The note from hell...

Ok,

I am into the iLiad for about two days and I finally got around
to scribbling a note.

The bad news is that I cannot figure out how to delete the
rascal.

I have selected the note in the note directory and tapped the
trash icon, it turns black and after a second or two the 'cursor'
moves to the previous item and the note is still there.

If I select the note to be deleted in the notes directory and
tap the trash icon and then quickly tap the file name the cursor
sometimes jumps from left to right a few times and then
nothing happens...

If the note is displayed and I tap the trash icon nothing happens
(it is a four page note I accidently added three blank pages).

How can I delete a note?

Thanks

Jerry

In the Content Lister,

1. Tap the trash icon.
2. Tap the item(s) to be deleted.
3. Tap the trash icon again to delete the selected item(s)

No problem. Not obvious - unless you've read the manual .

IMHO of course.

Well, to be fair, I have a "note from hell" that won't delete -- even following the directions. I think it's a corrupted file. I haven't had a chance to tackle it from a different OS yet. So that's what I thought grayfox meant when I first read this thread.

I've had files that wouldn't delete, because I tried renaming them from the PC without updating the manifest (or something like that, I seem to recall), and then I tried opening them on the iLiad, and that "broke" it. After that, they can't be deleted unless you reformat.

to continue this thread, I have a note with a blank page in the middle, because I hit the "new page" icon when I meant to hit the "eraser" icon right next to it. So how do I get rid of the blank page in the middle of the document? I thought it might be the sequence "trash-can, select page, select trash-can", but that doesn't do it.

And I HAVE read the manual, but cannot find a way to do this. Anyone?

With note open on the blank page, Trash Can>tap anywhere on the page>Trash Can.

Works with 2.11 only I think.

HTH

Thanks! That did it.

I was hitting "trash-can", then "the page icon at the bottom of the screen" (the big page number in the page-location-within-the-book slider gizmo), then "trash-can" again. Never thought to touch the page where the contents appear.

Did I miss this in the manual or is it a hidden function?
