How to Use a Generic Note

Instructions and Information on Specific Verbs (Commands)

Using the Encore Object Editor

From within the enCore Object Editor (whether as you create the Note or as you seek to edit it), you can write the message the Note contains, edit it, or erase the text. 

Using Specific Verb Commands

read note
Prints the text written on the named object, usually a note or letter.  Some notes are encrypted so that only certain players may read them.  Type: look note will display the text of the note as well.

write "any text" on note
Adds a line of text to the named note or letter.  Only the owner of a note may do this.

erase note
Deletes all of the text written on a note or letter.  Only the owner of a note may do this.

delete line-number from note
Removes a single line of text from a note.  The first line of text is numbered 1, the second is 2, and so on.  Only the owner of a note may do this. To see the different lines of text, type 'read note'.

encrypt note with key-expression
Restricts the set of players who can read the named note or letter to those for whom the given key expression is true.  See 'help keys' for information on the Type and semantics of key expressions, or look at the "help keys."  Only the owner of a note may do this.
