Unread Marks in Lotus Notes

To control unread marks when using the preview window:

  • File
  • Preferences
  • Basic Notes client configuration
  • Additional Options
  • Select/Deselect “Mark document read when opened in the preview pane”

Or, with a document selected in a view:

  • Press the “Insert” key on the keyboard (Linux/Windows)

A safer car.

The only perk from being a couch for new hires at my company is that I get to hand over the .id files to the noobs. This week this guy after two days of using #LotusNotes made a comment - “I’m not saying that the product doesn’t work, it does, it does it’s thing, but it makes no sense how it does it. If it was a car, it’d be the only car in the market for which you’d have to shift gears by shaking the seat with your ass.” - I laughed until I cried, back then, but then someone nearby said: “That way you wouldn’t have to take your hands off the wheel.” It stopped being funny, because now I expect that “feature” to come up in future cars.

Wanna accept a meeting on webmail Lite Mode? Think again. Open it up in full mode, if it works in your browser, of course.

I’m currently unable to even force quit Lotus Notes. Time to restart.

On webmail, why isn’t send the left-most option (to mimic the desktop version)? That’s just poor UX. Also, WTF does “Send & File” mean?

Pro Tip: Mark as Unread Shortcut

If you’re sick of Lotus Notes never marking messages as unread (unless you double-click them) when using the preview window just use the “mark as unread” shortcut - cmnd-shift-u on Mac.

After I send a message I don’t want to be scrolled to the top of my inbox if I sort my inbox in descending order by date. Going to the top means I look at the oldest email in my inbox when all of my new stuff is at the bottom.

Copy and Paste

If I’m selecting something within the preview window I want the window to scroll with me if the content extends beyond the viewable window. Just like EVERY OTHER PROGRAM EVER.
