How do I erase this note?

Perhaps you are trying to Erase an annotation, and have found that it's not working.

That's because Scriptation's Eraser tool is specifically for erasing Ink Annotations made with the Pen or Marker tools.

TIP: Can't find the Eraser icon? In some screen configurations, the eraser shares an icon with the Selection Tool, or the Pen and Marker. Deselect any active tools, and press and hold those tools to display additional options.

To delete annotations such as Shapes, Text Boxes, and Text Highlights, tap the annotation (be sure to not have any tools selected) and tap the Trash icon.

On Mac, click the annotation and use the Delete key, or right-click (two finger press) on the annotation to select Remove.

REMINDER: Only free drawn annotations (Drawing and Freeform Highlight) can be erased.
