Notes Editor

The Notes Editor can be found in various windows in doogiePIM. Not only in the Notes section but also in the comments tab of a Contact record, an event details or a Noteboard Note Block. All the note editing functions are available to the relevant record where the editor is located. The Notes Editor can contain rich formatted text, images, tables and special objects eg: Annotations.

To aid control, insertion and processing of the rich text in the editor, there are toolbars located above and below the actual editor itself. Some windows don't show the toolbars, eg: a doNote has all the toolbars invisible. However, you can shows each toolbar in turn and even drag them to a different position. The positioning and use of the toolbars depend on how you use the editors, so the preferences are saved until next time you enter the same editor, the toolbars return to where you last positioned them.

helper To Show or Hide Selective Toolbars

Right Click on the editor area and choose from the context menu "View/..." then choose the toolbars or panels you wish to show or hide. A check-mark next to the item indicates if it's already visible.

If you have used out other application, TexNotes Pro, you will recognize a lot of the icon command on the toolbars. However, you should have no problem if you have used any other word processor. The formatting commands to bold, italic, underline, font style etc are typically standard on most word processors, but doogiePIM has some extra commands and the best way to find out what they do is to try them out.
