In the MacOS Notes app, I would like to set my own default font colors for different markup styles (headings, mono, title, etc).

For example, when creating a new note all the headings would be green and the title would be red.

I'm aware of the advice here about changing the .strings file but it looks like that is now outdated.

Are there any alternatives?

  • Are you asking for alternative (but probably non-existent) way of modifying Notes' behaviour? Or are you asking for an alternative app (e.g. MS Word) which would do what you want?

  • So, I'm here because I need to remember how I did it. I changed the default font face for monospacing to Courier New on one Mac but now on a new Mac (not restored from a back up of an older Mac), I want to do the same, but can't find a place to do it. I remember something about "set as default"; which may not exist in newer OS versions. Maybe, because I changed it before it went away, the plist, or whatever controls this, was already changed before the option did ... theoretically.
