With two note objects, when I tried to connect with arrow, a connection line appears, but no arrow. I have tried removing the connection and creating it again with arrow, and this does not work, either.
It's very odd because if I create a new object to point to, then there is no problem creating the new connection with arrow. Somehow the bug seems to be associated with the object to which the arrow points.

Is this the right place to report bugs? I noticed the bug hunt forum is locked.

Hold down Option while dropping to create arrows.

Good tip!

I wouldn't know if it weren't shared.

I tried to add a new note "below" my current note, but the shortcut Shift+Command+down don't work. Am I doing it wrong?

It's Ctrl-Cmd-Down. The "^" symbol means Control. It's the full arrow shape that signifies shift.

Also, that is for a new connected note. If all you want to do is stack notes in a list, hit Cmd-Return on the selected note.
