Default and saved Themes in ShixxNOTE
By default in ShixxNOTE program you have 11 default themes. This notes can not be deleted. But you can always change note and title color, note font and after that if you like your new customized theme you can save it under your own name. That saved note will appear on every note. So you create new note and apply your saved Theme and voila colors and font is changed. I have about 20 Themes on my computer. But I am always playing with colors. Also there is option that every new created note have random Theme. Check that under main program settings. On this image you can see only 11 default notes which will be avaiable in version 7.net which will be released soon. If you have some cool note themes you can send me note by email and then I can save your note theme in my theme collection.

ShixxNOTE 7.net New version release date
It is time for new version of my program ShixxNOTE. There are lot of changes (autodetect URL in note text, transparency, etc.) and few bug fixes in program which you will be able to see on page "What's new" on program home page. Default ShixxNOTE language is English new version will be localized on German, Spanish and Italian language. New program version ShixxNOTE 7.net will work on any Windows platform. It doesn't need any framework or runtime so you can install program on old Windows 95 or new Windows 7. Still program is written in C++ and because of that it is quick, small and neat. It is client/server application so you have to enable in your Firewall program default ShixxNOTE program port "2000" or just click on button "Allow access" on dialog which appears on first program start on Windows 7. You have to do that if you want program to work properly in your LAN (sending and receiving notes). Because one program thread is listening on default port for received note data. In new version there is new function for reading your network (LAN) at program startup and it is faster then previous one. New version release will be available for download in December 2012.On this image you can see screen shot of ShixxNOTE 7.net beta version (click to see larger picture):
