Do you want OneNote on your Mac?

Do you want OneNote on your Mac?

  • Comments 39

I saw this blog post and it caught my eye: why do you want OneNote on your Mac?  I own a Mac and I LOVE OneNote so for me having OneNote on my Mac would just rock my world.  Anyhow please go over and tell Nadyne how you would want OneNote on your Mac.

  • This is interesting. Microsoft’s Mac Unit is hearing from users that they’d like to see OneNote

  • I use one note now on my mac, using VMware Fusion, it works pretty well and with Groove I have kind of success syncing between the mac and the pc. What I really need is a Mac tablet.

  • Spreading OneNote's reach would be a good thing! Its a great program; discovering it was the second reason (after TabletPC devices themselves; I have a Motion LE1600) that led me back to Windows after 13 years on the Mac. I'm in the middle of the transition so emotionally I'm still very fragile, rationally I'm manic. I keep wondering if this is all part of the characteristic mid-life crisis, only I'm not divorcing, buying a sports car, and dating girls half my age...

    Anyway!  Other than supporting any effort to port OneNote to Mac, I wanted to point out a small thing that defies explanation in my usage of OneNote 2007.  When using the 'Send to OneNote' PowerToy in Internet Explorer 7, why does all the text lose its line feeds/carriage returns (not sure which)? Paragraphs run together and make a mess of imported text. The same thing happened in OneNote 2003. Is there a reason this behaviour continues, some technical reason why it cannot be corrected/improved?

    I hope you don't mind, but I plan to post this to Nadyne's comments too - perhaps someone will eventually come across it and respond with some useful information - I've searched high and low but its as if no one else has noted the behaviour. Its very likely, given my experience, due to me being an idiot for having missed an important tick box in OneNote's Preferences, so my apologies if this turns out to be the case.

    Many thanks for such a great blog, Dan!  You rock!  Thanks to the writing of yourself and Chris Pratley, my mid-life crisis has gone much more smoothly than I could have hoped!

  • That would be so nice.... And yes, a Mac Tablet is also what I'm waiting for. The Modbook should be the answer, however it's delivery to the market is taking musch longer than expected.  But maybe Apple self will come up with a tablet based on the touch interface they developed for the iPhone?  Anyway, onenote and mindmanager on a Mac is what I need...:-)

  • DEFINITELY would love to get OneNote on the mac... recently made the move to a MacBook Pro/MacIntel and boy oh boy, the note taking stuff sure leaves a bit to be desired when compared to OneNote.

    Sure miss it...

  • The question I have is, if you bought one of those unofficial Mac tablets, or you *cough* Mac on x86 tablet *cough*, and ran OneNote through VMWare or Parallels, would the tablet features run?

    (Because I know that you can get drivers for the tablet serial device itself)

    Thanks,

    Victor

  • Yes, absolutely.  There are other note-taking programs that are natively available for the Mac.  However, none of them come close to being able to offer what OneNote has been able to bring to the table.  I look forward to the day when OneNote will be available for the Mac.

  • Yes, absolutely want. I use it all day long and it's the best note taking software I've ever seen.

  • I would give anything to have OneNote and Outlook integration on a Mac.  I am thinking about leaving PC for a Mac, but am resisting just because of One Note.  A true Mac tablet would be a dream come true.  I lecture off tablets, but use Onenote on my 10" Fujitsu notebook daily.  I may just go to the Mac and run it with Prallels for Outlook and One Note.  I suppose that sounds crazy, but the display of the Mac Pro is so amazing for photo work, It's worth using it as an XP machine full time.

  • Absolutely - at least if that means iPhone support. I don't care about the MAC itself as much - though this would help it appeal to a wider audience in the Apple world, but for the iPhone I'm really missing a good note app - particularly since moving from a Blackberry with Outlook Notes sync abilities. (I never have figured out why either Notes or preferably OneNote doesn't sync thru MS Exchange).

    OneNote with full edit/read/search on the iPhone would be wonderful.

  • Yes - having the ability to get my PC onenote notes on my new iPhone would be awesome.  That's the only thing I miss from my old MS smartphone.  

    Anyone know of a solution for that?

  • +1 for OneNote on the iPhone!  That's what I really want!!!!

  • I desperately want OneNote on my new Mac. That was a main thing that kept me from ever buying a mac. I use Onenote on Vmware Fusion but having full Mac integration would be far superior. There is nothing remotely like it for Mac... I have just spent a week looking for anything that comes close. (Skitch is handy but a fraction of the usefulness of Onenote.

    I loved the Onenote-Outlook task integration and used it frequently to send emails to Onenote, apply tasks to them, then send tasks back to Outlook. I am really, really missing that on the Mac side. Task managers are all anemic by comparison. Best i've found for Mac is "Things" but it can't hold a candle to Onenote + Outlook.
