You can use OptionShift⌘-V to paste and match the current style. This removes all previous formatting, links, etc. If you would like to make this the default action when pressing ⌘V, open System Preferences -> Keyboard -> Keyboard Shortcuts, and select Application Shortcuts from the list on the left. Then, hit + to make a new shortcut, select ...

iOS Notes syncing works through the IMAP protocol, which in iCloud is integrated into the email service. Although Apple could technically choose to allow for notes syncing without explicitly requiring an email address, they have chosen to make it a part of the email, almost like Notes is its own email folder. You should also be able to sync your Notes using ...

They're in ~/Library/Containers/com.apple.Notes/Data/Library/CoreData/ExternalRecords/. You can probably just copy the whole ~/Library/Containers/com.apple.Notes/ folder from the old installation.

The iOS Notes app is not able to insert pictures. At best it will paste a url to an image. I suggest you use another note app such as Evernote or Notability.

If you are looking for a way to sync and edit notes, then I suggest Simplenote. It isn't a Dashboard widget, but it's very lightweight and all of your notes are saved to a central server that all of your devices can see.

Unfortunately there's no url scheme for the Notes app, so there's no way to jump to a specific one. There are two good sites for finding iOS app url schemes, handleOpenURL and the iPhone URL Schemes page on Akosma's wiki. The former has many more urls, but the latter occasionally has something the other doesn't. A quick search in handleOpenURL for "text" ...

You could just wait for the next iPhone update. While it's not guaranteed to have the ability to add photos, I believe it's likely that it will have the ability to do so. That's because one of the new features in Mountain Lion is a Notes app which synchronizes with iCloud, and one of it's features is adding pictures to notes: Notes in OS X Mountain Lion ...

The only unremovable Dock icon is the Finder, removing anything else should result in it staying removed. There is nothing special about Reminders and Notes, and it's always annoyed me that they put in icons for things like launchpad etc when they have system wide keystrokes or gestures for the same task. One point to bear in mind tho, is that to prevent ...

You can go in "Terminal.app" and write (if your system is in english): nano /Applications/Notes.app/Contents/Resources/en.lproj/DefaultFonts.plist You will see a long file, but it's easy to understand it's content. You just need to change the ?? value, it is the default font size for each font. When you are done, just control+O to save then control+X to ...

You need a 10.6/10.7 system handy as this doesn't work in 10.8. The method I've previously used is as follows: Plug your iPhone into your Mac and go into iTunes -> Your Device -> Info tab and choose to Sync notes. This should grab the notes out of the On my iPhone section and dump them into Mail.app. Your notes should appear under the Notes section in ...

Took me a while to figure this out so I'll share it if it helps someone else: Instead of tapping on the Notes icon, search for a specific note in spotlight then open that note. After that Notes will work normally again. (Apple knows about the bug but they didn't fix it in time for the release.)

You can host your own notes if you run an IMAP server. There are additional details in knowledge base article HT4191. A great IMAP server is Dovecot.

If you have an iTunes backup, you can browse it with this application and maybe find your note again. The linked app works only for Mac, but here's two alternatives (not tested) : iPhone backup extractor which is a paid multiplatform app iphonebackupbrowser which is less polished and windows only, but free.

As of iOS 5, there is no way in stock iOS to adjust the shake gesture sensitivity.

I personally prefer Simplenote because it's simpler, plain text and not that fancy. Well, it's just text snippets and notes for me. Google gets you loads of comparisons: Simplenote and Evernote – in a rather large nutshell Simplenote vs Evernote Evernote vs. Simplenote EDIT If you want to look into Simplenote check out Notational Velocity!

Your notes can synchronize with Gmail or iCloud, not both as far as I can tell. To sync a note with Gmail do the following Set up your account and check the notes box in the Mail, Contacts & Calendars preference pane. Go to notes in Mountain Lion Go to View -> Show Folders List -- or -- click the folders list icon in the bottom left side of the Notes ...

This is actually amazingly simple in Mountain Lion. Open the Notes app. You should have a list of notes folders on the left side. Select the "On My iPhone" folder or whichever folder you want to move notes from. Then select all the notes using Command+A. Drag them to the Notes folder in iCloud. I literally just did this about 5 or so minutes ago. Hope ...

the way that apple handles notes on the iOS devices is that really they are just specially formatted email messages bing sent to yourself from yourself. This was a bit more obvious in earlier versions of OSX as the notes you would write would appear in the apple email client mail.app. If you want to use you iCloud account to sync your notes then yes apple ...

In Notes.app when you are in the "On this iPhone" section, any notes you create will exist only on the phone (not synced with google or iCloud). The option disappears when all your notes are synced, presumably to encourage you to save to iCloud by default, but the solution is simply to leave one in the "on this iPhone" folder.

I just recovered my Notes on 10.9.2 installation, the file is SQLite 3.x database located in ~/Library/Containers/com.apple.Notes/Data/Library/Notes/NotesV2.storedata

No, there is no history of notes. Once modified and synchronised, the note is overwritten and older versions are not available. Per my answer on your last question, you may be able to obtain older versions if a device has been offline, but besides this, unfortunately not. You can provide feedback to Apple at apple.com/feedback.

Using OSX 10.8 it is simply not possible at the moment, what you need to do is to access a Mac running 10.7 or lower and sync them to that Mac and move them to an IMAP notes account. Then, you can access the IMAP notes in 10.8 Notes app and drag them all to iCloud. The only manual part necessary is to remove the duplicate notes left "On your iPhone" - they ...

When you go to Gmail, you should now see a 'notes' label in gmail. This will hold your notes, but you can not edit them in gmail.

There's a difference between syncing with iTunes and over the air sync. If you set up your Gmail account to use over the air sync then when you open up the Notes app (on the iPod), you should notice a back button on the top left that allows you to change which account you use for notes. If you choose your Gmail account and start creating notes, you will ...

In settings use accessibility to turn on assistive touch. That gives you a virtual home button which includes many things including shake. Touch the virtual home button, touch device. One of the options under device is shake.

Short answer is no :(. That is, unless you can get to the note before iCloud updates it, but that would not be much time at all. Not that they are in the same class, but one can do that with Time Machine. It allows one to go back through, and it has saved and kept track of the changes that have been made to documents.

Currently there is no way to use notes outside of Mail.app as suggested there are other apps like evernote that will sync but not iOS notes sadly. I would have expected some kind of widget like stickies to work with notes, but no.

That was one of the things I also noticed and found a bit strange - therefore, I developed the app My Photo Note. You can let the app set a link of your photo note into the iPhone calendar - tapping the link will open up the photo note in My Photo Note. My Photo Note is also not free ($1.99 for the full version), but you can try the lite version for free: ...

The feature description is a bit misleading. It appears that by "close Notes", Apple means "close the main Notes window", not "close the Notes app", which (not surprisingly) leaves other windows open. In fact, the context menu refers to the main Notes window as Notes: So what Apple's description basically means: Even if you close Notes, the note ...
