See subject. Does AddNote have configuration options? Thank you.

Addnote was never intended to be a final solution.. someone needs to make a better note plugin with searching.

But you could do what you want by disabling the default addnote+viewnotes aliases and making your own.

Here is commandline options for addnote (see the -f option for specifying notefile name and path):
E:\MyDocs\Programming\CodeGear\FindAndRunRobot\Helpers>AddNote.exe --help


   AddNote.exe  [-o] [-r] [-m] [-p] [-d <string>] [-t <string>] [-f
                <string>] [--] [--version] [-h]


   -o,  --open
     open notefile after completion

   -r,  --report
     report operation result with messagebox

   -m,  --bottom
     add note to the bottom of the file

   -p,  --top
     add note to the top of the file

   -d <string>,  --dateformat <string>
     Format for time/date stamp (uses c strftime funciton formatting, see

   -t <string>,  --text <string>
     Text to add (enclose in double quotes)

   -f <string>,  --file <string>
     Filename to write to

   --,  --ignore_rest
     Ignores the rest of the labeled arguments following this flag.

     Displays version information and exits.

   -h,  --help
     Displays usage information and exits.

The addnote+viewnote aliases are in Aliases\Installed\Core_Aliases\Core-Helpers.alias
So easiest solution would be to copy that alias file to your Custom alias directory, rename it, then disable the normal core-helpers one and edit yours.
