Anyone still use MacOs Stickies?

I never bothered using it, and I didn't even know it was still around.

[support.apple.com]

I only came across it because I've recently become addicted to Notes.app, using it for almost everything, and I occasionally hit the wrong key combo when formatting text.

It's probably been that way forever, but it turns out if you select some text in almost any app and then hit Command-Shift-Y, a new note opens in Stickies with that text.

Could be kind of useful I guess. Am I the last one to discover this or just the only one to care?

I’ve got one on my desktop with a month countdown til retirement. That’s not much of a use case.

Use both Stickies and Notebook like their instant save feature.

"Notes" has pretty much replaced my use for those. They sync across my devices is a huge bonus.

"All that is required for evil to prevail is for good men to do nothing." - Edmund Burke
“Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented." - Eli Weisel

"To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." - Theodore Roosevelt (1918)

"I don’t want to see religious bigotry in any form. It would disturb me if there was a wedding between the religious fundamentalists and the political right. The hard right has no interest in religion except to manipulate it." - Billy Graham 1981

"Politics and governing demand compromise. But these Christians believe they are acting in the name of God, so they can't and won't compromise" - Barry Goldwater

I'm afraid it will go the way of Widgets, another useful item Apple has dropped.

I am that Masked Man.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

LOVED that computer. Still remember the price tag: $5040, and that was back in 1997 dollars, which is around $9k in today's money. Dual lead tech batteries!
