Can't Unroll - Windows 10, Stickies 10.0- 10.1 beta Empty Can't Unroll - Windows 10, Stickies 10.0- 10.1 beta

I have only two stickies. Very rarely I can't unroll one or the other with double click on title bar.
I can solve this only with closing and deleting the sticky and reloading the .sti file, and then there is calm for a few months, roll and unroll work well.
Now this occurred in the newly installed 10.1a Beta4 too.

Did you try to roll/unroll using the rightclick menu or the hotkey alt+r ? As it only occurs sometimes it will be difficult to find the cause . Instead of using sti you could simply clone the malfunction sticky using  Ctrl+drag the titlebar it creates a new identical " window " but hopefully without the roll problem .

Restarting stickies does not solve it too ?

Best regards ,

Yes, I tried to roll/unroll using the rightclick menu too, but no difference.
I didn't know about Alt R - where is it specified? I don't see it in Settings/Hotkeys or in rightclick menu, but found in v7.0a changes.

Cloning with Ctrl Drag, closing and deleting the original works fine.


A little bit inconvenient to have to close it first, then delete it from the closed ones. Perhaps direct deletion from the menu could also be allowed.

If a problem occurs again, I'll try these options as well.

Edit: I found Alt R in Stickies help - Keyboard shortcuts too

You can delete a sticky without sending it to the " closed " when you hold shift when clicking the close button. One of the magic places is the keyboard shortcuts topic in the help file .
It is a treasure trove of ideas also the alt r option !   Wink

When you have the problem can you still enter text in the sticky or does it have other problems ? I wonder if Tom Revell will ever find the cause these are nightmarish problems for software developers !

Thank you, Shift click Close or Shift Ctrl D (permanently delete) works fine.
This way I can easily duplicate/recreate the sticky and permanently delete the problematic sticky.
So far the sticky created with .sti worked fine - for a while,


I rarely modify these stickies, mostly I read them, so I don't know, whether I can enter text or not in this state. The only problem I know is that I can't see the text, only the title.

If  the problem occurs again, I will see, what can I do.
