Android : editing opens note at the bottom

Hi there,
I noticed that on Android, when editing some note, it opens with cursor at the bottom of the note.
I understand it could make it easier to add something at the end of the note, but it is a bit unexpected behaviour : When I open any document in any editor, it always open at the top, isn’t it ?
And in my case, I use my note to add new items (e.g. the name of a book I may buy later) at the top, so that I have the latest at the top…
May be it could be an option to add in parameters, so that user can choose between both behaviours ?
Thanks.

Another option would be a button in the bottom right corner that will scroll the note to the top.

I have the same issue. I have many notes where i add info to the top constantly. Now I have to scroll on every note. It’s inconsistent with all other apps, jarring and tedious.

It’s being worked in in this pull request:

For me a “go to the top”-Option in the Editing-Menu would be great.
I often adding content to the top. Now I’m scrolling up with swipes and sometimes I select text and deleting that content accidentally.

Agree, I would love this function for Android.

I'm sorry to reanimate this corpse, but... I've got the exact opposite request :rofl:
In other words, unlike @pled, I usually add to my notes at the bottom, because many (granted, not all) of them are going to be shared as PDFs to other people, and, naturally enough, they expect the text to go from the top to the bottom (i.e. newest things at the end). While for some things I agree that having the cursor always at the top is a good idea (I'm thinking of things such as technical changelogs), for more typical, non-technical usage it's more common to put the newest things at the bottom...

So, ideally, I guess that this ought to be a toggle somewhere on the preferences, as suggested elsewhere.

Maybe such a life hack will be useful for somebody:

<div id='up'/>

- [down](#down)

some text
text
text
.....
.....
text
text
some text


<div id='down'/>

- [up](#up)



thanks but this works only in reading mode, not when editing.
