Creating note entities

Notes must be applied to a span of text. They cannot be inserted into the text without the cursor having selected something, although they will be in the future.

  1. Highlight the text that you would like to add a note to.
  2. Click on the toolbar icon "Tag Note" or right-click on the text and choose Tag Note.

  3. A mini-editor will pop-up, enter any information that you would like in the pop-up.
    There is a specific way to add text within tags in the mini-editor. To do this, you click the tag twice in the structure/markup tree, so that its entry is italicized (this means the tag's content is selected). you can then start typing, which will add text content to that tag.
    Note: When using the mini-editor you can add XML and RDF tags just like in the main editor, though the toolbar options are limited (e.g. you cannot choose to "save" or "validate" the note). The structure and entity panels on the left mimic the structure panel in the editor and displays all the tags you added to the note in the mini-editor.

  4. Once you have entered the text into the editor, you can begin to tag the document. Adding structural tags and entities to the document.

  5. If/When you decide to add entities to your note, a "mini-editor" will popup.

  6. Once you have finished creating your note, click on Save.

You have now created a note in your document. You can see in the image below that the note appears in the document, currently the note does not format correctly in the CWRC-Writer.
