    I've been off Boostnote for a while and after updating to 0.16.1 I discovered a return of the behavior where checking a checkbox scrolls the page to the top. It's basically this same behavior reported under issue #3077 two years ago and confirmed that it affects Boostnote on both Catalina and Big Sur. Since I don't see a new ticket on it and this update has been out for 9 months I figured it must be "pilot error" or an issue porting a document authored using a previous version.
