Each arc can have an annotation file linked to it. This file is specified by the annotate attribute for the arc. The value of this attribute can be modified (§). The annotation files are stored in the directory named in the configuration parameter DBDIR.
To edit the annotation for an arc:
A Text editor window appears, after loading the annotation file for the arc. If the annotate attribute is empty, a new filename is created and entered as the attribute value before loading. The editor is a separate process outside the direct control of rigiedit.
Warning: The DBDIR parameter must be set to an existing, writeable directory (§); otherwise, the annotations will not be saved properly.
