  1. 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! :-)

    • 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…

      • Make tab position optional

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

        • Tabs back on top

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

              • 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?

                          • 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

                                I know that users can pick a notebook color when they create one, but it would be nice to be able to change the color of a notebook once it exists if a user decides that they want a different color for their already existing notebook.

                                • 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.

                                  • Add a "File Printout" option in OneNote for Mac

                                    I purchased the OneNote for Mac software (via Office 2016). It does not seem to include the command to Insert a "File Printout" only a "File Attachment". The option is still available at onenote.com, but I really prefer the layout of the software version of OneNote and would prefer to only use that rather than going back and forth for different functions.

                                    • Please leave the section tabs on the side...DO NOT REVERT!!

                                      I really love the section tabs on the side, apparently contrary to many users. Please DO NOT REVERT to putting the section tabs on the top.

                                      Now if you want to give the option of where to put section tabs (top or side) that seems like a reasonable compromise.

                                      I like that you have added the ability to change what shows up on the left (i.e. always see only the page, or page+section, or page+section+notebook) using the navigation panes option.

                                      • More detailed Preference Options, bring the tabs back to the top!

                                        Please give us more preference options similar to Windows. It is pitifully sparse. (Turning off and on smart copy/paste). I preferred having the notebooks as a drop down (+) and having the sections as tabs across the top (as it is in Windows!) and with pages on the right. We really need to be given more preferences and options to be able to customize the One Note experience to the user.

                                        • un-brake the new layout please.

                                          I want my sections out of the way and I want my pages to take up less space ànd I want to not see my notebooks all of the time unless I collapse them. THE NEW LAYOUT IS COUNTERPRODUCTIVE AND I HATE IT. And yes, I needed to shout it. Even if you don't read this and if you read it, you don't even care.
