For about 1 month have been unable to edit the notes (body) of about 10% of contacts on different pcs, different profiles, same Office 365 account. Turning off cached mode made no difference. New profiles didn't help.  Forcing reversion from Monthly fast channel to semi-annual didn't help either.


Not getting problem in the cloud Outlook. 

 

Local workaround was to create new contact and copy/paste the body into the new one, then delete old contact. Didn't seem to recur on new contact.

 

3rd tech found it in the known issues the other day.

 

Maybe will be fixed in next monthly release.

Update:  March 5th 2019: now most of my contacts have the problem.  Two monthly fast updates later still have the issue. Just worked with tech support for an hour so so.
