Please, please, please will someone please add a Notes section to the ArcMap interface? I deal with thousands of maps each year and eons after pressing Save a colleague will inevitably ask me to pull it up and modify it. “Well,” I sigh and say to myself each time, “let’s figure out what in the world I was thinking in (insert month here) of (insert year here).”
Anyone familiar with Power Point (that means everyone) has probably made use of the Notes section at the bottom of each slide. It would be A LIFESAVER to have the same capability in Arc. I don’t care if it is an extension, or if you have to click five menus to get it to appear as a default- please someone, for the love of God, make it happen. Yes- I realize one can go to File>Map Document Properties and see hidden notes there. But who wants to do that?
I also have reoccurring working meetings where I regular sit with all kinds of people to edit spatial data and put together pretty maps. It takes me five minutes each time -in a conference room full of people - to remember what steps I took last time and what layer/record/map item I was working on before. It would be SO MUCH EASIER to just have a tiny little out-of-the-way Notes bar at the bottom of each MXD to jolt my feeble mind back into recognition.
Having some indication of which layers have definition queries in the Table of Contents would also be golden- but I can repost that elsewhere…
