Get rid of all those modal dialog boxes.  There are times when it is desirable or necessary, but those are rare.  And Notes 8 makes it worse.  For example, in previous releases clicking on the location then Edit Current would open the location document as another tab.  Now, it opens a dialog box which restricts one from navigating to other documents or views to examine or copy data from them and paste into the location document being edited.  That entire properties dialog box should just open like any other document.
Another example:  An administrator gets an email to create a new user.  He goes to the admin client and clicks on the Register User function.  It opens a modal dialog box that prevents returning to the client to view the email to copy and paste information like the name, so there is less room for error.  At least in previous releases, one could switch back to the Notes client to view the email provided it was the last active window there before opening the Register User function in the Admin client.  Once the dialog is opened, everything else related to Notes is frozen INCLUDING SAMETIME CHATS!  You can't even respond to a chat until you finish creating the new user and close the dialog box.
