    • 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.

      • 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.

          • Please have an auto save feature

            It's too cumbersome to have to manually save every single time when I use the app, I just its be to one note or one drive automatically

            • Select onedrive folder

              Would like to save to an existing Onedrive folder of my choice rather than default to Office Lens folder.

              • Please add black and white enhancement option.

                I see no obvious enhancement of the image taken. Autocrop works pretty well btw.

                            • Save Images to "Office Lens" album instead of the "Camera roll" album

                              Currently the temporary images and final good images are stored in the "Camera roll" album folder. This ruins the Photos App's Live Tile. It would be really great if a new album called "Office Lens" created and used for this purpose.

                                Would be nice if we can set a default save location and just tap on save icon without having to tap the tick mark every time

                                    • Rotate images

                                      Ability to rotate images, to override the terrible auto-orientation.

                                      This feature was recently announced for iOS and Android versions, but not Windows Phone 8+.

                                      I'm embarrassed to be requesting this.

                                      • multiple pdf

                                        It would be nice to be able to add multiple pages to PDFs

                                        • Add a Receipt scanning mode

                                          Please add a receipt scanning mode, so I can scan the receipts of any purchases.

                                          You should process this new information, generating a table or something.
