Notes

Just like in the physical world, Notes in Quoll Writer allow you to make notations about parts of the text. Quoll Writer provides two types of notes. The first is a standard note, like a To Do or Needs more information, akin to making a note in the margin or putting a sticky on the page, the second type is an Edit Needed Note that allows you to select part of the text and mark is as needing to edited/revised later.

Notes appear in their own section and can also be displayed in the Chapter list.
