Restyle Configuration Store

Restyle can utilize customized configuration stored in an instance of a database named restyle.nsf. Customizations can be created per-user or shared by other Restyle users in your organization.

Per-user sharing can be achieved using a local instance of restyle.nsf, whereas organization-wide sharing can be accomplished by creating a server-based instance of restyle.nsf.

Create the Customization Database

To enable this feature, you need to create a database named "restyle.nsf" from the restyle.ntf advanced template, which is included with HCL Notes Client.

  1. From the main menu, navigate to File > Application > New.
  2. In the section titled "Specify New Application Name and Location":
    1. Use Local if not creating a shared database, otherwise select a server that allows you to create a database.
    2. Enter a descriptive title for the database.
    3. Specify restyle.nsf as the filename.
  3. In the section titled "Specify Template for New Application":
    1. Select Local as the server name.
    2. Select the Show advanced templates checkbox. This option allows advanced templates to be displayed in the selection.
    3. In the "Template" section, select "restyle.ntf" from the dropdown list.
    4. Ensure the Inherit future design changes checkbox is selected. This ensures the new database will receive future design updates.
  4. Click OK to create the new database.
  5. When asked, "Do you want to index this database now?", select No.
  6. Close your application.

Create a Local Replica of the Customization Database

If you are using a server-based instance of restyle.nsf, you need to create a local replica of restyle.nsf so that Restyle will use the customizations.

  1. Open the shared copy of restyle.nsf that was created in the previous steps.
  2. Click File > Replication > New Replica.
  3. Confirm that the "Server" field is Local.
  4. Confirm that the file path is restyle.nsf.
  5. Select All Documents and leave the other settings as they are.
  6. Ensure the Encrypt the replica using checkbox is selected. This encrypts the replicated database.
  7. Do not select Create full text index for searching. This means no text index will be created for search.
  8. Ensure Create immediately is selected. This initiates the replication process immediately.
  9. Click OK. You will see the replication page indicating the replication progress.
