1) Why does text paste as 9p, when the note file is set to 16p, and typing in the very same spot does show up as 16p? If it had showed up much larger than the setting, I would have assumed it was an unavoidable  consequence of my large font size in the resource -- but smaller??

Yes, I can use Shift-Opt-Cmd-V, instead of just Cmd-V, which makes it less of a nuisance than it used to be -- it's just that I keep forgetting to do that, plus I don't understand why it happens.

2) Neither the Title nor the Content field can handle larger font sizes when you first add text:

(Typed in; 16p; font slider at the middle, or perhaps one step below.)

3) The note file heading is also set to 16p, but clearly is not. Looks more like 9p. It doesn't respond to changes in that setting, nor to font slider changes. This is a regression from before L5: 4.6 or 4.5. My memory has faded, but I suspect it may have happened at the same time as http://community.logos.com/forums/p/53903/395515.aspx#395515.

Can someone [on Mac] check if these issues occur with the new note editor in the beta as well?

I can't answer your question, but if I remember I'll see the behavior is consistent on the beta when I get home. I have it on my personal machine.

I can't replicate this. If I add a note, and change the font size to 16 it types in that font size in teh note title, and note body.

You can't change the font size of Note file title on Windows either. I'm not sure if it is by design or a bug. There is a difference between Mac and Windows in that when you highlight the note title and go to click the font size, the note title is deselected. This makes me think font title size isn't intended to be changed, and that the bug in Mac would be that the text stays highlighted when focus is set to the font size button. This may be different in the new text editor, so again I'll try and remember to look at that when I go home today.

The only intended way to change the size of the text for the note title is via the slide bar in the panel menu. I can confirm that is not working on the Mac. I'll file a case about that, and the deceiving quality to the note title remaining highlighted when selecting the font size button.

I just checked on my personal machine. You have to press Shift+Control+command+V to paste in the format that is in the note file already. I can't explain why, other than we wanted the option to do both probably, and this is how we chose to implement the alternative pasting function.

Believe that should be Cmd-Opt-Shift-V. The combination you gave does nothing.

Problem is—This pastes without the bibliography information. So we either get unwanted font-size or incomplete pasting.

This new Notes editor is a real horror story.

I miss-felt where my thumb was on the keyboard. My apologies. You're right it is Shift+Option+command+V.

Tommy, please don't miss the next part of my post. If you use this key combination, you will post with the formatting already in the note, but you will also lose the bibliography. One of those needs a different key combination.

I didn't miss it. I've learned that the behavior where pasting text does not automatically matching the note's formatting is a bug, and a link to this thread has been attached to the case. 

Looks as if I spoke too soon. My apologies for jumping the gun on this one. I spoke with development directly and was informed that the behavior of retaining copied formatting is normal and will not change, and the complicated shortcut to match formatting is also normal (you'll see it in all text editors on Mac OSX). Finally, the reason the citation information is stripped is because we are pasting, with that shortcut, only the plain text and then applying whatever formatting is already in the note file. This is obviously sans citation because it was pasted as plain text. This is a issue with OS X that cannot be avoided. 

I'm sorry for the inconvenience, and the original misinformation.

Always good to know which behavior is the bug, so Terminex does not kill the wrong varmint Geeked

I want to make sure I'm understanding you are talking about the title of the note, rather than the title of the entry. Below is an image. The highlight bit is what I took to mean "note file heading." Please let me know if you mean, what in my text says, "Note entry title."

Is the highlighted text in the image the note title you are referring to, and are you trying to adjust the font size by selecting the title, and changing the font size by clicking the font size slider?

Development has decided to not, at this point, work on fixing this bug.

The issue of the note file title (not the title of individual notes) not responding to font slider changes will be fixed in 5.1 Beta 9.
