  5. It does not work properly any more

    The program adds any new documents to the previous file. There is no way to remove unwanted pages.

  6. very slow turn around implementing ideas

    There was a great idea that should have been the core of office lens from day one that was submitted in April of 2015 that is still not “done”. That being that users can specify the folder that receipts, etc can be saved to and having the option to rename for scan.

    My suggestion is that Microsoft and partners do a much better job of listening to its customers and implement requests in a reasonable time. Five years is not reasonable!

  9. When in scanning mode, hide the bar with other pictures

    When in scanning mode, hide the bar with other pictures or make it a setting in settings.

    I cannot see all of my scan now when close to a picture.

  13. Bring back capture from photo library

    Sometimes we have captured text in a photo and wish to perform OCR on it. Office Lens was capable of this originally but now it is not. WHY?

  14. The app goes around in circles

    After taking a photo of a document, you click done, then choose to export the photo. After it exports it returns to the screen to click done again which takes you to the export screen and this continues. The last photo is always kept the next time I go to use the app so I need to delete it otherwise I get duplicate copies. The path/process is not set up to finish properly! It’s very frustrating

  17. Option To Disable OCR

    Provide a settings or document specific option to disable OCR when saving to PDF. For technical and mixed language documents OCR is not great (and when medical errors could prove disastrous). But PDF format (image) is often preferable to e.g. save to "Photos". So on occasions saving scanned document without it carrying out OCR is crucial.

  19. Delete

    Please make a function to delete all files. They are taking up too much space and waste of time to delete individually. Thanks
