An easy way to add sticky notes in bulk

Sticky notes are a great way to record ideas and essential information. They’re so popular that we wanted to make them easier to access and add rapidly. Now, you can quickly add sticky notes without having to drag and drop a new sticky note each time.

How to quickly add sticky notes

If you are adding sticky notes in bulk, you can now add them via the Tool menu.

To add a sticky note:

  1. Go to Tool menu > Sticky Note.
  2. A sticky note creation modal will pop up. Input your text and press Enter or Add to post the sticky note on the diagram.
  3. Select X to close or exit the modal.

After you add a sticky note, the creation modal will remain, so you can continue to input additional sticky notes quickly.
