We’ve applied a limitation to a number of stickies on a canvas

In some browsers, it caused an error to view a canvas with too many stickies.
To avoid this problem, we’ve limited the number of stickies on a canvas to 120. If you put more than 120 stickies on one canvas, the oldest stickies will disappear. They’ll be visible again when you remove other stickies.

  2. I was really thrown off when stickies starting disappearing all of sudden. I realized only after a few minutes that the only way to know that stickies will be hidden if there are too many to display is with a message that drops down for a few seconds and then disappears.

    If the max number of stickies/canvas is 120, the user should receive an error message when they attempt to post their 121st sticky. Even better, users should be told up front that they can post no more than 120. I was attempting to use this app to document notes from a large project, but I’m no longer sure that this program can meet my needs.

    I’m now going to have to start deleting my less important stickies in hopes that the other, now invisible, yet important, stickies will reappear.

  3. I found this post when I was about to renew my premium and decided I should figure out what that “too many stickies” oh-so-brief banner meant. I of course had continued to post without realizing I was forcing other stickies off the canvas. Without a way to see the “disappeared” stickies, or even to be notified which ones are going away, this makes this program completely unusable for the ongoing purpose I was using it for. I’m glad I looked into it before renewing. Not pleased that now I’ll have to start transferring the info one sticky at a time so I can recover whatever items are now lost. Too bad–loved it.

  4. “Too many stickies” message is shown when you post a huge number of stickies on a canvas. It means that some old stickies on the canvas will be hidden, although these stickies will NOT be removed. If you remove any stickies or move them to another canvas, the hidden stickies will appear again.

  6. Hello!

    Is it possible to increase the limit to 200 or so. Or make it configurable in user profile if someone has problems with large amount ..
    I’ve reached a 120 limit and now don’t know what to do 🙁

    I really need it.

    Thank you,
