Hi, thanks for making a fuctional program that is both
nice and lil' at the same time.

While using it i noticed two things 'missing'

New notes overlap on another in the specified corner
(default: bottom-right) unless i move them one at a
time.

- Is it possible to automatically position new notes on
top of a previous note starting at a specified location
(e.g. bottom-right) and moving towards another location
(e.g. top-right, or bottom-left)?

- Alternatively, Slide-right-notes (or left) could snap
to eachother, e.g. the bottom-edge of note A could snap
to the top-edge of note B.

- Yet another possibility would to stack Slide-right-
notes (or left) at an interval of a specified amount of
pixels. When set to e.g. 50px, notes would overlap
while at the same time there would be enough clear
space to access the underlying note.

I'd like a feature like snap to window, or a 'magnet'
which allows me to easely arrange notes in an orderly
fashion. A magnet-function like the one used by Winamp
would also allow me to move multiple notes at once.

I hope my findings will be of use to you.
Thanks

    You posted basically just what I wanted to say. :-)

    A small addition: Would make life easier if the notes
    slided to the left or right (why not top?) could be moved
    by dragging tjem with the mouse. Currently I must slide
    them back in, move them and slide them to the side again,
    hoping my eyes gave me the proper hight, so no overlapping
    will occur. minor annoyance, but together with what has
    been said this yould make handling notes much easier.

    Very nice idea. Will however take time to realise.
