I think there is an error in the Quickly tutorial. In the User Dialog section, the tutorial instructs users to enter: title = saver.title_text in the save dialog method. This gives some error which is fixed by using: title = save.title_text()

@RobinJ Actually, it's better to report bugs with ubuntu-bug, which includes important technical information automatically (pertaining to version, Ubuntu release, and app configuration). See the bug reporting documentation for details. Furthermore, when reporting bugs, it's advisable to search first to see if it's already been reported, rather than starting out by filling out a new report. – Eliah Kagan Jun 30 '12 at 12:39
Thanks RobinJ. I will do that next time. – user72943 Jul 2 '12 at 1:05

This is not an error, you just need to add @property to the line above the title_txt method. So, your code should look like this:

def title_text(self):
    return self.ui.entry1.get_text()

This should be placed in the SaveDialog class in the file. You can find out about @property and its usage here.
