One of the joys of using Apple Notes is its simplicity, but sometimes you might want to customize it a bit. Changing the font is a fantastic way to personalize your notes or make them more readable.
While Apple Notes on Mac doesn’t provide a wide array of font choices like some other note-taking apps, it does offer some level of customization. In this blog post, I’ll guide you through the steps to change the font in Apple Notes on your Mac.
Why Change the Font?
Before we jump into the how-to, let’s talk about why you might want to change fonts:
- Personalization: A different font can give your notes a unique flair.
- Readability: Some fonts are easier on the eyes and can make long notes less tiring to read.
- Accessibility: If you have vision issues, a clearer, larger font can make a world of difference.
Steps to Change the Font
Use the Format Menu
- Open Your Note: Open the note in which you want to change the font.
- Highlight Text: Select the text whose font you wish to change.
- Format Menu: Navigate to the ‘Format’ option in the menu bar at the top of the screen or right-click.
- Choose Font: Hover over ‘Font’ in the dropdown, and another submenu will appear. Select ‘Show Fonts’. A new window will appear and you can choose your preferred font.
Use Keyboard Shortcuts
Apple Notes doesn’t have a specific shortcut to change fonts, but you can use the system-wide font panel:
- Highlight Text: Select the text you want to modify.
- Font Panel: Press Command + T to bring up the font panel.
- Select Font: In the font panel, browse and select the font that you like.
- Preview Fonts: Use the Font panel’s preview feature to see how your selected font will look before applying it.
- Be Consistent: If you’re taking notes for a specific purpose, it’s a good idea to maintain a consistent font throughout.
- Multiple Fonts: You can use multiple fonts in a single note, but use this sparingly to avoid making your note too chaotic.
Changing the font in Apple Notes on Mac might seem limited, but there are ways to make it work. Whether you want to improve readability or just add some personal style to your notes, switching the font can make a big difference.
