There is another idea for Full DXL Round-trip, but it is for both design and data. This idea hopes to take smaller bites of the elephant that is DXL support. Lotus should begin by making design elements 100% round-trippable in the next version of Notes. This would open many doors ...
Let us navigate the folder hierarchy when selecting a template. Let us browse outside the data directory. At a very minimum, even without a hiearcichal view, let us display titles, template names, filenames and dates, and sort on any of them! Let us filter by type (NTF, master template, and ...
Lots of people have posted things about adding more colors or size to the icons. Good, but incomplete.
Icons - including database, workspace page, toolbar, and bookmarks -- should allow you to specify a standard windows (supported by linux and mac also after a fashion) icon (.ico) files. These ...
It would be great if it was possible to copy attributes of a selected element in Designer and "paint" it onto other elements, much the way Format Painter does in Office products.
I'm thinking selecting a field and grabbing the "Computed for Display" property and being able to "paint" ...

Allow design refresh or replace in the admin client. Either by allowing us to add to the administrator smart icons so that we can add the @Command([DesignRefresh]) or @Command([DesignReplace])
or allow us to right click and choose Design\Replace and Refresh.
We can see ...
Using Private Views in Lotus Notes has always been a bit of a double edge sword.
They do have their obvious benefits and can work fantastically. Unfortunately they have their limitations, which on paper would be quite easily resolved with a little work.
The problem ...
This is response to Ben Langhinrichics' request for book proposals.
This book discusses real world scenarios for XPage application. It provides examples & tips on how to build attractive interfaces for your Domino applications using IBM Lotus User Interface.
If you happen to have questions when to ...
A lot of websites have a menubar/actionbar below the banner/logo/title. This gives the user a better experience, and looks nicer too. Notes currently has the actionbar always at the top.
I propose to have a setting in the actionbar to define/compute an optional subform to put above the actionbar.
By default every user sees the same design of the Domino directory, including all configuration data and the ugly person documents. There's simply too much information for the end user. He doesn't need to see everybody's home server, public key data or password policy. Some of potentially essential infos are ...
I would like to be able to drag and drop documents from one Notes database into another, or from one tab to another.
Think for minute how useful this could be. You could embed a folder from one database into an outline in another database (eg. the mail template), ...
To avoid user errors, give form designers control what types of addressbook entries will be selectable for a given Names/Readers/Authors field. E.g. to define that for a SendTo field should appear only entries which are mailable; in a field which controls document access should appear only entries which can control ...
When a design refresh initiated via the Designer client fails one of the few ways to see 'what' and 'where' things went wrong is the statusbar.
Not really a helpful way of reporting and a bad start to start your research in the cause.
Note: the attached file does ...
When refreshing the design of a notes database it always defaults to Server Local. I would like it to default to my test server to save a little time.
It would be nice if this box defaulted to either the last used server or you could set an ini ...
When the @ThisField and @ThisValue functions were announced at Lotusphere I chatted with Damien about the need for an @ThisFieldHelp function and he saw the need for it. Unfortunately he left Lotus.
When using the @This... functions and a field value fails a Validation formula then the only meaningful ...
Dealing with Designtemplates I would like to be able to sort the databases in the Filetab of the Administrator in column Template, mark all Databases which are based on a specific template (this already works) and then do a right click to refresh the design of these databases with the ...
Oh wouldn't it be wonderfull if we had the design docs for the standard applications like Resource reservations, with all the flows and such. I have tried to modify that database and it is hard with my somewhat limited skills.
So, or I am more limited then I thought, ...
I would like to see an easy way to change the design of the start page (the one displayed while no user has been logged in) and the MyPlaces page in Quickr (Services for Domino). It should work in a similar way as changing the design of a place itself....
In the XPages editor in DDE, I'd like to be able to view design and source in one screen.
And/Or, even better, design on one monitor, source on the other!
I don't think the User Details box on the database properties gives any idea about who made the last design change to the database. Whenever something goes wrong with a database, the first thing that we want to know is who made any design change to the database and when....
Allow document link to design elements (forms, views, agents etc) to be sent to other Notes developers.
If the recipient has Designer then clicking on the link will open the corresponding design element.
.. extends NotesDocument (I suppose). Would allow access to 'prohibit design/refresh' flag, Template inheritence and other options.
I know some of this stuff can be done using tricks, but I think it's worth formalising the class.
in domino desiger tools menu, beside "recompile all" a new action "remove flag prohibit design refresh or replace to modify" will be nice. currently i'm using ytria or teamstudio tools for this, but this funktion is basic and so IBM Lotus should create it.
Right now there is NO way to use an API or exposed program method to write an agent which will check or uncheck the replication advanced options which would prevent design and form updates.
This is useful when doing a slow progressive migration or upgrade from r5 to r7 in ...
I wish a selection formula could select a main doc an all its responses into a view based on anything in the respones
This would be very useful when building view such as all the threads a user has psoted to or any thread that pertains to a subject.
There's a feature in Outlook I really like: The ability to pin a folder to the top of the nav pane.
It works like this:
1) Right click any Folder or View in any Outlook mailbox.
2) Click "Add to Favorite Folders".
Notes C API does not fit - do not cross platform.
Server task is not suitable for all, such as transfer design to the local databases.
NB. It would be desirable to have an option (bool paramether) that ignores and deactivates "Prohibit design refresh or replace modify" and "Prapagate ...
I'd like an option to change the replication settings on the fly.
I update a template with a minor change - let's say a new column in a view
I refresh the design from the template of the app
I hit replicate, and it has to go through ...
When an admin marks one or multiple person documents in the Domino Administrator client and choses to do a design replace to another mail template, ask him whether to change the user's mail file design or the address book's.
I want to be able to include the same subform on a form multiple times.
For exampe if I were making a billing system it would require several addresses; order address, billing address, shipping address. Then I could build one subform; address. Then I could include it three times, ...
[have the option to] create a development environment that is identical to the production environment.
The development environment has the same databases (same name and replicaid) as the production environment.
When a developer logs in to the client or designer, he or she can choose which environment to log in ...
I would like to have the ability to mark a database so that its design is not refreshed automatically by the Design task running on the server. When set I can only update the design via a manual refresh/replace.
This would be very useful in situations in which a ...
