Export notes as a PDF in OneNote for the web

On OneNote for the web, you can export a page to PDF (portable data format), which you can then print later.

Note: You can't export an entire notebook or section to PDF. You can print only one page at a time.

  1. From your web browser, go to the OneNote for the web page you want to export as a PDF.

  3. In the Export As box, type a file name and choose where you want to save the PDF.

Note: When you save notes as a PDF file, you’re saving a static snapshot of those notes. Any changes to those notes that you later make in OneNote won’t get changed in the PDF file you created.

PDF files you create with OneNote can be viewed and printed on your Mac with the free Adobe Reader software.
