Comments Editor

The Comments Editor shows the item’s comments text in a much larger workspace.

Type and arrange any plain text information you like, typically relating to the parent item.

Comments text for any single item is limited to a total length of 4096 characters. For your convenience the total running length of the comments text is displayed in parentheses in the title bar.


You can optionally insert mini-forms anywhere in your comments text. They are blocks of plain text designed to look like forms that can standardize data entry across multiple items; for example items for several credit cards.

You can add your own mini-form files by saving them to the …Courer\usr\{your user folder}\miniforms folder. New mini-form filenames must end in “.txt” and contain only unformatted plain text.

Courier installs with two default mini-form filess: creditCard.txt and driversLicense.txt.

The default credit card mini-form is shown above.
