  4. Auto select the entire imported image, don't crop it.

    When I import an image, it is automatically cropped. I then have to go and manually change the page dimensions. Given me the option to automatically import an image and have the entire image selected not cropped.

  5. Direct integration into Onenote

    Rather than having to swap between apps and wait for upload -download have lens functionality directly integrated into Onenote would be great.

  6. Add OCR

    Add OCR, so whenever you export the picture, you can directly edit it, only if it is a document however.

  11. Better file name options in Save dialog

    It's needlessly painful to delete the default filename and enter one of my choosing. Can I have a single-touch option to use the default filename or begin typing a custom name? Or can that choice be set in advance as a default option?

  13. *** 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)

  16. Needs to be much faster if it is to be used for importing pictures to onenote on the fly during lectures.

    I want a single click to get the picture directly to onenote. Then I want direct access to the office lens file in onenote. . This would make this flow seamless and very useful

  18. Detect white space and make it white instead of having a document scanned with a yellowish tint based on lighting

    When you take a picture of a white paper under yellow light the scan comes out with a yellow tint. Office lens should be able to automatically adjust for that and make the background white instead of yellow.

  19. Needs support for editing from within the default Photos iOS app using native "extensions" menu.

    So it is possible to edit documents without leaving built-in app.
