Bug Description

In the web client, when creating or editing a copy note, the "Public Note" checkbox doesn't stay checked if you close and re-open the modal window.

But if you check the box, click "OK", then click "Save & Exit" on the copy editor, it will save the "Public Note" value.

Can confirm the behavior described in the description and also that the workaround will result in the note displaying.

Also, when attempting to change a public note back to private (by unchecking "Public Note", clicking "OK", then clicking "Save & Exit"), the change doesn't save. I mention this in case it gives clues to the cause of the other problem. But if unrelated, it can become a separate bug report.

Or actually, make that "first thing Thursday".
