        \class NotesDemo
        \brief The NotesDemo application is a simple text editor demonstrating the use of a QDocumentSelector.

        It is comprised of a QDocumentSelector and a QTextEdit in a dialog with a stacked layout so only
        one widget is visible at a time.  The document selector is initially visible and selecting a document
        or creating a new document will display the document in the text editor.  Accepting or canceling the
        editor will return to the document selector, saving the document if it was accepted, and accepting or
        canceling the document selector will exit the application.
