The font size is so weird, and when adjusting it, it will decide to go way bigger than the preview, then when you go to make it smaller again, the pop-up to adjust the font only shows the preview, which is suddenly waaay bigger than it was when you went to fix it. So much bigger that that's all that's available on the screen, and it won't scroll, and the back button doesn't work. Your only option is to close the app, which means you lost any changes you made. Again.

More helpful that other simular apps I've tried a lot easier to use. HOWEVER I'd liked to be able to highlight / change colour of some text it makes it easier for me to find also be able to add a functioning check box would be really cool I write meal plans/goals then I'll write recipes or ingredients or things I can to do to achieve underneath and it all get messy and lost
