I'm a new OneNote user. I'm trying to create my first notebook. However, the "Create" button is disabled. See screencap below.

OneNote's New Notebook dialog

P.S. The "Where" menu is empty.

OS: macOS High Sierra, version 10.13
Application: Microsoft OneNote for Mac, version 15.39 (171010)


In order to create a new notebook, you must select an option from the Where menu. So your question should have been: "Why is my Where menu empty?" The reason your Where menu is empty is that you're not signed-in to your Microsoft account. You can sign-in to your Microsoft account using the Sign in... item on the OneNote menu (see screen cap below).
