Editing the Notes Fields in Any Database
Editing the Notes Fields in Any Database

The Notes fields in all the database programs for the 200LX (i.e., Appointment/ToDo, NoteTaker, Database, WorldTime, PhoneBook) are somewhat unique in that they allow up to 32K bytes of information to be stored in each note field. The Notes fields are great for storing information: not so great for editing the information contained in them. There are very few shortcut keys to edit a note. Here are the shortcut keys that do work:

CTRL+FN+END : jump to the end of a note,

CRTL+FN+HOME: jump to the start of a note.

CTRL+Right/Left ARROW: jump forward/backward to the start of a word.

There are no shortcut keys for such common tasks as deleting whole words. The best you can do is highlight a word or phrase by holding down the Shift and pressing the Arrow keys. Then press the DEL key. There is no shortcut to highlight whole words or paragraphs.

The best technique for editing large amounts of data in a Note field is to use the F2 key to Save the note to a disk file and then open that file in Memo or another editor such as PalEdit or VDE. When the editing is finished and you've saved the file back on the disk, you can switch to the Notes field. Press the F4 (Clear) key and then press the F3 (Insert) key to bring the text file into the field.
