Today we will learn how to change the appearance or typesetting of your text in S Note. This includes font type, text size, text decoration, paragraph spacing, paragraph alignment, paragraph indent, pre-defined styles, and list styles.
This tutorial applies to S Note on all Galaxy Note series devices, including Galaxy Note, Galaxy Note 2, Galaxy Note 10.1.
Font settings can be accessed by long tapping Text button. And you can put this font setting window on the screen when typing or writing text. This is very handy if you want to change font settings quite often.
The typesetting, or in other words,full text settings window can be accessed in two different ways. One way is tapping this color button in font setting window. Another way is to double tap the text button. Different from font setting window, this typesetting window is fixed and cannot be moved.In typesetting window, you can preview any settings on the top. This gives you immediate feedback to your settings.In addition to font and text decoration, you can access paragraph settings, style selections and choose list symbols in the typesetting window.
First, let’s try font settings.This is the default font: Roboto font, 24 points, black color and no decorations.You can directly choose the colors from the 15 available colors. If you need more colors, you can click the color button to get the typesetting window.
In typesetting window, in addition to pick colors from palettes directly, you can pick colors from other objects, e.g., from a picture.
As mentioned earlier, in the typesetting window, you can access more settings, in addition to more text colors. For example, create a list and choose list style.
You can convert existing paragraph to a list.
Under paragraph settings, you can change the align, indent, spacing and text directions.
Under styles, just like in any word processing software, you can apply the pre-defined styles directly. It seems you cannot define your own styles in current version.
You can apply different font styles, for example, different font, different size, different colors, in one paragraph.
In S Note, the text is always aligned on the bottom in vertical direction, and it seems you cannot change this to align in middle or top.
Fort existing text, you can double tap any words, then the selection handler is available. Drag the handler to the desired locations to select words you want to change appearance. Then select any of the settings, for example, sizing, color and font. The style of text selected will be updated immediately.
Now let’s try the typesetting for text from handwriting recognition under productivity tools.
If the handwriting recognition is used in a text input paragraph, the formatting can be done in the same way of typed text.
However, for textbox, it will not take your current format settings. It always uses its own default settings for any new textbox. So, you can only change the typesetting for them after you finish the writing, not before the writing.
For textbox, you can select it by long tapping any area of the box until the context menu pops out. You can then move it to any locations, and it is not constrained by the lines.
Once the textbox is moved to the desired location, you may enter text input mode, and double click any words in the box. Selection handler will be presented with the word selected.
You may move the handler to select any more words, then formatting the selected text just like the typed text.
You can even continue to type the text to the text box.
You can also type the text, then continue to use handwriting recognition. In this case, it is similar to use the handwriting recognition in your keyboard input.
You can play with the paragraph settings: spacing, alignment, etc.
When you apply any of the pre-defined styles, all your previous settings for the selected text or paragraph will be removed.
Ok, now, I think you know how to change the appearance of your text in S Note. Please try them now.
