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 ...
Yeah, the option is a bit well hidden, dunno why.
Its called Struck through instead of strikethrough
To get the text formatting in Notes 4.0
1) Make a text selection for the struck through, right click on it
2) Select Fonts then Styles
3) Use the Style Browser or whatever that is called
to check the Favourite Styles and then select Struck Through from ...
The notes created in OS X can be found in Google Inbox under unbundled label "Notes". If you create a folder with [name] in OS X Notes app, the notes will be synced to Google Inbox unbundled label "Notes/name".
The ‘Import to Notes’ function imports text files. Notes itself stores its files in a SQLite database, which is contained within the group.com.apple.notes group container.
To use this as your Notes database, quit Notes and copy the contents to the group container on your current system.
Notes.app in OS X 10.10 can do all you request:
Font colour, size, and family can be set through the Format menu.
Substitutions and smart quote behaviour are managed through the Edit > Substitutions sub-menu.
Beyond Notes: Text Wrangler
If you need more than Notes.app offers, try Text Wrangler from Bare Bones.
Adding an additional method to Seamus'excellent answer from above… this one keeps you entirely in the Mac app:
In the Mac app, go to the note that you want to reference ("Donuts I've Eaten") and click the Add people to this note button in the Notes toolbar.
In the dialog box that pops up, choose Copy Link and then Share. The Share button may be ...
Most people I know set the paste shortcut to invoke paste and match style. Here is the command to change:
You can paste with style when you really want it, but for me 95% of the time I don’t want the style and only the raw text.
Open System Preferences
Go to the Shortcuts tab
Select App Shortcuts
Select the + button
Type Paste and Match ...
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 ...
Empirically, it seems that the 3 items in
are updated as a Note is changed, whereas those in
are only updated periodically [I cannot find how to trigger those to update, I thought making a new Note may do it, but it appears not.]
My research was ...
Much quicker way of fixing this is just to make a new iCloud notes folder, move all your notes into that and back again. This seems to rebuild the index- you can then get rid of the new folder.
This is useful if like me you don't have a quick option to back up your notes separately.
As someone who's done a lot of UX (user experience) work over the years, I have to admit I was very surprised when I first saw the hyperlink colour in Apple's Notes app. Not so surprised that someone would actually propose it, but very surprised it passed through all the review processes at Apple.
Anyway, I do have a couple of workaround options that may ...
I believe that ⇧⌘L is intended to replace striking items through. This provides you with a very nice list that you can check and uncheck items. It is annoying that they would bury the strikethrough, but I do enjoy the checklist a lot more, especially when viewing the notes on my iPhone or iPad.
You can go in "Terminal.app" and write (if your system is in english):
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 ...
Autocorrect is controlled by the NSAutomaticSpellingCorrectionEnabled key. You can set this in the Notes app preferences for it to apply consistently.
defaults write com.apple.notes NSAutomaticSpellingCorrectionEnabled -bool false
Reset with defaults delete com.apple.notes NSAutomaticSpellingCorrectionEnabled.
If you mean the native Notes App, you can access your notes on icloud.com, unless you don't have them backed up. Then you have to log in. If you have two-factor authentication turned on, you'll have to use another Apple device you own.
If you've successfully logged in, you now should be able to access your notes from the "Notes" app on the website.
Notes in macOS High Sierra includes a Monospaced format.
In addition to the existing format types such as Title, Heading and Body, there is a new format named ‘Monospaced’. This format is a variation of the Body format but with a monospaced font family.
macOS High Sierra Hidden Features, Notes.app
I'd like to see this as an actual formatting option too… but it seems unlikely to come any time soon. Experimenting with various Unicode line characters (like ―) or a series of em dashes (opt + shift + dash) is not a great solution as the width of the "line" doesn't change with the width of the note window. And if you squeeze the window width narrower than ...
You may have copied the wrong directory, depending on your operating system.
Newer operating systems (I believe El Capitan and above, but certainly Sierra and above) use this folder:
Without iCloud there should be no issue with disappearing notes, which you would have to work around, if you were signed into ...
It is not currently possible to search only undeleted notes without either emptying the Recently Deleted folder, or without locking all the notes you've deleted.
Recently Deleted folder
Deleted notes are placed in the Recently Deleted folder and, by default they will remain there for 30 days before they are automatically deleted. This applies to both macOS ...

This worked for me. It is sometimes unclickable, if that is the case click a note and write something in this. This action will make it clickable.
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 ~/Library/Containers/com.apple.Notes/Data/Library/CoreData/ExternalRecords/AA97DB8E-73B4-4C75-B54F-B39E5BC7521F/Note/_records/0/p6....
Notes is scriptable, and the dictionary can be opened with Script Editor for details.
There's also a lengthy tutorial here.
Although I've not tested it with iCloud, you should be able to set the account, and create a note in that account.
Simplifying the example on that page, and using my Exchange account, I was able to create the note using this script:
