Collapse notes in Stickies a la window shade Apps
I don't know if previous releases have had this ability, but it's definitely in the 10.2 version of Stickies. If you double click on a Sticky, the note collapses into the title bar, much like window shade worked in OS 9 (and WindowShadeX does in X). It also puts the first line of the note into the title bar, giving a quick summary. This saves me so much space on my desktop!

...the function was there in previous versions of OS X as well as system 9 and backwards.
A very good one, when you know about it.

Still not as good as OS 9 Stickies

In OS 9, Option Clicking the expand icon would collaspe a stickie to its Window bar. Then by resizing and moving the sticky, it was possible to position the sticky anywhere on the screen. Option clicking to expand the sticky would then expand it into its pre collapsed state. i.e. full size text and in its previous postion.

Doing this enabled me to to have a tiy collection of stickies on the screen.

Under OS X the sticky just expands from its current position and maintains its collapsed window width!!!

I nolonger use stickies because of this. Poor show Apple.
