Sticky notes bug with XAC and JoyToKey

If using a XAC d-pad for cursor movement (remapping using the very popular JoyToKey remapping software) you'll notice that Sticky notes behaves badly when you push UP (to simulate cursor up).

This is because even without JoyToKey, using the XAC or any joystick type device is picked up by Sticky Notes, but UP for some reason is mapped to the TAB key. Meaning you can access sticky notes, but can never simulate an UP key press. Very frustrating, and renders Sticky Notes nearly useless for such users.

Here's a little on XAC being used as a mouse device to show (a little of) the principle: https://switchgaming.blogspot.com/2018/09/specialeffect-xac-videos.html
