    I use OneNote for research so a page can be rather long with many different objects.
    When I open a note like that on any Android device they sometimes turn out jumbled. The first ten or so percent of an object appears on top of the preceding object making both unintelligible.
    When I then check it again in ON 2013 it looks (most of the time) normal. There are no settings available in the Android version of ON so I have no idea how to rectigy this.

    I'd advice you to message the Android OneNote team

    Where do you find them? There is nothing in the app that I can see.

    Nice, appreciated it. Thought feedback were for crash reports, silly me. But I don't like writing long explanatory texts on a soft keyboard anyway.

    The email would be nice as you can clip illustrations of your issues. Just ensure you give them your device name, app version and Android version

    Kumabjorn, I'm having the same issues; was about to start a new thread then found yours! Would love to hear how your inquiries with MS go. As of now, I can't really consider ON for Android compatible with ON for Windows. I'm actually finding that inking in Evernote on Android coordinates better with the PC version, though I much prefer ON as the platform. I would write-in to them too, but I've only tried it once or twice and just gave up - have no examples to show.

    Good luck, and keep us posted!

    You don't need visual illustrations. If you can explain it to them. They can at least know that few people are experiencing it.

    I don't use OneNote they much on my Note 8. Rarely I'd grab it to take serious notes on it, so I haven't experienced your issues.

    The response I received is that "this is a known problem" I take that as an implication that they are working on a solution.

    Thanks. Done.
    Same. Question is: does MS prefer ON for Android to succeed or fail? Poor compatibility w/Android = gotta buy Windows tablet.
