Awesome. But... 1) The OS 9 look is not very nice. If you are gonna use it, make the scrollbar os-9ish too. I think the user should have a choice of old style, or a black shinny-dashboard type theme.
2) If I remember correctly, didn't the page go to the next page when the corner "flip" button was selected??

Yah, I'd like it to have the black, shiny, theme, otherwise I'd still go with WikiWidget. Is there a possibility of changing fonts and/or bold/italics?

I am seriously impressed with this widget. It's amazingly true to life (which was the point to all of you who don't appreciate the classic theme). It resizes beautifully, better than any other widget, which makes it easy to have it in my dashboard. Not to mention its function and functionality are both supreme. Kepp up the good work, Kalleboo.

EXCELLENT. A NO brainer replacement of the ill fated yellow thing apple put as a standart widget. Kudos!

I put this right next to my dancing Jebus, now it has the power of JAMMIN' CHRIST! Rock on man, this notepad beats the slacks off of the default one for sure, thanks.

Awesome widget, mang. To be honest, I wasn't too impressed before this version, but its just great. Voted 555 my good s.ir

The latest version is awesome. Thanks for the popup numbers (so in around a year I can easily get to page 777 instead of flipping one by one) and the sounds!

This is a great widget! Beats the pants off of Apple's own yellow note thing.

This widget will be the first one featured in the next edition of the Fruity News.

Great widget!

And now it's even better! I love you!

Posted by: Attila on May 23, 05 (7:17 PM) for version 1.4 (previous version)  

Great widget -- I'd normally give it five stars, but recently it has a propensity to freeze. It shows blank, with the little rounded arrow loading image on the bottom.

I love this widget! Could we have retro scroll bars and font too? Thanks for a great widget!

Use a matching scroll bar. You should not use Aqua controls on a widget's front panel.

Unfortunately, it's not possible to replace the Aqua scroll bar, while retaining drag/drop support, and scroll wheel support. This is a limitation of WebKit.

I can't get the ClassicNotePad widget, which I really like, to work with MacOS Leopard 10.5.6 even though it worked well with Tiger 10.4 Any ideas?
