Quite a disappointment to see, that the new feature "Export to PDF" is only available from the productivity editors and not from notes-core (document and viewlevel).
Let us export and import to MS-Excel (*.xls) format.
(Many people don't know what a "Tabular-Text" or „Comma-Separated-File“ is.)
And while you are at it:
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 ...
Lotus Notes is still a terrible threaded client form the Users point of view. When I attach a file I should still be to do other tasks in the Notes client. When attaching a files I should be shown a progress indicator, do I have to wait 1 hour or ...
Internet Explorer is the embedded browser for the Windows platform. Firefox is the embedded browser for Linux platform (don't known about MacOS).
Firefox should also be an (the ?) embedded browser for the Windows platform.
Today, if someone sends me an email (or posts a document in a database) that contains an image (not an attachment) I can not save that image to my computer.
Currently links can only be clicked on when a document is in read mode.
Not often, but sometimes, the Notes client crash! When this happen often some Notes-related tasks like ntaskldr.exe doesn't crash with it. When you try to restart the Notes client, the existance of these tasks in memory hinder a successful restart. So, for ages there has been tools like ZapNotes around to ...
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 ...
I often use tables to format content in emails/documents. I don't always apply borders to these, so when the width is zero, I'd love to see something like grey-dashed lines when in edit mode.
Why must we search through 168 irrelevant, ugly fonts to find the 4 that we use all the time! The Notes rich text editor needs to grow up and take a lesson from popular Word processors and either remember what fonts we use regularly or at least enable a user ...
Today we can create a so-called Hotspot Resource Link. Every time I have to tell end-users about how they can create an URL-link in Notes richtext, I feel that they silently nod and think "jezz, that wasn't easy ...".
I therefore wish that we could have some additional dialog ...
How many users in your organisation have got bookmarks or database icons that point to geographically "distant" servers, instead of a local office server? If your organisation has a WAN, then the answer is likely to be plenty, I reckon.
I would like to see the Notes client be ...
Instead of adjusting the column width via the ruler or the properties box, I'd like to be able to resize columns by directly dragging the column borders.
Some of my users have a hard time to understand the options they get when double-clicking (or right-clicking) an attachment. Particularly the 'View' option. So I suggest renaming this to 'Preview'.
Apple uses this terminology also for previewing files with built-in software vs. actual editors.
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 ...
Most of the times I would like to paste text unformatted with the Past Special/Plain Text. But this option seems not to have a short cut.
In 80% of the cases I am using this option and it would save me going to the menu all the times.
Please add an option: File: Save as PDF to the default menu options.
The underlying capability is already there (built into eclipse)... it just needs to be surfaced. This should act just like the Print dialog and let you choose document or view, etc.
...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:...
