A new text field, $Caption, can appear beneath a note or an adornment, in map view only. Captions are intended to be additional annotations or comments about a note.

Caption appearance is controlled by $CaptionFont, $CaptionOpacity, $CaptionSize, and $CaptionColor.

Captions be edited by selecting the note and then clicking on the caption. Captions may also be edited in the Caption pane of the Name inspector, or by setting $Caption via action code.

The caption's font may be changed using the font palette (by default the bundled Sketchnote font is used). Note that the font selected is used for the entire caption (no mixing of fonts).
