Change the Default Font of Notes App in OS X Mountain Lion
The new Notes app in OS X Mountain Lion features a default font that is hard to read and looks a bit goofy. If you want a more professional looking font that’s easier on the eyes, you can easily switch the default font from “Noteworthy” to the always classic Helvetica.
- From the Notes app, pull down the “Format” menu
- Open the “Font” submenu followed by “Default Font” and select “Helvetica” for the cleanest looking font, or choose “Marker Felt” to match the default Notes font in iOS
Changes take effect immediately. Helvetica is shown below:
Formatting can be lost as you’ll see in this video:
You can change it in the iOS Notes app too.
