Note taking

This lesson explains the basics of entering text and doing rudimentary page layout with Storga.
It will be completed by the following lesson which will explain how to create a more complex layout, using the table block, as well as how to move the blocks.

Type a new paragraph

To enter text, first switch to edit mode:

Then, optionally click on existing text to position the cursor.
To add a paragraph or a subtitle just below, use the Storga toolbox.

A paragraph

A subtitle

When you add a paragraph or subtitle block, the cursor is automatically positioned to allow you to enter the corresponding text.

If you had not positioned the cursor before clicking on the icon representing the new block, it will be added to the bottom of the page.

Tip: when you switch to edit mode, if the paragraphs are too wide, and therefore are not displayed in their entirety, you can press the 'Print screen' key to ask Storga to reposition the text correctly.

Change text attributes

When, in edit mode, you select a text area (a few letters or words) of an existing paragraph or subtitle, the selected text is displayed on a slightly red background, and the following contextual menu appears on the left, allowing you to

Warning: In Storga, the selected text must be part of a single paragraph.

In the contextual menu of the paragraph, Bold, Italic, Fixed, Color (of the text), (Color of) Background are attributes of the text, ie of the selected letters.
On the other hand, Bullet and Spacing are attributes of the entire paragraph, regardless of the letters selected inside it.

When you select a color for text or background, you have three options for doing so.

Look no further: there is no possibility to change the size of the text.

 

To delete

To delete text inside a paragraph, select the text with the mouse.

To delete an entire paragraph, click to position the cursor, then click on the delete icon, and finally confirm via the 'delete it' button that appears above the screen.

To delete several paragraphs at once, you must use Storga's organize mode, which will be explained in a later lesson.

Move

To move part of a paragraph, select the corresponding text, then press the 'Delete' key on the keyboard.

To move one or more entire paragraphs, you must use Storga's arrange mode, which will be explained in a later lesson.

Create a subpage

If you type all your notes into one page, it will quickly become too long. A dialogue window then appears above the screen allowing you to choose the name of the new page.

If you click on triangle at the top of a block under page, you select the block, which allows you for example to delete it by then clicking on the delete icon, or to add a new block below by selecting a

On the other hand, if you click on the text of the title of the subpage, you open this one.

Quick note taking

When taking notes, we generally prefer to avoid using the mouse, because the all-keyboard mode is faster, and with a little practice, allows you to work with your eyes up most of the time.

When you reach the end of a paragraph, to move on to the next, simply press the 'Enter' key.

Warning: Don't make the mistake of creating a large text, with multiple paragraphs visually, by using two line breaks (Shift Enter) to separate the different paragraphs.

If now, following the paragraph, you wish to add a title or subtitle, simply press the 'Enter' key to create a new paragraph, then one of the 'F1' or 'F2' or 'F3' keys to toggle the

Going back

If you have made unintended changes, and do not know how to go back, simply use Storga's back button, accessible in edit mode:

Click the button, then use the right and left arrows above the screen to go back.

Practical work

On your Storga experiment site:

   •   

Enter a short text, with several paragraphs.

   •   

Bold one of the words.

   •   

Add a title and a subtitle.

   •
