Workspace all grey - no icons - workaround
If you are running Notes 12.0.2 or higher you will for sure at some point run into an error were the workspace tabs fills out the entire workspace and you can not access you workspace database icons no more.
There is nothing you can do in the UI to fix it.
The problem is due to a new setting in the notes.ini and and is easy fixable, if you know what to fix
You need to reset a new setting in 12.0.2 to default and it works again after a Notes restart.
Or just create a button with the LS code and send it to the user.
Sub Click(Source As Button)
Dim session As New NotesSession
Call session.SetEnvironmentVar( "Workspace_Navigator_Width", "170",True )
Just saw another variant where workspace fills all area and no tabs. Fortunately same fix :-)

HCL Verse contacts integration on Samsung phones not working - a quick workaround
There has been a very annoying bug in HCL Verse on Samsung for a long time.
The integration from HCL Verse contacts to other apps on the phone breaks.
This meant that in recent calls, SMS etc only a phone number would be shown, and not the name of the contact.
A reinstall of HCL Verse would normally fix this for a while and then it would break again.
HCL blames Samsung for the issue, and the issue does not seem to get fixed.
I have found a quick workaround to fix the issue when it arises.
Go to Application settings in HCL Verse and then to the "People" section.
Unclick "Export Verse Contacts", and enable it again.
This will get Contacts integration working again (...until it breaks again)

HCL Domino, view indexer stuck with very high CPU usage
I have a customer who has a Domino server running with very high CPU usage, and it should not, since it is not a very busy server.
It is the indexer which gets stuck with very high CPU usage
I have a support case with HCL.
It seems that it is the dynamic view indexing added to the recent releases of Domino which is the reason behind this.
This feature polls the database for data for getting information on which views are frequently updated.
Disabling the feature brings back the CPU usage to normal again.
You can do this by setting NIF_VIEW_USAGE_ENABLED=0 in notes.ini, if you have enabled the feature

HCL Notes 12.0.2 - New Signature feature seems broken
To test the new HCL Notes 12.0.2 "Signature" feature I created a simple form with a Rich Text Lite field for testing out the feature.
I have have removed all options,but the signature feature for the field.
This what the RT field looks like in edit mode before entering data
Clicking on the button shows a dialog box for entering a signature
This is what I entered in the signature dialog box
This is what it looks like after clicking on the OK button
(it looks the same in read mode)
Only a part of the image seem to be saved in the field.
(UPDATE: Apparently the issue is in 64 bit version only)

HCL Notes Client - 64 bit, I am really looking forward to it
I am really looking forward to the release of the 64 bit HCL Notes Clients later this year.
I tested the 64 bit clients (Notes, Admin and Designer) earlier this year and it was a good experience despite it being a beta version.
It seemed faster than the normal 32- bit version and just as stable.
Normally I can only shutdown my 32 - bit Notes, Admin and Designer correctly 50% of the time,
The other 50% it will crash doing shutdown and hang. The hanging Notes tasks would then have to be killed in task manager.
I did not experience that at all with the 64-bit version.
Unfortunately I had to uninstall due to a fatal bug in the designer, but this is to be expected in a beta version.
