Invisible stickies when using multiple monitors

on Fri Apr 13, 2018 10:34 am

I'm using Stickies V9.0e and it is a very usefull and helpfull app.

But I have the following problem, that is going on my nerves a little bit :-)

In the office I`m using 2 external monitors and I have placed all Stickies on the right monitor, which is not configured as the main display.
On business trips or in my homeoffice I`m using just 1 display (integrated laptop display).

So when I'm working with one monitor, all stickies are invisible, because they are places outside the display (think you are storing the absolute position). I can see and use them if I start the menu "manage stickies" (right click on the task bar icon).

Is there a possibiltiy to move all stickies automatically on the main monitor, if just one monitore is active?

Thanks for your help in advance & best regards,

You can get all the notes back onto the primary screen by using the Rescue Offscreen function, but that's probably not what you want.  It's not what the function was designed to do, so although it will get the notes back into view, they won't land neatly, and their original positions will be forgotten.

There was a tool called Stickies Layout Save which a user had developed, but that was on the old forum which got taken down a month or two ago, and I didn't think to take a copy of it ... so that won't help you.  It used the API to store sets of layouts, as the name might suggest.

Is that what you want to do, essentially store two different sets of positions for when you're using the two different screen layouts?
