At first I was puzzled. All my notes from the Android devices were in bold and shown completely, while the Desktop notes were only showing the first line.
Than I have noticed that the Desktop starts the new note in the body of the note. If you want to add a title, everything is fine. Otherwise, the app will automatically add a title which is the first line stripped of some characters.
The Android app has the same abilities when it comes to editing, but it defaults in the Title line. More, the Title field is in no way marked, it has to be guessed with experience.
