It would be really cool to have a Note book tool for QCAD!

For example I am often working on a draft and at the same time scribbling notes down on a separate piece of paper relating to the drawing I am working on, could be anything e.g. add a block,add a dimension etc. etc... all sorts of things to remind myself about - all related to a particular drawing.

Of course I could use any number of other programs for this but a simple dedicated tool inside QCAD (could be called the ‘QCAD scribbler ;)) would be much better, especially one that can save the notes to a particular file, then when I open up my drawing again - my notes are there too!

This task depends upon

Hi Clive,
I like the Idea!!!

But what is the difference to this Feature Request?

Hi Husky
It is very similar - but I was thinking more of a 'sticky note' type widget actually in QCAD for rough 'working' notes, rather than use an external program. Something that could be docked even in QCAD and just add to 'on the fly' as it were! Then when saving your drawing file it saves the note with the file.
