Forum Question: High Sierra Contacts – Is the Notes Section Truncated?

Since I have upgraded to High Sierra I have noticed that my Notes in the Contacts app are truncated after six lines. The information is still there if I do a ‘select all’ and paste into another app. Thus this is a visual problem only – but annoying. Has anyone else noticed this? Is there a fix?

    I’m not seeing this. When I look at a Contact in High Sierra I see as many lines as will fit in the window. Even if I shrink the window to show the least number of lines, I can then use the arrow keys to get around and scroll it but placing the cursor in the notes and using the down arrow. I can add as many lines as I want.

    I have some screenshots to share. All works fine on iCloud but is truncated on my laptop.

    Ken: It have been able to get this to behave like you say, but only by creating a new contact with just a note. But the whole note is there, it is just a visual glitch. I can easily see the rest of the note by editing it, moving the cursor to the bottom (out of sight) and pressing Return.

    Gary: Great idea, and it works while on that contact but once you move away and then return it is truncated again! Must be a glitch somewhere as it is OK on iCloud. I will report back if I ever discover what it was.

    Ken, I have the same problem, and have reported the same to apple today. They have escalated the matter for a fix. However I am working to find a work around, and the only way I can show the entire note field is to select Edit / insert the cursor anywhere in the note field and type any key, presto the entire note field will show with the scroll bar on the side.

    Indeed, I found the identical problem in the beta version of High Sierra. Hard to believe the developers didn’t notice this. My work around is to select all, cut, then paste. I then have the full note for editing / viewing, though I have the same display problem the next time I go to that same contact. For now, I’m holding off upgrading my main computer until this is fixed.

    I just put High Sierra on my Mac and this issue with notes is a real problem. Hopefully it will get fixed soon! I love putting info in my contacts!
