A basic note window with an uncustomised view with the sidebar hidden (non-default) has the following elements, working top to bottom:
- Caption bar with standard OS window controls and displaying the note's title (Name).
- The main text window. It can be simple unadorned text as shown here or marked up with emphasis and use different fonts.
- Feature visibility menu icon. A submenu icon, click for a menu of choices to toggle sidebar/title/key attribute visibility.
- Make Link tool. Turns the cursor to an active link ready to click on a target note or parking space. This tool is retained in the old position so as to allow link creation when the sidebar is hidden.
If the window is not big enough to support a sidebar the Views menu item to toggle the sidebar is greyed out with the caption "Too narrow for sidebar". Resize the note horizontally to re-enable the sidebar toggle feature.
Key attributes table (at top of text panel)
A table layout of attribute title/value cells. Values can be edited and the list re-ordered by drag/drop of the title cells. An item is deleted by dragging it out of the table. An item is added by using the Key attributes button in the sidebar or setting $KeyAttributes, or dragging a selected attribute from the User or System panes of the Attribute dialog. See more on the ket attributes table. Displayed value boxes only support the MacRoman character set - Unicode data may not display properly although underlying Unicode data if not affect as long as the box is not edited.
