Notes

Ideal for your quick notes

The notes plugin provides you a quick way to paste text, to write down a list of things, to leave a note to your friend, or whatever you had do with Post-It's.

Usage

Some Tips

Notes are saved under $XDG_DATA_HOME/notes/$XDG_DATA_HOME is an environment variable defined by the XDG base directory specification and defaults to $HOME/.local/share.

Window Manager Hint: You probably want to uncheck the option “Skip windows that have skip pager or skip taskbar properties set” of Xfwm4 (Settings > Window Manager Tweaks > Cycling). The reason is that the notes plugin sets the skip pager hint so it doesn't clutter your pager, but you still want to access your notes by cycling to them with Alt+Tab.
