NAME
tomboy - A simple note-taking application for Gnome
SYNOPSIS
tomboy [OPTION] ...
DESCRIPTION
This manual page documents briefly the tomboy command. Tomboy is a desktop note-taking application for Linux and Unix. Simple and easy to use, but with potential to help you organize the ideas and information you deal with every day. Tomboy's usefulness lies in the ability to relate notes and ideas together, using a WikiWiki-like linking sys- tem. When run without any options, the Tomboy note menu appears in the Gnome Panel's notification tray area. Selecting a note from the menu displays the note's spatial window. Changes to notes are saved automatically. Links to URLs, files, and other notes are detected as you type. Rich editing such as highlighting, bold, italics, undo/redo, and variable font sizes are supported. Global keybindings exist to allow fast access to Tomboy notes and dialogs. These keybindings are set in GConf (see below) and may be activated from any application.
OPTIONS
The program follows the usual GNU command line syntax, with options starting with two dashes (`--'). A sum- mary of options are included below. --new-note Create and display a new note. --new-note TITLE Create and display a new note with the title given. --open-note TITLE/URL Display the existing note matching TITLE or URL. --start-here Display the "Start Here" note. --highlight-search TEXT Search and highlight TEXT in the opened note. --help Show summary of options. --version Show version of program.
GCONF SETTINGS
Tomboy has several preference settings stored in GConf. Changes to Settings are applied instantly to any run- ning Tomboy instance. A summary of the GConf settings and their purpose are described below. /apps/tomboy/global_keybindings/open_start_here Global X keybinding for displaying the "Start Here" note. The default keybinding is <Alt>F11. /apps/tomboy/global_keybindings/show_note_menu Global X keybinding for displaying the Tomboy applet's note menu.
