Knotes Usage

I'd like to have Knotes running in my tray and have it open on startup. I can't figure out how to have knotes start without opening a new note. This is generally a nice feature but is there a way to disable it. Can I make Knotes open without opening a new note?

RE: Knotes Usage

Here, it opens all notes that were open when knotes was closed.

There is also a little tric to achive this: run knotes with the following command:

Source code

knotes && dcop knotes KNotesIface hideAllNotes

Thanks very much for the reply, your tip was most helpful. You'd think that behavior would be something the designers would let you configure from the interface.

I'd like to remind everyone that the right place to ask KNotes questions is in a forum that actually gets read by KNotes developers and users -- that forum is the mailing list

When expressing wishes, it's really worthwhile to go to and fill in a wishlist item. Or right-click on the KNotes systray icon, choose menu "help" and select "report bug" which will do the same thing (take you to but skip a few annoying questions.

Wishes expressed on some random web board are like shouting in the wilderness. (Oh, and I _agree_ with the wish, even, though the behavior doesn't bother me since I restart KDE maybe once every few months).

My bad for thinking that a forum called KDE-Forum in the section for KOffice and Pim questions was a good place to ask about Knotes.

I run kde on a laptop and start and restart it all the time. Knotes could be much more useful if it were searchable and not as flakey.
