  1. Paste is no longer working!

    I can no longer use OneNote on my Mac. Every time I try to paste my student's homework into a new page it says "wait" and then I get the color wheel. Eventually I have to do a force quit just to get out of the program. Whatever ya'll did really messed things up for me. Good bye.

    • PAGE SIZE OPTION!!

      You really need to add the same options that the PC version has. Not knowing where one page ends and the next start is a huge pain when you wanting to print things on one page!.

      • Put the tabs back on the TOP. Be able to PRINT, CONVERT to .doc or .pdf. Be able to MERGE cells. Be able to HIDE the left sidebar.

        Basically the title! We need to have a version the same plus better than windows. So unfair.
        Put the tabs back on the TOP.
        Be able to PRINT, CONVERT to .doc or .pdf.
        Be able to MERGE cells.
        Be able to HIDE the left sidebar.
        Have the SAME PLUS MORE features like OneNote for Windows.
        Thanks! :-)

        • Add Touch Bar Support for OneNote for Mac

          Like you did with Word, Excel, and Outlook, please add formatting tools in the Touch Bar in support of the 2016 MacBook Pro with Touch Bar.

          • Make tab position optional

            Make tab position an option to be horizontal instead of vertical. Why did this change?

            • Tabs

              I hate the new changes to OneNote for Mac. I like the tabs at the top and the lists on the right and left. That was the ONLY reason I chose One Note over Evernote. Now, there's no reason to stay with OneNote. It's too much clicking and adjusting the panes to view my folders and files. Plus, English speakers work from the left to the right. I don't want all the space on the left side of my screen to be sucked up by file lists. Poor, poor decision Microsoft. I wish, for once, you would leave well enough…

              • Put back tabs on top

                I like the tabs at the top not on the side taking up so much space. Please don't change what works and bring back the original look!

                • Tabs back on top

                  Please make a way to put tabs back on top. This pane view is like 1990's email.

                    • screen clipper. Bring this back

                      I use this every day several times a day on PC version. It really is about the only thing that is superior to Evernote.

                      Please extend this to Mac.

                      • Don't require MS OneDrive for OneNote on Mac

                        Ability to map to MS OneDrive is allowed or needed, but not required

                        It would be nice to allow to map to other cloud services where people or teams can host or share a *.one file

                        • Please, for the love of God, add alphabetical organization of notes!

                          How is this not a feature yet? Actually, no, it's not even a feature - it's UX 101. Alphabetical organization (or really any type of sorting) for notes is a must. Add. It.

                          There needs to be ways to sort through your notes and most users name their notes in a way that would be easy to navigate (like a date before the name).

                          This app is useless if you can't sort through your hundreds of notes. If I wasn't forced to use OneNote I'd be back with Evernote in heartbeat just for better sorting.

                          • search for tags

                            Need equivalent search system to Windows version. Being unable to search on tags makes the Mac version half as usable. What good are notes if you can't find the information when you need it?

                            Not looking for OS level tagging or fancy tag structures as in the other requests posted here, just want useable, equivalent features.

                                  • Section tabs back up top!

                                    What's with this new look? Put section tabs back up top. With them on the side, it takes up too much space on the width of the screen. Forces me to reduce my viewing area. Also, now onenote won't sync.

                                        • Add support for local OneNote notebooks

                                          Without local notebooks Onenote is useless. I will not use cloud storage, it is my data! If no local storage, i will not use Onenote. That simple.
                                          Who is the customer MS or the people buying it?
