  1. Offer a .dmg version of OneNote for Mac

    As a one-to-one school, we use a mobile device management system (MDM) / file management system, which does not behave well with apps from the iTunes store because those downloaded there are associated with an iTunes account. Our systems and network technicians have to do a lot more work and tweak to the package because of the extra metadata associated with the iTunes packages... a simple .dmg image from the Microsoft website would be much easier to deploy to our 1700+ students who have Office 365 Education (A2) accounts, but not necessarily the offline access to make purely-online notebooks feasible.…

  2. Please give us te option to print a section, or an entire notebook, instead of just a page at a time. (Using OneNote for Mac 15.14

    It would be nice to archive a file in Acrobat, which means having the ability to convert the whole notebook. At minimum, printing entire sections, instead of just pages, is really necessary to avoid tedious wastes of time...
    Thanks for your consideration!!

  3. export to .docx, .ppt, etc. like the Windows app

    in the mac version it's not possible to export a note to .docx .ppt etc. files (only to .pdf files) whereas in the Windows version it's possible
    it's a great lack, it would bring much more productivity to add this possibility...

  7. Free the Mac version

    Now that the Windows version of OneNote is fully free and unencumbered, please do the same for the Mac version. And, by the way, LOCAL notebooks are a MUST. Grow your brand, grow your vision, not by strangulation but by expanding features! :)

  8. Add a Quick Note feature

    OneNote is great for things like meeting or class notes where you're prepared (you know precisely what notebook and section to put it in). It is not good when you need to create a quick to-do list or jot down an idea that suddenly comes to mind or someone throws your way out of your current context.

    In these cases, I really want to capture the text first and worry about where to place it for organization purposes later. Like being able to access your camera on your smartphone from the lock screen. If you don't have that ability, by…

  9. Use mac services to make it really easy to cpature content from anywhere on a mac

    I really want to just highlight text anywhere and clip to OneNote on my Mac, just like I can do in Windows. Ideally with a clever comment saying where the clipping comes from.

    Mac Services are exactly made for that. Please support them, and all other OS integrations (share box) etc.

  10. IMEでの「分節区切り」の位置をわかりやすくして欲しい

    漢字変換をして変換結果が間違っていた際に、分節を変更しようと思っても、未確定の部分が全て青く反転しており、分節の位置がわかりづらいと思います。改善していただけないものでしょうか。

  11. Keep the App open on OneNote for Mac

    Please add the option to keep OneNote for Mac open even after closing all windows. It take too much time for the app to open every time I want to take a simple note or look for info in there.

    OneNote is an app that doesn't need to have a window open all the time, but it also needs to be opened frequently, so the splash screen saying "starting..." gets old really fast.

  14. Macs aren't able to export pdfs to google drive

    PCs can export files from one note to google drives for sharing without it being distorted but if you try it on a mac the pdf gets all messed up which is weird because a pdf is supposed to be compatible with everything. I need some help with this.

  16. Add screen capture and auto-correct

    The Windows version has two very useful features, built-in button to capture parts of the screen and insert in the notebook, and use the auto correct entries defined in Word. So if I enter "nlsas" and I want it to convert to "NL-SAS", I define it once and I'm done. Both of these are basic features that should be part of the Mac version as well.

    Also, in the Windows version, highlighting text brings up a mini-menu by the cursor with basic options for formatting. This should also be part of Mac version.

  19. I need to be able to save files directly to my laptop.

    I don't always have reliable internet access, like when I'm traveling. There are many areas around the world where good Wi-Fi is hard to find, you need to think about ALL your customers.

  20. Provide a way to import OneNote 2010 .one files without requiring a Windows PC

    I have a whole directory structure of .one files (representing several notebooks) copied from my old Windows PC that I no longer have access to. There is apparently no way to get them into Mac OneNote 2016 without sharing them to OneDrive, which requires access to a PC running Office. A google search shows I'm not the only one who would like a better solution.
