Glad to know that I'm not the only person who hates the automatic check list thing. I frequently refer to my past lists (work assignments and notes) and cannot stand strikethrough. My work around is to create a table and put check boxes in a second column. It works adequately, but is not as streamlined as it used to be. I agree with others that we should have the option to disable the automatic conversion of lists using checkboxes to check lists. Beyond frustrating!
I really wish they'd add this feature. I like to do one note per week for my work journal, but would like to be able to have an anchor type link within a note so I can quickly navigate to each day or specific content without so much scrolling. A little less tweaking with existing features and a little work on something that's been asked for repeatedly for 7 years would be nice.
