Chapter 5. Using Mac OS X Applications > Creating Sticky Notes

Creating Sticky Notes

The Sticky Notes application is not new to Panther, however it does give you the ability to tack notes onto your desktop; where they stay until removed. Just think, no longer do you need to worry about the sticky note on your monitor losing it's “stick” and falling off. With Panther, you can use your desktop the way Apple intended—to help with everyday life. Once you create a sticky note, you can change the color of the note, change the color and size of the text, or even have your sticky note talk to you by turning on the speech mode through the Edit menu.

Create Sticky Notes

Open the Applications folder, and then double-click the Stickies icon.

When you first open the Stickies application, you'll see 3 pre-written stickies notes.

Click the File menu, and then click New Note.

Type the text into the note area.

To increase or decrease the note size, drag the lower-right corner of the sticky note.

Click the Font menu, and then select from the font options.

Click the Note menu, and then select between Floating Windows or Translucent Windows.

To change the color of the selected note, click the Color menu and make your change.

Click the File menu to import or export notes, archive your notes, and to print or save your notes.

Click the Close button to quit without saving.

Quit Stickies.
