Feisty feature of the day #37 - What links to your Tomboy notes?

In many ways, Tomboy is like a personal wiki. It lets you quickly create new content and make links between notes, and it even inserts links automatically.

The latest Tomboy has gained another wiki-like feature: backlinks. This feature allows you to see which other notes link to the current note, which can be handy if you're navigating from idea to idea*.

Tomboy showing which notes link to the current one

On a Tomboy note, go to Tools -> What links here? to see a list of backlinks.

* This reminds me of another useful Tomboy-related utility, which creates mind-maps from your notes.
