Display of notes compartment - format
« on: May 22, 2019, 09:38:59 am »
When displaying the notes compartment in a class in a diagram (by Compartment Visibility > Show Element Compartments > Notes)
to show the compartment name (notes) and the notes themselves.

How do I hide the name of the compartment?

Event though (Start > Preferences > Diagram > Appearance > Italic Note Element Text) is not selected the notes are displayed in a light grey italic.

How do I get the display to be regular black text?

Selecting from the element's context menu (Compartment visibility > Element Notes > Render as formatted notes) gets rid of the buggy looking italics and odd text wrapping, but does not remove the unfortunate grey text.

I'm sure I've asked this in the past, but could not locate it.

I guess you can't. I tried using a linked element note which "sort of" worked. You could as well use a shape script, but that would have its quirks too. So if I'm right with my first assumption your way out only leaves a feature request then.

Simon,

Check [Ctrl+F9] | Standard Colours.   You can set the colours of the notes there.

Hello,

Just for your information. On the version 15, the name of the Note compartment is not shown any longer.

HTH,
