Looking For Great Sticky Notes, Document, And Web Annotation Tools? Quick Notes Plus And NoteZilla May Be The Answer

January 2nd, 2008 · 2 Comments · Time Management, Project Tools & Productivity

I’ve been looking for good a good Sticky Note application for a while now. I’ve looked at several such as MyStickies, but had not quite found one that provides all the features I need.

Today I may have found a winner!

Here’s the post I read in Google Answers:

I'm searching for a "post-it" software that allows to create post-it
like notes that can be attached to particular windows or applications.
When the window appears the note appears, when the windows disappears
the note disappears...

I found that StickyNote 9.0, Quick Notes Plus, Ptimemo, Mystickies and
the next version of Stickies (6.0) should have this feature but it] is
implemented very primitively in these programs.

Is there a better program with this feature?

So I kept reading, and it seems I may have found a winner here.

The application is called Quick Notes Plus and is produced by ConceptWorld, a company in Chennai, India. They have since created a premium version called NoteZilla.

You can get a copy of Quick Notes Plus Here, and NoteZilla Here.

    Notezilla is coming close to what I’m looking for, however I am encountering a problem.

    I have eight clients who each have separate folders. Within these folders, I save their booking files in folders by month.

    I am finding that if I stick a sticky note to the June folder in one client folder, it shows up in the June folder for all clients.

    Is there a way to get Notezilla to save sticky notes to specific file paths, rather than just the folder name?

    Hello @User,

    It is possible to stick notes to specific Windows Explorer folders. It just requires a change in Windows Explorer settings.

    We have written a post on this over here:
