Characters deleted while I'm typing

Steps to reproduce

Creating a new note, typing in it, then selecting different characters using a cursor with Apple’s Magic Keyboard.

Expected result

Expected to be able to select a character with a cursor to delete it, or continue typing or editing the note from that character onwards.

Actual result

Had an insert isse. Characters disappeared as It yped them, based on wherever my cursor was. It was like I’d pressed the “ins” key on a windows keyboard, however I’m using a Magic Keyboard and I don’t believe there’s an optin for that, or a shortcut to enable it.

Restarted the app and everything was fine - it behaved as expected.
