Yeah, it would be nice to have an option for custom colors.

Yeah a color picker and even the option to put in the RGB values, that would be sweet. I think they could also let you picky a sticky note theme. I know I could imagine a nice little glassy 'gloss' sticky note on my desktop.

Can other colours be added? Like orange, or red. Just a thought.

Hello Zaydie, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You could also type the text in any format and color you like in WordPad (C:\Windows\write.exe), then be able to copy and paste it from WordPad into a Sticky Note keeping the same format and color.

In addition, the free program Stickies has a lot features.

Hope this helps,
