Creating and Searching for Notes
Like Nottingham's inspiration Notational Velocity, the primary method of creating notes and finding existing ones is using the search field.
To create a new note, just type your new note's title and press return (↩).
As you're typing your note's title, Nottingham will search for notes that match what you've typed thus far.
If you ever need to make a new note right away and don't want to worry about thinking of a title first, you can press ^⌘N to instantly create a blank, untitled note.
