Add a Text Box/Notes to a Container or Workflow?

Asteroid

Hello,

 

Is there a way to add notes to a container or a text box in a workflow as notes/documentation?  I am going to have several containers that will be near exact copies, but some will have slight alterations and I'd like to add notes for future reference so a future user (or myself) will be able to identify which containers have the alterations and which do not.  Not looking to enter it in the container caption but a floating note if possible.

 

Any ideas?

 

Thanks

Hi @djodts you can use a comment to add annotations.

You can also on any tool by selecting the annotation button in the tool configuration add in annotations as well if you require.

Hi @djodts 

 

The Comment tool on the Documentation palette is available for you to use.  You can drop one anywhere on the canvas to add notes.  There's no way to anchor it to a specific control, though, so if you move the control, you'll have to move the comment manually.

Thanks @JS420  and @danilang 

 

I completely overlooked the Documentation section.  I wish I could pretend that I didn't ask this question, but hope it's helpful to someone else as well

 

Thanks again!
