    Actually, those are called Quick Start Guides.  I only mention that because they are VERY different than the thousands of Templates on the website.  You can see all of the free Templates for OneNote here:…/results.aspx

  2. Sadly, clicking on "2013" on the templates page reveals there are absolutely no 2013 templates as yet.

    I wonder if someone can help me!  I just got OneNote 2013 & Windows 8.  I am trying to export a OneNote page to a PDF and I get the error "something went wrong and we can't do what you asked.  We're sorry".  So I tried exporting a different file, tried to export to Word and even tried a different file location and file name.  Also tried restarting computer.

    Anyone seen this before or have any advice??  Help!

    Jane – can you send me an email using the "Email blog author" link to the upper right?  I'd like to understand what is happening here.

    Also, if you click File | Account | About OneNote, what version do you see? It should be something like 15.0.4420.1017 or similar.

    I get same error message as Jane  ("Something went wrong and we can't do what you asked.  We're sorry") when attemtping to save my file (OneNote 2013 / Office 365 on Win 7 x64).

    I'm also getting the error "Something went wrong…" whenever I try to export a OneNote page to any format, include docx and pdf.

    I'm on OneNote 15.0.4623.1002 on Win7

    Are there any solutions or workarounds to this?

  7. JohnGuin says:

    We are trying to track this down.  Where are you trying to save the exported file?  Does it work if you save it to your desktop?

  8. Gary Grudzinskas says:

    Saving it to the Desktop worked for me after getting the error. Thanks John.
