MACRO: New Apple Note, v1.1

PURPOSE

This macro will create a new Apple Note and open it. The new note can be optionally floated and positioned.

Monterey includes an Apple Notes feature called Quick Note. Since this macro provides similar capability, its value is less obvious for Monterey (or later) users. However, if the Notes Preference Resume last Quick Note is checked, one could use the native Quick Note feature for an ongoing scratchpad and, in tandem, use this macro for collecting information that should be segregated from the Quick Note information.


SETTINGS

local_FloatNewNote : 0|1
Determines if the new note is opened in a separate window or if it is displayed in the note folder.
0 = no
1 = yes [default]

local_NotesFolder
The destination folder for the new note. If the folder does not exist, it will be created.
_INBOX [default]

local_FloatPositionAndSize : X Y H W
Four integers separated by spaces: top-left X position, top-left Y position, Width, Height (all in display percentages)
0 10 50 25 [default]
