There should be a green check mark at the rigth of the note properties box.
Thanks for responding. The note at the bottom said editing block in place as I was making changes to the note. Then as I right clicked, there was an option that said at the bottom of the flyout, close component. By choosing that I was able to make the change, & get out. That just seemed a bit different, not what I would have expected & not the option I would have looked for.
