A yellow sticker is not just a yellow sticker – have a look

Need to place a sticky note?

Instead of clicking on (1), right click on the preview, where you want the sticker to be placed, and choose New Sticky Note (2). The sticky note will be placed exactly where the mouse was.

Want the same sticker to appear in more than one place?
If the same text message has to be placed in several sticky notes, you can create just one sticky note, but make it a multi-sticker (3). This is faster and provides a better overview.

Attaching files?

You can attach files (4) to all your stickers, regardless of whether the files are from Word, Excel, JPG, etc. and no matter what the file size. When the file is attached and saved, the attachment will be indicated by a clip on the envelope at both (5) and (6). When the sticker is stored, the content of the file will be displayed when you mouse over the clip (7) and you will have the option to download the file.
You can also attach an animation/flash/video or PDF using 3D and see them run during a mouseover. This way you can see animation and place a sticky note directly on the preview.

Why change colors?

When the designer has made a correction, she can show this by changing the color of the Sticky Note (8). This way, other designers can quickly see the status of corrections on the page and can jump in to help. You can also use a change in the color of a note as a reminder to yourself. Your Mac/PC will remember the color until you select a new one.

How far into the document are you?

When people other than yourself have placed a Sticky Note, you will see a bold frame around that note (9). You can remove the bold frame by opening the envelope (10). This way you can see how far you have come in the document. Your Mac/PC will remember this as well. When all the Sticky Note envelopes are no longer bold, the red needle on the thumbnail changes to gray. The result is that even a glance at the thumbnail level will provide you with a good overview.

Learning to use the pointer box?

The pointer box (11) is a unique reference number that you can refer to in other sticky notes or even on other pages. The first character in the pointer box is the page number and the next character indicates which number on the page the pointer box has.

You can change the type of the pointer box, translate it, or mark the text. You can also add sticky notes, do freehand drawing, draw boxes, allow others to change the text, or even make a text correction directly yourself without involving the designer. But we will present this option and much more in future Tips & Tricks.
