I have been there. The hard road of finding the adequate tool for notes.
Used Evernote for long time, but found it useless, specially because they don't update it much and rich-style editing is a pain. Today I only like the OCR features to search for attached images content.
Now I'm pretty happy with Bear, bad thing they don't support tables, and also I'm considering return Apple Notes, it's been updated with great features lately and encrypted individual notes is great.
Seems that most of Apple users like Bear and Apple Notes :)
