I find myself often taking quick notes. E.g. jotting down what files I have edited etc, or a quick reminder.
For this I just have a gedit window open to which I alt + tab, and then apply "always on top" to when I wish to take notes, and reverse to process when I am done.
But I am looking for something much more convenient, What I am hoping exists is a Guake-like text editor, that I can just hit a key and it drops down from the top of the screen, hit the key again and it pops back up.
Does said item exist anywhere?
