Software Better Than Stickies On Mac

Firefox 3.6.13One of the most famous and powerful web browsers.

I'm writing this in the hope a Mac developer researching the topic sees an opportunity. Features from Stickies that I am missing: Toggle Stickies on and off with a global keyboard shortcut. I don't want to go through the Dashboard, I want Stickies to pop on my desktop on command! Set an alarm for any Sticky. Awesome for reminders, or daily tasks.

  • Sticky Notes 3.7 is out now!. Ink Analysis is back! There was a bad bug preventing you from getting ink insights and handwriting analysis, but we squashed it. Insights is better than ever! We did a bunch of bug fixing and improvements, including remembering insights across sessions and even remembering them when you go offline.
  • Feb 13, 2017  Apple has created two of these Mac OS X apps for this purpose. The first was called Stickies and still exists today. It worked, and it was kinda cute. This was back in the days before Jonathan Ive was in charge of Mac and IOS device appearance, so.
  • In the Stickies app on your Mac, do any of the following. Arrange a note manually: Click the top of a note and drag the note where you want it. Group multiple notes: Choose Window Arrange By, then choose an option. Keep a note in front of other windows: Choose Window Float on Top. Make a note semi-transparent: Choose Window Translucent. Collapse or expand a note: Double-click the title bar.
