  2. Grid / corkboard view

    Ability to show notes in grid view and the ability to rearrange them by dragging and dropping in this view as if on a corkboard. This way we can arrange them by importance or topic or whatever way we think works best for us. Similar to the functionality of Google Keep, which already has this option.

  4. Bring back the floating notes in Tablet Mode!

    Sticky Notes used to float in both Desktop and Tablet mode for Windows 10. The recent update broke this feature. If I want to write in half or full window mode, I'll put the information into Onenote. I specifically downloaded Sticky Notes for its floating feature and now that's gone.

  6. When using docked mode, please add a feature to copy from it without having to open the note first

    It would be great to be able to copy from the note if you use docked mode, without having to open the note first.

  8. Is it possible to only see the notes list

    Is it possible to just view the notes list and not the actual notes? I dont want all the sticky notes clogging up my desktop. Just being able to view the list and not all the individual notes would be ideal.

  9. Open sticky notes automatically when starting computer

    My sticky notes used to open when i started my computer and appear all over the screen the way I had left them so I could see them immediately. Now I have to open them and scroll down the list so they are no longer useful as reminders for me. Can this be changed to how it was?

  12. Title for Sticky Notes

    If there is an option to put the file name or date to the Sticky Notes that would be great. Because as per the requirement we can create the Sticky Notes and can compare the completed works whether we have done it in stipulated time or not and more....

  14. attaching sticky notes to files

    it would be nice if you could actually stick the sticky note within other apps on your computer. say for example I've created a folder that has sub folders but before you go messing with the subfolders there's a sticky note that has whatever info on it.

  18. Design me a better way to connect Sticky Notes that are related / have like ideas in OneNote

    Design me a better way to cluster / group / connect Sticky Notes that are related or have like ideas in OneNote so that I can get the most important information from them with only a quick glance.

    Over the course of a week I create sticky notes as reminders of key takeaways from design meetings, discussions with other developers, feature envisioning work etc. Going into each subsequent meeting or discussion, I want to be able to brief myself on what the prior takeaways were by quickly looking at my iPhone or iPad.

  19. Allow use of symbols

    The previous version of Sticky Notes allowed me to use symbols (Win7) and the current version (Win10) does not. Please allow symbols in Notes again. Thank you.
