What to write at the end?

I did not get any more because I had to go back home to work. The journey by car was long enough and I had time to think about what it was like for 2 days in HCL Factory.

It was a great day with lots of interesting information, and it seems that HCL really means “Domino family” seriously.

I’m glad I could be there to meet a bunch of new people.
I’m glad I do not have to end after 25 years of working with Domino / Notes.

Thanks for the invitation, thanks to the all members HCL team.
You do not stop!
!

I look forward to May – engage.ug and sutol.cz conference

Do you need to change the font size in the Notes client?

If you need to use larger or smaller fonts at all times, close Notes client, open notes.ini file in a text editor and add the following setting as a new line anywhere in the file:
Display_font_adjustment=n

“n” is the number of points added to the default size and is a number between -1 and 25. For example, if you want to increase the font size by 3 points, you would type: Display_font_adjustment=3
