Title: Can I create a note/adornment w/in action script
Post by SteveS on Jul 25th, 2014, 8:09pm

Hi All,

Is it possible to create new notes, adornments from action script being executed within the Rule of an exiting note?

Thanks
Steve

In short no. I recall the original design decision was that this offered too much scope for runaway mis-codes generating endless new notes. It is also the case that action code can't delete notes (though it can move them elsewhere, e.g. to a 'trash' container for later manual cleanup).

Don't overlook that prototypes can bequeath children and that action code can make note $Text than can then be manually exploded to many new notes.

If you have a strong use case for supporting note creation, I suggest you drop an email to Eastgate (info@eastgate.com).
