- 6You can move the cursor to "New" and click "Document...".This will create a new document. You can also do this with the shortcut "Ctrl" + "N". Alternatively, you can click "Open..." to open an existing document from the "File" menu as well. For more information, refer to our tutorials on how to create a new document and on how to open an existing document.
- 8First, click "Note Tool" in the vertical toolbar on the left side of the window.The "Note Tool" icon looks like a sheet of paper with a folded corner. However, when you select the tool and go back to the workspace, you are unable to do anything. Note the settings at the top. You can see that you need to have "Type Tool" used. This is a capital "T" icon in the toolbar.
- 10Then, click and drag a text box.For more information, please refer to the video on how to use "Type Tool".
- 12Click the type box.You can start to create a note. This is useful if you are trying to communicate with other people working on the same document, especially with people working on magazines, books, and publications. You may have there quite a lot of text and images. Most importantly, "Notes Tool" makes life slightly easier by letting you work in a team by leaving notes.
- 22Click the cross icon to close the window.As we work within the text box, you can have text inside as well. You can also include notes what you've written. This tool is quite useful for big documents where a lot of people or teams participate. If more than two people work on the document, it might be more reasonable to use the "Notes Tool" instead of email to communicate. It's a very convenient way to let everyone know what's happening.Advertisement
