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 Select Keyboard Go to the Shortcuts tab Select App Shortcuts Select the + button Type Paste and Match ...

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: ~/Library/Group Containers/group.com.apple.notes/ Without iCloud there should be no issue with disappearing notes, which you would have to work around, if you were signed into ...

Edit>Spelling and Grammar>Correct Spelling Automatically 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.

There is a solution to add a horizontal line by just using a keyboard shortcut that triggers Automator to type a line of underscores for you. It works well, and it would be great if the keystroke animations were removed when pressing the shortcut! Check this brilliant answer at macrumors.com by chown33 (note that the steps below were written for OS X 10.8.4 ...

The rows and columns of Apple Notes's tables should automatically adjust to fit content. There is no control to explicitly set a width or height, apart from adding whitespace to increase text length (not recommended).

The Notes app in macOS does not display notes as files on your computer regardless of whether they are synced to iCloud or not. The Spotlight service is designed to display relevant information to a user by having access to all Apple apps (and most App Store apps) and their content. Notes does not store its content as a simple .txt or .rtf files so it gets ...

If you click on the “Add People” button in the top right corner, it will take you to a version of the iOS Share Sheet. Choose “Copy Link” and then select “Copy Link” again in the top right corner. 😊 It will upload the note to your iCloud and give you a URL. I'm still trying to figure out how to get the “ID” from the link to use mobilenotes:// (since that ...

Several of Apple's bundled applications are protected by SIP (System Integrity Protection). As a result, they cannot be modified, even with root privileges. The -lO flag for ls will show you if a file or folder has restricted status: ls -lO /Applications/Notes.app/Contents/Resources/en.lproj/DefaultFonts.plist -rw-r--r-- 1 root wheel restricted,...

I find myself often needing to write a date before the divider line. Inspired by @Muthu's answer, I made the following Applescript: on run {input, parameters} set _Date to short date string of (current date) tell application "System Events" keystroke _Date keystroke return keystroke "-------------------------------------------...

Open Notes and go to an existing note or create a new one. Right-click in the body of the note. A menu opens and one selection is 'Spelling and Grammar'. Clicking on this selection gives you a sub-menu with selections for spell checking. Select the one you want.

If you haven't got backups of your device, it is very unlikely that you'll be able to retrieve these notes after 8 months. If you've left the device on the shelf, powered off for those 8 months, there's a slim chance - but if you have used the device, it is extremely unlikely. You'll have to take the iPhone to a lab that does recovery from the flash storage ...

Is there an option to save notes to iCloud? Yes, in system preferences-> iCloud. It seems I cannot import a pdf to notes. You can. The regular method of File-> import->import file, won't work. You can drag and drop multiple files into a note. Scripting. That would be a task for AppleScript. How to import the notes to new Mac? If the same Apple ...

You will not lose them be enabling Notes under iCloud settings. After you enable the Notes feature under iCloud settings you can ...

I just tried that on High Sierra. The Check Spelling was Check-marked. So I clicked on it to uncheck it. Restarted Notes and it remained unchecked.

Based on viewing the drawing footage in slow motion, it appears the new Apple Notes app in iOS 12 is using Apple's Predicted Touches technology, which makes an educated guess as to where future touches on the display will appear so the developer can temporarily pre-draw the path there. This explains why the latency now appears faster than OneNote, which ...

You can’t for a couple reasons. Networking works while the device is locked You can’t operate the device until it’s unlocked Your best bet is to power off the device immediately and take it to where there is no WiFi to which you are pre-connected (power off that WiFi that are set up or move away from them all). Also, consider if you have cellular service, ...

Google account access is true a web browser. or apps that have access to it. it is at https://account.google.com/ Open Safari and set it up, go to Notes and add it. You are adding Google services not Google account it self. You can sync it with Mail, Contacts, or Calendars.

When iOS Notes creates a PDF, it will scan the page to only print the content it needs to and not a lot of blank space. The fact that you do have a lot of blank space indicates that there is something on the right side of the page that has been drawn (maybe a small dot or line) and Notes will see it as content to be converted, giving you the large white ...

As per the current implementation, it is not possible to attach images and any other file/media supported by Notes app on macOS/iOS via the iCloud Web client. There is no control in the Notes Web app UI to attach images/supported files, neither does dragging and dropping image(s) work. Although the lack of feature is not directly mentioned, the help ...

You can share it with yourself simply by sending it too yourself, either via email or messages, then copy the link. Apple really should make it easier to copy the link, for personal use. Or: Here’s How and Why to Share Apple Notes With Yourself

I edited @Sam 's awesome answer regarding his Step 2 but here it is just in case the peer review comes in too late: The Share button may be disabled as soon as you click Copy Link. You must then enter at least one contact (an email address or a phone number) in the Add: field. Note that the contact must be different from the current iCloud user on your Mac,...
