      • Automatically save to Dropbox

        Most pictures will automatically go to my camera uploads in Dropbox, but these do not. Would be nice if they automatically saved (without me having to name them) and if they saved to a location that Dropbox could pick them up automatically.

              “the user credentials are needed to obtain access token.Please call the non-silent acquireTokenWithResource methods.” Why do I get this message every time I try to use the app? It’s been happening since the last update.

                  Office lens converting a business card to a contact file should be a direct link to a CRM system. This would be a big deal.

                            • 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.

                                    • Export files when offline

                                      Would be good to have the possibility to save a document as pdf also offline. By now seems it is possible to save/export a file only if you are connected to internet. I think this is a big limitation, in case you are temporarly without internet.

                                      • Fix authentication error for Office Lens.

                                        Saving an image is stuck because of an authentication error. Put in the code for work account and now it just spins. Rebooting or relaunching finds the image still there. Can't figure out what the problem is. Just stuck.
