How can we improve OneNote for Mac?

Export/Download Notebooks

Please allow us to export/download/transfer notebooks to our personal computer or another account. I'm going to lose my notes because we have to switch accounts for storage and I can't transfer my notes.

        yes. A MS helpdesk rep and I tried quite hard to transfer notebooks from a personal account to a business account on a Mac. It seems that this is not possible. I'll try again with a Windows computer, but that should not be necessary ...

        "OneNote client" on Macbook doesn't allow to export a "local" OneNote notebook. It only supports to save a page in PDF.

        If the two accounts will be active at the same time, you can connect them both at the same time to Onenote. Then you can use the move command to move/copy them from notebook to another.

        If you will not have two accounts at the same time, you could open personal account and do the same thing.

        All that is synced to OneDrive is a url link to the online editing. This is an incredibly basic feature and I'm not sure why this is not possible, but it's making seriously consider whether or not OneNote will work for my needs. I don't want to spend a few years taking notes only to have them disappear because I have no local copy and I either leave my organization or my school account no longer is active.

        I have the same problem as this poser. And no, you can't download the files from OneDrive or sync them locally.

        They should be on your OneDrive (if you've stored them there). Just download them from there and upload them to your new account?

        Does that work?
