Capture ideas

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

Any time you wish to capture an idea or a fact, create a new Note. It will hold all relevant information, including its context or the concepts it logically belongs to. Each Note has three tabs with specific functions.


Note tab: Memo

Collection of notes


Note tab: Properties

The position of the image is the whole Note area (above), or a small part of it (below). Drag the icon or logo to one of 9 positions.




Note tab: Sheets

Note sheets tab


From the available Sheets in the Project Tree, you can drag or double click the ones you wish the Note to be positioned or visualized in. You then will find the Note in each of these Sheets, ready to be contextualized and be related to other Notes. For example, below is a Sheet with the Note, related to other Notes.

These networks of thought have all kinds of uses, when they grow (develop) and combine.


This is a natural process.

When thoughts develop, they need to be reused.

Notes can be reused again and again in different Sheets.

Each time they carry along all their properties.


You can change all properties to fit your current understanding.


Note reused at different dates


So, we have seen that CRPA uses Notes and Sheets. On the Sheets, Notes can be visualised and be linked to one another. When two Notes have ever been linked, and the Notes are reused on new a new Sheet, the old link will reappear to remind you of your thoughts from the past.


There is one more component that CRPA uses: Attachments. The icon for an Attachment is: clip0004


You can create Attachments either separately or within Notes. Attachments are used to connect and open documents, programs or web pages from Notes. Each Note can have as many Attachments as you need.

You can drag and drop objects from 'outside' into Notes as well, such as texts, links, pictures, files in (almost) any format.
