    • 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! :-)

        • 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.

          • Tabs back on top

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

            • 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 the Mac version as powerful as the Windows version!

                Why don't you get that you're a software company.

                • Please, please, please allow us to collapse subpages like you can in the Windows version

                  As above. You wouldn't believe how much better this single feature would make the Mac version of the product.

                  • 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.

                    • 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.

                      • Allow users to change notebook color

                        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.

                            • Change the new colour - seriously my eyes

                              The new ultra bright purple is completely unsuitable for a productivity app, fine for a call to action button, but for a piece of software that for long periods by many, it's now painful to use because the new colour is far to bright and distracting.

                              • Give option to work offline all the time

                                Allow the option to never use online sync. I do not want to have my OneNote online, ever.
                                This is possible on my daughter's Windows laptop, but not on my MacBook, even though I paid for the product. Why?
                                Should be my choice whether to use online or not. I don't like being forced to go online... to do a simple thing like add a notebook. Really?
                                I want to keep my stuff on MY laptop and MY backup system, not anywhere else.

                                  • Keywords (called Tagging in Evernote)

                                    OneNote already has something they call "Tags" which is fundamentally different from what people requesting Tags mean.

                                    I think OneNotes Tags are very cool and they are worth keeping.

                                    However absolutely missing is the ability to add keywords that can be searched and provide virtual groupings of items over and above the very limited and restrictive Notebook / Section paradigm.

                                    The OneNote team needs to get over this myopic approach that is based on a physical object and embrace the power available in the electronic version to have virtualized related objects that can be brought together through searches.

                                    Having a…

                                    • Make tab position optional

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

                                      • "Syncing..." in title bar is annoying

                                        With the recent update, you now see "Syncing..." almost blinking at you while you are typing. This is extremely annoying and distracting. Especially if you collaborating on a page. There needs to be a much more subtle way of showing that a sync is in progress. Quite honestly, I don't care if it is syncing. I want OneNote to give me confidence that I can just type and it will take care of capturing and syncing my notes.

                                          Please add sort capability for the Mac! Being able to sort notes by date and alphabetically would greatly improve the program's usability.
