« Thread started on: Nov 21st, 2016, 03:08am »

I really like the flat look of stickies9, but stickies8 has the perfect proportions.

How can I shrink the size of stickies9's title bar to the size of stickies8's?

thanks

Here's a modified version of the stickies 9 default skin which was posted somewhere on the forum months ago. It has a shorter title bar. But the stack skin was also modified to show smaller text. Does this suit you better?

It's definitely an improvement. I'll try it out for a day or so to see if it's good enough.

Thanks Cynthia 👍👍

I've gone back to stickiesv8, for a few reasons:

1) stickiesv9mod's minimum size meant that a one-line or two-line sticky (at the same width) took up almost as much screenspace as a three-line sticky

2) too much whitespace around the sticky content. If I compare 3 stickies of mine that were clustered vertically at 232px wide, stickiesv9mod requires 324px in height while the same stickies only need 252px in height with stickiesv8

3) the inability of toggling 'always on top' via mouse (i.e. you need to CTRL+T)

3) scrollbars don't seem to work properly

Using this skin solves my size issues (so far) anyway smiley

I presume you're referring to the font size on stacks.

Just in case you're unaware of it, on the download page of each skin, we can determine from info in the lower left corner whether the skin has its own stack skin.
