Re-style all existing Notes


I’ve got a document in which various items have Notes. I want to increase the font size of all the Notes. Can I do this at a stroke? How?

(OmniOutliner 5.4.2 for macOS. I have to admit to basically not understanding styles in this application at all, but I’ve poked at that functionality and utterly failed to do what I’m describing. I feel as though if someone could solve this for me it would get me on my way.)

Thank you.


Have you tried modifying the notes style.


Hi. Thanks for your reply.

Sooo, ok. I was about to say yes, I have tried that, and it did nothing to change existing notes. But now that I’m digging deeper I realize that the problem is just certain notes—which I think were pasted in from another source.

It’s dawning on me that I thought I had pasted in the notes without formatting by using alt-shift-cmd-V, which is the appropriate command in Pages and Word. Unfortunately in OmniOutliner this command has the opposite result: it apparently preserves the formatting.

Anyway, thank you.


There is a keyboard shortcut that will strip all formatting except for the default styling. Go to the affected notes and press ⌘-Control-Delete.
