  4. 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

  6. 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.

  7. Offline saving

    Let it save Office documents OFFLINE, because neither do I use OneDrive, nor I have a fancy data plan.

  8. *** 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)

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

  14. black and white settings.

    Be able to adjust black/white/grey levels to eliminate any grey shading in the image(similar to highlight and shadow adjustment in adobe lightroom). Useful for text and schematic diagrams.
