[BUG] Spooky "ghost" line of text in appearing in another note

edited October 22 in The Archive

OK, this is an odd (Halloween) bug that I haven't been able to consistently reproduce...yet. When using the mouse or keyboard arrow keys to switch between my notes list, a line of text from the previous note appears in the note I switch to on the same line. Here's a simple example:

Note A

Note A line of text number 1.
Note A line of text number 2.
Note A line of text number 3.
Note A line of text number 4.
Note A line of text number 5.

Note B

Note B line of text number 1.
Note B line of text number 2.
Note B line of text number 3.

When switching between Notes A and B, Note B looks like the following:

Note B

Note B line of text number 1.
Note B line of text number 2.
Note B line of text number 3.
Note A line of text number 4.

It seems to only happen when Note B is shorter than Note A. It continues to happen after I quit and restart the application. It happens when switching from Note A to Note G and Note M to Note F. It happened while using macOS Mojave, before upgrading to Catalina.

I have attached two screen shots. In some cases the "ghost" line of text haunting Note B (couldn't help myself) is incomplete and cut off (see attached images). I'm not a programmer, but might this be a memory allocation/usage issue? I will continue to test this.

Thanks,
