Discover a Sticky note's creation and modification dates
Authored by: Zali on Sep 15, '07 01:47:58AM
I'm running Mac OS v10.4.10 and Stickies v5.1.0.

On one of my Stickies, I can hover on the closed title bar, or anywhere on the open Stickie (including the title bar), in order to display the creation/modification dates. And yes, I have to move the mouse cursor off of that open Stickie to make the date info disappear.

On my other five Stickies, I can only produce the creation/modification dates by hovering over the closed title bar. When those Stickies are open, nothing appears.

Searching Stickies Help using the term 'date', I found this:

Showing when a sticky note was created and last edited

Stickies stores information about each sticky note you created, including the dates it was created and most recently modified.

Position the pointer over the sticky note.

In a few seconds, the note's file information appears.

The five uncooperative Stickies were all created between 11/04 and 9/06. The cooperative Stickie was created last week. Therefore, I'm hypothesizing that older Stickies created under Panther and/or earlier versions of Tiger (and/or earlier versions of Stickies) display the date info only when hovering on the closed title bar. Stickies created using more recent versions of Tiger (and/or Stickies) display the date info when hovering anywhere, as advertised. (I didn't switch to Tiger until early '07, btw.)

Creating a new test Stickie I find that, yes, the date info shows up when I hover anywhere on that open or closed note, too.

Perhaps someone else who has old Stickie notes but is running the latest versions of the Mac OS and Stickies program can confirm these hovering distinctions.

Good tip, in any case, and useful comments. Thanks!

P.S. By "closed" I meant "minimized," of course.

I can confirm your findings. My stickie notes behave the exact same way.
