Notes Page Type Tutorial

The Notes improvement was made for the old Notes feature. Currently available only for Android. It's a great feature where you can store your first moments of inspiration. The new page allows you to create text notes, lists, and more. An important option is the ability to change the background color of notes to help you stay organized.


How to setup:

For adding the new native Notes page to your app access its Dashboard. Go to Edit Pages menu then click the "+" (Add New Page) button OR Click Here.

From the list of the available page types select the Notes and click the "NEXT" button.


In the next step you'll need to specify a name for this page and click the "Add Page" button. Once the page is added, you are able to proceed with editing it.
 
 
General description:
 
Note page allows users to create new notes by clicking the add new note (+) button, view a list with all existing notes, open earlier created ones by clicking on any note item from list and edit each of them. User can also delete any note and customize its color. 
 
How to create a new note:
 
To create a New Note user can enter by clicking the “Add new note” button from previous page. On top of each page a back button is displayed, which allows user to go back to notes list and also save the note.

To start editing notes user must click “Edit note” button from the left-bottom side of the screen. Once it is clicked user can start inserting text, image, checkbox.
In the bottom of the screen a menu with five buttons is available. 
 
 
Undo button. Has function to Undo last action/change, for example, if user inserted a sequence of text character by character it will remove last added character (received as last action made). 

Redo button. It has the opposite function of the Undo button - to redo what was undone by the Undo button. The Redo button will restore only what was undone by the Undo button, not by the backspace(delete) button.

Add an image button. On its click a menu will appear with two options of selecting an image from Gallery or taking a new photo. If it's the first time when user clicked the button, application will ask for permission to access camera and gallery. After selecting an image or taking a photo, the image will be inserted in note.

Checkbox button. User can add a checkbox by clicking the fourth button with a suggestive icon (checkbox icon). To add another checkbox user can click again on this button or on Enter. To go back to simple text (without checkbox) user has to click on backspace.

Color picker button. By clicking any color the note theme will change: background, text and menu color. Default note color is white. The note color will be displayed in the list of notes from first page.

Edit button. To exit from editing note, user has to click on back button from top-left side of the page, or on the native back button of the device. Only in this case note will be saved.
 
Notes list:
 
First page is a list of existing notes. To create a new note user has to click on a specific button for adding new note (blue button with + on bottom-right). After creating a note it will appear in the list. User can open an existing note by clicking the chosen note from the list. 

A note from the list will display first image from the note (if it exists), a sequence of text(if note contains text). On the bottom of each item the date and time when the note was created or last modified is shown. On top of the page the title and the back button is displayed, which allows users to exit the note.
 
How to edit a note:
 
On Edit note page user can view the content of the note and edit it by clicking the earlier mentioned button Edit Note. Bottom menu is the same as on previous page. The Undo/Redo buttons can undo/redo only what was changed from the time the note was opened, changes from previous editing can’t be restored.
On top-right side of the page user can see two new buttons which are accessible in Edit Note mode. 
 
 
There is a Delete button. On clicking the note will be deleted and can’t be restored. After that the notes list will be shown.
 
 
Here's how the Notes page looks like on an Android device.

Hi Ethan,
I would really like to change the color of the toolbar (I think that's what it's called) on my NOTES page, from the default black to my custom color #996600. Is there any way for me to do that by myself, or is there a way to pay to have that done? (and if so, what would the ballpark cost be?) THANKS in advance for any help you can provide me!
Bev

Thanks so much, Ethan. This is my first project so all is new to me and I will open a support ticket to ask about this, then.

in the SC app previewer, the notes page shows "no notes". It does not bring up the keyboard when tapped.

how am I to test if this works?

thanks
Hello Geoff,

Please note that this feature should not be used on TAB.

Regards,
Aurel
