I'm trying to get notes to appear sequentially on the notes page in sync with bullets on the main slide. For some reason the last note text never appears:

Here's a minimal example:

\documentclass{beamer}
\usepackage{pgfpages}
\setbeameroption{show notes on second screen = right}
\begin{document}
\begin{frame}[<+->]
\begin{itemize}
\item One
\item Two
\item Three
\end{itemize}
\note<1->[item]{Something}
\note<2->[item]{Something else}
\note<3->[item]{And something completely different}
\end{frame}

\end{document}

This only happens when I use a default overlay specification <+->

I moved the [<+->] specification to the itemize environment and all starts working again. I think this is the best solution since this way whenever you should need another frame option (eg fragile) you could specify it.

\documentclass{beamer}
\usepackage{pgfpages}
\setbeameroption{show notes on second screen = right}
\begin{document}
\begin{frame}
\begin{itemize}[<+->]
\item One
\item Two
\item Three
\end{itemize}
\note<1->[item]{Something}
\note<2->[item]{Something else}
\note<3->[item]{And something completely different}
\end{frame}

\end{document}

The same result is obtained specifying the overlay inside the itemize environment

\documentclass{beamer}
\usepackage{pgfpages}
\setbeameroption{show notes on second screen = right}
\begin{document}
\begin{frame}
\begin{itemize}[<+->]
\item One
\note<1->[item]{Something}
\item Two
\note<2->[item]{Something else}
\item Three
\note<3->[item]{And something completely different}
\end{itemize}
\end{frame}

\end{document}
