# Specify a locale
# Use xx or xx_YY with xx being the ISO code for language and YY the ISO code for country.
# Leave blank to use the system default.
#locale=en
#locale=en_US

# true to display tasks on top of other windows
# false otherwise
#always.on.top=false
always.on.top=true

# Choose a theme
theme=GRAY

# === TASKS === #

# change the separator if you need to use the default on in your tasks description
tasks.separator=;
tasks.todos=Task 1;Task 2;Task 3

Specifying which file to use

You may wish to use another file than task.properties, or maybe you cannot place it in the same directory. In this case, you can use the command-line to force the application to use another configuration file:

java -jar /path/to/your/daily-tasks.jar /path/to/your/configuration.properties
