I've used the keyboard shortcuts for "Create Mail Message" and "Create Mail Reply" for years, but since upgrading to the Notes 8.0 BETA I didn't have them. They simply were gone from the menus.
I knew these were a function of a check box on the property settings of the forms in the mail file, so I assumed when I checked that design that they'd been accidentally left off by development during the beta. When I upgraded to the Notes 8.0 client, however, they didn't come back.
I checked the properties box on the forms in my design, and they were set to the right template, there were signed by Lotus Development, and they were not set to prevent design refresh. I tried design replace, I tried "convert", and none of these things brought them back.
I finally, today, thought to check the actual template. Strangely, in the template they were properly set to show up in the menus. Only my copy of the mail file wasn't right. I didn't want to have a modified mail database, because I want the updates when they come out. To get around the problem, I ended up having to replace the design of my mail template with a "Blank" database template -- removing all the design elements. Once that was done, I replaced the design again with the mail8.ntf template and all was well.
Of course, then I had to rebuild my $Inbox contents. I found a document that was in the inbox before my "fixing" things, and from it got the value stored in a field called $FolderRef. That field is a note
|$FolderRef Field Value||Text Equivalent||F38D46BF5:E8F08834-N852564B5:00129B2C||38D46BF5E8F08834852564B500129B2C|
T1 := @If(@Text($FolderRef) = "38D46BF5E8F08834852564B500129B2C" ; @True; @False); T2 := @If( (DeliveredDate = "" & PostedDate != "" & !(@IsMember("S"; ExcludeFromView))) ; @False ; @True); T3 := @If(@Name([CN] ; @If(Principal = ""; From; Principal)) = "Andrew Pollack" ; @False ; @True); T4 := @If( ( @IsNotMember("A"; ExcludeFromView) & IsMailStationery != 1 & Form != "Group" & Form != "Person") ; @True ; @False); SELECT ( (T1 = @True) & (T2 = @True) & (T3 = @True) & (T4 = @True) )
Please wait while your document is saved.
file, it will create a new inbox and populate it with an 'unfoldered'
items...quite useful. At least it worked that way right up to R7. Not sure
