Selecting Text in Notes Takes Forever

Selecting text in the preinstalled “Notes” app takes forever. Long-pressing a word it turns it blue, but then it takes 5-15 seconds for the little bars to appear to extend my selection. This didn’t use to be the case a few weeks ago. My notes are fairly small. I do not have this problem with other apps note-taking on this phone.
Is there something I can do about this?
