How to Change Fonts on Notes.App for an iPhone


Changing the default "Marker Felt" font in the iPhone's (also known as the "Notes" application) is done by switching the keyboard to support a Unicode format (which supports non-Western or non-Latin characters). You can only change the default font from "Marker Felt" to "Verdana" and you cannot add styling features (such as bold, italics and underlining) in the app.

  • Tap your finger on the "Settings" app with your finger. If you are unable to locate the "Settings" app, tap on the physical "Home" button (near the bottom of the iPhone). Tap on the "Home" button again, then type in "Settings" in the search field. Tap on the "Settings" search result with your finger to launch the application.

  • Tap the "General" menu option with your finger, then scroll down and tap the "Keyboard" menu option.

  • Tap the "International Keyboards" menu option with your finger. Then scroll down to the bottom of the screen and tap on the "Chinese (Simplified)" menu option with your finger.

  • Tap on the gray "Off" button next to "Pinyin" with your finger (which is located underneath the "Handwriting" option) until it displays a blue "On" button.

  • Tap on the physical "Home" button near the bottom of your iPhone and locate the "Notes" app. If you are unable to locate the "Notes" app on your iPhone, tap on the physical "Home" button once, then wait two seconds before tapping the "Home" button again.

    Type in "Notes" in the search field, then tap on the "Notes" search result with your finger.

  • Tap on either a previous note within the "Notes" app or the "Plus" sign to create a new note. Tap on the note screen with your finger to initiate the keyboard.

  • Tap on the small "Globe" icon until you see Chinese letters located on the space bar. Type in one letter with your finger to change the "Notes" app default font from "Marker Felt" to "Verdana."

  • Tap on the "Globe" icon again to reset the keyboard to "English."
    Repeat Steps 6 and 7 to change the default font in previous or new notes within the "Notes" app.
