  2. Email as PDF

    Would love the ability to email as of PDF instead of a JPG. I see when you use PDF it uploads it to convert and OCR, then you can email from there. Ability to email directly as an image PDF or do the OCR without uploading the image would be great.

  3. Save to existing OneNote page instead creating a new page each time

    If you export to OneNote, a new page is created. I would like to be able to add an image to an existing OneNote page.

  6. Import business card data into contacts

    Import business card data into Contacts, then have option to email the new contact your contact card.

  11. QR Code Reader

    Please add a QR Code and Barcode Scanner that shows details about the item or for business cards since it is called "Office" lens and add more interoperability with the other "Office" apps. It doesn't necessarily need to capture the barcode or qr code too but can scan it then have the option to read barcodes in a picture. Also, please do fix the apps in Windows Phone. Don't forget. It really is a very important OS. It's just that people are still blinded by iOS and Android.

  13. Zoom in when cropping

    Display above the touch point a zoomed in view of where the cropping point is being placed. See scanner pro app for example.

  15. Don't start the app with camera mode, but an overview page

    If you start the app, immediately the camera is activated. This is annoying. Would like the app to start with an overview page or scanned items.

  16. Export to SharePoint library

    Export directly to a sharepoint library. This would allow use of the document id feature which is not available in OneDrive

  17. OCR not working?

    OCR is either not working or there is some step I am missing. I was under impression that One Lens auto-OCRs. I saved a doc to standard and PDF, and it can't find words in either.

  20. Remove page limit

    You can currently only append 10 images to each other in Lens. Please remove this limit. This would be good when you're trying to make PDFs.
