NAME
       gnote - A simple note-taking application for Gnome


SYNOPSIS
       gnote [OPTION] ...


DESCRIPTION
       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, the Gnote 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 Gnote notes and
       dialogs.  These keybindings are set in GConf (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
