Apologies if there is one, but this is a list of the bugs that are driving me nuts and if not fixed I will, sadly, leave:

iOS bugs

  • Copying a bullet causes it to disappear and cannot be pasted
  • Sometimes note titles are muddled up with note contents
  • Images from iOS Photos often do not import and are not visible
  • Clearing the cache doesn't always work
  • Font size cannot be changed (even though it can here!) and makes it hard to use
  • Shared notes cannot be deleted and often cause syncing errors
  • Support only has one answer: reinstall
  • Odd font sizes compared to desktop versions
  • Note lists can suddenly become blank or display huge gaps
  • Background syncing doesn't work
  • Recent notebooks doesn't work consistently
  • Tables are a joke
  • Wrote a note using stylus and it was completely lost

Mac bugs

  • Stretched images
  • No strike through button (unlike above or in windows)
  • Inline viewing doesn't work consistently 
  • Can't edit PDFs
  • Massive data loss if you scroll too fast
  • Preview of notes does not always appear in the Sidebar
  • Pasting text from a note header into a table causes the table to malfunction and text not to appear
  • Delete column doesn't work (I know!)
  • Images clipped from iPhone now showing sideways in the main notebook view (correctly in the sidebar)
  • Cannot un-bold some bullets
  • Copy and pasting a group of bullets only pasted one of them
  • Drop down menu for notebooks randomly disappears when trying to move a note to another notebook
  • View inline does not work properly, and when importing them the setting is not remembered
  • Note contents that are in shortcuts do not show up in the main window, you have to go into the relevant notebook and select it for it to display
  • Notes you are working on just disappear from the main window (only visible online) even thought he sidebar shows some of the text
  • Adding hyperlink often doesn’t work
  • View inline does not work on import
  • Notes randomly disappear (especially when syncing)
  • Annotation doesn’t work on long PDFs - the text will not load properly and boxes cannot be drawn, they jump around
  • Annotations can’t print - they all try to exist on one page that gets infinitely long and hard to read
  • Zooming annotations corrupts text

Windows bugs

  • Emailed images are often stretched
  • Dragging note to shortcut bar deleted it
  • Order of shortcuts will not stick
  • Sync changes keep regressing
  • Using dashes to produce a straight line no longer works.
  • All text notes changed to the default font and size when installing causing all notes (thousands) to be in the wrong format
  • Moving a folder created a stack I didn't ask for
  • Cannot remove a notebook from a stack
  • Font preferences are not saved and don't work
  • Dragging icons to the tool bar doesn't work
  • Moving tags up the hierarchy rarely works
  • Search is USELESS

Hi.  What's your timescale,  because most of these are probably in development but are unlikely to be released in the next month or two. 

(IMHO 'reinstall' is a sensible first step in teching anything on a mobile,  and quite a few things on a desktop.)

My point is I've been waiting years and things are getting worse, not better.  And the product shouldn't require constant reinstallation for £40 a year. So I'm giving it until Christmas. I'm already playing around with OneNote, sadly.
