iPad Basics: How to Change the Font in the Notes App

Share This:

iPad Notes app

Here’s a handy tip for newer iPad users. If you don’t like the default font in the iPad’s built-in Notes app, it’s very easy to change it.

You don’t have a broad range of choices, but there are 3 fonts you can choose to use with the iPad Notes app. Here’s how to select the one you want:

– Open the Settings app.

– Tap on the Notes item in the left sidebar, just below the entries for iCloud and Mail, Contacts, Calendars.

Ipad Settings for Notes app

– Tap on one of the 3 font names in the Font window – Noteworthy, Helvetica, or Marker Felt.

That’s it. A very basic tip I know, but I see the question of how to change the iPad Notes font come up relatively often in support forums – so I thought I’d share.

Happy font selecting.

  1. A basic tip, yes, but one that comes up SO often it’s unbelievable. People should really explore their settings more, they might find something they didn’t even know they wanted to change!

    There are hundreds of different fonts you can download if your iPad is jailbroken, but this option is still good for those who haven’t jailbroken their iPad yet. Thanks for sharing.

  2. A very basic tip indeed, but one of the very useful ones. Because the standard font on Notes really is horrible. Most people are trying to find a way to change it or are not even aware of the fact they can change it, so they just live with it even though they hate it. Thanks for this basic tutorial.

  3. But how do you change the font SIZE? All of a sudden my fonts have become huge.
