    Default Font Size for Stickies
    Dear all

    Perhaps a stupid question from me....
    I use Stickies quite a lot. However, the default font size is too small for me. Any idea how to increase the default font size?

    Thanks for any advice

    If you select the text you can go to show fonts and vary size or select the size before starting to type. If you want it to be already set when u open a new one then set one up as you like then select it and use as default;

    What does that "Floating Window" menu item do? I didn't notice any change. I looked briefly in Stickies Help but didn't find an answer.

    Thanks Collin Bl
    I know I was asking a stupid question. But somehow or rather, I was not able to figure it out.

    Floating window keeps it in front of 'other windows' but never tested it so not sure if it is all windows or just stickies windows.

    Just tested and yes a Floating Translucent window is on top of all my open apps but can be seen thru the translucent Dock;

    Gotcha. No wonder it didn't look different.

    I tried to find a better term, but, as floating means on the surface, they picked a pretty good word, even though it's not particularly intuitive. But, it's better than foremost, or forefront.
