1. Add a new note
2. Type some text
3. Press CMD+Enter to create a new stacked note
4. Click the canvas / press esc to exit the new note's edit
5. Press CMD+Z

The second stacked note disappears as expected, but the text entered in step #2 is deleted and reverts to "New Note".

All the best,

How odd! I'm certainly not seeing that behaviour. Following your steps, I'm still left with my first note after the CMD-Z keystroke.

Can't write right. Don't care neither. Er...either.

I'm able to reproduce it; it only happens if you haven't typed text in the second note.
