Hiding a title of a note in Map view

I’ve got a prototype for books I’m reading that shows the cover image


And I’m setting the $TitleHeight to 0 to hide the title. Is this the best way? Is there a more performant way of doing this?

$TitleHeight is intended for controlling viewport size. given that you are trying control the ‘title’ part of the note this seems the wrong approach.

Open the Inspector window (Cmd+1), select the Text Inspector and set the $NameColor to ‘transparent’. This means it won’t show in the note’s map icon but should show in the title of the $Text pane and in most (all?) other view types.

IIRC, $NameCoor supporting ‘transparent’ is a recent change for this very sort of purpose.
