    Haven't ever heard anything about this, and I'm not sure it's a well known feature.

    Hitting Command + Shift + Y while something is selected.... text, an image, anything, will result in Stickies opening up and copying whatever it is that is selected and putting it in a new note!

    Anybody else know about this before?

    Edit: Doesn't work in Firefox... so maybe only the Desktop and Cocoa apps or whatever it is... can never remember.. cocoa or carbon. I want to say Cocoa.

    LOL I just found this out earlier tonight. I also found out that if you want to change the default font and colours, do it on a note and then select "Use as Default" from the Note menu.
