The process is quick and easy, just follow the steps below

  1. Go to; Design Library symbol > expand the design library folder > right click annotation > click new folder.
  2. Rename the new folder e.g. Notes Library
  3. Create a note > select the note > click the Add to Library button (in the Design Library tab of the Task Manager).
  4. Name the note and specify the Notes Library folder you just created as the save location.
  5. Once the Annotation is added to the Notes Library folder, it can be dragged into the drawing.
