I want to run two or more Apple Stickies applications, but when I make a copy of the Stickies application, the copy uses the same 'Stickies file' (located in the preferences folder).
How can I get to run two+ Stickies?

The answer is simple, but requires the use of Apple's ResEdit.

Download ResEdit from <ftp://ftp.info.apple.com/Apple.Support.Area/Apple.Software.Updates/US/Macintosh/Utilities/ResEdit_2.1.3.sea.hqx>

Here's what to do.

Make a duplicate of the Stickies programme.  Open it in ResEdit, and double click the STR# icon.  A window will pop open and you will see a list of items.  The first is called "Filenames".  Double click to view it.

Where it says:

2)  ******      ________________________
The string     |  Stickies file         |
               |________________________|

Change Stickies file to Stickies file2.


Quit Resedit and save.

You now have two different Stickies applications which open separate sticky files.

Enjoy!

I hope this answers all your questions.
