    I run MacOS Sierra 10.12.5 on my Macbook Pro. I have had the “share” option on Notes ever since it came with el capitan, but the option has never worked on my computer? It’s worked fine on my phone and iPad, but not the computer. It doesn’t give me a list of ways to “Collaborate” any notes nor does it actually allow me to Email anything through the “Share” button. When clicking the “Share” button, it says that there are “No Services”. So, I have no way to share or collaborate any notes on FROM my Macbook. Everything has to be initiated from my iPhone or iPad. Is there a fix for this because this is obivously not working properly. Thanks!
