xfce4-notes-plugin - Notes

Please note that this plugin is not currently compatible with the current Xfce 4.16 release.

Ideal for your quick notes

The notes plugin provides you a quick way to write down a todo list, to paste a piece of code, to leave a note to your friend, or whatever else you had like to do with a Post-It note.

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.
