  1. OneNote for Mac needs to have all the features of the Windows version

    OneNote for Mac needs to have all the features of the Windows version.

    OneNote could replace my todo app. In fact it'd be the best todo app - I've used them all.

    But not until the Mac version is the same as the Windows version. So please update OneNote for Mac to match the Windows version.

    • We need dark theme for notes.

      Dark theme is supported in most of the apps. It would be better if you support the same.

        • Mac: 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.

            Hello
            I’s sorry to hear there are difficulties in getting the new tag search to appear. We are investigating this and I’ll let you know what is found out.

            Also, I want to let you know that the tag search may be hidden from your view depending on how your navigation pane settings were set. If you hid your navigation pane, [“View > Navigation Pane > Hide All”], the search button is not visible. For it to appear, you need to set you Navigation Pane View setting to either “Hide Section List” or “Show Sections and Pages” or use “Command +F” as someone on this forum suggested.

            I hope this helps. Keep the suggestions coming as we are reading each and every one.

            • Printing

              Why doesn't OneNote for Mac have the same printing capabilities as OneNote for PCs, Evernote, and Noteability. Makes OneNote useless for me as a student.

              • Synchronizing ToDo items with Outlook tasks should be supported

                As an Office 365 user, in order to not waste time linking Outlook tasks with OneNote notes, I want the possibility to create ToDo items in OneNote that are automatically synchronized with Outlook tasks.

                • Black background for OneNote

                  I would love the ability to set OneNote's screen with a black background and white or colored fonts. It would rest my eyes, notably when I access OneNote at night, both on the computer and the smartphone. It would be consistent with Windows 10's ability to display dark backgrounds, notably for emails.

                  • 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!.

                      • OneNote Importer for Mac loses Loses Note Titles

                        The community appreciates that OneNote Importer exists for Mac to migrate notes from Evernote to OneNote. However, Note Titles are completely missed -- I have several thousand notes and this happened for roughly half of my notes. Please fix this bug.

                          PLEASE...add the capability to sort pages by alphabetical order and/or by date for Onenote in ALL operating systems. This should be a feature of Onenote and NOT an add-in.

                            • Table formatting

                              Give OneNote for Mac the same rich level of Table formatting as is available in Word. Perhaps add a Table Ribbon element. Options such as border colour, style, weight; alternating row formats, vertical alignment, quick styles,sorting a table by a given column etc should all exist.

                                  • Allow Mac users to choose a Microsoft product with all its benefits

                                    Microsoft - please accept that making OneNote for Mac inferior to Windows version will not convert avid Mac users to Windows... it will just make us give up on OneNote... Discovered the programme having heard great things, only to find out several of the reasons I want it apply to the Mac version (PDF export, line spacing formatting, screen clipping, saving locally)... May give up, we are clearly not being listened too. Seems ridiculous as Word etc. for Mac works perfectly well

                                        • Leaving (or option to leave) the section tabs at the top on the page instead of on the side

                                          Of the new experimental features is the sections tabs moving to the side of the page instead of displaying at the top. This kills screen space as it takes a huge chunk or horizontal space for people who work with two windows side by side. If the feature is coming, please leave an option to revert back to displaying these tabs at the top of the notebook.
