System Attribute List

System Attributes tell the System how to display, handle and export Notes and links. System Attributes are defined for every note, agent and adornment (though in the latter two cases not all attributes are used/applied).

Occasionally, Tinderbox releases may add some attributes not described here in aTbRef. These attributes are generally experimental and not intended for use by ordinary users. Such attributes will either disappear again or be formally adopted and only then described in aTbRef.

In documents used across many successive versions of the app be aware that system attribute may retain old system attributes no longer generated in new documents; these legacy items will cause no harm.

As current versions of the app do not normally define legacy-supported attributes in new TBX documents, the count of system attributes here may be c.10–15 items more than the count seen for a new Tinderbox document.

The attributes are broken into several groups and when listed in $DisplayedAttributes or the Note Info window, attributes are listed alphabetically within the groups. The groups are as follow, and are shown in the order they are listed in the UI:
