To-Do the past few weeks has been randomly deleting random tasks or notes within tasks.  It is driving me crazy because I know i put something in and a few days later it is just "poof" gone!  I try deleting, re-adding, restoring from deleted but I have no idea why this is happening and I have lost so many notes or tasks.  Has anyone had this happen and have a solution?

Yes I've had this annoying thing happen to me as well, mostly when I am copying text into the notes section of tasks. I've noticed that normal cut and paste functionality doesn't work well within the notes section. Sometimes I can paste text from another source into the notes section, only to find that it has disappeared five seconds later. I keep repasting it, and it keeps disappearing. Then at other times it works fine. It's the intermittent part that is most annoying. One possible Band-Aid solution that might have some use is based on my observation that the note section seems to prefer to have items added at the top of the notes section. I seem to have more problems when I paste text Midway through an existing note, and fewer problems when I simply add a note at the top of an existing note section. Not very elegant but it seems to reduce some of the annoyance and error factor. Hope this helps

@IKai2000 yes, also happening here when trying to add update notes to todos.  I hav tried varying the place in which the new part is pasted but with no success.  

 

Thanks for the tip thorugh, good to know it is not just me.
