Many thanks for the advice. I have succesfully placed the stickies database into the library.
However, my stickies are not appearing..
Any ideas on how to get stickies or dashboard to now use this database?!
PS: For anyone that wants to find hidden files:
Found a useful site that explained how to use terminal to see the hidden files
The stickies database corresponds to the stickies app.
I checked the app and teh database seems to have been accepted and is being used by the app. So we are ok on that front -thanks again!
However, I just realised that what I was trying to do was move my DASHBOARD stickies across!
I have started a new thread discussion regarding this new question if you are up to the challenge.
Essentially I have gone into my library preferences and moved the plist file for the stickies widget from one computer to another. But dashboard appears to ignore this file and continues to use it sprevious stickies info. (Even when I physically delete and replace the plist file taht was there already)
Any thoughts? thread can be found here:
I've migrated Library/StickiesDatabase from 10.6 to same folder in 10.8
Stickies app does not load it. It loads a default sticky.
I've read 10.8 stores data in a file I don't remember well its name but it is something like widget......stickies.plist
How to convert old fashion database to new one. I'm not sure if this would work, I don't see such plist file.
