Taking Notes and sketching

Let's see some information on Ęgald, our hero. When you select the sketch plugin, you will see a folder called "example". Open it. Inside there are three notes, one is called "Aegald". If you select it, a face and some text beside it appears. Ęgald also seems to possess a scroll. Select that item. If you like to add a few lines of text in the sketch, you can click inside the window and just start typing. The window works as a regular text window (without mark-up). If you rather put some stains on the scroll itself, you can do so by pressing the Shift key and pressing the left mouse button at the same time. Then move it around - a black line will appear. If you like to remove the stains again, you can do so by pressing the right button instead of the left.

If you are totally dissatisfied with your additions, simply select another note and then come back. Everything is restored. Be warned, sometimes you may not call this restoring but rather losing! Save any changes you want to keep before you switch notes.

You can create new notes by clicking the Create button on the popup that appears when you click inside the tree view on the left. If you have select to create a directory, a sub-directory is created. If you do not like the order you see, you can rearrange things by drag-n-drop, provided the directories are writable. The notes you create can either be edited as text, or you can draw by holding the Shift button down and draw away with your mouse. In case you want to erase things, press the right button instead of the left button on your mouse. Text is not effected by drawing and vice versa, so they are kept disjoint. In fact they are held in different files as well, when you press Save.

If you like to create more classy notes, you can create HTML pages with an external program and copy them into a sub-directory of the notes-plugin. But be careful, not the full HTML 4.0 standard is understood, only HTML 3.2 is supported. But colour is okay, as well as standard mark-up such as boldface. This cannot be edited inside the UGMT. The notes can be included for character Synopsis in the char-plugin. They can also be exported through the export plugin. Each note has a bottom line, which can be checked for export. (See the next tutorial for exports.) This export-information is not saved, to avoid accidental exporting.
