Add a multi-line note to an item

It would be nice to be able to add a multi-line note to an item, containing comments, further description etc.

    Feel like this is missing expanded notes. I would often like to see the whole note, if not all the time, at least on hover.

    This might be hard to add since items can be split and joined on-the-fly, so one way to approach this might be to allow SHIFT+ENTER to create a soft line break. Everything after the soft break can be collapsed as a single line ending in ... to expand/re-collapse as-needed.

    Just a thought. I would also like notes, but I really like how everything can be edited almost like a big text blob ... makes managing the todos SUPER efficient.

    I need this feature too! Multiline comments are great for adding context to items. For me too this is the only thing keeping me glued to workflowy.

    I see you've started working on it, when do you expect to release this feature? I will celebrate by going pro ;)

    And also make it - so one can import workflowy - so that the multi-line notes are also multi-line notes in moo.do
    Thats the reason I still use workflowy

    i need it too, but something simple : no box, no windows, just the possibility to add text with a note-style (grey type, reduced font, whatever)

    Yes, absolutely want this. I use a workaround with tags now a dedicated note field would be best.

    Yes!! This is the one thing keeping me glued to Workflowy. I want Agenda View so bad, but for my use cases I just can't do without item notes.
