Found it...Update to: Was super good; now dead

Update: I was unable to find MNP anywhere until I did the 4-finger swipeup on my trackpad. There was a tiny version of it. So I clicked on it and it didn't come to the forefront. I thought, perhaps, it was off the screen, which seemed odd since I've got three monitors, LG ultrawide, MBPro, iPadPro. So I opened the monitor preferences and began moving my three displays all over that virtual space. Finally, in the opposite configuration I normally use, there it was (after clicking it over and over in the menu bar for every configuation, of course). After much trial and tribulation, I was able to drag it to my MBPro and now it seems useable again. I've no idea how it ended up off the screen for all three monitors after the update.

I left my computer this morning and got a splash screen, something like "thanks for downloading MiniNote Pro," which I've used for years. I closed the splashscreen and set about doind my work. I tried to access MNP and nothing. I tried again, nothing. I quit it using Activity Monitoer and restarted, nothing, rinse, repeat, quit, force quit, nothing. When I click on it in the menu bar it highlights and that is it; no text entry fields show up at all. I looked around my desktop, just in case I had left it opened and anchored somewhere; if it's there, I can't find it (it's not there). This update killed MNP on my MBPro.

Favorite App

This is hands down one of my most-used apps. I don't use cloud syncing, so I haven't had those issues; the app works great for me.

Some features that would be immensely useful is the ability to group notes into folders (this would help me clean up long lists of notes) and the ability to insert bulleted and numbered lists.

I'm also not a huge fan of the design; I'd prefer something a bit more minimalistic. But the app works great, barring minor issues with organization of and within notes.

This is one of those apps I can't live without.

Honestly, when I get a new job, or buy a new Mac, this is one of the first apps I have to download and install and upgrade to Pro so it can sync. I can't live without it. There was a bug in the update yesterday and it didn't work and I felt my entire life crashing down around me. I keep all notes in here. EVERYTHING! MY LIFE. And then they fixed it this morning. Phew. They need to add a back-up feature so that life-ending feeling won't happen to me again. Can ya'll do that? Please??
