Using the 'agent' designator

Agent actions can refer to the attributes of the current agent using the 'agent' designator, whilst smart adornments can similarly use the 'adornment' designator. For example:

Query: $Status=="Important"

Action: $Color=$Color(agent)

This agent gathers all "Important" notes and sets their colour to match the colour of the agent. Note that this is different from

Action: $Color=$Color(this)

since "this" refers to the note being gathered, and is also different from

Action: $Color=$Color(parent)

since "parent" is the parent of the original note, not the parent of the newly-made alias.
