View Full Version : Stuck on Yellow Stickies

Besides the delayed sleep-to-wake issue, I have one other nuisance I'm looking to resolve. Thank you in advance to anyone who can help.

After a restart, or quitting and rebooting the dashboard process, my stickies revert to yellow, even if the checkbox, under i, is any other color.

Is there a preference file I can edit to fix this? Thanks again.


For the curious, since ML, I'm having the typical, minor issues--laggy ui, sleep-to-wake issue, reading list slow to expand and contract, and dashboard issues.

rMBP 2.6/16/512

Thank you!

I don't have any problem with stickies staying at the color I select. However, this might help...

In Stickies > Color in the menu bar > select color > then Note in the menu bar > check "Use as default". Worth a try, anyway.

I am using the latest Mountain Lion 10.8 on a Retina Macbook Pro

I am also having this issues with the Stickies Dashboard Widget. Every time the widget is refreshed or the machine is restarted, the stickies color reverts to the default yellow.

Steps to Reproduce:

1. Add stickies widget to Dashbokard.
2. Click the " i " button in the lower righthand corner of the widget.
3. Change the Paper Color to any non-default color. i.e. green
4. Click Done.
5. Refresh the widget (Command + R) or restart the computer to reload Dashboard.

Expected Results:

The widget should simply reload as it were before. All previous settings and appearances should remain the same after restart.

Actual Results:

The Stickies Paper Color will incorrectly display as the default Yellow while the widget settings has the correct Paper Color selected.

Notes:

This issue did not occur in 10.7.


Currently, I do not have a solution to this problem.

Decided to call Applecare about this issue. The first person I spoke wasn't familiar with this and searched online. He actually come across this thread and another one the official Apple forums. He said he would inform the engineers about the problem. But that's all I got for now.

Unfortunately, nothing much has changed since I first posted.

The UI still lags, unless I hide the dock, sleep-to-wake is still slow and stalls until the cursor appears, and shut-down times are about 15 seconds, compared to instant-on/off with Lion.

Most importantly, the stickies are still stubborn, yellow and irksome.

I have spoken with a very helpful Apple senior engineer and have sent multiple data captures to him/them. I am awaiting more information and will hopefully update you guys soon.

Thanks again.

I'm having this problem too. They'll probably fix it in 10.8.2

Was in an Apple Store for a Genius Appointment to resolve another issue as well. They found that an rMBP in the store also had this stickies issue.

I had the same problem.
It was expected that this problem will be fixed in 10.8.3, but it was not fixed.
So, I solved the problem by creating a patch for it.

Apply the following patch to "/Library/Widgets/Stickies.wdgt/Stickies.js" at your own risk:p.

Can this cause problem with future official update or with maverick?
Or any known official fix?

Or any known official fix?A furture update would replace the .js file so there should be no issues from having applied the patch. However, I would be careful applying the patch to Mavericks - make sure you save the original file if you try and apply the patch. And only apply the patch if the file looks the same in Maverocks and of course only if it is still needed.
