So just like reinstalling Windows once a year, I try to reinstall Notes too. One of the drawbacks with complete reinstallation, is that you loose settings, amongst them Workplace and Bookmarks.

One of the features that have been missing in standard Notes, is the ability to import- and export directly to Excel. Yes, you can write some code achieve this, typically via OLE Automation (CreateObject ...), but that needs a programmer every time.
