The Note Editor enables you to create new notes or modify existing ones. Notes are simple free-form text blocks that can be optionally pinned to dates. These can contain anything you'd like, such as recipes, shopping lists, journal entries, daily devotions, or anything else you'd like to keep track of, and that doesn't make sense to be defined as an event or task. A full-featured WYSIWYG editor is used to enter the content of notes, which can include formatted text, links to files or web pages, pictures, and more. There's also no limit to the length of a note. When using the Ultimate version, custom data fields can be defined on the Custom tab to contain any data that doesn't fit well within a note's text description.
The Note Editor allows notes to be created, viewed, and modified.

Basic Information

The calendar and category associated with the note are displayed at the top of the Note Editor window.



One or more categories can be assigned to a note.

Toolbar Commands

A toolbar appears at the top of the Note Editor, providing a number of commands.

From left, to right, the commands are defined below:

Pinning Notes to Dates

Notes can be optionally pinned to dates. When pinned to a date, the note will be visible in the Calendar View, unless the View menu option "Show Notes in Calendar" is disabled. When unchecked, the note will only be visible in the Notes List. To pin a note to a date, check the "Pin to date" box at the bottom of Note tab in the Note Editor, and then either type in a date or select a date from the drop-down button.

Notes can be pinned to dates.

Note Description

The note text can be entered on the Note tab using a full-featured WYSIWYG editor.

Custom Data (Ultimate Version Only)

VueMinder Ultimate provides the ability to define custom data fields for notes via the Custom tab of the Note Editor. Custom data can also be imported or exported, and will sync over a local network when using VueMinder Server. See the Custom Data documenation for more information.


Any number of file can be attached to the note (as links), using the Files tab. The files will appear in the Details Pane when the note is selected. Files can be opened from the Files tab by double-clicking or using the Open command on the toolbar and right-click context menu. More information can be found here.

Notes can be linked with other notes, tasks, events, or contacts by using the Links tab. When a link is created, it becomes 2-directional, meaning a backlink to the note will be automatically added to the linked item. Linked item details will be shown on the Links tab. For example, when a note is linked to a contact, the Links tab will show the associated contact's email address and phone number. More information can be found here.


The appearance tab enables an appearance to be specified for the note. This appearance will override any associated calendar or category appearance. To reset a customized appearance, click the "Reset Appearance" button, or uncheck the appearance override checkbox. More information can be found here.
