Should note content ($Text) be fetched automatically from an online URI (as specified in $URL).

If true the content is automatically fetched when the note is opened.

Once $AutoFetch has run, the note containing the retrieved data has its $ReadOnly attribute automatically set to true.

AutoFetch runs no more than once every 5 minutes. From v6.4.0, the first update (rule cycle) after (re-)opening a document will always run any AutoFetch operations; this assist with de-bugging AutoFetch operations.

See also, $AutoFetchCommand.
