10 things you may not know about QNP sticky notes

  1. You can use Ctrl+Plus and Ctrl+Minus keys to toggle between your favorite sticky note color. Use these keys from inside a sticky note.
  2. You can access the note menu, the title menu and the format menu using the shortcut keys Alt+N, Alt+T and Alt+F respectively.
  3. Desktop sticky note can have a rich shadow effect (Only on Windows XP systems or higher) ? To enable this option just go to General Preferences|Notes tab and choose the button “Shadow and Transparency…”.
  4. To immediately attach a sticky note to the current application, press Ctrl+Shift+W from inside the sticky note.
  5. QNP can be very useful if you login to many different websites. Just save the username/password to a sticky note and stick the note to that website. Each time you visit that website, the sticky note will popup with the username/password.
  6. You can configure QNP such that the note appears immediately when an alarm activates. Just go to General Preferences|Alarms tab and select the option – “Popup ‘Alarm Due’ window when an alarm activates”. The default behavior is that the note will appear only when you click on the animated clock on the taskbar.
  7. To paste unformatted text inside a note, hold shift when pasting the text. For example, you would actually press Shift+Ctrl+V instead of Ctrl+V. This feature is especially useful when copying and pasting text from a web site.
  8. To create a new note based on a particular skin inside a memoboard, just hold “Ctrl” and click on the first button of the memoboard toolbar. Make sure you click on the drop down arrow of the first button.
  9. You can actually create hyperlinks to local files/folders in a sticky note? For example, if you have a file “C:\My Documents\My Proposal.doc”, just type inside a sticky note. The ‘<' and '>‘ characters are required if the path contains spaces.
  10. To shutdown QNP from command line, just run the following command: “C:\Program Files\Conceptworld\QNPlus\QNPlus.exe” /ShutDown. This feature is useful when you need to automatically backup QNP data files to another folder or when synchronizing QNP data files with another computer.
  11. Bonus :) I hope you are aware of the new version of QNP called Notezilla . If you haven’t tried Notezilla, then I strongly suggest that you install on your computer. All notes from QNP will be automatically imported. Also, Notezilla will install as a separate program so that you can revert back to QNP anytime.
