I was just about to tell you. This book shows you how to complete common Lotus Notes® tasks without making you read a lot of tedious details. Once you've learned the basics of a task, you'll be able to learn more about it as you use it. Why would I want to read this book Who knows Maybe you have nothing better to do. Maybe you like to learn new things. Maybe your boss gave you Notes™ and said you'd better learn it fast or you'll be in trouble. Or maybe you just like to have fun. How does the book work The book shows you the steps involved in basic Notes tasks. You follow our mascot, Sherman, as he walks you through each task. The tasks are short and easy to complete. They do not contain a lot of boring details. This is good if you don't like to be bored. If you like to be bored, read a different book about computers. Do you really expect me to follow Sherman Yes. Say hello to Sherman. Sherman will guide you through each task. If you have any questions along the way, feel free to ask Sherman. (But first be sure that your office door is closed so people won't think you're crazy for talking to a shoe in a book.) 1What is Notes anyway People have been asking that question since the beginning of time (or at least since Notes first came onto the market). It has been hard for people to define Notes because you can use it to do so many things. For example, you can: Send and receive electronic mail messages, even from Internet mail accounts. Read about the latest industry news or find information about a particular subject. Track inventory and automatically create new orders when supplies are low. Access the Internet and Internet newsgroups to read and post articles. Customize your Headlines page by adding links to your most frequently used tasks, such as mail, calendar entries, databases, and updates from the Internet (stock quotes, weather, or travel reservations). Use bookmarks to create links to information both on the Internet and in Notes, including databases, views, documents, Web pages, and newsgroups. Plan and track progress on complicated projects. Collaborate on a project with people in different locations. You can work together to plan your work, create reports and databases, and discuss changes you want to make without leaving your office, even if each person is in a different country. 2Automatically route company forms to the people who need to see them and approve them. For example, you can create a purchase order and have Notes route it automatically to your manager, then to the Purchasing department, and then to the supplier. This can all take place without your leaving your office or trying to find your manager (who is probably out having a threemartini lunch anyway). Discuss and share information that is important for doing your job. This can significantly decrease the number of meetings you'll have to attend. (Of course, this means you'll have to catch up on your sleep somewhere else.) Keep track of your schedule and your "To Do" list. Take your computer with you and access Notes information from wherever you are. Do all of this and more. The uses of Notes are limited only by people's imaginations. It truly changes the way people work. That's nice. So, what is Notes See, I told you it's hard to define. Basically, Notes gives you a way to find and share information, to make many tasks easier to accomplish, and to work easily with other people. These people can be at your company or outside your company. They can be in your country or outside your country. They can be anyplace in the world. (So far, we haven't figured out a way to communicate with people on other planets, but stay tuned.) 34Getting the hard part out of the way first: 2 Some important Notes concepts This chapter describes the basic building blocks of Notes. Unlike subsequent chapters, this chapter doesn't tell you how to do anything. It just explains things you should know before using Notes. (Actually, this is probably the most boring chapter in the book, but it's important to read anyway.) Great. So tell me something already. Anxious, aren't you Okay... Notes stores information in databases.  Application   Each database contains information about Name A A WA WA R R D DC C ER ER TI TI FI FI C C A A TE TE          Address "    '    a particular subject such as "Company State                 Policies" or "Product Information." The     Type company name Click here to add clip art Type company address person who creates the database decides Type persons name and position  Type phone number Type fax number the type of information the database will contain. Databases can even contain reports for you to complete, such as attendance reports or expense reports. A database usually contains many documents. Each of these documents is about a particular topic. In a Company Policies database, for example, there may be a topic about parking, one about sick days, and one about donating to charity through the company. Some databases only let you read information, while others let you create documents of your own. You create a document by filling in information on a form the database contains. The form has spaces for you to fill in. These spaces are called fields. Some forms also have buttons for you to click to perform particular actions. Sound easy so far Great. Let me recap this stuff anyway. To add information to a database, you fill in a form and store your completed document in the database. Anyone who has adequate access to the database can read the information you wrote and create additional documents. To read what someone else has written, you just look at the documents in the database. 5 Policies ProceduresSounds easy, but what if there are hundreds of documents Often, a database contains so many documents, it can be difficult to find the information you want. Notes solves this problem by letting you create many different ways to view and store the documents. A view is a way for Notes to display documents in a database. A view often shows documents in a particular order and sometimes shows only a portion of the documents in the database. In a database that a company uses to store employee information, for example, there would be a document about each employee. This database could contain the following views: A view that shows all employees listed in alphabetical order by last name A view that shows all employees by first name A view that shows all employees by the departments they work in A view that shows employees who have parking spaces in the company parking garage A view that shows employees who have been at the company less than a year Notice that the first three views include documents for all employees, but the last two views include only some of the documents. You also can create folders in a database. Folders let you organize documents to make them easier to find. In the Employee Information database, for example, you could create a folder to store the documents you use frequently, such as those from your boss, department members, and friends. When you open the folder, you would see only those documents you placed in the folder. You can place a copy of the same document in more than one folder, just as documents can appear in more than one view. The difference between a folder and a view is that you can place any document you want in a folder, but a view has a formula that determines which documents it displays. You can remove a document from a view by deleting that document, but you also delete it from all views that it may be in. However, you can remove a document from one folder without it being deleted or removed from any other folder. When people create databases, they usually include some folders and views to make the databases easy to use. 6What will I see when I start Notes When you first start Notes, the program displays the default Welcome Page. It looks something like this: Menu SmartIcons Universal navigation buttons Bookmark bar icons Bookmark folders Status bar The Welcome page is customizable so it may look different. The table below describes the items that are labeled in the picture.™ Item Purpose Menu Lets you choose Notes commands. (The commands on the menu sometimes change, depending on what you are doing.) Universal Let you navigate among databases or Web pages, or to go navigation back to where you'eve been. You can also stop certain buttons actions that are in process, refresh the page or view you are looking at, find or search for information, and open a URL. SmartIcons® Let you choose Notes commands by just clicking an icon. (The SmartIcons that Notes displays sometimes change, depending on what you are doing. SmartIcons may not be turned on when you start Notes.) Bookmark bar Let you quickly open the most frequently used components icons in Notes; your mail, calendar, headlines, To Do list, and address book. Bookmark folders Let you store, access, and manage your bookmarks. Status bar Lets you change some settings, open your mail, and see some current information about Notes. 7But it looks different when I open a database When you open a database, Notes might look like this: Window tab Action bar Navigation pane View pane Preview pane The table below describes the items that are labeled in the picture. Item Purpose Action bar Contains buttons you can click to quickly perform some common tasks. The buttons on the action bar sometimes change, depending on what you are doing. Some databases may not have an action bar at all. Window tabs Let you quickly switch from one open window to another. Navigation pane Lets you open different folders and views. View pane Lets you select and open documents. Preview pane Lets you read the document that is highlighted in the view pane without opening the document. Some databases may look different, but how you use the items is the same. So, that's it. If any of that seems hard to understand, don't worry about it. As you use the product, things will become clearer. And you can always look back here for a refresher. 8Hold on tight...here we go 3 Getting started with Notes Like most computer programs, getting started with Notes can be an exhilarating experience — or a daunting one. There are all those new icons staring you in the face, menu commands beckoning to you, and strange words and drawings scattered around the screen. Luckily, the pictures and words in Notes are often selfexplanatory. And if you've used other Lotus programs, you're already familiar with many of them. This chapter gets you started using Notes but doesn't have you do very much — at least not yet. It shows you the basics, like how to start the program and use a few of the features. Starting Notes is pretty simple, but I tell you how to do it anyway. I also tell you a couple of ways to get Help while you're using Notes. In addition, I tell you what to do if you make a mistake while using Notes. (This feature is primarily for other people, not for you.) Then I tell you how to use those icons you will see near the top of the Notes screen. Finally, I explain how to stop Notes. (I could've waited until the end of the book to tell you how to stop Notes, but if you decided to stop reading the book before the end, you'd have to leave Notes running forever.) To recap, This chapter tells you how to do the following: Start Notes Launch Notes Help while working in the program Locate a Help topic on your own Undo your mistakes Use SmartIcons to accomplish tasks faster Stop Notes 9Starting Notes How will this help me For this topic, that seems like a silly question, doesn't it But that's the format we're using in this book, so here goes: starting Notes lets you use all of its wonderful features — all those things I convinced you were terrific in the first chapter. (Gee, I hope that clears things up for you.) As you may have noticed, sometimes what appears in the section "How will this help me" will be pretty obvious. But sometimes, it will be pretty illuminating, maybe even important. So, it's a good idea to browse through the section for each task, just to be sure you don't miss anything. The good thing is that the section is always short. 10Find Lotus Notes on the 1 Start menu and click it. When Notes starts, you 2 see the default Notes Welcome page. Initially, this includes links for: reading and creating mail, viewing your calendar and creating new appointments, viewing your To Do list and creating To Do items, and viewing your contacts and creating new contacts. 11Getting help: Launch Notes Help while working in the program How will this help me While you're working with Notes, you may occasionally need assistance. You can use the Notes Help system to explain things to you and show you what to do. There are two ways to find information in Notes Help: you can have Notes open directly to a topic, or you can search for the topic yourself. If you don't know a lot about Notes, it is probably better to have Notes open a topic. That's what this procedures discusses. The next procedure shows you how to find a Help topic yourself. 12Press F1, or choose Help and then choose 1 Context Help from the Notes menu. Notes displays a Help topic. Click on any of the 2 blue underlined text to display other topics you want to read. YOU SHOULD KNOW You can click the Index or Search task button to find topics by keywords or phrases. If there are topics 3 displayed in the view pane, you can click the topic you want to read. Notes displays that topic to the right of the view. If there is a triangle icon beside the topic, click on the triangle to read the document and expand the view to see additional topics. 13When you want to close Help, choose File 4 and then choose Close from the Notes menu, or press ESC. 14Getting help: Locating a Help topic on your own How will this help me When you locate a Help topic on your own, you get to choose from all the Help topics that come with Notes. This may lead you to information you might not know was there otherwise. 15Choose Help and then choose Help Topics from 1 the Notes menu. Notes displays the contents of Help. Click the topic in the 2 Table of Contents that you want to read. Notes displays that topic to the right of the Table of Contents. If there is a triangle icon beside the topic, click on the triangle to read the document and expand the list to see additional topics. Click on any of the 3 blue underlined text to display other topics you want to read. YOU SHOULD KNOW When you click a triangle icon, the list expands to show additional topics. When you click the triangle icon again, the list collapses and the topics will no longer be visible. 16When you want to close Help, choose 4 File and then choose Close from the Notes menu, or press ESC. YOU SHOULD KNOW You can click the Index or Search buttons to find the topic you want. 17 Undoing mistakes How will this help me Don't you wish there was a way to undo some of the things you do We all make mistakes. (At least, everyone that I know does.) Well, Notes can't help you with the mistakes you make in your life, but it can help you with mistakes you make in Notes itself. For most things you do in Notes, you can tell Notes to undo them. But you have to tell Notes before you do anything else. Notes only undoes the last thing you did. 18Make a mistake or do 1 something else you want to undo. (You really don't have to do this on purpose. But when you do make a mistake, keep this procedure in mind.) Choose Edit and then choose Undo from the 2 Notes menu. (Notice that the Undo command in this picture actually says "Undo Typing" because the last thing I did was type some text.) YOU SHOULD KNOW The wording of the Undo command changes to tell you what action Notes will undo. Notice what Undo did. 3 Breathe a sigh of relief. YOU SHOULD KNOW If Notes can't undo your last action, the Undo command will be gray. 19Using SmartIcons to accomplish tasks faster How will this help me SmartIcons are one of the shortcuts in Notes that will save you time and a lot of mouse clicks. You can use SmartIcons to perform multiple actions with a single mouse click. For example, SmartIcons can execute menu commands that might otherwise require several mouse clicks. Notes displays the SmartIcons at the top of the workspace, although you can move them. The SmartIcons that Notes displays change, depending on what you're doing, so you always have access to the SmartIcons you need. 20To turn on SmartIcons 1 if they are not displayed, choose File, then choose Preferences, and then choose SmartIcons. In the Show section 2 (far right of the dialog box), click Icon Bar, Context Icons, and Descriptions so all three options have a check beside them. 21Click the OK button. 3 To find out what one 4 of these icons does, hold the mouse pointer over it. Notes displays a balloon that tells what the icon does. After finding the icon 5 you want to use, click it. Notes performs the action you want. 22Stopping Notes How will this help me This is one of those topics for which this section probably isn't necessary. But I always try to think of something that makes sense in this spot. For example, you might want to stop Notes if you are done for the day. In addition, you should stop Notes prior to turning off your computer. 23If you've made changes you want to save 1 in any open documents, close and save those documents. (When you close a document you've changed, Notes asks if you want to save it.) Choose File and then choose Exit 2 Notes from the Notes menu. 24Working with bookmarks 4 Bookmarks are used in Notes to open databases, documents, views, or Web pages. Once you bookmark a location, it will be available to you in the future. To open a bookmark, you simply click it. All bookmarks can be customized and organized to suit your personal taste and needs. For example, you can organize bookmarks into logical work groups and place these bookmarks in the order you see fit. Notes comes with some basic bookmarks, such as your mail or contacts bookmark, but you can add more bookmarks when you need them. This chapter tells you how to do the following: Create a database bookmark Create a view or document bookmark Access information using a bookmark Remove a bookmark 25Creating a database bookmark How will this help me When you open a database, you have the option to mark it with a bookmark. This allows you to quickly return to the data without having to remember where you got the information from. 26Choose File, then choose 1 Database, and then choose Open. Click the database you want 2 to bookmark, and click the Bookmark button. In the Add Bookmark dialog box 3 either accept the name of the bookmark in the Name box or type another name for the bookmark. 27Click the folder where you want 4 to store the bookmark. Click the OK button. 5 28Creating a view or document bookmark How will this help me After you have opened a database and found the view or document that you want, you have the option to mark it with a bookmark. This allows you to quickly return to the view or document within this database without having to remember where you got the information from. 29Open the view or 1 document that you want to bookmark within the database. Choose Create, and then choose Bookmark. 2 In the Add Bookmark 3 dialog box, either accept the name of the bookmark in the Name box or type another name for the bookmark. 30Click the folder where 4 you want to store the bookmark. Click the OK button. 5 31Accessing information using a bookmark How will this help me After you have created bookmarks for databases, views, or documents, you will find it easy to have information at your fingertips. Bookmarks allow you to quickly find what you need and accomplish your everyday tasks. 32Click the bookmark folder that 1 contains the bookmark you want to open. Find the bookmark you want to open and 2 click it. 33Removing a bookmark How will this help me If you find that you no longer use a bookmark in your daily work, you might want to remove it. Too many bookmarks make the ones you want to open hard to find. Removing old ones will keep your folders and bookmarks organized and up to date. 34Click the bookmark folder that contains the 1 bookmark you want to remove. Rightclick over the bookmark you want to 2 remove. Choose Remove Bookmark from the menu. 3 35Using mail without paying for postage 5 Notes lets you send mail to people electronically. You don't need envelopes or stamps or paper or pencils. Best of all, you never have to go out in the rain to send your mail Writing a message in Notes is like writing a regular letter, except the Notes message will reach its destination faster. In addition, you can create fancierlooking messages in Notes because you can change the style and color of any portion of the text. Your message can include tables, graphics, and information from other computer programs. It can even include entire computer files. And you can send the same message to many people simultaneously — without buying more stamps. Notes stores your messages in your own personal mail database. When you receive a message, Notes places it in the Inbox folder in your mail database. After you read the message, you can save it, delete it, forward it to someone else, or send a reply. You can exchange messages with people who are on the same local area network (LAN), wide area network (WAN), or the Internet. If you're not connected to a network, such as when you're at home or in a hotel, you can read and send your mail using a modem and a telephone. This chapter tells you how to do the following: Read messages you receive Create a message and send it Reply to a message you receive Forward a message to other people Delete messages you no longer need Save messages you receive Look at messages in different folders and views Sort messages to help you find the ones you want Keep an address book 37Reading your mail How will this help me The best thing about receiving a mail message is reading it, especially if it contains good news. In order to read Notes messages, you must first open your mail. While your mail is open, you can also create new messages, sort existing messages, reply to messages, and move messages into folders to make them easier to find. 381 Open your mail by clicking the mail icon. The mail icon is a picture of an envelope. Doubleclick the title 2 of the message you want to read. YOU SHOULD KNOW An unread message has a star to its left in the view pane, and its title may be a different color. File To close the message you are reading, choose 3 and then choose Close from the Notes menu, or press ESC. (Press ESC again if you want to close your mail.) 39Creating a mail message How will this help me To communicate with other people through Notes mail, you create and send messages. You can send a message to anyone who is connected to your Notes network. Often, you can send messages to people outside your network, as well. You can format your messages to make them more attractive and easier to read. You can also do all that other neat stuff I told you about in the introduction to this chapter. 40If your mail is open, choose Create, and then 1 choose Memo from the Notes menu. If your mail isn't open, choose Create, then choose Mail, and then choose Memo. In the To line, type the 2 name of the person to whom you want to send the message and press ENTER. To send it to more than one person, type additional names, and press ENTER after each name. As you type, Notes may display the names of YOU SHOULD KNOW people that match The messages you create what you type. If may have a different Notes suggests a name picture at the top than the you want, press messages in this chapter. This won't affect the way ENTER to accept it. things work. Otherwise, keep typing the name you want. YOU SHOULD KNOW To choose names from a list of the people Notes knows about, you can click the Address button. 41Click in the Subject 3 line, and type a brief description of the topic of your message. The subject tells recipients what the message is about before they open it. Click in the area 4 below the Subject line, and type the body of your message. You can make it as long or as short as you want. When you're ready to 5 send the message, click the Send button. 42Replying to a message you receive How will this help me After reading a message that a person sent to you, you may want to respond to that message. Instead of creating a new message from scratch, you can create a reply that already includes the address of the person who sent the original message and the subject of the message. You can even include the person's original message in your reply. You need to type only the text of your reply and send it. 43While reading a 1 message, click the Reply button. YOU SHOULD KNOW You can include the original message in your reply. To do so, click the Reply with History button. Type your message. 2 If you want additional people to receive the message, enter their addresses on the To, cc, or bcc lines. YOU SHOULD KNOW To send your reply to all the people who received the original message, you can click the Reply button and then click the Reply To All button When you're ready to 3 send the message, click the Send button. 44Forwarding a message to other people How will this help me After reading a message that a person sent to you, you may want other people to read the same message. Instead of creating a new message from scratch, you can forward the message to other people. You can also add your own comments to the message. 45While reading a 1 message or while highlighting a message title in the view pane, click the Forward button. Address the message in 2 the same way as you would address any new message. If you want to add 3 your own comment to the message, add it above the message you are forwarding. 46When you're ready to 4 send the message, click the Send button. YOU CAN ALSO... ...forward any document. To do so, highlight or open the document. Choose Actions and then Forward from the Notes menu. 47Deleting messages How will this help me Deleting messages you no longer need makes it easier to find the messages you do need. It also saves disk space on the Notes server that contains your mail. There are two parts to deleting messages. First you tell Notes which messages you want to delete. Notes places a mark beside these messages. Then you tell Notes to actually delete the marked messages. 481 While reading a message, click the Delete button. Notes marks the message for deletion and displays the next message in the view. YOU CAN ALSO... ...mark a message for deletion in the view pane. To do so, click the message title, and then click Delete. When you want to delete the messages you 2 marked, choose View, and then choose Refresh from the Notes menu or press F9. YOU SHOULD KNOW Notes displays a trash can beside each message that's marked for deletion. To see all marked messages, you can look in the Trash folder, as described in the task after next. 49Saving mail you receive How will this help me Saving your mail lets you read it again later. You can save your mail simply by leaving it in the Inbox folder, which is where Notes places it when you first receive it. However, the number of messages may get so large that it would be difficult to find specific messages. Therefore, it is a good idea to move them to other folders. You can create as many folders as you want. 501 While reading a message, click the Move To Folder button. If Notes displays the 2 name of the folder you want, click the name. Then skip to Step 5. If Notes doesn't display the name of the folder you want, click the Create New Folder button. Type a folder name, 3 and then click the OK button. YOU CAN ALSO... ...specify if you want the folder to be shared by others or be seen only by you. To do so, choose an option in the Folder type box. 51Click the name of the 4 new folder you just created. Click Move, or click 5 Add. Move moves the message to the new folder and removes it from the original folder. Add places the message in the new folder and also leaves it in the original folder. YOU SHOULD KNOW YOU CAN ALSO... You can view the ...add a message to a messages in a folder by folder from the view pane. clicking the folder name To do so, click the message title and drag it in the navigation pane. to a folder. 52Seeing messages in different folders and views How will this help me Your mail contains several folders and views that let you look at your mail messages in different ways. The group of messages that you see in a folder or view depends on the purpose of the folder or view. This helps you find the messages you want. For example, you can create views that contain documents from only one person (such as your boss), and you can create folders that contain only those documents that pertain to a special project (such as a quarterly budget report). 531 Open your mail. Click the folder or 2 view you want to see. Notes displays the messages from that folder or view in the view pane. The table below describes the folders and views in your mail. Folder or view Purpose Inbox Automatically stores all messages you receive. Drafts Automatically stores all messages you save without sending. You can later edit and send these messages. Sent Automatically stores all messages you save when you send them. All Documents Shows all messages currently in your mail database. Calendar Shows your personal calendar and the meeting invitations, appointments, reminders, events, anniversaries, and tasks you put on your calendar. To Do Shows the status of all tasks you've created and all tasks people have assigned to you. Also shows messages that ask for a reply on or before a specific date. Meetings Shows a list of all the meetings, appointments, reminders, events, and anniversaries on your calendar. Trash Stores messages you've marked for deletion (or placed directly into this folder). You can delete these messages or decide to save them. Discussion Shows messages grouped with their replies. This lets you view an Threads entire conversation. Archiving Lets you remove messages from your mail database and archive them in a different database. Also lets you view the messages you've archived. 54Sorting messages to make them easier to find How will this help me Sorting messages can make it easier to find a particular message you are looking for. By default, Notes sorts your messages by date in ascending order. Notes also lets you sort messages by date in descending order or alphabetically by the names of the people who sent the messages to you (or to whom you sent the messages). If you know who sent the message or the approximate date on which you received it, this will help you find the message. Notice that the Who and Date column names have little triangles next to them. This tells you that you can click those column names to sort the document titles. When you do this, the triangle in that column changes color. When you click the column name again, Notes returns the document titles to their original order and returns the triangle to its original color. 55Open a mail folder or 1 view such as the Inbox or the All Documents view. To sort the messages 2 by name in ascending order, click Who at the top of the name column. To sort the messages 3 by date in descending order, click Date at the top of the date column. YOU SHOULD KNOW To return the messages to their original order, click the name of the sorted column again. 56Address Keeping an address book How will this help me You might want to add the name of a person or group who sent you a message to your Personal Address book. That way, the next time you begin to type the name of the person or group in the address line, Notes will fill in the rest of the name for you. (Pretty nifty, huh) 571 While reading a message, choose Actions, then Tools Add Sender to choose , and then choose Address Book from the Notes menu. YOU CAN ALSO... ...create a mailing list so you can send a message to all list members without having to type the address of each person. To do so, open the message containing those names. YOU SHOULD KNOW Choose Add Recipients, and then You can open your Address choose To New Group in the Book and add names or Address Book from the Notes menu. create groups directly into it. Then you can simply type the name of the group as the address to send a message to all group members. 58INFORMAT ION Data, data everywhere: 6 Getting information from Notes databases If your company has multiple Domino servers, they probably contain more databases than you'll ever need to use. This is good. There may be databases about company policies, industry news, company products, sales information, marketing information, special projects, forms you have to submit to the personnel department, and almost any type of information you can think of. I've even heard a rumor that someone used Notes to create a database to track sightings of Elvis, although I can't confirm or deny this. (My lips are sealed.) So, how do you tap into all of this information Well, first you find out what databases are available in your company. Then you open the databases you want and read whatever information interests you. Most databases let you look at information in more than one way, which helps you find what you are looking for. Many databases let you add information. Others let you accomplish specific tasks, such as submitting expense reports or attendance reports for approval. This chapter tells you how to do the following: Open and close databases Read documents in databases Read documents without even opening them See documents in different folders and views Forward a document in a mail message 59Opening and closing a database How will this help me After you have created bookmarks for some of the databases you want to work in, you can open the databases to read the documents contained in them. You may also be able to add new documents and edit existing documents, depending on your level of access to the database. You can leave the database open while you work in other databases. 601 Click the Bookmark folder that contains the bookmark for the database you want to open. If your Bookmark is not within a folder, go to Step 2. Click the folder that contains the bookmark 2 for the database. Click the bookmark for the database you want to open. The database opens and displays a list of folders and documents that are in the database. 3 When you want to close the database or document, click "X" at the right of the Window tab which contains the name of the document or database. If the document or database you want to close is displayed by Notes, you can choose File and then choose Close or press ESC to close it. YOU SHOULD KNOW Closing a database does not close open documents from that database. You close open documents separately. 61Reading documents in a database How will this help me You read documents to learn about information you want to know. If a document you want to read is not located in the folder or view currently open, you can open a different folder or view and look for the document there. Notes gives you two methods to read a document. You can open the document first, or you can view the document in the preview pane. This procedure tells you how to read a document by opening it first. The next procedure tells you how to read a document in the preview pane. 62Open the database you want by 1 clicking its bookmark. Doubleclick the title 2 of the document you want to read. YOU SHOULD KNOW An unread document usually has a star to its left in the view pane, and its title may be a different color. (Optional) To read 3 documents in other folders or views, click a folder or view in the navigation pane. Then doubleclick the document you want to read. 63When you want to close the document, click "X" 4 at the right of the Window tab which contains the name of the document. YOU SHOULD KNOW To close the document you are reading and open the next document in the database, you can press ENTER. 64Reading documents without even opening them How will this help me You may want to browse quickly through the documents in a database, but opening each document could take a lot of time. Instead, you can view each document in a special pane called the preview pane. The preview pane is located at the bottom of your screen. When you view a document in the preview pane, you can treat the document as though it were open. You can scroll through the entire document, click buttons, and even edit the document, if you have the correct access to do so. 651 If the preview pane is not open, View, choose then choose Document Preview, and then choose Show Preview from the Notes menu. The preview pane opens and displays the document whose title is highlighted in the view pane. 2 To see a different document in the preview pane, click the document title in the view pane. YOU SHOULD KNOW To close the preview pane, you can choose View and then choose Document Preview again. YOU CAN ALSO... ...specify where you want the preview pane located on your screen. Choose View, then choose Document Preview, and then choose Arrange Preview. 66Seeing the documents in different folders and views How will this help me Databases can contain many folders and many views. The group of documents that you see in a folder or view depends on the purpose of the folder or view. This helps you find documents that interest you. 67Open the database you want to view. 1 Click the folder or 2 view you want to see. Notes displays the documents from that folder or view in the view pane. 68Forwarding a document in a mail message How will this help me While you're reading a document, you may want to share the information you're reading with someone else. One way to do this is to forward the document to the person. You can do this by creating a mail message that includes the document. 69While reading a 1 document, click the Forward button. (Notes creates a mail message that includes the document you are reading.) Address the message 2 in the same way as you would address any new mail message. If you want to add your 3 own comment to the message, add it above the document you are forwarding. 704 When you are ready to send the message, click the Send button. 71 Using those strange things you see in 7 documents You may notice some strange looking things scattered around in the documents you read. There may be little pictures lurking between words or sentences. There may be a little triangle pointing to a line of text. There may be a green rectangle surrounding one or more words. There may be pictures with file names under them. In other words, the documents may look like someone decorated them. I'm sure you've already guessed — these aren't just decorations. All of these things tell you additional information is available to you. For example, a picture with a file name under it usually represents a file that is attached to the document you are reading. You can view the file or even copy it to your hard drive. A triangle pointing to a line of text tells you somebody wrote a lot of words but didn't want to take up a lot of space, so a section was collapsed into one line. You can expand that section of the document to see everything the person wrote. A little picture may indicate a link to a different Notes document or database. You can use the link to easily see the other document or database. And a green rectangle surrounding some words may indicate that you can view an explanation of the enclosed text or that you can click the text to perform a particular action. This chapter tells you how to do the following: View a file that is attached to a document View a document that is linked to another document Open and close a collapsible section Use buttons and hotspots 73Viewing a file that is attached to a document How will this help me You may receive a mail message or read a document that has a file attached to it. For example, someone creating a message about the budget might attach a spreadsheet file that shows the actual budget. Notes displays an icon in the document to represent the attached file. You can view many types of files without leaving Notes. 741 Doubleclick the attachment icon. Notes displays a properties box. To view the attachment, click 2 the View button. YOU SHOULD KNOW You can click Launch to open the attached file and the program that created it if you have the same program on your computer. To return to the Notes document, choose File 3 and then choose Close from the Notes menu, or press ESC. YOU CAN ALSO... ...copy the attached file to your hard drive by clicking Detach instead of View in Step 2. Notes then asks you for a name and location for the file. 75Viewing a document that is linked to another document How will this help me You might receive a mail message or read a document that has another document linked to it. For example, a document in one database might refer to information in another database. Rather than repeat the information from the second database, the document might include a link to the other document. You can view the document in the other database by clicking the link icon. 761 Click the link icon. Read the linked 2 document. To return to the original Notes document, 3 choose File and then choose Close from the Notes menu, or press ESC. YOU SHOULD KNOW People can also use "hotspots" to link documents. Using hotspots is discussed later in this chapter. 77Opening and closing collapsible sections How will this help me Some databases may contain documents in which the author has created sections of information that are collapsible and expandable. In such documents, you can collapse a section to take up less space on the screen. This lets you view more of the topics in a document at once. When you want to see the information in a collapsed section, you can expand it. This lets you see the details about a topic. 78To expand a collapsed 1 section, click the triangle at the left of the section title. To collapse an 2 expanded section, click the triangle at the left of the section title. (Yes, you're right — this is the same thing you did to expand the section.) YOU SHOULD KNOW In most cases, you can also click the top line of a section to expand and collapse it. 79Using buttons and hotspots How will this help me The author of a document may include a button or a hotspot in the document. A button is programmed to perform a certain action when you click it. For example, it could send a message to someone as a response to a questionnaire. A hotspot is text that is usually surrounded by a green rectangle and is also programmed to do something when you click it. For example, a hotspot can display text to explain a concept associated with the word or phrase that is surrounded by the rectangle. A hotspot can also link to another document or database, similar to the links discussed earlier in this chapter. In addition, a hotspot can perform an action, just like a button. 80While reading a 1 document, if you see a hotspot (text surrounded by a green rectangle or the mouse cursor turns into a hand), click the hotspot and continue to hold down the mouse button. Follow the directions in this table. 2 If this happens when you click a hotspot. . . It means. . . Do this. . . Notes displays This is an Read the text and then informational hotspot. release the mouse button. explanatory text. Notes displays The hotspot initiates an Release the mouse nothing. action, (like a button does), button to initiate the or the hotspot is linked to action or to view the another document or linked document or database.. database. YOU SHOULD KNOW Hotspots don't display text when you're editing a document. 81 Putting in your own two cents: 8 Adding information to a database So, enough of reading other people's information. Now it's your turn. You can add information of your own to many databases. Depending on the way the database was designed and the access rights the developer gave you, you may be able to create responses to existing documents or create completely new topics of your own. In some instances, you can edit what someone else has written, but in most cases, you can edit only what you have written yourself. The procedures in this chapter use a standard Notes discussion database as an example. Although the databases at your company may look somewhat different, you can still use these general procedures when you want to add information to a database. This chapter tells you how to do the following: Create a document in a database Respond to an existing document Edit an existing document Check your spelling in a document 83Creating a document in a database How will this help me After reading information in a database, you may decide to add some information of your own. To add information to a database, you create a document. This procedure tells you how to create a document in a standard Notes discussion database. Although the design of databases at your company may vary, you can still use this procedure to create a document in most databases. 84After opening a database, choose Create and then 1 choose the type of document you want to create from the Notes menu. For example, if you want to create a new topic in a standard discussion database, choose Create and then choose Document. YOU SHOULD KNOW These documents may have different names in different databases. This could change the names you choose from the Create menu. Type the subject of the 2 document, and add any other information you want in the document. When you have finished, click the Save 3 Close button. 85Responding to an existing document How will this help me In a discussion database, you can create responses to documents that you read. This lets you state your opinion about a topic, add more information about the topic, or ask questions about what someone else said. 861 After opening the database, click the document you want to respond to. Choose Create from the Notes menu and then 2 choose either Response or Response to Response, depending on whether you are responding to a main topic or to someone else's response. Type the subject of the 3 document and any other information you want in the document. YOU SHOULD KNOW These documents may have different names in different databases. This could change the names you choose from the Create menu. 874 When you have finished, click the Save Close button. 88  Editing an existing document How will this help me After you've added a document to a database, you may decide to make changes to it. You can do this by editing the document. This is helpful if you find out new information or if previous information has changed. In most databases, you can edit a document that you created yourself, but you usually can't edit documents that other people created. 891 Open the database and click the document you want to edit. To open the document so you 2 can edit it, choose Actions and then choose Edit Document from the Notes menu. Make the changes you want. When you 3 have finished, click the Save Close button. 90Checking your spelling How will this help me While you're creating a document, you may not want to stop to correct spelling mistakes. It's often easier and faster to continue typing and then check your spelling when you're done writing. In addition, if you're a normal human being (and who isn't), you probably make spelling mistakes that you don't notice. You can tell Notes to check your spelling and suggest alternative spellings for words it thinks are misspelled. 91 Dictionary1 While you're creating or editing a document, choose Edit and then choose Check Spelling from the Notes menu. YOU SHOULD KNOW If any text in the document is highlighted when you start checking spelling, Notes checks only that text. Otherwise, Notes checks the entire document. If Notes highlights a 2 misspelled word, correct the spelling in the Replace box or click on the correct spelling if it appears in the Guess box. (If Notes highlights a word that is not misspelled, click the Skip button.) YOU SHOULD KNOW If you click Add when Notes highlights a word, Notes adds the word to its dictionary and will never again think it's misspelled. 92If you corrected a word in 3 Step 2, click the Replace button. This tells Notes to fix the misspelled word in the document. Repeat Steps 2 and 3 until Notes informs you 4 that the spell check is complete. Then click the OK button. 93  Making your documents look great 9 One paragraph after another of plain text can be tedious to read. Without variety in your documents, readers may lose interest quickly. In this age of instant information and dazzling special effects, people sometimes have very short attention spans. So what can you do to hold people's attention Well, if you're still reading this book, perhaps GillSa ns a lot of pictures and silly jokes help. But there's even more you can do. You can change the font or style of some text to emphasize it Jupiter or give it a special meaning. You can change  the color or size of text to make it stand out  more. You can change the alignment or spacing of certain paragraphs. You can add titles to sections of documents and add numbered or bulleted lists of items. In other words, you can do anything you want to make your documents look and feel more interesting and make them easier to read. This chapter tells you how to do the following: Change the font, size, color, and style of text Indent a paragraph Change the spacing between paragraphs Create a numbered list Create a bulleted list 95 Mystical  Changing the font of text How will this help me Changing the font of the text in a document can give the document a different look and feel. Some fonts give your document a more formal look than others, and some fonts are easier to read than others. In addition, you can change the font of some of the text to make it stand out from the rest of the document or to differentiate a particular type of information from other information. For example, you might use a different font for information that is particularly important. When you change the font of some text, you may want to change the size of that text as well. 961 While creating or editing a document, highlight the text you want to change. Click the font list on 2 the status bar. Notes displays a list of the fonts you can use. Click the name of the 3 font you want to use. The highlighted text will change to the new font in your document. 97  Changing the size of text How will this help me You can change the size of text to make it easier to read. You can also change the size of a particular piece of text to differentiate it from other text in a document. For example, if you are typing a footnote, you might want to use a smaller size. 981 While creating or editing a document, highlight the text you want to change. Click the size list on 2 the status bar. Notes displays a list of the font sizes you can use. Click the size you 3 want to use. The highlighted text will change to the new font size. 99 Notes Changing the color of text How will this help me You can change the color of text to make a document more visually appealing and make the text stand out from the rest of the document. For example, you may want to make titles a different color to more clearly define the sections of the document. Also, when you make comments in a document that someone else wrote, it's helpful if you write your comments in a different color to differentiate them from the text in the original document. Although color is useful when people view a document on the screen, remember that many people don't have color printers. If you’re creating a document for printing, you may want to use another method of differentiating special text. 100While creating or 1 editing a document, highlight the text you want to change. Choose Text, then choose Color, and then 2 choose the color you want to use from the Notes menu. YOU SHOULD KNOW If you choose Other, Notes displays a property box that lets you choose from a wider variety of colors. (Using the property box is discussed in the procedure after next.) 101 Notes Changing the style of text How will this help me You can change the style of text in a document to make that text stand out from the rest of the document. For example, text that is bold, italic, or underlined draws your attention. This can also be useful if you want to define words in a document. The first time you use a term, you might want to use a different style. 102While creating or 1 editing a document, highlight the text you want to change. Choose Text from the Notes menu and then 2 choose the style you want: Italic, Bold, or Underline. YOU CAN ALSO... ...remove the styles from text by choosing Normal Text from the Text menu in this step. 103 Notes Changing the font, size, color, and style of text all at once How will this help me Notes contains properties boxes that let you make multiple changes without using the Notes menus. If you want to change several text attributes in a document, it may be faster to use a property box than to repeatedly use the Notes menus. 1041 While creating or editing a document, highlight the text you want to change. Choose Text and then choose Text Properties 2 from the Notes menu. Notes displays a property box. (If the box blocks the text you want to see, move the mouse pointer to the right of the "Text" list box, and drag the box out of the way.) If you want to change 3 the font of the text, click a different font in the Font box. 1054 If you want to change the size of the text, click a different size in the Size box. If you want to change 5 the color of the text, click the down arrow in the Text color box, and then click the color you want. If you want to change 6 the style of the text (for example, make it bold or italic), click as many styles as you want in the Style box. YOU SHOULD KNOW You can click a style again to turn it off. 106If you want to change 7 the attributes of a different piece of text, highlight that text and then repeat Steps 3 through 6. After completing your changes, 8 you can close the property box by clicking the X in the upper right corner of the property box. YOU SHOULD KNOW You can leave the property box open and use it whenever you want. 107Me m o To: Notes Users From: Sherman Subject: Indenting a paragraph Choose the paragraph that you want to indent in a message by clicking anywhere in the paragraph. Choose Text and then choose Indent from the Notes menu, or press F8. If you indent a paragraph too much, you can choose Text and then choose Outdent from the Notes menu. Indenting a paragraph How will this help me Indenting a paragraph can make it stand out from the rest of the document. Indenting also makes a paragraph look like a subtopic or an explanation of the text that precedes it. This procedure tells you a quick way to indent a paragraph a preset amount. (You can also use the Text properties, which was discussed in the preceding procedure, to indent a paragraph any amount you want.) 1081 While creating or editing a document, click the paragraph you want to indent. (You can click anywhere in the paragraph.) Choose Text and then choose Indent from the 2 Notes menu, or press F8. YOU SHOULD KNOW If you indent a paragraph too much, you can choose Text and then choose Outdent from the Notes menu. (Optional) Repeat Step 3 2 until you have indented the paragraph as much as you want. 109Me m o To: Notes Users From: Sherman Subject: Changing space between paragraphs To change the spacing between two paragraphs, click in the top of the two paragraphs. Choose Text and then choose Spacing from the Notes menu, or press F8. Then choose the spacing you want to use. Notes places the number of spaces you choose below the paragraph you clicked. Changing the space between paragraphs How will this help me Including space between paragraphs can make a document look less crowded and easier to read. This procedure tells you a quick way to change the spacing between paragraphs. 110To change the spacing 1 between two paragraphs while creating or editing a document, click in the top paragraph of the two paragraphs. (You can click anywhere in the paragraph.) Choose Text, then choose Spacing, and then 2 choose the spacing you want to use from the Notes Menu. Notes places the number of spaces you choose below the paragraph you clicked. 111 To: Notes Users From: Sherman Subject: Numbered lists To create a numbered list, do the following: 1. Choose Text and then choose Numbers. 2. Type the first item. 3. Press ENTER. 4. Type the next item. Creating a numbered list How will this help me Notes lets you quickly create a numbered list. Numbering the items in a list makes the list easier to read and the information in the list easier to understand. In addition, because the numbers stand out from the text, it makes the list more visually appealing. Numbering lets you list items sequentially or in their order of importance. 112Place the cursor at the 1 location in the document where you want the list to begin. Choose Text, then choose List, and then choose 2 Number from the Notes menu. Type the text for the 3 first item in the list. 1134 Press ENTER to create the next item, and then type the text for that item. Follow this step for each item in the list. (Optional) To add more text to the document 5 after you complete the list, press ENTER to create an additional line. Choose Text, then choose List, and then choose Number from the Notes menu to stop the numbering. YOU CAN ALSO... ...number paragraphs you've already typed. To do so, highlight the paragraphs and choose Text, then choose List, and then choose Number from the Notes menu. 114 To: Notes Users From: Sherman Subject: Bulleted lists To create a bulleted list, do the following: Choose Text and then choose Bullets. Type the first item. Press ENTER. Type the next item. Creating a bulleted list How will this help me You may want to emphasize the items in a list without numbering them. Instead, you can put a bullet beside each item. As with numbering, bulleting the items in a list makes the list easier to read and understand, and it makes the list more visually appealing. 1151 Place the cursor at the location in the document where you want the list to begin. Choose Text, then choose List, and then 2 choose Bullet from the Notes menu. Type the text for the 3 first item in the list. 1164 Press ENTER to create the next item and then type the text for that item. Follow this step for each item in the list. (Optional) To add more text to the document 5 after you complete the list, press ENTER to create an additional line. Choose Text, then choose List, and then choose Number from the Notes menu to stop the numbering. YOU CAN ALSO... number paragraphs ... you've already typed. To do so, highlight the paragraphs and choose Text, then choose List, and then choose Number from the Notes menu. 117 Adding information from other sources 10 to your documents There is information all over the place these days. Some of it is in Notes databases, and some of it is elsewhere. While creating a document, you may want to refer to this other information. If the information is in another Notes document, you can let the reader view the other document while still reading  your document. If the information is in a computer file, you can attach the file to your document so readers can view it or copy it to their hard drives. If the information is in a picture, you can copy the picture into your document so readers can see it. You can also copy pictures just to make your documents more pleasant to look at and read, even if the pictures don't add new information to the document. This chapter tells you how to do the following: Attach a file to a document Create links to other Notes documents Add a picture to a document Add a URL link to a document 119Attaching a file to a document How will this help me You can "attach" one or more files to a document so people reading the document can view the files or copy them to their own computers. This lets you share information from other computer programs and lets people use the information in the files in any way they want. When you attach a file to a document, Notes displays an icon in the document to represent the attached file. To use the file, the reader doubleclicks this icon. 1201 While creating or editing a document, place the cursor where you want Notes to display the icon for the file attachment. Choose File and then choose Attach from the 2 Notes menu. If the file you want is 3 not on the drive that Notes displays in the Create Attachment(s) dialog box, choose a different drive. 121If Notes has not 4 highlighted the directory (or folder) that contains the file you want, choose a different directory (or folder). Click the name of the 5 file you want to attach. Click the Create button. 6 122Creating links to other documents How will this help me When you create a document, you may want to refer to information in another Notes document. It would be helpful if the reader could actually see this information while reading your document. You can accomplish this by creating a link that displays the other document. When you do this, Notes places an icon in the document you are creating to represent the linked document. Readers can click the icon to see the linked document. When readers are done reading the linked document, they can return to your original document by clicking the corresponding Window tab or pressing ESC. In this procedure, you open the database to which you want to link and create a link. Then you return to the document you are creating and paste the link into the document. 123While creating a 1 document, open the database from which you want to link a document. Click the title of the 2 document to which you want to link. Choose Edit, then choose Copy 3 As Link, and then choose Document Link from the Notes menu. 1244 Return to the document you are creating by clicking the corresponding Window tab. YOU SHOULD KNOW If the document has no title yet, Notes lists it as "New .....", such as "New Memo," "New Topic," or "New Response." Place the cursor where you want Notes to 5 display the link icon. Choose Edit and then choose Paste from the Notes menu. 125Adding a picture to a document How will this help me Pictures often explain things better than words. In addition, pictures can make your documents more visually appealing and more enjoyable to read. This procedure tells you how to copy a picture from another document or program and paste it into the document you are creating. 126While creating a 1 document, open the file or document that contains the picture you want to copy. (The file can be in another program.) Highlight the picture you want to 2 copy. You may need to click on the picture to select it. Choose Edit and then choose Copy 3 from the menu of the program you are using. YOU SHOULD KNOW The Copy command might be located in another menu, depending on the program you are using. 127Return to the 4 document you are creating, and place the cursor where you want the picture to appear. Choose Edit and then choose Paste from 5 the Notes menu. 128Adding a URL link to a document How will this help me You can create a link in your document that will open another document when people click on it. The link is usually the name of the document that you want to have opened when clicked on. The link will usually be blue in the document. Links are usually created to view pages from a Web site. 129While creating or 1 editing a document, place the cursor where you want to create a link. Type a descriptive 2 name for the link. For example, if the site contains news about your company, you can type "Click here for the latest company news" Highlight the text of the 3 link that you just typed and choose Create, then choose Hotspot, and then choose Link Hotspot. 130Click URL for the type 4 of link you want in the Hotspot Resource Link properties box. Type the exact 5 address of the Web page in the Value box. Click the "X" at the top 6 of the properties box when you are done. The link will appear blue in your document. 131 Organizing documents and viewing 11 them in different ways Have you ever tried to count the jelly beans in a large jar It can be difficult. It can also be difficult to find a particular size and color of jelly bean when there are so many of them. But if those jelly beans were divided into smaller groups, it would be easier for you to find the beans you want. And if you could automatically view those jelly beans in any way you want, it would be even easier. For example, you could group them by color, size, manufacturer, sugar content, or any combination of these factors. Well, Notes won't help you sort jelly beans, but it will help you look at documents in different ways. When a database contains a lot of documents, it can be difficult to find the information you want. Notes makes this easier by letting you view information in different ways and store documents in as many folders as you want. This chapter tells you how to do the following: Create a new folder Move documents between folders Sort documents in a folder or view Refresh a view to show new documents Size panes 133Creating a new folder How will this help me Folders help you organize and categorize the documents in a database. You can create as many folders as you want. In a database about fish, for example, you might have folders for fresh water fish, salt water fish, tropical fish, edible fish, and poisonous fish. If a document falls into more than one category, you can place it into more than one folder. 134Choose Create and then choose 1 Folder from the Notes menu. Type a name for the 2 folder in the Folder Name box. Click on an 3 option in the Folder type box. Private folders can be seen by only you. Shared folders can be seen by others sharing the database. 135(Optional) If you want 4 to place the new folder inside an existing folder (create a subfolder), click the existing folder in the Select a location for the new folder box. Click the OK button. 5 136Moving documents between folders How will this help me You may decide a document you've placed in a folder really belongs in a different folder. Or you may decide that a document should be in more than one folder. You can add a document to as many folders as you want. This lets you see the document when you open any of the folders that contain it. Although you can add a document to more than one folder, Notes keeps only one copy of the document in the database. If you want to remove a document from a folder, but not delete it from the database, choose Actions and then choose Remove From Folder from the Notes menu. Be careful not to accidentally delete a document from the database when you want to only remove it from a folder. 137 SHERMAN'S MOVING COMPANYOpen the folder or 1 view that contains the document you want to move or add to another folder. Click the document you 2 want to move or add to another folder. YOU SHOULD KNOW You can move documents out of folders only; you can't move documents out of views. Choose Actions, then 3 choose Folder, and then choose Move To Folder from the Notes menu. 138Click the folder to 4 which you want to move or add the document. Click the Move button 5 to move the document, or click the Add button to add the document to the new folder. (In our example, Move isn't available because the original document is in a view.) YOU CAN ALSO... ...move a document to a folder by dragging its title from the view pane to the folder in the navigation pane. To add the document instead of move it, press and hold CTRL while you drag it. 139Sorting documents in a folder or view How will this help me In many Notes databases, you can sort documents with a single mouse click. If a database contains a sort column, you can click the title of that column to sort the document titles in the current folder or view. A sort column has one or two triangles to the right of the column title (as shown at the bottom of this page). Sorting the documents in a folder or view makes it easier to find the documents you want and lets you view documents in a different order. In the picture below, the Date column on the left has two triangles, indicating that you can sort documents by date in both ascending and descending order. The Date column on the right has only a downward pointing triangle, indicating that you can sort documents by date in descending order only. 140To sort a database that 1 has a sort column, click the title of the column. The triangle beside the column title turns to a different color, indicating the column is sorted. YOU SHOULD KNOW If the colored triangle is pointing downward, the column is sorted in descending order; upward indicates ascending order. If the column has two 2 triangles, click the column title again to sort the titles in the opposite order from Step 1. The second triangle changes color, and the first triangle returns to its original color. 3 To return the documents to their original order, click the column title again. The colored triangle returns to its original color. 141Refreshing a view to show new documents How will this help me While you are looking at the information in a database, people can create new documents in that database. Refreshing a view shows any new documents that were added since you started to look at the database. 142The view pane must be 1 active. If you're not sure if the view pane is active, click any document in the pane. Choose View and then choose Refresh from the 2 Notes menu, or press F9. 143Sizing panes How will this help me Changing the size of panes lets you determine how much of the contents of each pane to view at one time. When you have several panes open, this helps you see more information in a particular pane. You can close a pane by making it so small that it no longer appears on the screen. You may want to close a pane if it interferes with viewing the contents of another pane. In addition, you may want to close the preview pane to speed up scrolling through document titles. Even once you've closed a pane, you can still resize the pane to open it again. 144To size the view pane, 1 place the mouse pointer over the left border of the pane until the shape of the mouse pointer turns into two arrows, as in the picture. Then drag the border to the left or right. To size the 2 navigation pane, place the mouse pointer over the right border of the pane and drag the border to the left or right. (Did you notice that this is actually the same border as in the previous step Pretty sneaky, huh) To size the preview 3 pane, place the mouse pointer over the top border of the pane and drag the border up or down. 145 Searching for specific words 12 or phrases in documents Okay, imagine you have another large jar of jelly beans with only three red jelly beans in the jar. You suddenly have an intense craving for red jelly beans, but you don't see any. How will you find them Well, if no one is looking, you can stick your hands in the jar and poke around until the red beans appear. But wouldn't it be nice if you had something that would automatically make the red beans jump to the top of the jar Well, as you've already learned, Notes can't help you find jelly beans, but it can help you find specific words in the documents in a database. It can also help you replace those words with different words. (Now, if we can only get it to replace the green jelly beans with red ones.) This chapter tells you how to do the following: Find words or phrases in a document Find and replace words or phrases in a document Find all documents that contain a specific word or phrase Find document titles that contain a specific word or phrase 147                                   Finding a word or phrase in a document How will this help me You might want to look for a particular word or phrase in a document for several reasons. For example, you might want to see what the document says about a particular subject, and you know the section about that subject contains a particular word. Or you might want to edit the part of a document that contains that word. When you tell Notes to find a word or phrase, Notes starts searching from the point in the document where the cursor is currently located. If you want to search from the beginning of the document, place the cursor at the beginning of the document. 1481 While reading or creating a document, choose Edit and then choose Find/Replace from the Notes menu. In the Find box, type 2 the text you want to find. Then click the Find Next button. Notes highlights the first occurrence of the text. If you want to find 3 another occurrence of the text, click the Find Next button again. When you're done looking for the text, click the Close button. YOU SHOULD KNOW Click the Options button to further modify how Notes will search for a word. 149                                   Finding and replacing a word or phrase in a document How will this help me After writing a document, you might decide you don't like the sound of a word or a phrase. You may have used that word or phrase several times in the document and may want to add variety to the document. You can tell Notes to find a word or phrase and replace it with different text. Notes starts searching from the point in the document where the cursor is currently located. If you want to search from the beginning of the document, place the cursor at the beginning of the document. 150While creating or editing a document, choose 1 Edit and then choose Find/Replace from the Notes menu. In the Find box, type 2 the text you want to find. Then click in the Replace box and type the replacement text. Click the Find Next 3 button. Notes highlights the first occurrence of the text. 151If you want to replace 4 the highlighted text with the replacement text, click the Replace button. Otherwise, skip this step. YOU CAN ALSO... ...tell Notes to automatically replace all occurrences of this word by clicking the All button. Repeat Steps 3 and 4 5 until you have found all the occurrences of the text you want to find. Then click the Close button. 152oksl kdlsl sldk ddf;sl wo oksl krdd lsl sldk ddf;sl oksl kdlsl sldk ddf;sl dkdls lskd sl dkslsldk dkdls lskd sl dkslsldk dkdls lskd sl dkslsldk lskd vmcjde gnm tudn; lskd vmcjde gnm tudn; lskd vmcjde gnm tudn; fo mvhdrm fo mvhdrm fo mvhdrm djhf fmword fdkd dkwpq djhf fm fdkd dkwpq djhf fm fdkd dkwpq kdk em djmc,fdjc dfjfi kdk em djmc,fdjc dfjfi kdk em djmc,fdjc dfjfi dm,fjrid slkd dm fmj dm,fjrid slkd dm fmj dm,fjrid slkd dm fmj rjeltpo tojb wps.z rjeltpo tojb wps.z rjeltpo tojb wps.z xmvbt gme ytmhb xmvbt gme ytmhb xmvbt gme ytmhb vmd kdmdsle vmd kdmdsle vmd kdmdsle word oksl kdlsl sldk ddf;sl oksl kdlsl sldk ddf;sl oksl kdlsl slwo dk ddrfd ;sl dkdls lskd sl dkslsldk dkdls lskd sl dkslsldk dkdls lskd sl dkslsldk lskd vmcjde gnm tudn; lskd vmcjde gnm tudn; lskd vmcjde gnm tudn; fo mvhdrm fo mvhdrm wo r d fo mvhdrm djhf fm fdkd dkwpq djhf fm fdkd dkwpq djhf fm fdkd dkwpq kdk em djmc,fdjc dfjfi kdk em djmc,fdjc dfjfi kdk em djmc,fdjc dfjfi dm,fjrid swo lkd dmr d fmj dm,fjrid slkd dm fmj dm,fjrid slkd dm fmj rjeltpo tojb wps.z rjeltpo tojb wps.z rjeltpo tojb wps.z xmvbt gme ytmhb xmvbt gme ytmhb xmvbt gme ytmhb vmd kdmdsle vmd kdmdsle vmd kdmdsle Finding all documents that contain a specific word How will this help me You might want to look for all documents that contain a particular word or phrase for several reasons. For example, you might want to find every document about a particular subject. Or you might want to change a phrase that you typed into several documents. Or you might want to find a specific document, and you know it is the only document that contains a particular phrase. To find all documents that contain specific text, you type that text into the search bar, a long rectangular box that Notes displays just for this purpose. After finding the documents you want, you can edit them or read them to find the information you want. 153While looking at the document titles in the view 1 pane, choose View and then choose Search Bar from the Notes menu. Notes displays the search bar above the view pane. YOU SHOULD KNOW If the search bar is already visible, you can skip Step 1. In the search bar, type 2 the text you want to find in the Search for box. Click the Search 3 button. (This tells Notes to display only the titles of documents that contain the text you're looking for.) 154To display all the 4 document titles again, click the Clear Results button. To close the search 5 bar, click the X button to the top right of the bar. YOU SHOULD KNOW You can save a search word or phrase to be used in the future. After typing the word or phrase, click the More button, and then click the Save search button. Type a name for this search in the Name box and then click OK. 155` grpb vm word grpb vm grpb vm word word                                                                                        grpb vm word grpb word vm grpb word vm                                                                                        Finding document titles that contain a word or phrase How will this help me Finding the titles that contain a certain word or phrase is another way to find documents about specific topics. It is also a way to find words that you may want to change to other words. 1561 While looking at the document titles in the view pane, choose Edit and then choose Find/Replace from the Notes menu. YOU SHOULD KNOW Notes starts searching at the title that is currently highlighted in the view pane. In the Find box, type 2 the text you want to find. Then click the Find Next button. Notes highlights the first title that contains the text. If you want to find a 3 different title that contains the text, click the Find Next button again. If you're done looking for titles, click the Close button. 157 Printing stuff 13 Notes lets you view and create a lot of information online. Sometimes, you may want to print some of that information. Printing gives you copies to distribute to other people or to place in your file cabinet. When you print, you may want to add a header at the top of each page or a footer at the bottom of each page. You also may want to print more than one document. Or you may want to print just the titles of the documents in a database rather than the documents themselves. This chapter tells you how to do the following: Create headers and footers Print documents Print the titles in a view 159Adding headers and footers to documents How will this help me You can add a header and footer to a specific document or to all documents that you print in a database. The header and footer let you repeat information at the top and bottom of each printed page. In the header and footer, you can add page numbers, the current date, the current time, the title of the document, or any other information you think is important. 160With the database open, choose Edit and then choose 1 Properties from the Notes menu. Notes displays a properties box. Click the down arrow and choose 2 either Document or Database, depending on whether you want the header and footer to print on just the document currently selected or on every document you print from the database. 3 Click the printer tab in the properties box. 161If you want to enter text for the 4 Header, click Header and enter the header text in the text box. Then click the Checkmark button to the left of the text box to keep it. Click the X button to erase your changes and start again. If you want to enter page numbers, the date, the time, or the title of each 5 document, use the buttons below the text box. (When you click a button, Notes uses a symbol to represent the action you want.) Button Result Symbol Prints page numbers on every page P Prints today's date on every page D Prints the current time on every page T Pushes header or footer text following other heading or footer information to the right by 1/3 of a page Prints the document title on every page W YOU SHOULD KNOW You can add this information to either the header or footer, depending on which option you have selected. 1626 If you want to enter a footer, click Footer and then enter the footer text in the text box. You can also use the buttons below the text box, as described in Step 5. Click the X button in the 7 upperright corner of the properties box to close it. 163Printing a document while reading it How will this help me Sometimes it's easier to read a long document if you print it. At other times, you may want to print a document to give it to another person or to place it in your file cabinet. You can print a document while you're reading it or while you're looking at its title in a folder or view. You can also print multiple documents from a folder or view. This topic tells you how to print a document while you're reading it. 164While reading a document, choose File and then 1 choose Print from the Notes menu, or press CTRL+P. (Optional) If the printer 2 displayed in the Printer box is not the printer you want, click Printer the button and choose a different printer from the list that Notes displays. YOU CAN ALSO... ...select specific pages to print. Click and enter the page ranges in the From Page and To Page boxes. Then click OK. Click the OK button. 3 YOU SHOULD KNOW You can preview the pages you are about to print by clicking the Preview button. 165Printing documents from a folder or view How will this help me When you're looking at document titles in a folder or view, you can print one or more documents. This lets you print documents without opening them. It also lets you print multiple documents with a single procedure. 166While looking at the 1 document titles, highlight the document you want to print. To print multiple documents, select each document by highlighting it and pressing the space bar. Notes places a checkmark beside each document you select. YOU SHOULD KNOW In most databases, you can also select documents by clicking in the leftmost column in the view pane (where the checkmarks are in the picture above). Choose File and then choose Print from the 2 Notes menu. 167(Optional) If the printer 3 displayed in the Printer box is not the printer you want, Printer click the button and choose a different printer from the list Notes displays. Click the OK button. 4 168Title  TITLE Printing document titles from a folder or view How will this help me You might want to print all titles in a database or all titles in a specific folder or view. This gives you a printed summary of the contents of the database. You can use this as a table of contents if you print all documents in a particular folder or view. 169  Open the folder or view 1 whose titles you want to print. (To print all titles in the database, open the All Documents view, if the database contains one.) Choose File and then choose Print from the 2 Notes menu. In the Contents section 3 of the dialog box, click Print View. 170(Optional) If the printer 4 displayed in the Printer box is not the printer you want, click the Printer button and choose a different printer from the list Notes displays. Click the OK button. 5 171 Tracking your schedule using Notes 14 Appointments In today's world, it is increasingly difficult Meetings to keep track of all the things you need to do. At work alone, there are meetings to attend, projects to complete, information to find, phone Seminars calls to make, projects to complete, memos to write, seminars to attend, and projects to complete. If you also have a personal life, managing all the things you have to do can be overwhelming. (By the way, did you remember that today is your fifteenth wedding anniversary) Well, I'm sure you guessed that I wouldn't have brought up the subject unless Notes has a solution for this problem. It's the Notes calendar and task tracker. The calendar lets you schedule and track your activities and reminds you where you need to be and when you need to be there. The task tracker lets you create and track your "To Do" list. You can display items from your "To Do" list on your calendar as well. The calendar and task tracker are both in your Notes mail database. You can add the following types of entries to your calendar: Appointments, which are entries that have a start and end time, such as meetings, conference calls, and doctors' appointments. Reminders, which are entries that remind you of things you need to do, such as make a phone call, send someone a message, or pick up a loaf of bread on your way home from work. Events, which are entries that span one or more entire days, such as conventions, classes, and vacations. Anniversaries, which are entries that remind you of important dates, such as birthdays, wedding dates, or other special days. Anniversaries typically repeat on a regular basis, such as yearly. Meeting invitations, which invite people to a meeting at a specified time and place. If your company has implemented Notes freetime searching, you can have Notes look at other people's calendars to find the best time to schedule a meeting. This chapter tells you how to do the following: Open and set up your calendar Add entries to your calendar View your calendar in different ways Open to a particular page in your calendar Edit and delete calendar entries Print your calendar Create and track your "To Do" list 17317 18 19 20 21 22 23 2:00 PM Antique Fair at Do quarterly status Michaela 011441817396395 Send printer dates to Michael Kim 5085554908 2:00 PM Tennis Bronsfield Amal Naj 9195550954 Mi ke 10:30 AM Tradeshow schedule 4:00 PM Record Convention meeting 12:30 PM Lunch with J.

However, you may want to change one or more of the default settings. These are contained in the Calendar Profile document. The Calendar Profile document tells Notes some of your calendar preferences, such as the default amount of time to schedule for a meeting and whether you want Notes to notify you prior to meetings. Many of the other settings in the Calendar Profile deal with the freetime system, which lets you look up people's free time to find out the best time to schedule a meeting. If your company has implemented the freetime system and you want to find out more about the other settings in the Calendar Profile, press F1 while the Calendar Profile document is open. 176With your calendar open, 1 choose Actions, then choose Tools, and then choose Preferences from the Notes menu. Click the Calendar tab 2 to open the calendar preferences. 177Make any changes you 3 want by clicking on one of the tabs.

More and more, companies are using the Web as a business tool. The Web lets you visit places around the world and find information about almost any topic. So, how do you access all of this information Well, you can use Notes, of course (if your Notes administrator has set up Notes to communicate with the Internet). Notes lets you search for and access information on the Web. If there is a Web page that you particularly want someone to see, you can forward the page to that person or forward a link to that page. This chapter tells you how to do the following: Open a Web page you know about Search the Web for information Forward a Web page to someone else 209Opening a Web page you know about How will this help me If you know the address of a particular Web page, you can visit that page by typing its address. This lets you open Web pages whose addresses you see on television, hear on the radio, or read about in newspapers or magazines. By the way, people on the Internet call an address a URL (Uniform Resource Locator). The main reason for this is...well, nobody really knows the reason for this, but it certainly sounds more important than "address." 210Click the open URL 1 navigation button. It looks like a globe. Type the address of the 2 Web page (the URL) and press ENTER. YOU CAN ALSO... ...click a URL hotspot to open a Web page in Notes. 211Searching the Web for information How will this help me Searching the Web lets you find Web pages about topics you want to know about. Perhaps you are doing research for a report for your boss. Perhaps you are going to start jogging and want to learn about running shoes. Perhaps you are going on a trip to a foreign country and want to learn about that country. When you do a search, Notes displays a list of Web pages related to the topic you searched for. Notes lets you use the Web search product that you prefer. 212Click the dropdown arrow on the search 1 navigation button (the one that looks like a magnifying glass) and then choose one of the search options. Type in the text to 2 search for and then choose Go Get It 213Stopping a search or a page lookup before it finishes How will this help me Sometimes, opening a Web page or doing a search can take a long time. This can happen when the system is very busy or is having a problem locating what you are looking for. By stopping a search, you can use the Web Navigator to do other things and then retry the search at a later time. 214  STOPStart a search or try to open a Web page (by 1 clicking a link to the page or using its URL). 2 While the search is in progress, click the stop task navigation button. 215Forwarding a Web page to someone else How will this help me If you find a Web page that you want someone else to see, you can mail that page to the other person. Notes creates a mail message that contains the Web page. You can add a comment to the message if you want. 216While reading a Web page, choose Actions and 1 then choose Forward. Choose Forward copy of page 2 and click the OK button. (Notes creates a mail message that includes the Web page you are reading.) Address the message 3 in the same way you would any new mail message. 217If you want to add 4 your own comment to the message, add it above the Web page you are forwarding. 5 When you are ready to send the message, click the Send button. 218Congratulations You have completed the basic Notes tasks. Are you ready for a few advanced tasks 219The advanced class 16 (an appendix) This book has gotten you started using Notes. You can do many things with Notes that weren't described in this book. This appendix tells you about a few of those things. Rather than give you stepbystep instructions for doing them, however, we just give you some hints and then leave you to flounder work on your own. For some of these things, the hints will be all you'll need to figure them out. For other things, you may have to look in the Help system for additional assistance. I hope this book has been useful to you. If it has, feel free to write and let me know. You can even send gifts, flowers, or chocolate. If the book wasn't useful, please keep it to yourself. (You can still send gifts, though.) This chapter briefly describes the following: Creating a folder for your bookmarks Changing the letterhead on your mail messages Using the permanent pen Creating a collapsed section Creating and editing a table Using a full text index to search for documents Using database catalogs to find databases Using Notes from another location Creating a new view for your own use Creating a new database Archiving your mail Some additional tips 221Creating a folder for your bookmarks By default, Notes includes some basic bookmark folders such as Favorites and Databases. You can create and personalize folders for your daily tasks and insert bookmarks into these folders to organize your work. To add a new folder into your Database bookmark, for example, click the Database bookmark with the right mouse button. Choose Create new folder from the Notes menu. In the Create Folder dialog box, type the name for the new folder in the Folder name box. Click on a location for the new folder in the "Select a location for the new folder" window. Click the OK button when done. Changing the letterhead on your mail messages Notes lets you choose from more than 30 letterheads to place at the top of the mail messages you create. Letterheads make your messages look fancier and say something personal about you. (Hmm...better be careful about the one you choose.) To change letterheads, choose Actions, then choose Tools, and then choose Preferences from the Notes menu. Click the Mail tab and then click the Letterhead tab. Select the letterhead you want and then click the OK button. 222Using the permanent pen The permanent pen lets you insert comments into a document in a different color and style than the rest of the text in the document. If you're creating a document with black text, for example, you can use the permanent pen to create comments in green italic text (or any style text you want). To use the permanent pen, choose Text, then choose Permanent Pen, and then choose Use Permanent Pen from the Notes menu. To turn off permanent pen, choose Text, then choose Permanent Pen, and then choose Use Permanent Pen again. The default color and style for permanent pen is red, bold, 10 point Helvetica®. To change these default settings, choose Text, then choose Permanent Pen, and then choose Permanent Pen Style. Creating a collapsed section SECTION As you have seen, you can collapse a section of text so it takes up less space in a document. The reader can expand the section to read it. To create a section, highlight the text you want Notes to include in the section. Choose Create and then choose Section from the Notes menu. 223Creating and editing a table You can add tables to your Notes documents. Tables often make information easier to see and understand. To create a table in a document you are creating or editing, choose Create and then choose Table from the Notes menu. Click one of the table type buttons and either accept or type another number for the rows and columns you want. Then click the OK button When you create the table, Notes adds the Table command to the Notes menu to help you customize your table. Whenever the cursor is in the table, Notes displays the Table command on the menu. Using a fulltext index to search for documents If a database has a fulltext index, you can do more advanced searches than if it doesn't. For example, you can search databases for documents created by a particular author or created before a particular date. You can also create complex search formulas using multiple criteria to find specific documents in databases. To find out if a database has a fulltext index, display the search bar (choose View and then choose Search Bar from the Notes menu). If the word Indexed appears at the top right of the search bar, then you can use the index to do an in depth search. To create a fulltext index, display the search bar, then click the More button, and then click the Create Index button. (If the database is on a server, you must have Designer or Manager access to the database in order to create a full text index.) 224 IndexUsing database catalogs to find databases Your company might have set up database catalogs to make it easier for you to find databases available to you. A database catalog contains lists of databases and their descriptions. You can open databases directly from the database catalog. To find out if your company has created any database catalogs, ask your Notes administrator. Using Notes from another location  Although your office may be the main location at which you use Notes, you can use it from other locations such as a hotel room or your home. You can use Notes from any place in the world, as long as you have a computer, a modem, and access to a phone line. The details for doing this are too involved for the scope of this book. For more detailed information, choose Help, then choose Help Topics, and then click the section named "Notes away from the office." Choose the Help topic that pertains to your situation." 225Creating a new view for your own use Usually, a database designer creates several views and folders for you to use in a database. But what if the designer didn't create a view that displays document titles the way you want to display them Well, you can create your own private view that you can use whenever you open the database. To create a view, it is often a good idea to copy an existing view and then modify it. Again, the details for doing this are too involved for the scope of this book. For assistance, look in the Notes Help index under "Views." Creating a new database Notes gives you many templates to help you create new databases. A template includes the basic design elements of a database, such as forms, views, and folders. To create a database, choose File, then choose Database, and then choose New from the Notes menu. Choose the template you want to use, give the database a title and a file name, and then click the OK button. 226Archiving your mail Archiving your mail helps reduce the size of your mail database while saving the messages you wish to keep. Reducing the size of your mail database makes it easier to use and takes up less space on your workstation or mail server. When you archive messages, they are stored in an Archive database. You can have Notes automatically archive mail on a scheduled basis. You can also manually archive mail whenever you want. When you want to look at the messages you have archived, simply open the Archive database. To archive mail, open your mail. Choose File, then choose Database, and then choose Properties. Click the first tab on the Database Properties box. 227Some additional tips   You may have noticed some of these as you worked with Notes, but I'll mention them just to be sure. 1. When you click on an object or location in Notes and then click the right mouse button, Notes displays a menu that relates to the object or location you clicked. 2. While reading a document in a database, you can press ENTER to close the current document and display the next document in the database or press TAB to display the next unread document in the database. 3. Whenever you want to create something new in a database, such as a new document, table, or folder, look at the Create menu. The items on the menu change depending on which database you are using and which part of that database is active. 4. The items on the Actions menu also change, depending on which database you are using and which part of the product is active. 5. Experiment. Learn. Have fun. 228  Experiment
