you to install node package which will generate nodemodules folder. It's not necessarily needed to include it in backup, since it have very big size but user want to sync all his Project folder across all his devices, besides he's still using git for code change tracker.

  8. Just spent over 2 hours trying to fix sync issues between OneDrive SharePoint and my Computer

    This is not an idea, just a complain of how much time you're making us loose.
    I juts spent over 2 hours with Microsoft tech support. every-time we tried to resync my folder, it created new ones, connected to old one or did nothing.
    Everything is so confusing once you are looking at multiple instances of the same folder. Please make your tool more RELIABLE, more user-friendly, and clearer. And stop wasting our time.
    Now I have to go manually into at least 6 folders to make sure all my files are actually back-up, it will take another couple of…

  10. Allow a space at the beginning and/or end of file names.

    File names with a <space> at the beginning or end are not allowed and will not sync. Is there a way to remove this restriction? I have a large library of files that were, unfortunately, named like this by another user. I can't rename them as they are referenced by a number of documents. It seems like there is some issue with this on Windows but MacOS allows the spaces.

  14. Remove size limit on uploaded files

    In these times of remote work and relationships, I think having the freedom to upload any file regardless of their size is a must! Please remove size limit on uploaded files!

  16. Bug report: manually saving

    Sometimes, when editing a file on Mac OS, when I have AutoSave off, when I try to manually save the file, the app tells me mistakenly I must either save a copy or discard my changes. If I quit OneDrive from the Mac OS "taskbar," this problem does not happen. Please fix it.

  18. OneDrive on Mac: can't resize the window

    Why it is no longer possible to maximize the size of the OnDrive window on a Mac.
    This blocks the management of folders to be synchronized if, however, the folder names are long

  20. Decide what folders to synchronize with your local computer

    As of now it is not possible to decide not to sync a specific folder that already resides on the OneDrive when setting up Mac OneDrive client, let's say you have a huge folder that you don't want to sync. This will start syncing now until you are able to untick it in settings.
