Lesson 1. Getting Started with Notes > Using Dialog and Properties Boxes

Using Dialog and Properties Boxes

Often, selecting a menu command causes Notes to display a dialog box, but right clicking an item usually presents a menu from which one can choose Properties and display a Properties box. Dialog boxes and Properties boxes function similarly in that they both enable you to set options and make specific choices related to the object with which you are currently working. Each type of box contains certain elements that you need to understand in order to use it.

Figure 1.5 shows a sample dialog box. The User Preferences dialog box, which you access by choosing File, Preferences, User Preferences from the menu, contains many of the elements common to Notes dialog boxes. In fact, many of the elements are common to Windows dialog boxes, as dialog boxes are really an element found in all products designed to run in Windows. Table 1.5 describes those elements and explains how to use them.
