According to the article Apple Confirms Dashboard is Going Away After 14 Years, dashboard has been removed within macOS 10.15, Catalina. I had some Stickies with information stored in dashboard and I would like to recover it if possible.
There are currently a couple known methods to recover stickies (or anything else that was on the dashboard).
Stickies from the dashboard have automatically been imported into the Stickies application. Simply open
/Applications/Stickies.appand they will appear there.
All widget save data/preferences are still in the original place. This means that as per https://superuser.com/a/608039, the plist for the dashboard stickies are in
The most obvious: before updating to Catalina copy over your stickies to different place such as text edit or the stickies app.
Note: In this file they are stored within html tags that are in HTML Entity form. You can use a converter and then strip tags.
