MIKLO: sure, but please thank the dev Sam Hocevar too :) [See website link for his email address ... it's at the bottom of the page.]

i like it but i wish it was easier to search for say symbols like dollar signs, ampersands etc and keep all the alphabet letter variations separate. Also, should be able to have a "favorites" tab that the user adds the best ones to.

MIKLO on 2016-01-14 15:06

webfork yes I did thank some time before I posted this, its not something I do often but this App really helped me and made it very easy to do what I was trying to do. Before using WinCompose it was a real nightmare to do things I wanted and most often I failed. So once again thanks for the hard work on this great useful software. ^5

Stickies 9.0a is released. It has a new modern UI.
Lots of other changes: http://www.zhornsoftware.co.uk/stickies/versions.html
Stickies runs on XP SP1, Vista, 7, 8 and 10. Earlier versions of Windows are no longer supported.
For those OS, try an older version of Stickies: http://www.zhornsoftware.co.uk/support/kb.pl?q=00013

Two alternative extraction methods:

First:
Open installer in 7-Zip (File > 7-Zip > Open archive > #);
You'll see two ZIPs inside;
In 2.zip - stickies.exe, in 4.zip - stickies.chm.

Second (if you have WinRAR):
Open installer in 7-Zip;
Inside you'll see stickies.exe;
Open installer in WinRAR;
Inside you'll see stickies.chm.

billon on 2016-08-29 16:51

Correction to first method:
there is now also 6.zip, inside - stickies8.ssk (Stickies Skin?), copy it in created next to stickies.exe and stickies.chm folder "skins"
