    Hi,
    Does anyone how to add a title to notes in the Notes app?

    Presently, the first line of the note becomes the title for the note which is really annoying.
    I would like to keep the title separate like in any other notes app.

    make the first line the title, then write your note on the next line... ;)

    Many of my notes have content that I need select all (cmd+a) and copy.
    Then the title get copied as well! Then i have to unselect the title and waste time on it!

    An obvious answer is, "Use any of the other notes apps". If that's not a satisfactory answer, please explain why not.

    That's not a flippant reply. Seriously, if Notes.app doesn't do what you want, and you know of other notes apps that do what you want, then why use Notes.app?

    just highlight everything with the cursor EXCEPT the title and then copy & paste...ie drag over the text you want, copy it.

    OR...find a notes app that does what you want...

    You can't do what you want in Notes. It's a basic no frills app.

    MS "OneNote" may be worth a look as well.

    Notability for Mac has a separate title I believe. But it hardly qualifies as a typing app, more of a handwriting app.
    I'm using SimpleNote, but there too - the first line automatically becomes the note's title.

    I tried OneNote, I think it's a really cool app - but also not exclusively typing as in a text editor.
