How can I recover my notes now that Dashboard is gone in Catalina?

Dashboard is no longer available as of macOS Catalina (10.15). If you were signed in to Junecloud sync before you upgraded to Catalina, you can access your notes here.

If you were not syncing your notes online, you can download Notefile Data Recovery. Once the app is downloaded, find it in your downloads folder and open it. The app will prompt you to select the file where your Notefile data is stored. The correct file should already be selected. Click Recover to continue. Next the app will ask where you want to save your notes. Choose a location and click Save. The app will create a “Notefile” folder in the location you chose, then create a plain text file for each note you had created in the Dashboard widget.

If you prefer, you can also recover your data manually. Your data is stored here:
~/Library/Preferences/widget-com.junecloud.widget.notefile.plist
You can open this file with BBEdit, Xcode, or another app with support for property list files.
