Tiger comes with the Stickies widget, which is pretty good. However, your Dashboard desktop can soon become cluttered if you have several active Stickies - especially since there are so many great widgets out there that just need to be on your desktop.

Enter Notepad Widget:

  • Notepad widget allows you to have all your notes on onewidget, if you so wish.
  • You can have multiple Notepad widgets on your dashboard fordifferent categories, for example, Home and Work.
  • Print your notes

What's New

Version 1.00:

Added

  • Open note in a text editor to allow printing
  • Save individual notes to disc.
  • Backup and Restore all notes.
  • Notes now survive when Notepad is closed ( removed from Widget Desktop) via Restore.
  • Go to previous last note on start up.
Changes
  • Autosave is always on - notes are automatically saved when cursor leaves the text area of the widget.

Love the space saving ability it has. I do wish I could resize it, or change the sans comic title font... eau. But aesthetics aside, a great program.

If you are upgrading from a previous version of notepad:
After copying notepad.wdgt file to your
~/Library/Widgets
folder, you must log out and log back in ( or just restart the Dock) before continued use.

( where ~ is your home directory )

Excellent. More versatile than stickies. Just what I needed.

Yes I agree, much better.
All the colors from the website don't work. It would be good to have the whole notepad change color, so that when it's reduced in size, colors still show...
thanks for the cool work

Great changes... obviously took former reviews in consideration.
Not crazy about the set colors and the fact that the pad itself can't change color (classic or notepad only). The idea of getting colors online isn't too bad, but what if nowhere near an internet connection?
All the other features are wonderful...
Keep up the great work!

I like the widget, but it seems to have a bug ... After restarting Dashboard, the widget was gone, and after I threw it back on, it refused to load the saved notes, even though they were still present in the .plist file ... Maybe it's a Dashboard bug - I don't know.

Ensure you copy the Dashboard.wdgt file to your -
~/Library/Widgets
Folder.

I've found that if you try running widgets from outside this folder ( i.e., double clicking to launch ), the Widget won't be reloaded later after reboot, login, dock restart etc.

Great widgets, better than the stickies. BUT I wish I could change colors, fonts& size and above all I wish I could reduce the widget to only see the category, because it is quite big for my 12" screen.

I like this because it has the simplicity of the original Apple Notepad. Some modern Notepad-like substitutes have gotten too feature-bloated for my taste. But I wish I had the ability to bump up font size a bit

Now thats more like it. Apples included Stickie sucks, but this widget rules. Great work. Very intuitive.
