What are Note boxes ?
Note boxes allow you to add free text to a process in order to capture additional descriptions, questions, to highlight changes or guide users through the process. They can also be used for adding icons and images to a process. Note boxes are very flexible and can be used for almost anything you cannot do with a What or Why box.
Annotate a process
To annotate a process simply drag a Note box from the left bar on to your process. By default the Note box will display as a sticky note with a coloured background.
Simply add the text you want to display in the box and then click away from it to view it on the process.
You can also add a Note to a process using a keyboard shortcut. Click and hold the N key on your keyboard and click once with your mouse to create a note.
Notes are used to create header and title bars on a diagram, or within the template.
To create a header bar add a Note box to the page and set the background color to transparent.
Use markdown Header 1 code (#) at the beginning of your title text to create a title:
#This is my title
Will appear as:
This is my title
Change background colors
To change the background color of the note box use the color field below the text entry section. You can type in a color name, such as 'blue', or you can use hexadecimal colors typically found in webpages. Typing 'transparent' will make the background transparent.
Note box background is semi-transparent by default. To change this open the stylesheet for the individual Note, or for the whole process, and change the transparency on the Note.
