Option to change text size/color in Image stickies

Text:
I would prefer to use a smaller text size to be able to annotate screenshots I capture with some notes. The current larger text size often forces me to put the text over the captured image, covering it.
+
All the text gets entered in a single line without wrapping. This also limits the amount of text one can put on an image sticky. Would be better to have a resizable box like MS-Word or Paint to put text in and format it as required.

Colour:
- Sometimes the annotated next needs to be put on a screenshot that has a black background which renders the text unreadable.
- It will be great to have multiple colours for the text to be able to use a different colour for different types of comments.

Use the wheel!

Roll the mouse wheel as you're laying down the text, then do so with shift held down, and then with control held down.

Also, the text gets laid in the currently selected pen colour, so right-click and change that to alter the text colour.

Thanks Tom. Is there a way to get it to do the same without a mouse. I use a laptop without a mouse.

Huh, no, I never considered that. Some trackpads allow for mouse wheel emulation using two fingers, but not all of them.

I'll make a note to look at adding a keyboard shortcut for changing font size.
