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 ...

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 ...

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.

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

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.

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 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 ...

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 ...

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!

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 ...

As it turned out, Apple does not provide an option to auto sync/copy previously created notes for Notes app to iCloud in order to sync to other iDevice. From this doc: "In Notes on your iOS device or Mac, verify that your notes are not stored in a local folder. Example: On My iPhone or On My Mac. If you have notes in these folders, you will need to copy or ...

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.

You could also open Siri and tell Siri Note hello I would note "hello" for you click on it and it opens notes and it would work like normall

In OS X 10.9 (“Mavericks”), at least, they’re not stored as individual text documents in a place where you can see them and manipulate them. Even the notes that you choose to save “On my Mac” end up sandboxed in places like ...

The notes should be stored in your backup, at least.

iOS uses mail to store notes similar to other office type software. You can disable that by going to settings and turning off notes for any mail account where you are being creeped out.

If you previously had Twonky Media Server installed and removed it, that could be the culprit. I had the same issue, though with Lotus Notes (also conveniently called Notes.app), starting/popping up every 5 seconds. CleanTwonkyServerData.command (in /Users/Shared) was the culprit, it might be the same for you.

Apple provides a web interface, so you can log in to https://icloud.com and see which notes are syncing. Then once you are logged in, go to one of the devices and sign out and back in with the same Apple ID. Check that the date is correct on the device before signing back in. At that point, go to the settings app and ensure notes are synced for iCloud. ...

How about creating another folder, call it 'pinned' and keep your notes there. Works for me, anyway...

You could use sort by Title then use wildcard characters (ie *), or cleaner method is to use numeric, 1, 2, 3 in the title so you have more then one pinned and in order.
