I can create strike-through style text on Windows Evernote.

Windows Evernote

But cannot find the button on Mac version

enter image description here

  • "to strikethrough text, highlight the text then CMD-T. Click the strikethrough option at the top" I don't have a mac in front of me to test, which is why it isn't an "answer" – Raystafarian Feb 10 '12 at 15:59
  • @Raystafarian It works. Post it as an answer. But why it does not show in the bar? – onemach Feb 10 '12 at 16:05
  • It's not an implemented shortcut yet :( – Raystafarian Feb 10 '12 at 16:17
  • To prevent questions about justified alignment, which doesn't have a button either: It's in the menu, Format » Alignment » Justify – Daniel Beck Feb 10 '12 at 16:55
  • heh, none of the answers here work in Yosemite 10.10.5. You can do the format menu -> styles -> struck through but select, apply and done don't do anything, nor do they add them to the favorites. WTF – FlavorScape Sep 30 '15 at 0:01

To strike-through text, highlight the text then CMD + T and click the strikethrough option at the top

2015 update: right-click > Format > Strikethrough

2015 KB Article still shows no keyboard shortcut.

Shortcut Now Documented in Knowledge Base

2015 update r2: The first update back in April of this year noted the 2015 KB Article still showed no keyboard shortcut for strikethrough.

As of today (and maybe before today, I haven't checked) - it does show the keyboard shortcut -

Ctrl K

for strike through, matching the other answers officially.

Cmd+Ctrl+K works for me in V3.3.1 but wasn't sure when this was added.

    Where did you find this information? It works for me. Thank you. – JD. Jun 27 '14 at 17:04

To summarize as of Evernote v6:

The accepted answer no longer works, because the floating Fonts window (invoked with ⌘T or Format > Show Fonts) in recent Evernote versions does NOT show the underline and strikethrough options anymore.

The keyboard shortcut noted in other answers still works, however: ⌃⌘K

Overview of options for accessing text-styling functionality:

  • [doesn't show ALL styles, notably not strikethrough] toolbar at the top of a note
  • shortcut menu for selected text: Format > ...
  • menu: Format > Style > ...
  • keyboard shortcuts: see menu; as of Evernote 6.0:

test-styling kebyboard shortcuts

I believe Cmd+Ctrl+K still works even with the version 5.6.1. If it does not there are at least two possibilities:

  1. It conflicts with some other shortcut. Go to Evernote Preferences Cmd+, and choose the Shortcuts tab. In my case it was conflicting with Quick Note, so I changed it to something else.
  2. Evernote changed the combination. Go to "Format > Styles" in the mac menu and check the up-to-date combination as pointed out in the other answer.

Hover on top Mac menus and go to Format > Styles. All the shortcuts are listed. Even if they change, you can always look them up this way.
