Improve sticky notes

Review Request #124246 - Created July 3, 2015 and submitted

This patch adds the following improvements to the sticky notes applet:

  • A config dialog with previews of the individual colors, the ability to change the font size, and font color - are there any other important options the 4.x one had?

  • Ctrl+Mousewheel to change font size, I always used this "feature" in 4.x and was disappointed that it would not actually save the font size

  • Focus the input field when expanding the applet (eg. when it is in a panel, click the note, start typing)

  • Drag and drop support so you can now drag files and text snippets into the sticky note

  • Better keyboard navigation: you can now place a sticky note in your panel, assign a shortcut to it, press it, note down your thoughts, and close the note again

Changing the font size from the config dialog and mousewheeling seems to work without screwing up your existing formatting.

Unfortunately the config dialog is quite difficult to get to since right clicking the text area yields the standard copy/paste menu and I failed to manually add another item for the applet config there
