iNotes, IE11 and copy and paste images from the clipboard. How to enable it.

The other day I was lamenting the inability of Internet Explorer in respect to being able to copy and paste an image from the clipboard into an iNotes email body. After all both Firefox and Chrome have been able to do this for a while.

Off I toodle to the web and I find this IBM document which indicates IBM may add it once IE supports it:

The ability to paste images from the clipboard works in both Firefox and Chrome in iNotes 9.0 Social Edition and Smart Cloud Notes Web. Safari 6 and IE 10 do not yet support this, but we are hoping they too will offer the needed browser APIs to do this in the future.


Huh. "I'm pretty sure IE11 now supports this", out intrepid hero says to himself (that's me for those not following along). Off I wibbly wobbly search again. Lo and behold, based on this Microsoft post I appear to be correct (and dear reader, if there were any doubt in you mind that I would, indeed be correct, I'm sorely disappointed in you):

With the new DataURI encoding capability in IE11, Web sites can automatically support pasting images from the clipboard, without requiring additional Javascript.


OK, ammo in hand. Time for the dreaded PMR.....basically along the lines of "IBM have these links that say this....what are you going to do it?".

After a back and forth support finally understand my question. And shocker. it was added in 9.0.1 FP5. "Really?" our intrepid hero asks (again, me for those not following along). But it's disabled by default (FFS IBM, really?). I was also sent a link to the 9.0.1 FP5 IBM document (are they not technotes anymore????) that has this titbit in it:

9.0.1 Fix Pack 5 adds support for IE Standards Mode for iNotes. An optional Forms9s.nsf for IE 11 Standard mode has been added in 9.0.1 FP5. 9.0.1 FP5 installs a secondary iNotes client file on the Domino server named Forms9s.nsf. This file is an optional solution to "Quirks Mode". Quirks mode was a run time option first introduced in IE 6 to provide backward compatibility for programs such as iNotes but can cause some limitations running in newer versions of IE such as IE11. Forms9s.nsf removes quirks mode and runs in Standard mode. This is off by default and can be enabled via setting these in the Domino server notes.ini
iNotes_WA_DefaultFormsFile=iNotes/Forms9s.nsf
iNotes_WA_FormsFiles=iNotes/Forms9s.nsf


Well, OK, but that doesn't say it will do what I want but support insist it will have the desired effect. Sure enough, I add them to the server, restart HTTP and (blue sky, angels singing) I can now paste images from the clipboard directly into iNotes when using IE.

Thanks to Andrea from support for help on this, but why on earth isn't this documented anywhere? "Standards mode" in no way translates to "copy and paste an image from the clipboard into IE". And the original IBM document I found (the first link in the post) was not updated to indicate this. This needs to be added to DCT (if DCT is still a thing?).

Quickr Fix for Chrome 60+
Fri, Aug 25th 2017 8:53p   Darren Duke
Yeah, Quickr right? Long time since I've posted about Quickr. Still a great (if somewhat complicated and unsupported) product, Still being used by me and several clients despite IBM having several products claiming to replace it.. Despite IBM ceasing support many moons ago it chugged along very nicely so long as a reverse proxy is in front of it to allow TLS 1.2 and SHA2. Except Chrome 60 broke it. Google (and Safari before it) changed the way XHR works and basically buggered Quickr in the pro

Renewing LetsEncrypt SSL certificates automatically - redux
Wed, Aug 2nd 2017 10:56a   Darren Duke
After almost a year of using Let's Encrypt to secure this very site, I'm still running into issues automatically renewing the certificates every 90 days. In my last post about this I'd documented the procedure I was using but was unable to ever get it to work successfully via cron (it was fine manually). I've now switched to a different auto-renew method....Enter: certbot This seems much simpler, tidier solution. The only snag for me was it required Python 2.7 to be installed. I sent a

Domino NIFNSF update - you probably don’t want to enable it
Fri, Mar 31st 2017 2:33p   Darren Duke
In my last post about NIFNSF, Christian Hensler left this comment: I couldn't find anything on the internet, so off I went to the Design Partner forum. Now this is a NDA'd so I'm maybe skirting the rules here, but there is indeed an IBM reproduced issue with performance with NIFNSF. So this AM I did some testing and I was able to reproduce the issue. Base on my testing, on average, the current NIFNSF implementation is twice as slow as non-NIFNSF databases. So you many not want to impl

Moving Domino NIF indexes out of the NSF
Wed, Mar 29th 2017 4:16p   Darren Duke
New in Fix Pack Feature Pack 8 is the ability to move the view index files out of the NSF. NIF is the technical term for these index files and end with the file suffix of NDX. Doing this has several advantages including: Make the NSF smaller, so better backup times Help get more out of the 64GB limit....if 6GB of your NSF is NIF index, that's a logt of space Move NIF's to better performing storage, for example SSD's Allows concurrent access to to databases and views, so theoretically better

A while back I blogged that I switched the SSL on this blog to Let's Encypt, the free SSL provider. I even linked to the Crontab post I used to renew the SSL certificate (they are only good for 90 days, so need to be renewed regularly). Except mine would not renew. Hum.... I eventually got around to looking at this before the certificate ran out on Dec 20th and it turns out I needed to do a few more steps. If you manually run the renew.sh on the server without these additional steps thi
