Controls whether moving an adornment also drags any notes wholly or partially on top of it.

This attribute only affects adornments, setting it in other objects such as notes has no effect.

If an adornment is sticky, objects (including other adornments, notes, agents, and containers) that overlap the adornment will move when the adornment is repositioned. This makes it much easier to work with moving sections of very large, complex maps.

Note that, while moving a sticky adornment moves notes on top of it, items on a 'sticky' adornment can still be moved independently, either on the adornment or to move them off it. In the latter case the object is no longer 'stuck' to the adornment. Moving an item off a sticky adornment has no effect on the adornment itself.
