  1. OCR not working?

    OCR is either not working or there is some step I am missing. I was under impression that One Lens auto-OCRs. I saved a doc to standard and PDF, and it can't find words in either.

  2. 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

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  9. Choose one note location

  18. 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.

  20. Default Filter Setting

    Have option to default filter of choice instead of always set to Auto. When scanning a multi page doc, I have to apply the b/w filter after every page.
