In Lotus Notes, when I create an attachment, I click on “My Documents” shortcut, and it should take me to My Documents folder.
BUT Lotus Notes is adding it as an attachment instead.”
Indeed it is.
Fixed in Lotus Notes 6.5.1, with a setting added to the Notes.INI, FIRE PHASERS SHELL_LINKS=1.
SHELL_Links=1 will cause Lotus Notes to treat the shortcut as a link.
Here’s a summary of how Lotus Notes client behave:
|Notes version||Change type||Change|
|7.x / 8.x||fixed by default, changeable via GUI and Notes.ini||NO_SHELL_LINKS=1|
|8.5.x||fixed by default, changeable via GUI and Notes.ini||NO_SHELL_LINKS=1
GUI change is in File / Preferences / Basic Notes Configuration
About FIRE PHASERS: While I was typing this out, I suddenly remembered the FIRE PHASERS Novell login script command. I was thinking it would make a good age test for any of your Novell techs.
