  1. Allow PDFs to be highlighted and saved

    I would like to be able to do all of my research on one platform. I can save PDFs but I can't highlight on OneDrive. Now I have to keep download the file to my computer to edit and then resave it to OneDrive. And then delete the old version. It would be great if I could make these small changes and then save it all on OneDrive.

  2. I suggest you remove the first page of Login on onedrive.com,

    It doesn't really make sense to ask users to type their Microsoft address then direct them to a normal login page not different than the other online services. Even though the first page is really nice looking, it's a unnecessary step... If you want to keep it add the option to type also the password there and go directly to OneDrive after that

  3. utilise the Geotagging to sort photos into folders.

    Just like in the Lumia storyteller app that sorts your photos into folders based on where it was shot. it would be really helpful to get all your photos under control.
    I can see OneDrive knows where it was shot its just not very intelligent when it comes to managing all the photos you take.
    Microsoft could you come up with some way to achieve this?
    (and of course allow that Geotagged folder to be renamed if need be)

  4. Use a Cryptografic way of store Files

    Use a Cryptografic way of store Files so without your key it should not mount "onedrive drive"
    it would help in case of a lost memory card/notebook

  6. Open office documents with a size of max 100MB

    Allow office online to open files upto the size of 100MB (maybe in wifi connection or 3G)

    Excel, Powerpoint can easily grow beyond 50MB with charts and images

  7. Allow comments on shared folder/files and send notification once the comment is added

    Allow comments on shared folder/files and send notification once the comment is added. This feature was available before. It's very important for team project and collaboration.

  8. Add native editors for code files

    Currently onedrive has native support for code files such as CSS, JavaScript and c#. Give it the enormously powerful ability to edit many other file types such as .java and .ml etc. make it as powerful at opening different file types as text editor on windows or notepad++. Build this functionality into the mobile apps. It would be killer if I could open, view java or c++ code directly through my onedrive app on my mobile device.

  9. Retirar a opção baixar quando compartilhamos somente para visualização

    Não existe motivos para ter a opção baixar quando compartilhamos somente para visualização, esta opção baixar derruba completamente o conceito somente para visualização, se já escolhemos somente para visualização é porque não queremos que o destinatário baixe o conteúdo, sugiro a retirada da opção baixar.

  10. Additional Video Playback Support

    It would be nice if OneDrive supported more video containers/codecs. More specifically MKV container. It's not widely used by companies but I'm sure there is a myriad of OneDrive users who do have content in those formats. It's a feature that Google Drive Supports

  11. Grant services/apps access only to specific folders

    Every time services/apps ask me to grant OneDrive access, I do not want to do that because some privacy data is stored and I do not want to share it with other services/apps. If I can grant the access to services/apps on specified folders but not all folders, it will be very security.

  12. Mix of selective sync and smart files

    Smart Files are awesome and needs to come back... But I also believe selective sync needs to also stay.

    User Case:
    I have all my pictures on onedrive. all 1.5TB of it... I want all my pictures visible in file explorer, but not downloaded... smart files work here.

    I want to archive old data... forever. but I don't want it synced, or require it to show in file explorer.... selective sync works here. It would be awesome if there was a "drop" location in file explorer where I could drop files to move it to my "vault / archive" on…

  14. Fix the Interface

    The blue boxes for folders look ugly, and there is a ridiculous amount of white space above the folder names in the list view. Additionally, the Size and Sharing columns completely disappear when using the webpage on just one half of the screen, which is a problem that also extends to the whole interface. The website fails to adjust to certain screen sizes and aspect ratios, instead creating scroll bars within the page (the left menu bar eventually creates its own scroll bar) and removing information.

  15. Image editor

    Just some basic features to start off. Crop. lighten and darken. Red Eye reduction in the future. Maybe zoom in and out with the scroll wheel of the mouse too?

  18. Fix size metadata bug

    When uploading certain PNG files the size is incorrectly reported on the OneDrive website and in the Photo object returned by the REST API. This can be reproduced using the following PNG file: http://www2.zippyshare.com/v/11270772/file.html

  19. Add more ooption in "save as" in Office & support for RTF

    Please, add in Office Online in OneDrive more option in "save as" (e.g. option to covert and/or downloading Word's file as ODT, RTF -- and ODT, RTF as DOCX).

    And, very important, add in Word online suport to RTF file! Today I try to open RTF in Word online, and I can't. :( Support for RTF is a very important.

  20. Ugly black bar at the top

    Recent UI updates to OneDrive.com came with a very ugly, huge alien black bar at the top. It doesn't fit with the rest of the page and muted tones at all. I figured I'd get used to it but it still looks like something out of 1997, just a "wtf?" decision by the UI team. Makes me wish there was an alternative without this amateur lapse in design judgement, and you know, there is. Your entire competition. I just wouldn't want to switch over something as nitpicky as this, I'd like the whole UI to live up to it's level.
