Hi,

I’m wondering how I can get back the folder for notes that are not to be synced with iCloud. Right now, I do only have iCloud synced notes and folder are automatically created in this section.

Is it really that hard to achieve something that basic?

Thanks in advance. :)

Bring Back On My Mac

Had the same problem. The choice is:
Keep Notes only on your Mac
Share notes via iCloud
To get On My Mac back go to:
System Preferences -> Mail Contacts and Calendars
Select iCloud and uncheck Notes in which case 'On My Mac' will come back in 'Notes'
Intuitively obvious :) Ha

Thanks a lot for your answer!

That’s a very bad solution of Apple, though. Not only the way to set it up, but also the fact that online and offline notes can’t co-exist. :(

Agreed, I'm finding lots of items like this, bad influence of iOS over OS X since I just upgraded from 10.6 to 10.8
