IBM Lotus Notes 8.5.2: Upgrading your Icons from 16x16 to 32x32
   

divI've upgraded my client to Notes 8.5.2, sure it took a couple of goes and I ended up having to completely uninstall and reinstall - but I got there./divdivbr //divdivI've since done an upgrade on a different PC (but that one didn't have designer) and I didn't have the same problems - so, maybe it was just a glitch on my PC./divdivbr //divdivSo... What's new in IBM Lotus Notes 8.5.2? Well, if you really want to learn the answer to that question, a href="http://www-01.ibm.com/software/lotus/products/notes/whatsnewinnotes.html#learn1"ask IBM/a. There's something about XPages too I think but the really important bit is ... the icons../divdivbr //divdivno, really.../divdivbr //divdivWe've been waiting ages for this. Let's hope it won't be another 18 years before we get 64x64 icons./divdivbr //divdivSo... the first thing I did in the 8.5.2 designer was upgrade my Smurf. Yep, the database that I've had as my best friend for the last 15 years of my working life has an excessively blue smurf as its icon.

IBM Notes: 25 Years and Counting...
Thu, Nov 27th 2014 4:25p   Gavin Bollard
Today marks 25 Years of IBM (Lotus) Notes. It's a pretty impressive lifespan for a product. Sure, Windows has been going 29 years and there are many older systems out there but few I suspect have retained the incredible levels of compatibility that Notes has. Can you still run Windows 1.0, 2.0, 3.0 or even 95 programs on the latest Windows? Sometimes, but not really. Not without emulation. Notes applications however still run fine on the newer notes platforms.

Using your Operating System Login for IBM Notes can "Poison" your IDs (and how to fix it)
Sun, Aug 10th 2014 5:25p   Gavin Bollard
For years, we've had it easy with Notes. We've had our ID files stored safely on a secure drive and whenever a user moved to a new desktop, we could simply copy their original ID over to their new machine and do most of the setup without them. All that changed somewhere between Windows 7, Notes 9 and getting Notes to use the Operating System login. It's a good change, don't get me wrong and it certainly protects the users privacy and makes things more secure. Unfortunately it also renders a [read] Keywords: domino ibm notes notes client desktop password security

Reusing Text in Word 2010 via Bookmarks - Part 2 Getting your formatting right
Sun, Jun 22nd 2014 7:25p   Gavin Bollard
In my last post on reusing text via bookmarks in Word, I mentioned that there was a problem with the reused text retaining formatting. Sure, you can reformat the text to look how you want but when you update it, then new text takes on characteristics of the old. You end up with text that looks like this.... There's an easy (but not obvious) way to fix this; Getting into Reveal Codes Mode on Field So, first we need to know exactly what makes our fields tick. So, click on one of your fiel [read] Keywords:

How to Reuse Text via Bookmarks in Word 2010 (Update once and have it auto-update throughout the document)
Wed, Jun 18th 2014 9:45p   Gavin Bollard
I guess this is a bit of an oldie but I was surprised how many people didn't know about it. Why would you do this? If you find yourself opening old documents and then doing a search and replace to change a name, a date or a version number, then this is the tip for you. It allows you to write your key information down once and then have it auto-update. If you do a lot of contracts or quotes - or basically any kind of document based on a template, then you'll find this very handy. Getting S [read] Keywords: microsoft office

How to do Bullets and Numbering in IBM Notes
Tue, Feb 4th 2014 9:42p   Gavin Bollard
I forgot the F8 shortcut key today and I looked it up via google. On the way I found a post about colouring text white to hide bullets in notes. Crazy. In any case, I wrote these instructions for my people and thought it was worth sharing on the blog; How to Do Bullets and Numbering in IBM Notes There are lots of cool things you can do with bullets in IBM Notes.

Getting Notes 9 to show Email Addresses as you type
Tue, Jun 11th 2013 10:05p   Gavin Bollard
Until recently, in fact until Notes 9, our Notes clients used to show email addresses as we typed them in but suddenly with IBM Notes 9, it started showing their Job Titles. We got a lot of complaints about this and the fix wasn't entirely obvious (to me at least), so that's why I'm documenting it here. As you can see, the problem wouldn't be so bad if all of our contacts came from the same company - but they don't. Our contacts come from lots of different companies. So, how do we change [read] Keywords: ibm notes notes client notesmail email

How to Get your Personal Address Book Data Synching with IBM Notes Traveler and the iPhone/Android

I'm surprised that nobody seems to know how to do this - well, according to my research on the web anyway. So here it is, the instructions for getting your IBM Notes (we don't use the words Lotus Notes anymore) personal address book Synched with your Apple iPhone (and presumably Android too).

How to Figure out When an Extranet User last logged into your Domino Server
Thu, Apr 25th 2013 7:42p   Gavin Bollard
So, you want to do a bit of spring cleaning in your domino address book and apart from people whose email addresses you use all the time, you want to get rid of people who haven't accessed the server in ages. How do you find out when their last access was? I notice there's a lot of paid solutions on the web but it's functionality that is built into domino already. Here's how to use this feature; Start Domino AdministratorOpen the server that people log intoClick on the tab marked People a [read] Keywords: domino email server

Getting into IBM Notes 9
Tue, Apr 2nd 2013 10:05p   Gavin Bollard
I installed the release version of IBM Notes 9 yesterday and I'm happy to say that it works a bit smoother than the beta did. In fact, it's generally quite a nice experience. I've had no crashes so far (unlike my Notes 8 experience where I discovered three different ways to kill the client in less than 3 keystrokes on the first day). The new blue icon is nice and the black panel on the mail looks slick too. As usual, all of our applications work (notes compatibility is generally pretty g [read] Keywords: ibm lotus notes notes client sametime symphony application applications db2 google microsoft office openoffice
