Adding new text note via menu bar greyed out

Hi! When I try to add a new text note via the menu bar the button to add it to DT is greyed out. Only after I click away and open the menu again I can finally add it. Is this maybe related to location services? I am on macOS 13.2.1 (22D68) and DT3.9.


Same issue here.


+1 but I have discovered a workaround:

  1. Start typing a note
  2. Observe that the Add button is greyed out and unclickable
  3. Click on one of the other “data type” icons in the row above the text field (that is, one or more of the “Sound”, “Movie”, “Capture Region”, “Capture Content” icons)
  4. Click on the “Text” icon again
  5. The Add button is now clickable (in my experience anyway)

(I am using DTPro 3.9 on macOS 12.6.3)

I had a similar experience, but the other way round:

  1. initially, the button was enabled
  2. I clicked on the left-most icon (Navigation)
  3. The button became disabled.

Tx. Finally, I know what “the Sorter” is.
