Mendeley Desktop v1.16-dev2

Features and Improvements

The Sticky Note Editor Widget

Continuing our improvements to annotations, this version includes a new design for the sticky note bubbles and notes in the right hand panel. The new note design includes who authored the note and allows you to delete a note without needing to right-click on the sticky note icon (though this is still possible). The note window now also resizes based on the content inside it. Please let us know what you think.
