mac How do I quickly switch back to default font?

Recommended Posts

Often times I would copy and paste a pre-formatted snippet from another website into evernote and when I want to make a few notes on it after pressing newline, I want to use the default font instead of the font from the snippet.

 

Is there a hot key that I'm not aware of that can help me do this? Or is this a missing feature?

When you cut and paste a snippet from a website,  you inevitably include some of the coding that sets the font colours,  styles and layout in the clip.  Typing anywhere near the clip will add more text in whatever local style applies.  It's unlikely (IMHO) that Evernote can do much about that.

 

The only workaround may be to add your text in a different note and merge the two notes together.

Try this, when you right click in the note select Paste as Text versus Paste.  This should place the text with your default EN font.

Was searching for this very same thing tonight on Google. Came across this thread...and the "Paste as Text" works great.  And even though I'm not the one who asked the question...thank you!

You're welcome. I have been slacking on my ever-noting, your reply reminds me that I need to start using it again.

Using "Simplify Formatting" (CMD-SHIFT-F) might do the trick for you.

Also available from the EN menu Format > Simplify Formatting

 

If you just click anywhere in the Note but do NOT select any text, it will apply to the entire Note.

If you select some text, then press the shortcut key, it will apply only to the selected text.

"Paste as Text" is not an option that is available in EN Mac as of Ver 6.0.11, either by right-click or via the Edit menu.

The only choices are "Paste" and "Paste and match style".

Didn't know the Evernote platforms were in competition.   :huh:   I use both, as do a lot of people (work vs home).

I'd like to see complete parity (from a functional POV).

Joke.  :P

 

And functional parity is a heckuva concept that would be most excellent to see.
