windows Can Default Note Font Be Changed?

Recommended Posts

I know how to change a font in any particular note, but I haven't found a way to change the default font so all new notes will open with my preferred font. Any ideas?

Sure.

Tools >> Options >> Note

select your font and the font size.

Hi, I've made this change, but it's not taking effect. I really dislike Tahoma (the default Windows font). I've changed the font in the settings, saved, closed and reopened Evernote, but the default font is still Tahoma. Any ideas?

You should be seeing the change persisted to the registry: key is HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Evernote\Evernote, value is: "NoteFontFace". For example, mine now reads "Corbel".

Jefito: If you're talking about opening up the Windows registry, I don't know how (nor do I really want to fool with) doing that. I shouldn't even /have/ to edit the registry for this change to take effect given that Evernote has included (or at least attempted to include) means to do so within their options. Seems like a bug, to me.

Thanks for the feedback. Looks like I'll be using Tahoma.

I agree that you shouldn't need to edit the registry to make this change, and wasn't suggesting that; it's really the only means of verifying that the change is being made at all, since that's where the setting lives, but if you're uncomfortable with that, you should probably file a support request. See the link in my signature.

OMG thank you so much! You are the first person to actually have an answer AND it was really simple! Thank you thank you!

Yes, thanks for the info! I used Tools >> Options >> Note  . The title of the note is in Tahoma still, which I loathe. Only the text in the body of the note is in my selected font - Garamond. The problem is that I usually only use the titles, as quick reminders. 

 

So any advice to change the default for the top/title of the note?

Hi, Can anyone from Evernote relate to the problem raised by Lizzia. I'm experiencing the same issue of default font changes not taking an effect.

Thanks

@RONAR Please select File>Exit after choosing your desired font. Does the default font change change after you relaunch Evernote?

I seem to be having problems with my fonts. I have Tahoma 11 set as as default - which it is on new notes (and in the registry) but every now and again, usually when pasting a link to another note, it changes to something else - usually at 10pt.

I'm on the latest  pre-release build...

Though I am glad this works, why would this step be necessary? Is there any way to eliminate the need for it?

I tried to change my default font size from 14 to 12 without exiting and reopening Evernote. The note initially came out saying that the font size was 12. But when I put my cursor in the note area, the font size changed itself to 14, the prior default font size. The same thing happened in reverse when I tried to change the default back to 12.

I guess this isn't the biggest bug of all time, but it is quite a few years old and it would be nice to be able to change font sizes without exiting and reopening the program.

This turned out to be extremely useful as my installation of Evernote was changing the default font back to Tahoma no matter what font I selected in Tools >> Options >> Note

I also noticed that Evernote reads the registry key "NoteFontFace" when the program begins running, and writes back to that registry key on exit; so changing that key was only effective if performed while Evernote was not running.
