Editing Notes

Double clicking on a note in the note selector, or creating a new note, will bring up the note editor window. This is simply a very trivial text editor, allowing use of keyboard arrow keys and the mouse to position and edit text. It also has keyboard bindings for many of the simple emacs movement commands.

At the top of the notes editor are three menus. The leftmost is the File menu. This contains the "Save", "Delete" and "Exit" options. Next to this is the Type selector. This meny name displays the currently selected note type. To change type select the appropriate type from the Type menu. The final menu is on the right hand side - the Help menu.

Listed underneath the menu is the creation and modification dates. The creation date if fixed when a note is created, and will never be changed after that point. The modification date is adjusted every time a note is edited. (Simply viewing a note will not update the modification date, but saving changes to it will.)

Underneath these is the note text itself. For convenience, the first line of each note is shown in the note selector window. If you have several notes of the same type then it is recommended that you make the first line something distinguishable.
