Yes, same here. I agree, extremely frustrating. There is nothing more basic to note taking than the ability to write plain text, but in my case it is sometimes even deleting the word the cursor jumps over making it near impossible to write anything like this.
Thanks so much for the list of improvements! I also agree with some of the others who mentioned shortcuts for the homescreen - Very much miss being able to save a tag or notebook icon right on the homescreen to jump right to it!
