Add Notes

Add notes anywhere on boards


The Notes tool is used to add text notes on VFE boards.


Notes boxes have a fixed-width approximately the same width as cards displayed on the VFE. While they can be used anywhere on a board, they are ideal for adding notes to accompany chosen cards.

You can change the size and font used across all Titles and Notes (and Annotations) boxes from the Styles Menu.


Adding a new Notes box to a VFE Board

There are 2 ways to add a new Notes box:

  • using the Notes toolbar icon, or
  • right-clicking anywhere on a board and selecting “Add Notes” from the pop-up menu.

  1. Move your cursor to blank space on a VFE board where you wish to add a Note
  2. Right-click

Repositioning a Notes box

The solid purple drag-bar above the text entry part of the Notes box, is used to click-and-drag the Notes box around the board. The bar will fade out a few moments after you have clicked away from the Notes box. Hovering your cursor over an existing Notes box will bring up the drag-bar.


Editing a Notes box

You can edit the contents of a Notes box any time by simply clicking in the text entry section and editing the notes as required.


Deleting, Duplicating and Copying a Notes box

Right-clicking on the purple drag-bar brings up a pop-up menu with four options:

  • Duplicate: creates a duplicate of the Notes box.
  • Copy to Big Board: creates a duplicate of the Notes box over on the Big Board
  • Copy Text to Clipboard: puts a copy of the text in your computer’s clipboard for standard copy-paste functions
  • Delete: permanently deletes the entire Notes box (cannot be undone)
