Problem:

How can I backup and use Tomboy Notes on multiple computers?

Solution:

Using iFolder, I was able to backup my Tomboy notes and make them available on multiple computers.

Example:

  1. Open up your home folder, Select View > Show Hidden Files.
  2. Find the .tomboy folder and select/cut and past into a directory backed up by iFolder.
  3. Now, select the folder, right click and use the "Make Link" option.
  4. Copy this file back to your home directory and rename to ".tomboy".
