I ran into a problem on Windows 10 when trying to add a simple check mark to my notepad. For whatever reason the "my.notes" file was saved as "Encoding UTF-8" and I ran into the same problem with other apps similar to this one. The fix is simple. You can find the file here -> "\Rainmeter\Skins\easy-art\minimal\notes\my.notes". Now just open the file with Notepad. Select: File > Save As.., And at the bottom if you see "Encoding UTF-8" this is wrong. Now change it to "UTF-16 LE" as used by Windows Notepad and Save. Refresh the skin and it should display the Unicode in Rainmeter. :)
However there's something that is driving my crazy and that's how it expands into a full sized note. Is there any way to manually modify from where it starts expanding? For some reason if I put it at the bottom of my screen, the icon expands from the middle so there's no way to put anything near it since otherwise it will overlap. Same happens if I put it on the right side, it expands both ways.
Here is my problem:
and how I would like it to expand, without overlapping with my Gmail thingy. But sure, I don't really mind that it currently looks like this:
but it would have been cool to put it next to my Gmail thing. Regardless, keep up the good work.
