Hi there, I tried doing a search on Google and this forum but found nothing so I'm starting this topic with my question.

Last night from my iphone, I accidentally tapped the voice recorder button in a note I was typing. It created a 1 second voice recording within my note. I cannot figure out how to delete this recording from the note. From my iphone, I can only play the recording--there is no option to delete it. Clicking the X in the corner of the Quicktime window only closes it.

From my computer, I can see the recording embedded in my note, but again, can only play it. If I click to edit the note, the recording does not appear in the editor for deletion--only the text is present.

It's not the biggest deal in the world, but I'd like to be able to see my note without a useless Quicktime voice recording plopped right in the middle of it. Can anyone help me fix this please?

In the IOS client, you should be able to backspace past the audio note to remove it (when editing the note). You can do the same thing from the Mac client.

No cursor comes up on my iPhone 4 so no possibility of backspacing it! Now what do I do? Thinking the mic icon would open a start page, I accidentally created two audio notes and can't delete them! Only just downloaded the app and not a great start! Please help with this cos it's really annoying.
