An adornment is seen in Map views only and is used to provide a means of adding visual elements to the background of the Map view. Created via the Create Adornment dialog accessible only from the Map pop-up menu. A map may have one, many or no adornments. Adornments are also described under general concepts. Adornments can be picture adornments.
Although adornments are not listed in the views like Outline, these objects do have attributes. To control display details like the border width, select an adornment and either use the [Cmd]+[Opt]+[I] shortcut or select Get Info from its pop-up menu to open the Info dialog. Most attributes are irrelevant for an adornment except those in the Map section.
Note that adornments do get counted in the OutlineOrder, even if not shown; the are counted as the last sibling(s) child(ren) of the note on whose Map view they appear but they do not affect the normal hierarchy or the links of any notes.
When a note is created on top of an adornment, the adornment action is run; prior to this, the adornment action ran only when the note was moved onto the adornment.
Adornments set to zero width or height can be used to make divider lines.
Locked adornments are locked onto the map background to avoid accidental movement. The lock state can be toggled on/off using the icons top right of the adornment; if desired the icon can be substituted with a custom icon. Locked adornments are ignored from drag-selections of notes.
Sticky adornments move any notes within or overlapping them with the adornment when the altter is moved. The sticky state can be toggled on/off using the icons top right of the adornment; if desired the icon can be substituted with a custom icon.
