"New Experience" Notes

In the "New Experience" area, which parallels iOS and Android LDS Library Apps, there is an issue I've noticed with notes. Any carriage returns placed in the notes while in iOS do not show up on the web site in the "new experience" area. It appears that the web visualization of the text does not recognize carriage returns. This nullifies the formatting that was placed there when the text was first entered in iOS (for example, paragraphs, etc.).

Is this a permanent limitation of the way the web version interacts with the LDS Library version, or this is this something that can be fixed?

I'd recommend sending this as feedback using the feedback link at the bottom of LDS.org (or the New Experience pages). It's most likely a bug.

How do you create a note in the first place?
Where is basic stuff like this documented?
Thanks for any help you can supply.

See my response here to your post in the ~3 weeks studying with the New Experience thread.

I appreciate you responding to my question but I cannot get your directions to work: "Do a click-and-drag operation with the mouse to add a highlight. Or should should be able to do something like just double-click a word and you'll see the user interface."

I must be misunderstanding something fundamental here because I don't get it.
I tried clicking and dragging several different words in my current notes but I just get the selection shadow. If I double-click a word I get ... the selection shadow. I've never tried highlighting something in a note before on my phone or in Chrome but I cannot figure out how to do it.
What user interface?
Is there any documentation for any of this?
Thanks for your time.

...and I tried creating a note from in an article on the website and it worked fine. I guess there isn't a way to create a blank note from within the Notes page.

A new note has to be associated either with selected content in a chapter/article/talk, or with a notebook. I think what you want is a note in a notebook:

1. Go to the Notes page (Study.LDS.org > Notes, or Notes.LDS.org).
2. Click the Notebooks tab (third icon from the left, in the left sidebar.
3. (If you don't have any notebooks yet) Tap the "+" button to create a notebook.
4. Open the notebook you want to add the note to.
5. Tap the compose icon (square with a pencil) to write a new note.
