I have imported a ton of notes. And one of the things I miss from Bibleworks is having dedicated font buttons in the note editor: English, Greek, Hebrew. Each one was able to be set to a particular font and size. 

It's a time-consuming pain to have to highlight text, click the font button (what good does the "default" do?), scroll all the way down to my preferred English font (happens to be Palatino), apply, hit the size, go down to 14. Would be so much nicer to select text, hit "English" and have it change to my preferred font and size. Ditto for Hebrew (SBL Hebrew) and Greek.

I'm quite frustrated with the "Default" because it doesn't seem to do anything, I don't like what it's set to, and I can't change it.

Thanks for the feedback, Ben. This is a good suggestion. We've had preset styles on our list for a while, and it sounds like that would meet your needs (assuming we include preset styles for Greek and Hebrew and allow you to customize them).

You can change the default notes font (Source Sans Pro) in Program Settings, but I just noticed a bug that we're not respecting that setting in the editor right now (only in the preview in the notes list). We'll work on a fix.

Phil Gons (Faithlife):

really hope we can have this. If we'd have a handful of styles that could be customized (and with hotkeys to assign styles, please!), it would make our lives so much easier. Additionally, I'd like a style named "Title" to automatically get assigned to the first line of the note (think iOS notes).
