Harness the power of Evernote for Mac, a popular cloud note-taking and note-sharing tool. This course begins with a look at ways Evernote can help you note and track important items and then build and work with notes and collect notebooks for sharing. Author David Rivers also shows how to take and store photos, screenshots, and even video in notebooks. Plus, the powerful tagging and search features help keep your notes organized and accessible. The course also covers the notebook sharing and protection features, so your privacy is maintained at all times.
As you continue to work with text notes here in Evernote there will be times when you want certain items to stand out. You want your notes to be attractive, especially if you're going to be sharing them. Well, in that case, there are a number of formatting options we need to explore. We'll do that as we continue to work with our latest note that we've just created in a previous movie. The Get Productive - Things to Remember note, and if you didn't follow along with me in the previous movie, not to worry. You can select any text note you have or simply create this note before you begin. To, first of all, format any text that needs formatting, it needs to be selected.
Let's select everything here in our note from the first item, prioritize items, all the way down to the end. With everything selected, we can start formatting now, and conveniently, across the top of our note is the Formatting toolbar. You'll see the default font. You can click this dropdown to select from other fonts that might be installed. I'm going to go down to Verdana, and you can see that looks a little bit different. It now appears on my toolbar. I might like to bump this size up a little bit, too. We can try 14. We could try 18.
That might be too big, so let's go back to 14 and select it. Next, we can adjust things like the text color. The color button when we click it gives us a selection of colors from our colors dialog. Now, if you're familiar with this dialog on the Mac there are number of different ways to select colors, we can go to the color wheel, we can go to the sliders, we can go to the swatches where we started. There's also crayons over here if we wanted to choose from those colors. So, lot's of different options.
I'm going to go back to the swatches here and go for this blue color. And you can see what's happening here. My font size and color have all been changed and I can close up the Colors dialog. Other things we can do, we can bold, italicize, and underline our content, we can also change the alignment. With everything still selected, notice that Left Align is the default. Everything's lined up on the left-hand margin. If we wanted to center items we could. We could Right Align as well.
In this case, Left Align makes sense. And we can also turn on Bullets and Numbering. The next two buttons are for Bullets. Let's apply bullets, very cool. Let's try numbering, if the orders important, numbering might be a good idea. And the nice thing about automatic numbering is if we take something away the numbering is automatically, we don't have to adjust those numbers. For example, if we take out plan phone calls by clicking and dragging over it and hitting Delete on our keyboard, notice the numbering has been adjusted automatically for us. If we want to undo that we can go to the Edit menu and undo, Cmd+Z is the keyboard shortcut, like in any other app.
Let's choose Undo typing, brings it back, and again the numbering has been adjusted. I'm going to go back to this, select everything and go to bullets, I prefer bullets, right? We can also add checkboxes, tables, how about a separator? Let's just click after the last item, we can hit return and turn bullets off. We no longer need them. It's only turned off for that line and add a separator. There we go. Now, we could continue with something else under the get productive things to remember note. We can add Audio. We could also, if we wanted to, take a snapshot if you have a camera attached, Attach things.
We'll get into all of that later on, but for now, you have a good idea how to format your text to make it stand out when you need to.
