I have a lot of xfce-notes groups containing each a lot of text. I want to transfert them to a new machine without copying the whole home directory. Where does xfce4-notes store its data and configation files?

The notes are stored as text files in $XDG_DATA_HOME/notes/ (~/.local/share/notes by default).

The settings are in $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/xfce4 (~/.config/xfce4/xfce4-notes.*).
