How do i open onenote on mac

Whether OneNote is suitable as an Evernote replacement for you will depend largely on what you use Evernote for. And I say this after attempting to use Evernote in stops and starts many times since I first reviewed the original iOS version of the app several years ago. But, mind you, I have very specific note taking needs.

How to Uninstall OneNote on Mac

For me, OneNote, while imperfect, is a perfect solution. But you do need a OneDrive account in order to save documents, as there is still no way to use a file saved locally on your Mac. Documents created using OneNote can be shared with and edited by anyone, whether they have the app or not, as it offers not only apps for Mac and iOS, but a perfectly serviceable web app that supports most everything you can do with your Mac. Each OneNote document consists of a series of tabs, referred to as sections, and each section can have an unlimited number of pages.

Pages within a section are what you use to organize your information.

And each page allows you to enter information a freeform fashion, which is to say that you can click anywhere and just start typing. Your freeform typing is added to a text box that, once you enter text, can be rearranged, formatted, and organized on a page. An update to the app now allows you to drag files from the Finder to add them to the document, with some limitations.

PDF files, Office documents, text files, and images can all be added to OneNote pages with a drag and drop.

One of the things that makes OneNote excellent is the option it offers for linking to both internal and external references. This kind of Notebook linking capability allows you to create highly sophisticated documents that have both internal and external references.

OneNote is not perfect. It still lags behind the Windows versions with relation to features and capabilities. For example, in the Windows version of OneNote you can add an Excel document to a page, open the document, make changes to the spreadsheet, save it, and see those changes reflected in OneNote.

If you open the same Notebook in OneNote for Mac you can see the same information, but you can only open a read-only copy of the Excel document. I switched from a PC to a Mac.

The old machine is gone, so I can't access it or the Windows OneNote program associated with it. I have the PC's.

The old files do not appear on OneDrive, so I can't fetch them from there, either. Any help would be appreciated.

I have the same question SWischner Replied on March 12, You would not be able to open them on your Mac, because they need to be saved in a special, hidden format that for now only OneNote for Windows is able to create. Thanks for marking this as the answer.
