I always work on locale replicas. So it would be great if there was a new option that saved the current design and then replicated it to the last selected server I used in one action. It would probably help me stave off a repetitive strain injury due to the inordinate amount of small mouse movements a simple replication takes - well at least for a few more years.

And moreover it would make it easier not to forget to replicate, in case you are working simultaneously on several databases.

What kind of save is meant here? Saving each single designelement? That's pretty much like working remote. Or is your intention more towards replicating when closing all designelements of a Database (sorry - Application)?

When thinking about the problems with xpages, auto build project and replication, I'm sorry, but I can't support this.

Even the first option (saving any designelement = replicating database) sounds not that good to me :-(

We current have 'save'.

If you are working locally on a replica making design changes there is a point where you want your changes to be replicated to your development or live server. Therefore what I'm suggesting is that ***A NEW*** option 'Save and Replicate' that does all that in a single click.

Note: I do not propose changing the current functionality of save. Replicating on save for everything would create countless problems and would be something I would demote.

I used to have a Smart Icon that did this. It used something like the following code:-
@If( @Command([FileSave]);
@Command([ReplicatorReplicateSelected]) ;
"" );

But Toolbars have a mind of their own in R8.5.1, and I can never get my personal designer Toolbar to appear when I need it. Please fix it Maureen et al in the Designer Client Code Team.
