Context Note
« on: August 26, 2015, 01:37 PM »
Context Note is a “sticky” note application that allows you to save notes based on the current active window. When you create a new note and then go to another window, the note is automatically saved. When you come back to that window the note will come back.

For more info and to download, please go to http://vdsfreak.com/...3251200/context-note

So what happens if the attached Window no longer exists?

And I think Anand has something like this.

And there are subtle issues when you do like it so much you create like 400 stickies over time.

I think you might have misunderstood the term 'subtle' ;D ;D ;D

I don't think I did.
:P

"So, you open the master repository of stickies in Dexpot node seven, then you can create new stickies relevant to the context in the other six nodes, but if you ever have to close down your stickies program you lose the context awareness and they all get smashed together when you re-open it".

Subtle.

There is a list feature that you can get to all the notes even if the window doesn't exist. Also, the notes are saved as text file and can easily be deleted if needed. If you watch the video you will see the list mode.

 Refer: Re: Extremely simple and minimal sticky notes for windows
Not sure if it's quite what you want, but DC member anandcoral wrote Stick-A-Note.  IainB's review is here: Stick-A-Note + Universal Viewer - Mini-Review

There was a very simple Stickynotes by Toren K. Smith at http://www.cs.utexas.edu/users/tbone , but that page has gone (WayBackMachine?).  Or, take a look at KNot v2.04b

Yes, I wondered whether Stick-A-Note might fit the bill for lifeh2o.
Stickynotes by Toren K. Smith is in the Wayback (I just looked) - e.g., http://web.archive.o...xas.edu/users/tbone/
He has apparently moved his website and Stickynotes to http://www.torensmith.com/?page_id=9
The Stickynotes version there is the same as the latest download from the Wayback pages (identical file hashes) - i.e., v2.0.0.4 (2004-09). Apparently, it's not been developed since. I haven't tried it out, but I did take an archive copy of both the .ZIP and .EXE (installer) files as I was fossicking about. He only offers the installer file now at torensmith.com.

The old online Stickynotes User Guide is here: http://web.archive.o...tickynotes-docs.html
