Sticky Notes FAQ

I Launched the app, but just got the message “Sticky Notes - This Release Has Expired…”

There is a bug in the current version of Sticky Notes in the Mac App Store. A full explanation and workaround is available in this blog post.

I paid for Sticky Notes 1, is there an upgrade price?

Sorry, but Apple doesn’t have a system for offering existing customers a discount on Mac App Store purchases.

Where are Sticky Notes stored on my computer?

They are stored in a database, in a folder inside your home directory:

On OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard):
~/Library/Application Support/Sticky Notes/

On OS X 10.7 (Lion), the files are “sandboxed”:

How do I move my Sticky Notes to a new computer?

On OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard):
You need to copy the folder ~/Library/Application Support/Sticky Notes/ to the same place on the new computer and the file ~/Library/Preferences/com.randomsequence.stickynotes.plist to the same location on the new computer

On OS X 10.7 (Lion):
Copy the folder ~/Library/Containers/com.randomsequence.stickynotes/ to the same place on the new computer.

I have multiple monitors. How do I move notes from one to the other with snapping turned on?

Hold down the option (alt) key while dragging to temporarily turn off snapping. The note will then snap to the edges of the other monitor

I cannot send notes to users on the network

If you are using a firewall you may not be able receive notes from other users. In the sharing preference pane of Sticky Notes 1.2 or greater, you can specify the port number Sticky Notes should use. You need to enable incoming connections on the port chosen here to receive notes.

Can I attach notes to a specific document, rather than by application?

Unfortunately the system does not provide the information needed for Sticky Notes to know which document you’re currently editing. We regret to say that we cannot implement this feature.

Can you add feature X?

Possibly. We can’t add every requested feature, but if your suggestion is a good one it will be added to the list for future versions. Feedback like this is always welcome. To send feedback, please use the form on the feedback page or email us at the address below
