Opening Domino Designer is still a pain even in 8.5.1 if I have applications in the navigator pointing to servers I do not have access. this will cause domino designer to freeze or take forever to open.
I have to use kill notes every time.
I now have 2 applications in the navigator pointing to different customers,. no matter what ID I am using there is now an application in the navigator poingin to a server that I have no access to , so I can't open designer.

This has been bugging me for years. I've mentioned this multiple times at BOF sessions at Lotusphere.
It is annoying because it takes more time, and because you're asked to cross-certify, but I've never needed to kill Notes !

Does control-break not work?

Another workaround is to edit your LMHosts file to point to your test server. Will barf, but at least you won't be waiting.

I've never had to to kill nlnotes and notes2w either for this. However, control break doesn't make it stop. You can kill it via the progress control (click the yellow circle when the green dots are showing a background task) stop icon.
