Not sync with OneDrive

Use to be able to save the PDF directly to my OneDrive.

The screen keeps flashing between office account sign-in page and office lens Export To page, without being able to log in successfully.

It’s inconvenient if the sync fails. Getting annoying.

Great app

Been using this for a few years. They fixed all the earlier bugs and this thing is amazing now!

Developer Response ,

Thank you for using Microsoft Lens. Let us try to address each of your concerns:
While Lens tries its best to accurately crop the documents, sometimes the result might not be the one that you want. For this, you have the option of reviewing and adjusting the borders after each scan. If this is not already turned on, then you can turn it on by tapping on 'crop' button in edit screen, and turning on 'Let me adjust border after each scan' on the top right.
We monitor crashes regularly and working towards resolving the ones which occur frequently for most users.
We've taken your feedback on having too many options in the upload section and shall work towards it.

Please feel free to drop us a note at if you've further concerns and we shall address those swiftly.
