Why can't I erase this note?

You might try to erase an annotation and find that it's not working. Scriptation's Eraser tool is specifically for erasing Ink Annotations made with the Pen or Marker tools.

To delete other annotations such as shapes, text, highlights, and so on, simply tap on the annotation (be sure to not have any tools selected) and select the Trash icon.

For macOS, you can click on the annotation and used the Delete key to remove notes or you can right-click (two finger press on an Apple Trackpad) to bring up the Remove option.

REMINDER: Only free drawn annotations can be erased.
