    I changed the font from the handwritten font to a sans serif font on one of my notes on the yellow Notepad. But I don't know how I did it. Any ideas?

    It's complicated and would have been hard to do accidentally, but it's possible.

    When you create a new note, which font does it type in?
    Do you want to change it back, or just know how you did it?

    It has to do with international keyboards. If you have one turned on in System settings, such as Japanese or Chinese, then another button will show up on the keyboard when you're typing in the Notes app. It's a globe to the left of the spacebar. That is giving you the option of typing in English and having it convert to the other language character, but it cant use the handwriting font to do it, so it switches to Helvetica. You can prevent it by making sure that all international keyboards are turned off in Settings -> General -> Keyboard -> International keyboards. You'll know this because there should be a number 1 on the International Keyboards button. If there is more than one, you need to go in and make sure they are all off, including Japanese and Chinese.

    As far as I know, there is no way to change it back to the handwriting font without hacking the app. I know nothing about doing that. But new notes would be in the handwriting font if you change the international keyboard settings.

    Told you it was confusing. icon_smile.gif

    Ok I got it.

    If I start a note using a foreign language keyboard, it is in Helvetica. If I erase that text, the note stays in Helvetica, even if I switch to the English keyboard.

    So that's what I did. I made a note in Russian and then didn't need it anymore. Erased it and used the same note for my exercise routine notes. That's why my exercise routine is in Helvetica.

    That sums it up better than my convoluted explanation.

    Freedom is NOT living within a cage.

    iPhones are caged by default.

    Jailbreak and be free!
