Hi Manfred, thankyou for the link, I couldn't find the xpad folder as directed in the link under /.config/xpad, but as I was looking in the /.config folder, I soon remembered I had been using the fold back version of ubuntu with Matacity, when I stumbled upon /.config/gnome-applets/sticky-notes/sticky-notes.xml, and everything I wanted was there.

Thanks again
Ross
