Thanks very much for the explanation – it’s very reassuring ;-)

However, it might be an idea to do what so many other apps (e.g. Obsidian) do, namely give users the choice between manually prodding a “Check for updates” button and setting updates to “Automatic”?

I suspect that would solve the upset!

I like Notes, but do wish it had elegant punctuation (e.g. “smart” apostrophes) and a more consistent treatment of fonts (emboldening something changes both the size and type of font, for example). But it’s still early days!

Keep up the good work!
