No such border exists.

These little windows can't be resized or moved.  Windows generated by
using the menu got by right or center clicking the Knote icon in the
tray have a partial border at the top which can be used to drag them,
can be resized, and a partial border at the bottom which generates a
menu when right clicked that has a function that deletes them (among
others).  An image of a normal Knote window is attached.

Interestingly, the "Find" option got by right clicking the Knote icon in
the tray finds text in normal Knote windows but not in the little boxes
at the bottom of the screen.

Thanks for all your help - jon
