We'd like to remove it because we're minimalists and when everything is organized properly into notebooks, the notes tab is still listed on the sidebar and is not in any way how we organize our system my mass list. we could turn on if needed but WE WANT TO REMOVE IT!!! it even has the option and its greyed out as if its telling us it's possible... so we obviously want to do it. I know its been years since this was made but its still unresolved. I hope things can be looked at again.
