Export to PDF from Notes (and not just from Symphony)

: Notes Client / Core/Frameworks (Incl. sidebar, rich text editor)
: pfd, export
Knud Højslet3343 - 21 2007 / (13)
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).

New view export/import formats (*.XLS)

: Notes Client / Core/Frameworks (Incl. sidebar, rich text editor)
: export, view
Hynek Kobelka8100 - 02 2007 / (10)
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:  
  • Why not also to *.ODF and *.PDF and *.HTML ?
  • Automatically add the proper extension to the file. (The users don't know ...

Make a STOP button

: Notes Client / Core/Frameworks (Incl. sidebar, rich text editor)
: client, ctrl+break, interface
Nathan T. Freeman2621 - 19 2007 / (23)
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 ...

Better multithreading support in the client

: Notes Client / Core/Frameworks (Incl. sidebar, rich text editor)
: threading, attachments
Carl Tyler5446 - 13 2007 / (4)
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 ...

Propose Firefox as an alternative embedded browser on Windows

: Notes Client / Core/Frameworks (Incl. sidebar, rich text editor)
: internet, browser, embedded
Michel Poleur3846 - 14 2008 / (8)
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.

Allow embedded images to be saved to your computer.

: Notes Client / Core/Frameworks (Incl. sidebar, rich text editor)
: image, files, save
Alan Lepofsky8305 - 31 2007 / (6)
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.
136

Allow URL links to be clicked in edit mode

: Notes Client / Core/Frameworks (Incl. sidebar, rich text editor)
: link, linking, url
Alan Lepofsky8305 - 31 2007 / (8)
Currently links can only be clicked on when a document is in read mode.

In case of client crash - zap the need to use zappers!

: Notes Client / Core/Frameworks (Incl. sidebar, rich text editor)
: automatically, kill, notes, tasks
Robert Ibsen Voith3989 - 20 2008 / (24)
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 ...

Ability to remove old server names from the open database dialog

: Notes Client / Core/Frameworks (Incl. sidebar, rich text editor)
: workspace
David Hablewitz14352 - 24 2009 / (0)
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 ...

When editting tables with zero width borders, show grey-dashed lines.

: Notes Client / Core/Frameworks (Incl. sidebar, rich text editor)
: tables
Alan Lepofsky8305 - 13 2007 / (2)
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.
75

Display frequently used/favorite fonts at the TOP of the font selection list

: Notes Client / Core/Frameworks (Incl. sidebar, rich text editor)
: fonts
Roland Reddekop4308 - 13 2009 / (5)
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 ...

Easier to create links for end-users (previously known as "Hotspot Resource Links" ...)

: Notes Client / Core/Frameworks (Incl. sidebar, rich text editor)
: hotspot, linking, link
Robert Ibsen Voith3989 - 28 2008 / (8)
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 ...

I want a toolbar icon for font colour selection.

: Notes Client / Core/Frameworks (Incl. sidebar, rich text editor)
: toolbar
Alan Lepofsky8305 - 31 2007 / (2)

"Smarter" opening of doclinks and database links

: Notes Client / Core/Frameworks (Incl. sidebar, rich text editor)
: doclink, navigation, wan
Peter Moline1403 - 02 2007 / (4)
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 ...
64

Allow drag and drop resizing of table column widths

: Notes Client / Core/Frameworks (Incl. sidebar, rich text editor)
: table
Alan Lepofsky8305 - 02 2007 / (1)
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.
63

Attachments: rename 'View' to 'Preview'

: Notes Client / Core/Frameworks (Incl. sidebar, rich text editor)
: attachment, preview
Theo Heselmans6404 - 01 2008 / (1)
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.

Bring back Ctrl+tab in Notes 8

: Notes Client / Core/Frameworks (Incl. sidebar, rich text editor)
: ctrl+tab, navigation, client
Rob Porter669 - 11 2009 / (9)
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 ...

Keyboard short cut for pasting plain text

: Notes Client / Core/Frameworks (Incl. sidebar, rich text editor)
: shortcut, past
Daniel Nashed1117 - 22 2008 / (7)
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.
 
...
57

Add "File - Save as PDF" option

: Notes Client / Core/Frameworks (Incl. sidebar, rich text editor)
: save as, pdf
Craig Wiseman21417 - 25 2011 / (6)
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.
56

Client Shutdown should be Client Shutdown

: Notes Client / Core/Frameworks (Incl. sidebar, rich text editor)
: client, 8.5.1, exit
Michael Falstrup861 - 19 2009 / (3)
...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:
