I absolutely love this product. I use it on most of my sites because it has a really nice way of allowing me to provide links to administrators and collaborators about the template and it's ins-and-outs.

Just needs a little polishing. Animated dropdown not neccessary. It would be good if width expanded as you write. Auto-save would be good.

It is nice and simple but on the dashboard I needed to create a note that I can keep updated or delete. There was no option to edit/delete the note, or it was not obvious enough. When I added a note, it did not populate in the next widget box for Saved.
