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  Wiki-
       Wiki-like linking system.

       When  run without any options, the Tomboy note menu appears in the Gnome Panel's notifica-
       tion 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 keybind-
       ings 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 summary of options are included below.
