add icons to stickie? .. extra impact
Post by danx55 on Mar 31st, 2017, 03:45am

hi Tom,

was wondering - is it possible to paste icon graphics into a stickie? ... was thinking would be cool way for extra impact for specific items you wanted to highlight or focus on

many thanks

Well small images can already get pasted in of course, but perhaps you don't mean that?

Did you try to paste from another app already and have it not work?

hi Tom,
thanks for reply
just had a quick play with pasting in some clip art icons...

1.does it only allow icons to be pasted in a non text stickie?
..I couldn't see how to paste icon into stickie once it had text

2.when paste icon into a new stickie, it snaps the size of the stickie to just be that of the pasted icon :/

thanks
dan

If you paste an image into a completley empty sticky, then the sticky becomes an image sticky, and so changes the way that it behaves. It gets more image editing options.

If you paste an image into a text note which has any content at all, then the image is added to the text. Perhaps the app you're copying from has some trouble - it depends on exactly what sort of content is on the clipboard. Stickies accepts bitmaps, so content from Paint, or a screen grab will come over OK.

What's the app with the source image in it which you're having trouble with?
