Additional information

I understand why you don’t like it but. I don’t know if I consider this a bug or a feature improvement.

If I recall the favoriting feature that bookmarks replaced didn’t exhibit this behavior. If that’s true then I’d argue it’s a bug. Also I suspect it behaves contrary to expectations for most users given that in my experience other apps with similar bookmarking features don’t treat the bookmarks as separate entities when searching.

I’d agree this is a bug; this creates redundancy i.e. clutter in the quick switcher options, which makes me not want to bookmark as many notes.

renamed and moved to feature requests.
