  1. The iPad Notes app’s “newest operating system” is an ongoing frustration: addresses, dates, telephone and account numbers, etc., now appear on the screen — and in print — in color and underscored instead of in all black. These productions look pretty sleazy.

    The areas can’t be reformatted; either the entire screen switches to maps or boxes spring up asking me to chose “face time audio,” etc. I’m assuming there’s some link with Contacts, but neither HP nor Comcast can help. I’ve unsuccessfully tried every possible combination of settings and checked user manuals to get it to print in black again . . . Can anybody please, please help?
