xx Launch new note via AutoHotKey
« Thread started on: Nov 11th, 2017, 01:46am »

Anyone who knows the code to do this when Stickies is already running? Would like to quickly launch a new note - preferably with toggle set to on (ie always on top).
Thanks.

How would you execute the code? There is already a hotkey you can choose and Ontop is an option you can set in the options menu for a new created sticky.

Here is example code for ahk when you use the "break" key as hotkey:

Code:
Break::

Many thanks eef smiley smiley Works like a charm.
The ToggleOnTop however is off, ie the note is not on top of other windows. Is there a property that could accomplish this?

Setting new created stickies ontop in Options is the safest/easy way i guess.You can send the command using api to set it ontop but i think it is overkill .

I cannot insert the image in this post ( the tags do not seem to work or imgur changed its policy for direct posting.......)

Here is the link to show the stickies Options dialog screengrab ,the setting is in the Options / appearance dialog window .
