        Rename is just necessary, simple, annoying not to have, crippling, and arrogant of MS not to fix.

        Documents are right side up in save all view then upside down of sideways in the PDF.

        Is there a person to address these issues instead of this annoying chat? Feels like comments go into a black hole.

        This is such a cool product... I would love to be able to use it....

        I want to save a document to a PDF after taking notes... or other... then get into a system...

        everytime I save it to PDF.. rotates image and can't rotate it back....

        saving to word.. is a nightmare...

        and emailing just sends me pictures.... not an attachment...

        Goal: Be able to take picture with IOS device of multiple pages, have them save to PDF, then email....

        In WM10, the image still flips when saved as PDF or Word, the problem was reported about 2 years ago and it still persists !. Alas, its such a shame !.

        iOS 9.3.1 Office Lens 1.3

        Document image rotates on export to PDF.

        The image displays in correct orientation in Save All view.

        Why can I not do this on my brand new Windows Mobile 950XL? I bought it specifically so that I would have the very best Microsoft experience. Doesn't make sense that the competition handsets have feature sets that WM10 doesn't have....

        ...the feature has been completed! But not for WINDOWS PHONE users? My god...

        Definitely helpful. This saves a lot of post processing time if the orientation can be locked!!

      • Jack commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        If the portrait orientation is locked on iPhone, Office Lens ignores that option and adjusts orientation as the phone is tilted or rotated. This results in more time spent in post processing.

        Can Office Lens lock it's orientation based on orientation as set on the phone? Many thanks!!

        Stop auto rotating the picture. When I take a picture and portrait should stay in portrait and not flip upside down or sideways.

        The App should contain the option to scan more than one document. Also should include the option to rotate the documents.

        Rename is really important. I have a onedrive folder full of unintelligible file names that all look the same when ellided!

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        This is a great app, except every time I convert a scan to PDF it flips it upside down! PLEASE FIX!!!!

        Rotate picture ability. Easier way to cut and resize picture. Ability to detect multiple receipts at one time, even if size are different, able to zoom in and out vs having to physically move the iPhone, being able to store and email as PDF. Being able to create a single document with multiple pictures taken.

        If the iPhone screen rotation is locked then Office lens should capture images in the default Potrait orientation. Sometimes I need to hold my phone at an angle rather than parallel to the page and the orientation on the phone flips to landscape which is not expected and annoying at worse. Either have a setting in the app to lock orientation or honour the iPhone rotation lock.
