A Note object is an active text-based list that can be placed in a Draftsman document to provide additional and optionally targeted information that relates to drawing views.
The entries in a Note list can include Parameters that are available to the project document and individual list entries can be referred to by placed Callout objects. A Callout–Note reference behaves as an active link, and therefore, changes to the Note entry (such as its list number or border graphic) will be reflected in the Callout label.
The Note object's visual style and its list entries are configurable in the Properties panel.
A Note list object is available for placement in a PCB project Draftsman document from the Editor as follows:
After launching the command, the cursor will change to a cross-hair and a default Note object is attached to the cursor. Move the cursor to the desired position then click to confirm the Note placement.
The position of a placed Note object may be graphically changed by selecting the table object in the design space then dragging it to a new location. To resize a selected Note object, drag any of its editing nodes to set the width – the list text will automatically wrap to remain constrained to the modified area.
Properties page: Note Properties
The non-graphical method of editing a Note object is available in the Draftsman Properties panel, which provides editable style and content settings for placed Draftsman objects.
To open the Properties panel and access the properties of a placed Note object:
If the Properties panel is already active, click on the Note text or title to access its properties in the panel.
The Properties panel supports multiple object editing, where the property settings that are identical in all currently selected objects can be modified.
