I recently opened my Stickies app. and found all of my stickies were gone. I found them intact in the User/Library/Preferences/Stickies database. I have also located the stickies plist. Now the problem is I can't figure how to get the stickies app. to open all the sticky notes. I am sure it is simple, but I haven't figured it out yet.

iMac, Mac OS X (10.5.5), None

    Hello and Welcome to Apple Discussions ...

    Have you looked in your Applications folder? Double click your MacintoshHD icon on your Desktop. The Finder window that opens will have your Applications folder. The Stickies app will be in there. Select the Stickies app icon, then Control+ Click. When the menu opens select Open. While Stickes is open, it will be in your Dock. Select the Stickies icon in the Dock, then click: Keep In Dock. That way it's always handy!

    Thanks for the response.I guess I wasn't clear about my problem. I have no problem finding and opening the stickies app which I do keep in the Dock. However when I open the app. all of my stickies have disappeared even though they are all still in the Stickies data base. I am trying to find a way to make them reappear in the stickies app as they did before.

    Ok, try this... /Users/YourName/Library/Preferences. Drag this file from the Preferences folder to the Trash, empty the Trash and reboot. com.apple.Stickies.plist After you reboot try to launch the Stickies app. Your Mac will create a new pref file for you after the app is launched.

    If that doesn't work, try Pacifist. It can extract the Stickies app from your Mac restore disk.

    It Worked. I also had to delete the Stickies app and replace it with one I had previously backed up. Thanks.
