Style customization / userstyle.css

Joplin for Desktop 2.9.17 (prod, darwin) on a MacBook pro running Ventura.

I am brand new to Joplin after long and sometimes disastrous experiments with Evernote, Noteshelf, Apple Notes and a few other apps. Joplin has everything I need, but there are some basic issues I haven't figured out despite searching here an other places.

In different places I've seen references to userstyle.css, but I can't figure out where the css files are stored, and what exactly is being styled. Can someone point me to documentation on this? It would be much appreciated.

I have other questions but this is the important one for now. Many thanks.


Thank you for the quick and very clear response.

Just a comment, but it would really be nice to have the Rich Text editor mentioned in that guide as well (or at least stated clearly which CSS file its styling belongs to) :slightly_smiling_face:.

I mean feel free, its a wiki post so anyone can add that detail.

I have added a header "Markdown Editor and Viewer Pane" as well as a "Rich-Text Editor" section and I have separated the bit on how to identify the CSS elements, hopefully to make it a bit clearer.

At the time it was written you could not alter how the Rich-text editor looked using CSS. I was not aware you now could and as I do not use the Rich-text editor I have never tried it since. If it is now possible please feel free to add it to the wiki page. However could you please add it in its own "Rich-Text Editor" section rather than re-write everything? Thanks.

Edited - Because I changed the wiki page a bit more...

Honestly, I'm not sure the Rich Text editor deserves its own paragraph (since finding the elements and editing the CSS files is exactly the same), however here is my attempt of a screenshot in the same style as the current one, just for the Rich Text editor.

Please feel free to add it to the Wiki if suitable :slightly_smiling_face:.


@tomasz86 thanks for the picture. I have edited the wiki page and included your image as well as your suggestion not to have a Rich-text editor section.
