The StickyNote is a tool for adding short messages or instructions to the user interface. They are only visible if enabled in the View menu or by using [Ctrl + Alt + N].

To create a StickyNote widget choose "Widgets > StickyNote". The mouse cursor changes to a crosshairs icon, indicating the create mode. With a left-click anywhere on the empty main background window you add the selected widget to the current page. Left-click again if you like to add one more. To quit the create mode, you can switch to the run mode with [F8], where you can use all widgets.

To edit the StickyNote properties simply right-click it and choose the first menu entry "StickyNote Properties". Alternatively, you can press [Alt + P] whilst the mouse is hovering above it or switch to the edit / move mode with [F9] and double-click on it. The StickyNote property dialog opens up.
