10.5: Quick note creation in Mail via AppleScript
Authored by: osxpounder on Jul 10, '08 10:48:55AM

I use an alternative method:

I click an empty space in Finder and then do CMD-SHIFT-Y, which opens Stickies and creates a new Stickie note.

Sometimes I just click the Desktop, which will lead to a Stickie with a folder icon in it, but I just backspace once and type my note. If I had a folder or file selected when I made a Stickie [should I say "Sticky"?], the note has an icon that looks like that item. It seems to be just an icon, as far as I can tell.

I don't have to save Stickies [though I can export a note], so it's pretty darn quick. Just do the keystroke, and start typing. We can also put the Stickies app in our Dock or Finder toolbar, and I just discovered we can even put it in our Finder sidebar [all this in Leopard].

I don't want you to think I'm saying my way is better than your hint -- I'm glad you posted your hint. Just wanted to share this, too, since it's related.
