    The Notes pane holds rich text, yet on export the formatting information gets lost, afaict. Italics applied through Format>Font>Italic, for example.

    I’d be happy to ‘pretend’ that note text is plain text and to use the same Inline and Paragraph Styles I use in the Editor, but the tools available in Editor aren’t available in the Notes pane. (Menu items under Edit and associated keyboard shortcuts, e.g.).

    This situation would be fine if Notes are not exported, but for someone like me using Notes for Footnotes, this becomes a small irritation — having to enter those style markers by hand each time.

    Am I missing something?

    Same problem in editing academic footnotes. I have to enter them by hand and it is frustrating. And it is worse that after an year this question has no answer. Too much involved in Dedalus?

    My solution has been to use Keyboard Maestro, at least for inline styles. It's a great tool.

    KM will even allow automating the making of notes and the generation of unique reference markers for notes, which for me proved easier than the perl magic worked by Sarah here: http://www.the-soulmen.com/board/comments.php?DiscussionID=201

    Great tip. I used to copy/paste a citation key from BibDesk and the very it with two numbers or letters (smith2009s3). But it was frustrating. I also tried to copy/paste the full citation from bibdesk (with a template) but when I try to edit the project notes and text are inverted. It happens in correspondence of this sequence >#fn#< , invisible in Ulysses, but found in the RTF. It seems to open and close the inversion and is found only in correspondence of citation copied from bibbesk. Help please!!! I have a paper to present tomorrow!!! How can i without notes???

    Can you please send a copy of your Project and the exported RTF to sales@the-soulmen.com? I currently cannot reproduce this here unfortunately. Is the problem also appearing with PDF export?

    @jb Hi. I tried to use KM to do what you say it's possible. But, shame on me, I cannot do it. Would you please give me some tips?

    ndin-
    I don't see a way to post an image, so if you can give an email address I'll send you what I do. Easier to send a screenshot of the KM panel than describe.
