How to write text notes into a project?

Hi All, wondering if there is any way to record text notes in a project? I work on some projects within a group and it would be handy to be able to have an area where notes could be types that could include progress, latest edits, etc. so that the next person working on a project knows where the previous version left off (or an individual can keep track of the last thing they did if working on multiple projects). Appreciate this can be done with traditional pen/paper or word files on the pc but would be handy to be able to include in the project files to keep it all together. Cheers.

    You can use Edit Info Text to add notes to a clip, scene, track, preset, rack, or chain. What I would probably recommend in your case would be to create a blank scene called "Notes". Click on the Scene and either select Edit Info Text from the Edit menu, or right/ctrl-click (PC/Mac) the scene to edit it from the context menu.

    Yeah Ableton should really incorporate this. I can't imagine it would be find hard to do considering they already have a notes functionality in the coding

    Having a general notes field for a Set/Project would be great.

    szk does a free m4l plugin that you can drop onto any track(s) to make simple text notes for yourself - http://flo.szk.fr/m4l/simple-text-v1/

    While it does sound silly, I agree with Scruffydan, just as a quick way to lay notes with a project. Prob not a tier 1 effort though.

    Not to compare DAW's or anything I love Ableton and it is my DAW of choice. just a note editor like what protools has so you can make track notes as you go through your project would be hugely beneficial for production collaborations and just overall long term mixing

    Live 10 update??? :p

    Reaper has this feature as well - it's very handy.
