Font Size Appearance Variations between Win & IOS

Recommended Posts

Evernote looks fine in Windows. However, on my iPhone some words look the same as they do in the Windows version. These words show up with different font sizes from other words in the same sentence. When I place my cursor on a Win "problem area" the font size indicates it is the same size as the rest of the sentence -- and it looks the same. Yet, on my iPhone the difference is obvious. I've tried highlighting these "problem areas," clicking on the same font size, or an even larger size, then returning back to the original size, hoping I could "jar" the formatting back to normal, but to no avail. This is maddening form me and I can't figure it out. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance for your help.

The appearance of text is controlled by the OS and by embedded information. It depends on what is installed on the device - fonts that may not be available will be replaced, slightly altering appearance. iOS does not really have full font control, as Windows or MacOS does. 

It is improving in this respect, and the new clients for EN are said to have better formatting control than today.

If you want to try something, you could copy the text on Windows or Mac and paste it into a new note, using an option like „paste plain text“ or „paste without format“.

My experience has been that anything you drag and drop into a note on Windows or paste without using same style will have a different font on IOS.  To fix, do a remove formatting on the Windows note (Ctrl+Shift+space) which will return the note to default font.  After syncing the IOS note should be all whatever the default font is on IOS.
