Make a STOP button next to the Open button that does exactly what Ctrl+Break does. Right now, that's just the super-secret keystroke for power users only.
UPDATE: Just to clarify, there IS a Stop button in the toolbar today. But it's not useful, because when your client is in ...
[Idea comes live from a Paul Mooney and Susan Bulloch session a Lotusphere]
The administrator can restrict the size of attachments that can be sent using the server. The openNTF mail experience template enforces that limit at the client. It would be a good if the IBM mail template ...
In earlier versions of Notes you could use ctrl+tab to switch between the tabs you have open in the client (i.e. the databases and documents currently open in the ui). This functionality is missing from the Eclipse based Notes 8 client.
As far as I understand ctrl+tab is a ...
Sometimes I want only some paragraphs of text to be printed, and not the whole document. If the documents are large, I almost need a whole tree just to have those 2 paragraphs on paper.
If I want some text of a memo next to me (f.e. if I'm solving ...
I often have to forward several emails at once. When doing so, the forward flag only gets added to the first email. It would be helpful to know that each was forwarded especially when going back through old emails or archives.
...and not have tasks running in the background like notes2.exe, which often result in unsuccessfull client restarts og db fixup if computer is restarted before tasks has closed down grazefully.
An idea is to have a prompt with a process bar/circle indicating the Notes Client is closing, like:...
Checkbox (and radio button) fields should have user-definable limits and the text of each item in the list should wrap within the confines of those limits.
It royally sucks to have a nicely formatted table go horribly wrong when a checkbox option gets too long and throws off your ...
I want to be able to select some or all of the text in a view row and copy it to the clipboard, then paste it somewhere as text.
Right now, click-and-drag grabs the entire view entry for dragging to a folder. Obviously, I don't want to lose that ...
It would be nice to not need 5 or more location documents for all my emails.
While I can have one inbox, I can not have multiple outgoing email names/addresses from that one box, thus 5 different location docs/dbs, etc.
I can make personal stationery, but not personal email addresses?
RAM and network are big dependencies, but application speed is the single most important feature of any software application. If IBM could make Lotus Notes the fastest email client on the planet they would surely grab back a huge chunk of market share. This is as basic as it gets.... we ...
If you use different IDs for your admin und "normal" work, it would be great if you could start two clients, one with the admin, one with the normal ID.
This was (and is) possible with the basic client via starting "nlnotes.exe =Path/To/notes.ini". I want that also ...
I want it to be possible to select all text in properties boxes, like the database path, servername etc.
The 8.x Standard client should have a standard and easy way to troubleshoot crashes/problems. Now, when the Expeditor-part of the Standard client crashes it gives a pug-ugly and more importantly USELESS and huge error box (like the attached image). Troubleshooting the cause is very painful (like this)! When the ...
In Notes 6.5, 7, and Notes 8 Basic clients, you can set policies that determines users' IM settings like so (see screen shots).
This made set up and config easy for users.
AFAIK,, these policies don't apply to Notes 8 Standard users. ...
Based on some recent experience the Notes client does a very poor job of rendering HTML mail. As far as I can tell the problem relates to the clients interpretation of inline css.
Assuming that an email contains compliant CSS 1.0 instructions and XHTML I'd expect it to render well and currently it ...
The Mac client lacks the ability to flag text within a rich text field as passthru HTML. What's more, when you're editing an existing document that contains passthru HTML (presumably done on a Windows client), even touching the existing passthru is an invitation to a world of hurt.
Based upon the comments of many people doing upgrades to 8.5.1 It seems like opportunity still exists for the install experience to be made a more positive one. Amongst the areas I believe need improving:-
I can create a doc link by drag&dropping an opened document tab into a document's richtext field.
I can create a database link by drag&dropping an opened database tab into a document's richtext field.
However, I cannot create a view link that way. I'm limited to use the options in ...
The side bar in the ND8 client has a nifty Day-At-A-Glance feature. Problem is that when you have multiple appointments/reminders/ToDo items, as you accomplish things and the day progresses, it looks like you still have a full plate.
Create the option to strike-through entries in the panel applet, so ...
I often write eMails in german with english words... (or I write a german or a english email... )
Every time I need to switch between these two dictionaries. I know how to do but many users doesn´t know or it need to much time... A good ...
