I use Xpad 1.13 in Mandrake 10.1 (GTK+ 2.4.9). The chief problem is that
I cannot resize the notes ("pads") -- neither by left dragging the lower
right corner nor by CTL-right dragging anywhere. The moment I'm done,
the thing snaps back to its original size.
Also, must it occupy space on the toolbar?

Odd. What window manager?

New versions tell the desktop not to do that.
Version 1.13 is pretty ancient at this point. Searching for xpad on
http://rpm.pbone.net/ shows me some much newer Mandrake RPMs. Try one

Well, alright. Note that I'm not planning to maintain the 1.x line of
xpad, so the fixes to these problems won't be backported.
Nothing you can really do about the pads showing up in the taskbar in
For the resizing issue, I'm not sure what's causing it. What window
manager (and version) are you using again?
As a workaround, you could set the default size of pads setting in
~/.xpad/default-style and all new pads would have that desired size (or
change individual pads in their info-* files)...
Some window managers also let you resize by ALT-dragging. Or can you
enable window manager decorations and then resize using its border?
