  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.

    • For the love of God just fix PDF export after 4+ years

      So many people have asked for this, so many times. If you just fix this, you can shut the feedback forum - there's nothing else.

        • PDF Export on Mac and IOS

          When exporting form onenote on windows the exported pdf has the current paper style I chose, on IOS and Mac we are getting no paper style.

          in addition, when exporting from windows the resolution is great like it is looks like in the app on 100% view, on the Mac and iOS the proportions are all wrong it looks like it is exporting in on 60% zoom and some drawing and writings looks out of proportion.

          For me those two problems are critical for the day to day use.

          • Please support OneNote for Mac on the current plus 2 previous macOS operating systems

            https://support.office.com/article/upgrade-your-macos-to-access-new-office-365-for-mac-features-f6efc6b6-90f8-4e69-82dd-d0de32a111aa

            There is some indication that Office for Mac 2019 will only support the latest current release of macOS plus the previous operating system. This is a formal request from an Enterprise admin to have Microsoft provide support for the current macOS operating system plus the two previous operating systems.

            Apple has been absolutely horrendous in documenting and providing the appropriate management tools to deal with major restrictions they've been adding to macOS. This makes it much more difficult to deploy the latest macOS release on day 1. As an example, the majority of our users are still on macOS…

              • 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.

                  • Exporting OneNote Files

                    I have two OneDrive accounts - one for school and one for personal use. I recently decided to transfer some from school to my personal account so that I do not lose them when I graduate. I have been looking for a way to do this on my MacBook but have not yet found something that works. It would be nice to have a feature allowing either transferring of files between OneDrive accounts (not just sharing - but transferring) or the ability to download a OneNote file to be saved locally on your computer so that it can be uploaded…

                      Add support for themes in OneNote for Mac. Would be nice that this feature would be supported in Mac as well (now its limited to Windows version only afaik).

                        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.

                        • 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.

                            Exporting OneNote for Mac notes to Word would add so much flexibility to the OneNote application...and to the Office "ecosystem" in general.

                              • voice recording and note taking simultaneously

                                It is essential that users are able to record (say a meeting) and take notes at the same time and have the audio file imbedded in the note. An additional feature would be the ability to connect from a timestamp perspective the notes taken match with the recording.

                                  • OneNote for Mac needs to allow local copies of notebooks

                                    I am really annoyed about this. I just switched from Windows to Mac, and do to corporate policy, I cannot use OneNote without this feature. Microsoft, I know that you are intentionally withholding this feature. I feel ****** at Microsoft and betrayed.

                                      This is very uncomfortable and does not allow you to work with OneNote on the Mac, iOS and Android.
