Up to now I have not used ‘Notes’ very much. (This is accessed and left by pressing Shift-Enter. It puts additional details below a bullet and you can hide or reduce them to showing only one line when not in focus.)
The first compelling reason to use it is to hide long links. If you scroll through a lot of items, and one of them is [Short Description](really really really long link), it’s annoying to suddenly have the markdown unfold and you now need to scroll through a really really long link.
Solution: put that markup in a note, so you just see:
- Short Description
Then as you scroll down it doesn’t expand, and only expands if you toggle into the note.
The main other use I see for this is when you are setting up a todo list and the items in Note are for commentary on the Todo item. BUT, in general I would instead to make a subitem to provide commentary. The outlining tools are much richer than the note tools, which is limited to markdown.
Do others have other thoughts on the feature?
