I've noticed something new in the Notes app in Mountain Lion, that didn't used to happen when Notes were in Mail in Lion.

 

If you start a new line, type either a "•" or a "-" and then hit the space bar, the line gets indented and converted into a proper Bulleted List, or Dashed List. While this is fine within the Notes app on Mountain Lion, it's not so great on the iPhone, because the iOS 6 Notes app doesn't allow you to make/edit Bulleted Lists or Dashed Lists.

 

So, my question is, is there any way to stop Notes in Mountain Lion from automatically creating Bulleted List and Dashed Lists?

    I realize this is quite a bit after the fact but I ran into this thread searching in vain for the same answer & felt compelled to share for those in a similar scenario.

     

     

    Use: "opt+space" after entering the dash

     

     

    this will buypass the autotext feature.

     

     

    Yet another one of those embarasingly easy & ever so obvious-after-the-fact solutions

     

    Overall I am a fan of Apple simplicity however it can become frustrating when there's no off switch for the auto pilot....
