Spent a half an hour creating and organization sticky note reminders for myself only to open the program this morning to find all my notes right where I left them.. with no text. All of these notes are blank and completely useless to me, though are placed just where I left them. Glad I didn't pay for this app

Is there anyway to keep the notes on your desktop permanently, without having to open the app, and clicking on the category to bring up, the respective note??

Loved using the program, but v. 2.1 isn’t Lion-compatible.

• It doesn't show the scrollbar, so the only way to get to text not currently displayed is to highlight & drag up/down.

• It also seems to have trouble resizing if a note's window is taller than screen height, since, unlike the Apple Stickies in Lion, it can only be resized by dragging the lower-right-hand corner, which would be beyond the screen.

The ideas of having categories is a real step-up.
Wonderfully practical idea to prevent notes from flooding the screen.

No problems with scrollbars here.


Did you try selecting "Notes use scroll bars" in the preferences? No problems here on Lion. Nice app.

Thank you developer for this recent update!

The program is quite close to perfection now.

The only thing I still miss is the possibility to save notes when closing them… And maybe a (thumbnail) note browser with all categories…
