No you cannot.
You can however make links to documents with the different notes texts.
Or you can use attachments
Or you can add 2 subtopics ach with a different text

It would be nice if you also include the reason why you aks for these features.
In that case we may be able to learn from you as well ;-)

if several symbols are used , the image is shifted to the right, which is wasted space . It would be better if you could align the symbols vertical or below the image .

Only one note per branch.

You can insert a table in the Note and have two columns with different notes.

There are some good reasons it is one note per branch and this is to do with the exports:

- Word: a note is the paragraphs following a header (topic text)
- Web: a note is the content of a web page whose name is the topic text
- Project: a note is a task (topic text) note

I support Ary make it two subtopics. This allows you identify the purpose of the two notes.

For my part, sometimes I find it useful to insert two "notes" in one branch, two notes of different types.

You can also create invisible callouts, with no line or fill colour and no text, linked to each other and each with a note to create the illusion that the parent subtopic has multiple notes.

See the example below. In the first subtopic I've left the outlines of the callouts so you can see the callout locations but in the second I've made them completely blank:

You can probably reduce the spacing by decreasing the (Theme) font size of the Callouts.

But please note these Callout Notes may not appear in Exports or the PDF Viewer/Flash.

That's a good point. It definitely wouldn't work if you were exporting with the WordX add-in which doesn't recognise callouts at all but I'm not sure about about the built-in Word export facility. From memory (I'm not at my computer at the moment) this has the option to include callouts but I don't know about notes on callouts. I'll have a look in the morning.

I've just tested exporting callouts and callout topic notes to Word. I'm pleased to report that it all seems to work, including:

  1. Exporting visible callouts with topic notes;
  2. Exporting "stacked" visible callouts each with a topic note;
  3. Exporting "invisible" callouts with topic notes (in this case a bullet point with no text is placed in the callout box in the export with the topic note appearing on the line below); and
  4. Exporting a callout with a subtopic with topic note attached.
