onenote 2013 saving multiple .one files for every tab

I am using onenote 2013 and when I create a notebook, if I have 60 tabs in it, it creates 60 seperate .one files. This is a problem for me because to view the notebook on my iphone, I have to scroll through 60 different notebooks. On my iphone, every .one file looks like a notebook, which it is not. This worked fined with onenote 2010, but since MS changed the design with onenote 2013, this is a problem for onenote on my iphone.

Any idea's how I can save all my .one files into just one file? Or using onenote 2013, to save my notebook as only .one file?

Don't save them as a .ONE file, save them as a .ONEPKG which saves all notes as a single package (basically the ONEPKG serves as a table of contents). What you can do is select all of your .ONE files, goto FILE-EXPORT and then export it to a .ONEPKG and then open the .ONEPKG and edit from there. Then backup and/or delete all of your .ONE files. Or, you can create a new .ONEPKG and then copy all of the .ONE files to it.

Brad, I saved the file as a .onepkg, but when I try to open that on my iphone or on my desktop pc using onenote, it won't open it, because it's not a onenote notebook, it's a package file.  For some reason it's not working for me.

on my iphone, when I do open existing, it's not even listed there for me to open, so I can't open the .onepkg file.
How do I open it on my phone?

again, all the files need to be in a .one file, as my iphone can recognize them as a onenote notebooks.

Otherwise, it's useless.

Thanks Brad, your advice did NOT fix the problem, but I wanted to give you the points for at least taking your time and writing.
