    Well I thought it was perfect until I found that clicking on Search Box to type “sticky Notes”, I found that it was grayed out and I could not type. Any ideas to allow the use of this search box ?

    How can you change the fonts to some I likve better in the sticky notes, and why can’t I make my script bigger as it said in the tips…. I hit ctrl, shift and the arrow key.. and it’s still the same size….not as big as the script shown in your example.
