Task.Notes field is not text (

I'm using the latest build which is supposed to have fixed a bug where the notes field comes out in an RTF format. This is still happening. I have a notes fields with little more than 'this is notes' and it comes through looking like Chinese.

Is there something I'm missing?

I’ve just tested the v3.0.0 which claims to have resolved this. This still doesn’t work as I’d expect. I’m just looking at task.Notes property. It is still chinese. Is there something else I need to do to look at the Notes property. I’ve attached my single task test example with one line of basic notes.


Did you try the two readonly properties...


to get RTF or


to get Text.

Yes, we have introduced two additional properties in Task class: NotesRTF which reads the RTF notes and NotesText which extracts the plain text from Notes RTF data.

Thanks and Regards
