The text, i.e. body copy, of any note or other object.
The word count of $Text is given by $WordCount and the character count of $Text is given by $TextLength.
The contents of $Text can be altered both by typing into the text pane of a note text window or via action code methods. If using the latter method, novice users should be very careful about appending to $Text as repeating actions can unintentionally rapidly lead to very large amounts of data. Setting $Text via an action code results in new text using the $TextFont font.
If a note is set to use $AutoFetch its $ReadOnly attribute is set to true, rendering the text un-editable (either turn off auto-fetch or alter $ReadOnly's value to edit $Text again).
$Text for the current note can be set or edited via the $Text area of the Text tab of the Text pane.
