Note Annotation Object

The Note annotation object (ANNOBJECT_NOTE) is a rectangle with a shadow border and color background (yellow by default). It contains a character string with font properties. The text will wrap on word breaks within the object's specified rectangle. With the automated functions, the user clicks and drags to specify the rectangle in the current window. A dialog box then lets the user enter the text.

The class for Note Annotation objects is LAnnNote.

For information on flipping, reversing or rotating annotation objects, refer to Flipping, Reversing and Rotating Annotation Objects.
