How do I get text in a given note to all be visible, so the bottom scroll bar is not needed or used?

Recommended Posts

Sorry but I'm not sure how to put this properly into words. In the text of a note, that appears on the right side of my window, the text itself rolls past the visible section of the note. This necessitates a horizontal scroll bar at the bottom of the note section, and to read all the text, I have to move the bar to the right.

Is there a way to force the entire row to stay visible in the window, so I don't have to use that horizontal scroll bar? I am ok with using a vertical scroll bar, to read long documents its usually used anyways. But having to switch back and force is annoying and slows down the reading. You can see what I'm talking about in the screenshot. I'd like to keep all the text in the Note entitled "Longitudinal Axis..." visible, so that the horizontal scroll bar identified with the red arrow, is not used.

I just found out that I can adjust the three columns in the view--the one on the left showing the notebooks, the middle column with the tags, as well as the right one with the text of the notes. I moved the left two columns a bit more leftwards, and it appears to have cleared up the horizontal scrollbar in some notes, but it still remains in others.

I'm using a Mac, with the sidebar at minimized width
Top list view provides the maximum panel size for the note panel

I see that. Yes, it does. Now Top List view decreases the number of tags that I can see, but I think I'd rather deal with that, b/c once I identify which note I want to see, I click on that in the Tags section, and then all I read is the text in the note panel. I got rid of the toolbar that had Print and Sync buttons on it, and that opened up more space for me.

Thanks, I appreciate the helpful reply. There does appear to be a fair amount of unused space (the Tags section now on top does have a lot of white space, and the name of the notebook just above that has a lot of grey area, but at least I'm not constantly shifting from one scrollbar to another.

If I could get the Side List view to work for me, I think I'd still prefer that, so if anyone else has a solution, I'm all ears. But at least I have something that can work.

Alternative suggestion - use a one-cell table.  You can adjust a table to your screen width and the text may reflow accordingly.  (Depends where the text is from - web clips may misbehave...)

can you explain how to adjust the table? I can only seem to insert text inside a cell, but no matter what I click on, I can't seem to get the cell boundaries to move at all.

 

Even when I get my mouse to make the "move boundary" symbol (the vertical line with arrows pointing both to the left and the right), I can't seem to get the boundary moving to the left of the note field at all.

Hmmn.  If you're using the web or mobile versions,  that's an issue:  My main access is generally the Windows client - clicking within a cell gives you access to the drop-down and handles.

gazumped, I see that too--and I was accessing it through the Windows version. I see that same popup window, but I'm just not sure how I can widen or lengthen a cell in that menu.

OK - choosing 'match note width' will bounce the table out to the visible window,  and if you hover over the thin grey vertical line of the table,  you should see a 'move me' icon that will let you stretch the placement.  Some columns move with others... you kinda have to play with it to see what's possible.  In Windows it's possible to switch other panels off - see the 'view' menu for options and shortcut keys.

I see how to do that now. Thanks for letting me know. Turning all my notes into a single celled table, will take a while for me to do manually, but this allows me to use the view setting (Side View) that is the most efficient for me, while still not having to move that horizontal scroll bar.

Now when I clicked on the "Match Note Width" option, the cell stretched beyond the visible window, so I had to click on that option again, to bring it back.
