Bug? Design flaw in Note object?

The Add Anchor object is part of the Anchor control. It should be part of the Note object instead.

If you delete all anchors of a Note, the Anchor object disappears. There's no way to add a new one. The workaround:

  • Copy the text of the Note,
  • Create a new Note with an anchor,
  • Paste the text into the new Note.
  • Delete the un-anchored Note.

Can you show screenshots of what you are seeing/what you are doing?  i just created a note, added anchors, deleted all anchors but was able to add additional anchors.  Am I understanding you correctly?

OK, I found the "add anchor" choice on the kabob menu (three dots at the right of the Note window.)

Thanks, David.

(It WOULD be nice if the "add anchor" didn't disappear from the main Note window.)
