  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  7. Have an option to make scans black and white

    When you scan a document to PDF it retains the doc colour, even on black and white docs you sometimes get a brown hue on the scan. I would like the option to change the scan to grey scale or black and white if i do not like the colour option. The whiteboard scan gives a great black and white scan

  8. Straighten curved (bent) pages

    Office Lens would be even better if it could straighten photos of bent pages, e.g. a photo of a page from a thick book.

  14. *** not to onenote & other storage location ***

    put OneNote as an option (instead of always active) and always save cropped pictures to photos but with the choice of a storage location (e.g. not in camera roll but office lens folder)

  19. Multi-page PDF on Windows Mobile

    Am I just imagining it or has multi page pdf creation disappeared from Windows Mobile?

    When I scan multiple times it just creates separate jpegs.

    What on Earth happened to being able to scan in multi page documents into a PDF?
