I'm using the trial version of Outline on Mac. When trying to open an existing OneNote notebook tha's located on OneDrive I do not see all my notebooks and there is no way to navigate to another folder. Any suggestions?

Hello Paul,

please make sure you use "+" butto to open your notebooks.

Another thing is that Outline recognizes only those OneNote notebooks on OneDrive, that have been shared to OneDrive with OneNote, using OneNote Share function. If you just move or upload a folder with OneNote files to OneDrive - Outline won't see them.

Please make sure you share your notebooks correctly.

Do these suggestions help? Please let me know how it goes.

I was on vacation from 18 - 28 July and now my trial has expired so I cannot verify your answer. Is there a way to extend my trial period?

Sorry, no way to extend trial at the moment.

Tried again on another machine. With OneNote for Mac, you can only work with / create notebooks on OneDrive. All notebooks that I cannot see or open in Outline were created directly with OneNote for Mac, so I do not see how sharing with myself (the creator) will help or even how to do that...

Could you please send me 2 screenshots at
1. showing your notebooks on OneDrive.
2. showing OneDrive menu when you click in Outline - Open from > OneDrive.

Thank you!
