I just pushed out the next point release of Sticky Notes, version 1.4. Along with this new version – which has many new features that I’m quite happy with – this site also got a face-lift, so to speak. It’s no longer merely a landing page, for one. I’ve also added an info page and a support page, where you can vote on upcoming features.
So, new features:
Added a filter to the note menu. Can’t find a note? Click the note menu (next to the gear menu) and start typing your note’s title. It will narrow down the list to those that match what you type. Click on a note in the menu to bring it to the front. Additionally, there is an option on the settings page to search through the whole note instead of just the title. Keep in mind, though, that this will decrease performance if you have a large amount of notes.
Added an option to control the behavior of double clicking the note title. Previously, double clicking the title would always collapse or expand the note. Now, you can set it to collapse/expand or opening the note settings.
Added an undo option to the settings page. If enabled, your last deleted note will be able to be restored, but only your most recent one.
Added “What’s New” to the gear menu, so you can see what’s changed.
Added an option to change the top bar’s color to light or dark.
Now you can grab the bottom right corner of your notes and resize their width and height.
Please note: because the way note sizing has been changed, you might see some size or scrollbar misbehavior with existing notes. If this happens, copy the note’s text, create a new note, and paste the text in the new note.
In previous versions, when formatted text was pasted into a note, it would retain all that formatting, and become impossible to change the font or text size. Now, when you paste formatted text, it will only retain bold, italics, and underlined text, and nothing else. (You can change bold, italic, and underlined text by selecting some text and pressing the Control key and the letter B, I, and U, respectively.)
The eight color options have been replaced by a single text field, in which you can enter a hexadecimal color value. A color picker will also appear, allowing you to select any color. If you pick a dark color, the note’s text will change from black to white.
