I cannot figure out how to edit a User Tool. The help files talks about opening tools in a edit window. I can see how notes open in a edit window, but how do I get tools to open in a edit window?

You can just start typing at the point you want to edit, or click in the pane and choose Edit User Tool from the Selection menu or the right-click menu, or enter command-U on Mac, control-U on Windows.

I guess I need to know the difference between User Note and User Tool. Under the Selection menu the option is Edit User Note. Do notes become tools?

Yes, the menu items depend on the currently active tab or pane.

Thanks to you, I now understand User Tools and how to create and edit them. However whenever I make an edit and save the tool, I get what seems to be an error message, but the message screen is blank and the update is not saved.

 

Here is the message that appears…

By opening the User Note from the File / Open menu, I was able to make the edits and save. Now everything seems to be working OK.
