I created a note with the Notes app in El Capitan and want it to be visible on my iPhone. Although I can see my iPhone notes on my Mac, I cannot seem to see my new note on my iPhone. Is there a way to copy the note from my Mac to my iCloud note folder?
Use the mouse commands to drag/drop
This is more work than it needs to be, but it will work.
Note that this will move the note, not copy it. copying is as simple as making a new note in the destination, then moving to the original note, selecting all, copying, and pasting into the new one. Perhaps theres a way to use the mouse commands above to copy instead of move, but I don't know it.
I followed your second suggestion
I selected all the text in the note on my Mac and copied it to a new note in iCloud. This seemed simpler than the drag-and-drop method you described. I've used that method to add mailboxes to my favorites in mail but it didn't seem worthwhile here.
Thank you for the help and suggestions.
