I would like to see that it would be easier to control the alignment of elements on a form. There are alreay a number of techniques, but many of them are so superficial and sometimes very hard to modify later.
A sample: I have a table cell with an editable text control followed by a text, in my case an indication of the units of that text, and I cannot get it lined out on the same horizontal line.

see LN8.5.1, tables can be resized without using the ruler. Just grap the table and resize!

@1 That is fine when you are so fortunate to work for an organization that uses the latest version of notes, but I am currently bound to Notes 6.5.

Now that i write this, I comes to my mind, that I would like to have a few Ideas implemented in older versions as well. Maybe it is asked too much to go back to Notes 6.5 but Notes 7.0.3 should be at least amongst the target versions.

@2 Another thought: I will submit a new Idea for backward implementation.

@Rob, I think you will find that IBM will only be adding new feature to Notes 8.5+. I feel your pain, as i was stuck using 6.0 for YEARS.

@Peter, I fear that you are absolutely right. Maybe in that case they should make available the source code of these older versions, so I can make the improvements myself. Again, I fear that that will also not happen.
