I've recently went paper free at work thanks to my employer encouraging the use of BYOD.

I'm using OneNote currently as it gives me the ability to search for key words, this is great for how I take notes!

My question is, if I haven't taken a note for a few minutes, when I first rest my hand on the iPad (Pro 9.7) the screen appears to very slightly change colour moving out from where my hand rests. I'd usually associate this with placing any sort of force onto a display.

I want to know if the force of my hand is causing the display to do this, or it's OneNote starting up the palm rejection?

I know the device is build to write and draw on, but is anyone worried by the force their hand produces on the screen?

The way i'm working now with taking notes on my iPad selfishly makes me enjoy my day better! Sad I know. But I get to use my device at work and I love that. I just want to make sure me resting my hand on the screen isn't going to destroy the device over time!

does it happen for any other app? do the same hand resting / moving on a white page on safari or a blank note in the stock Notes app and see if it happens there.

I use one note to take math notes at college. I often have it open for an hour and a half to an hour and 50 minutes at a time never really had an issue with the palm rejection or is it getting slow or anything. Really nice to be able to consolidate all of my books down to one iPad. Mine is a 12.9 inch.

I usually have a very strong writing grip and pressure on the page. I've consciously dial it back a little bit but I've not found any damage since having it from last November.

Really great for graphing and equations :)

Are you using the 9.7" pro? I have never seen this issue. You can try it on an ipad at an applestore--they have onenote on all the ipads

Yes I'm using the 9.7.

I'll have a look again tomorrow when at work. I can't remember seeing this when using Notability.
