Is there a way to pin some notes in Tomboy's app indicator so that I don't have to open the main window every time I'm looking for one specific note I read regularly? It used to work before Unity because it wasn't an app indicator but a panel applet.

Do I have to install some package or file a bug?

It seems to be a limitation of Appindicator.

See Launchpad bug #738200.

in previous ubuntu version there was a pin icon by each note in the drop down menu. clicking it would pin that note into the menu.


Yup, this is a bug with ubuntu's appindicator patch. Last time I checked the appindicator infrastructure did not have support for pinned items.

@user21088: You should mark lgarzo's answer as accepted, then. ;-) – Sandy Nov 14 '11 at 0:59
