  1. Export/Download Notebooks

    Please allow us to export/download/transfer notebooks to our personal computer or another account. I'm going to lose my notes because we have to switch accounts for storage and I can't transfer my notes.

      • 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!.

              • 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.

                  • 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.

                    • Allow local storage. I'll even pay for it!!!!

                      I can't use OneNote due to no local storage.

                      Why can't there be a paid option to store locally?

                      My work has issues with the cloud and I don't completely trust it either.

                      Given Microsoft's approach to data storage I don't trust them either now.

                      This is a ****** move by Microsoft.

                        • 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! :-)

                          • OneNote Design

                            Please go back to the former design of OneNote with the tabs on top versus the left side view. The left side view takes away too much space for the overall notes. There have been many complaints on this site and on Apple's site as a preference for Mac users that use OneNote.

                            • 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.

                                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!

                                • Bug: Search Result Text highlight remains inside and outside of OneNote

                                  Search Result text highlight remains sticky on-screen across applications and even onenote.

                                  Steps to reproduce:
                                  1. Search for any text that has a matching result in any notebooks.
                                  2. Observe the result to come-up as Highlighted with the text.
                                  3. Minimize OneNote
                                  4. Observe that the Highlighted search text remains on the screen across applications.
                                  5. Move the OneNote Application and observe that the Highlighted search text remains sticky.

                                  • Put the tabs back on the top

                                    The original OneNote looked more like a note book, even after an update I was still able to change the look of OneNote back to having the tabs on the top, but now I can't. I like the option of having the tabs on the top, the simpler layout made more sense. All I want is the option to have the tabs at the top again after choosing a notebook.

                                    • Make a [Ubuntu] Linux Version!

                                      Since Microsoft has already ported Office and OneNote 2016 to Mac, it's relatively trivial to change it up so it runs on Ubuntu LTS.

                                      It's a great app, and I would really advocate for it if it would actually run - which it doesn't even in wine.

                                      See it as an expansion of your potential customer audience - espechally when it comes to collab functions like SharePoint.
                                      Just because you have ported the client application to Linux it doesn't men People will stop wanting to buy Azure and hosted SharePoint Subscriptions.

                                      • TABS ON TOP!!!

                                        Here's a NEW idea... Put the tabs back on top or give the option. HATE tabs on the side is nowhere near intuitive...
