  1. local storage on Mac

    How about giving Mac users the option to locally store their notebooks just like PC users get? If not why do you charge the same for a less feature rich product?

  3. Mac: Find Tags and Summarize Tags

    add "Find Tags" & "Compile/Summarize All Tags" on the Mac. Very hard to believe that Microsoft does not include it for the Mac, very base feature.

  4. 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.

  5. OneNote for Mac should be fully like OneNote 2016 client

    OneNote for Mac client should have all the features and functions of the Windows OneNote 2016. One of the biggest fails is the ability to Store notebooks on your local hard drive instead of in the cloud, including backups.

    The biggest fail of the OneNote road map for both Windows and Mac is making both versions a stripped down shell of what it was. Instead of removing features of OneNote 2016 for those who purchase Office suites, OneNote should have all the new features that is going into the "free" version and retain all of the features supported by the…

  6. Mac: Make OneNote notebooks searchable via Spotlight

    One of the best built-in features of Mac OS X is the global search function called Spotlight. The bad thing: You cannot search OneNote-notebooks.

    Thank you for taking the time to complete the survey. Here are some of the results of the survey –
    • Sorting is needed for pages, sections, and notebooks
    • Sorting should persist while navigating, after close of notebook, across all devices, and be seen by people they share the notebook with
    • Current OneNote users want the following sorts – alphabetical, date created, and date modified
    • We heard from a lot of users who wanted to set section lists and page lists in a sort that they wouldn’t change often, but there was also a set of users who mentioned that they would want to live in a certain sort order, but switch to another sort order as an aid to locate specific items within their list

    Thank you again for your responses. This information helps us understand the experience we need to build to match your needs.

  8. Better printing for the Mac

    Printing support on the Mac is very primitive currently. You cannot change the page layout or reproduction size, so you often find that what you have drawn simply will not fit on the printed page.

  9. 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!.

  11. Collapsable pages and sub pages on all Mac OSX/iPhone/iPad applications, just like on Outlook 2013 PC version.

    Please add this feature ASAP. If you are like me and have hundreds of pages and hundreds of sub pages, then scrolling through the list to find what you want takes for ever, or moving sub pages between main pages.

    Please keep the UI consistent between the windows version and the mac version, as many people like myself, use both Windows and Mac versions and its very frustrating, when they don't work the same

  15. Mac: Dock the notebook list so it's always open

    I noticed that it is possible to pin the notebooks to the left border of OneNote in the free version on Windows, so I hope this will follow soon on Mac.

    I switch a lot between different section groups and notebooks. Therefore I need to have them available at a single click all the time.
    This might not seem like a big deal, since it only adds a single click to my workflow, but if I have to do that a lot, it gets incredible annoying very quickly!

  18. Just make your software consistent between platforms

    Why on earth do you need different versions at all? Surely you can understand and appreciate that many Office users have multiple types of platforms. You're telling me that Microsoft in it's infinite wisdom lets me set internal inks between notebook sections on a PC but on a Mac I can only link something to an online URL?

    Why would that feature be removed on a Mac? Who has the bright idea to say "Hey, Mac users don't need to internally link between pages on a notebook, but we understand PC users do." ???? I want to know the name…

  19. Add "export" option for OneNote MAC users

    Right now MAC users can only pdf one page at a time vs. the whole workbook. I would like to be able to export/pdf the whole workbook.
