Earlier this month I linked to a review of the usability of the Notes client. Despite agreeing at the time to let it lie, I've specnt some time since compiling a list of my peeves with the Domino designer client. I have to use it for the majority of my working day so even the littlest of things can soon have me banging my desk in fury. I'll start with a small one that is not really as much an annoyance as it is an example of poor consistency within the product.
Consider how you specify the Name and Alias properties of a view.
And how it then appears in the list of views.
Now consider what happens when I enter the Name and Alias for a form.
And how this appears in the list of forms.
Obviously I've been a complete moron and entered the form's Alias in its Comment box. Am I really a moron though? I like to think not. Just somebody who's expecting to be able to follow convention. Whilst this particular example has me tutting more than screaming it's a good example of what will probably become a regular feature here ;o) Feel free to let me know your own niggles...
