Sticky Notes

I hate the fact that the font of sticky notes cant be changed and that they dont have tickets. What alternative do you recommend me?

Thanks in advance.

If you delete Segoa Print font, the default font used by Sticky Notes, it's forced to use MS Sans Serif.

Hello Newtr0n,

You might see if the free program Stickies may work better for you instead.

Hope this helps,

Sticky Notes
Recently updated from Vista to 7 on 2 machines (both Lenovo tablet PC's). I had several pre-existing sticky notes and use the program often. When I try to launch sticky notes in 7, I get a "corrupt metadata" error message. Same thing on both machines. Need suggestions for a fix. Thanks.
