I'm trying to replicate the Go to Anchor button on the Notes pallette
The code I have tried is
|alert("Could not display the note anchor");|
though I have some variantions on this too.
perhaps you mean this:
storyOffset is an insertionPoint.
This would show the insertion point before the note, if the the note is not in overset text.
If you want to show more, you have to select the character that constitutes the note and invoke the Notes panel.
Or the Story Window.
