       gnote - A simple note-taking application for Gnome


       gnote [OPTION] ...


       This manual page documents briefly the gnote command.

       Gnote 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.

       Gnote's usefulness lies in the ability  to  relate  notes  and  ideas  together,  using  a
       WikiWiki-like linking system.

       When  run  without  any  options,  either a Search All Notes window or the Gnote note menu
       appears in the notification tray area depending on configuration.  Selecting a note from a
       list  in  Search  All  Notes  or  from the menu from notification area 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  Gnote  notes  and  dialogs.   These
       keybindings are set in GSettings (see below) and may be activated from any application.


       The  program  follows  the  usual  GNU command line syntax, with options starting with two
       dashes (`--').  A summary of options are included below.

              Run Gnote in background.

       --note-path PATH
              Specify the path of the directory containing the notes.

              Display the "Start Here" note.

              Show summary of options.

       Gnote has several preference settings  stored  in  GSettings.   Changes  to  Settings  are
       applied instantly to any running Gnote instance. A summary of the GConf settings and their
       purpose are described below.
