Hotkeys allow you to access your notes and Tomboy features from anywhere, even when using other applications on your desktop. Hotkeys are activated by pressing multiple keys on your keyboard together.
You can enable Hotkeys by opening Tomboy Preferences by using your mouse to right click on the Tomboy icon in your panel, taskbar or dock and choose Preferences and then select the Hotkeys tab. You can also open Tomboy Preferences from the Search All Notes dialog. From the menu choose Edit ▸ Preferences.
The actions available in Tomboy to be activated by hotkeys are:
Show notes menu: Alt+F12
Open "Start Here": Alt+F11
Create new note: Disabled by default. You can enter a key sequence in this field to create a hotkey.
Open "Search All Notes": Disabled by default. You can enter a key sequence in this field to create a hotkey.
