LOL, now there's a good workaround.

Thank you Tw33k.

follow up question

Is there any way to add indentation to list items? Like so...

1. Book A
i chapter 3
ii chapter 7
2. Book B
i chapter 12
ii chapter assessment

I tried highlighting a sub item and pressing tab, also tried to select just the sub items and use Ctrl+Shift+L. Although it kind of worked the next un-indented list item starts a new list order (ie 1. instead of 2.) Also, tried the word shortcuts (Ctrl+M/ Ctrl+Shift+M) any ideas?

Hello XiMiX, and welcome to Seven Forums.

If you mean inside Sticky Notes, then you could press the Tab key to indent.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Thanks for the info and welcoming Brink!
I understand that I am able to indent with the tab key but this is regarding indenting lists within a list. For now I am just creating them by hand but was wondering if there is an easier way.

I'm afraid not. You might see if the free program Stickies may work better for this though.

Yes, I'm running that OS too.
 
 

In response to the question about changing the default font used by Sticky Notes, I use a program called Bitstream Font Navigator (came with Corel Draw Graphics Suite) to unregister the font Segoe Print. This causes Windows to fall back to the default font, MS Sans Serif. This is acceptable to me, since I can't ever distinguish the different numbers and letters in the Segoe Print font.

Edit:
I've confirmed that you will have to unregister the Segoe Print font to keep from having problems. There is a free font manager that can do that for you called AMP Font Viewer. You can find it here: AMP Font Viewer - Complete font manager: view, organize, install, delete and print fonts lists (TrueType, OpenType and Type 1) - AMPsoft

Get rid of that nasty font!

Thanks for the tip, comcc! Works wonderfully! I removed the font, but without installing anything. You can do this from Control Panel -> Fonts (if by Categories, it's under the "Appearance and Personalization" category). Before deleting the font, you will get an error message if you don't exit completely from any application that is using the "Segoe Print [...]" font, including browsers, Word, Sticky Notes, etc.
