New in version 2.67 (February 22nd, 2011)

  • To add or edit the note for entity, just choose the “Edit Note” item from the context menu, or just double click the row in the not view.
  • The note view is resizable and you can hide it by dragging it to rightmost border. The note can still be shown in the floating tooltip.

  • Start Selecting from Outside - Another useful improvement is that you can start selecting content from outside of the editing plot area.
