    Hi there new to Macs but having a problem, albeit, a small one but I just cant seem to fix it.

    I mistakenly saved one of the yellow stickies which I love so much a few days ago, to a txt file. Since then, no matter what I do they still all open up as stickies at first, when new but if i save any of them, no matter what I do now they will ONLY save in text format.
    I can no longer get them to save in the default yellow sticky format but they now always save in text format only.

    Any ideas HOW I can save a sticky again so it saves and re-opens up as a yellow sticky instead of a text file?

    Normal and expected behaviour with Leopard stickies.
    You get the option to save a sticky when you try to close it. It will be lost if closed and not saved.
    The only save options are plain text, RTF & RTFD. You cannot save a sticky as a sticky, just leave it in the desktop. Stickies can be rolled up to save room by double clicking on the top of it..
