HI Bear Team,

just testing your wonderful app, and am wondering if there is any possibility to change font colours or highlight bits & pieces of my text?

thanks for your help

    Hi Maria,

    it is not possible at the moment, but we have plans for that, I'll bump the priorities of those by 1 ;)

    Thanks for your feedback.

    This is a feature I will like to have - ability to colour fonts & highlights.

    I am testing bear atm in my aim to say goodbye to Evernote. So far I'm loved every aspect of bear, with except of the above feature. :)

    I'm trying to switch from evernote, but for my master TODO list I need colours to help with prioritising (e.g. red is urgent, green is under control)

    Ready to drop my coin on a subscription as soon as coloured text is implemented, because otherwise it looks like Bear is a good replacement now that Evernote has gone off the rails.

    +1 on colours/highlighting. Already a paying member, I would really like this feature

    Hi Everybody,

    I just want to inform you the just released Bear 1.2.2 comes with an highlighter/marker feature. You can activate the marker by putting :: before and after the sentence you want to highlight or by using the relative button or shortcut.
