    It sucks MS doesn't make a Mac OneNote app when they do make a iOS version but that aside, I work from home once a week at least and I'm all Mac all the time at home but for work we rely heavily on OneNote with a bunch of templates to help make our jobs easier.

    While it works well enough at work from my Mac as I can just RDP to my virtual Windows box, I don't 1: want to be on the VPN all day and 2: the experience is pretty awful even if I do jump on the VPN.

    As far as I know there isn't any app for the Mac that will sync with Skydrive and use the OneNote documents but I'm wondering if there's a good way to at least import and keep updated into some other app like EverNote?

    The key is for it to be automated and seamless.

    I've played with EverNote in the past but the biggest issue is I can't seem to do "NoteBooks" with many "Sections" and then the pages within the sections to import in a usable way within EverNote. It's a very flat structure.

    Does anyone have any creative solutions or a way to wrap OneNote and get it to work really well in ML?

    Dammit MS get with it! Why offer it on iOS and also offer the Office suite on OS X but NOT offer OneNote, very frustrating for us users/admins that use a variety of Operating Systems.

    You may want to consult the company IT or legal departments before syncing your company information to Evernote or some other cloud-based service. Some companies have strict policies about doing such things.

    That aside, I agree that a lack of One Note on the Mac is a problem. It is also a concern in the company I work for (but the Macs are used internally in parallel with Wintel PCs).

    I'm aware of an compliant with what I sync, but it's something anyone else that sees this should consider if they have not.
