I wanted to ask if there is a way to edit the "writing direction" to all the notes in a spreadsheet file?
I know I can fix it in itch notes separately, but can I do it for all the notes at ones, like "style editing"?

Unfortunately, while you can set the writing direction for a multiple cells at once, there is no way to set the writing direction for multiple notes. The reason is that notes are separate objects (that is, they are like a parallel set of cells) that are hidden and so there is no way to select those hidden note objects.
One question for you: is the "Right-to-Left" toolbar button visible? Although it does not solve your problem, I use that toolbar button to quickly set writing direction. If that toolbar button is not visible, you can make it visible by selecting the Tools :: Options menu and in the dialog that appears, select the Language Settings :: Languages item, check the "Enabled for complex text layout (CTL)" checkbox at the bottom, and press the OK button.
