    Good afternoon to all and thanks for reading my topic.





    I am a new user here in the forum and also new to the SP3 and i would like to make a request for help. I bought it because i loved the pen and the ability to write and i have it for 1 week now. Nonetheless i understood it saves our notes into the cloud onedrive but i really wanted to be able to download them into my hard drive so i can keep a backup of everything i write.... but i dont seem to get that option, i only have and option that say share.......... does anyone have the same problem or know how to download our notes ? (i leave a picture below)

    If you are using the Free version of OneNote, cloud is the only option, the paid version opens up the possibility of locally sourced notebooks....

    You can export them just not store entire notebooks locally, it is a built in limitation of the free version...

    If you have Office 365 Subscription or a Paid version of Office 2013 you can store locally.

    If you are using the MUI version of OneNote, then locally stored notebooks are not supported under any circumstance and neither is exporting. You can get the desktop version for free as well now...I use both for different reasons....

    I knew i was right. But if they are saved directly into the cloud how come the cloud does not have a save - export option ????

    Yes, you need to make it the default and make sure you run Windows Update to grab the patch.
