Evernote drop-down font list

“Evernote is a suite of software and services designed for notetaking and archiving. A “note” can be a piece of formatted text, a full webpage or webpage excerpt, a photograph, a voice memo, or a handwritten “ink” note. Notes can also have file attachments. Notes can be sorted into folders, then tagged, annotated, edited, given comments, searched and exported as part of a notebook. Evernote supports a number of operating system platforms (including Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X, Chrome OS, Android, iOS, Windows Phone, and WebOS), and also offers online synchronization and backup services.” — Wikipedia (English) entry retrieved 08-JAN-2012

Evernote is a useful application for taking and making notes. On the Mac, the list of fonts in the drop-down list for a note is taken from the “Web” font collection. To add fonts to the list of fonts in the drop-down list, open the Font Book application and add fonts to the “Web” collection. For example, to add additional fixed-width fonts make the “Web” font collection look like this:

font-book web collection

Restart the evernote application if it is already running. Then the drop-down list should look like:

    I’m glad I found this post. What a huge pain in the @ss, though….Evernote should find a different way to render the default fonts.
