I'm really tired of the 1980's design of the workspace. It has served Notes users well for over 20 years, but the time has come for a major and I mean MAJOR overhaul. I look at the slick interfaces for iPhones, Blackberry, even Windows and wonder why my Notes workspace ...
The only way that I know off to re-arrange tabs is to create a new tab move all databases from the old one to the new one and then delete the old tab. If you have many databases on that tab , it is quite time consuming.
As servers come and go, the list of server names cannot be updated to eliminate servers that no longer exist. They remain forever until a new desktop8.ndk is created. This is especially irritating for administrators and developers who work with test servers or servers from other domains. Touch it once ...
after reading this post, I would more options to get my workspace organized:
- resizing icon size
- adding bg colors to my db icons
- mouse over effect, to give Notes some improved UI improvement (lighten up bg? thumbnail 'lightbox' effect of default db launch option?
- option to ...
I'd like to be able to arrange my database icons by name, etc. on my workspace pages. Like I can on my desktop.
I am tired of a grey background, or blue or whatever color my system uses that I can choose.
I want to have bmps, jpgs, animated ones even would be cool.
The younger generation wants easily customizable solutions.
Would it be so hard to just have a preference to change ...
Why isn't the workspace configurable so if our company wants its logo on it we can do it?
It should be as simple as swapping a file, like it was in earlier versions.
It would be nice when there was a function that allows you to remove all workspace icons that refer to a selected server on the current workspace page are removed by a single function.
As a developer I always work on local replica's. This implies that there are workspace ...
I'd like to have a function which would allow me to "clean" my workspace from invalid chicklets and bookmarks.
It should do the following:
I still use the old workspace to access my databases but I find we don't have enough visibility and control over it. Ideally I'd like to open the desktop.dsk and be able to see 'Icons by server', 'by page', 'by title', 'by date open', 'by replica id', 'by filename' ... ...
There are times when my client locks up or worse, crashes. I've had multiple tabs open (mail, calendar, documents, etc). These were things that needed my attention and that got interupted when the client locked up. There should be a way to to save the tabs, as we do in ...
Now that we moved away from Databases to Applications as a concept ;) Why use the stack feature (currently used to keep replicas together) to keep related applications together.
You know the scenario, you have a front-end database that the user clicks on, but you still separate databases for ...
organising workspaces pages are a crime nowadays.
why not have the option to set a workspace page as a default workspace page to be opened at startup?
this would avoid that I have to move my favourite databases at a moment to the first workspace page
I have no idea where the Edit\Undo function all applies on, but for me this function may be extended to a lot more. For example the deletion of database icons, are workspace tabs/pages.
Especially with Notes 8 it seems very easy/sensitive to delete a set of database icons from ...
I would really like that the workspace (Yes i still use it and love it) is more manageable. For instance:
- Every new db link should be placed in a special tab in the workspace so you could easier delete the one's you don't want
- Cleanup agent (is also ...
if you open a database that is new to your workspace the database icon is added to the workspace tab of the currently opened database.
I would prefer that you can point to a dedicated tab in the preference where by default the icons will be placed under.
When dragging a Db icon from one Worspace tab to another, the user should be able to drop the icon in a specific place on the page.
Currently, When database icons are dragged from one workspace tab to another, the destination workspace page is not displayed. It just drops ...
I am probably not the only one who still uses the workspace. There are times when I have more icons on a workspace tab than I room for on my screen and I need to move them around.
How about a zoom in/out feature, giving more of a virtual ...
Wouldn't it be nice when you could specify in a location what workspace page to use. When you have several ID's and several workspace pages it would be very useful when the related workspace page is immediately shown after login or after swich of location.
