I think scrollbars would take Stickies beyond its purpose. Stickies isn't intended for lengthy amounts of text and a lot of the features being requested on here. The beauty of the program is in its simplicity: let's keep it that way.

I have also used another sticky program - Stickies for Windows - and the scrollbar was the best feature about it - I literally use it all the time! Please please please code in a scrollbar - excellent idea - if you did I would definitely migrate to this version of stickies.... cool

wink Definately NO scrollbars!

The thing that brought me to Stickies was the simple layout and interface - With scrollbars it just clutters up everything! Yuck...

Hey folks, here is another vote for scrollbars.
It's called "Scrollbars vs MS Exchange".

I'm a developer working in a company with multiple offices. I regularly help Admins in various offices troubleshoot problems. What this boils down to is just sending emails with log messages to each other.

It's normal to do this and works quite well, until our Exchange servers started dying on us. It's gotten so bad the company VP is looking to replace Exchange.
Problems aren't getting resolved because emails aren't getting thru. Long-distance phone charges are costing more than Exchange licenses.

So what has this got to do with Stickies?

I have been using StickyNotes by Tenebril to send "lets-go-for-lunch-guys" notes to my colleagues daily. Due to the Exchange problems, I recently started using it to send log messages as well. The Admins love it. It's fast and direct. But unfortunately StickyNotes doesn't hold up well and looses messages frequently.

So I looked around for an alternative and found Stickies by Tom Revell. The Admins love it even more. Especially with the fading effect of transparencies. Now they are thinking to propose this to the VP.

The only problem. Log messages are really long. Hundreds of lines. So not being able to scroll is stopping them from approching the VP.

I tried to convince them the merits of keeping inline with the real post-it notes. Y'don't write code in a post-it note after all. But the convenience of being able to zip log messages around and quickly reading them without having to copy+paste into Notepad seems to be a real issue for them.

I shall say no more lipsrsealed

I'm one of them who would want to keep stickies as simple as it is, no scrollbars. It will stay as it is, elegant and nice.

But scrollbars prove its advantages at times. Why not add such feature as a bonus for user to enable/disable scrollbars?

If adding such feature will bloat the software a lot, then it is alright to keep it as it is. smiley

There is confusion with scroll bar and text scrolling.
I use Stickies for keeping my every day work, take same list of things and i can't scroll text inside it.

I'm not asking for scroll bar, i want text scrolling inside a sticky like another progs do (TurboNote, Quick NotePlus and so on)

Im a new stickies user. I just switched from Apple notebook with OSX to windows and Stickies made my transfer much easier. I used OSX Stickies at work for almost everything, TODO lists, taking notes at meetings, storing temp. info., reminders...

I use Toms Stickies for all these things, and its even better because they have a built in Alarm and Sleep function, so ill probably replace Outlook calendar with this as well.

But the thing with (no) scrolling is really annoying. I dont need ugly scrollbars...but please, make the text scroll inside of a stickie note. I know stickies arent intended to store large amounts of text, but a TODO lists tend to be quite long, and you can get MUCH more stickies on the screen if you keep it 200 pixles tall and scroll text insde instead.

I know real post-it notes dont scroll, but thats why we use computers instead of pen and paper, right ?

Please make them scroll smiley You can make a "pro" version that would scroll and sell it for $14.99, i would buy it smiley

Have just started using Stickies (to work alongside Evernote) and think it is excellent. Sadly within 5 mins, my To Do list for next week grew longer than what I could display in a single screen and I spent about 10mins trying to work out how to get the Sticky to scroll. sad

So I reckon that is a 'Yes, please'.

The thing that strikes me when I read the posts in this thread is a lot of people think adding the ablity to fix the size of the sticky and scroll the text if it is too big for the sticky would affect the program's simplicity. I disagree, very few things are more simple than a scrollbar. Ideally this will be with a visually appealing small scrollbar, but this isnt really necessary. Would be nice to have a visual indicator of position within a large sticky though.

Regarding the idea that this should 100% emulate a real sticky pad, why would you want that? If so, just buy a real sticky pad. When is the last time you were able to teleport a sticky note from your desk to a friends desk? (transmit to...) smiley

Either way, it looks like Tom is looking into this feature for his next version (his reply to my post in Feature Requests). Good news!

I have been using Stickies for awhile now and the program is great and Tom ROCKS!!!

The biggest thing I miss from other note programs is the scroll bar. We often have a to do list or other note that is tempory but long.

This addition would make a great program...perfect.

Tom I really hope you change your mind about scroll bars.

Thanks for listening.

in my opinion there should be an option to switch scroll bar on-off. i personally won't use it (it takes some valuable space), but if somebody wants it... maybe som people use stickies to write love letters smiley

I also think that, looking at this discussion, scrollbars (or some sort of text scrolling) should be an optional feature, turned off by default.

I'm just waiting for this feature to switch from stickypad.

Is there a chance that version 6 already supports this?

Thanks

It's the other reason that I'm silent on scrollbars - I've got no plans to add them.

Ho hum, can't win 'em all eh?

Oh Yeah, Tom? wink

Thks for the effort for putting scrolling functions in.

Stickies rocks!
