Taking advantage of DDE integration

With the Ytria Designer Widget installed, you can access Ytria tools via a right-click menu in Domino Designer (and also a Ytria pull-down menu). Just select one-or-more design elements and applicable Ytria tools will appear contextually when you right-click one-or-more design elements.

signEZ DDE Integration

Open: Access signEZ directly from Domino Designer. Only the selected subset of design elements will be loaded initially (which makes opening signEZ in this manner a great choice for those occasions where you only need to sign or audit certain designs in a database--it can be significantly faster).

Sign with another ID: Sign any currently selected designs with another ID.

Get more out of Ytria's Designer Widget by using the Eclipse navigator

The Ytria Designer Widget is even more useful if you make use of the Eclipse-based Navigator panel in Domino Designer 8.5.x as it allows for non-contiguous selections of design elements across databases.
If you haven't yet tried the navigator in your Designer client, we urge you to do so. Here's how:


1) Go to your Domino Designer and click Window>Show Eclipse Views>Other...

global-DDE-nav1

2) In the resulting Show View dialog, type 'navigator' in the search box to narrow down the long list then choose the Navigator under the General category and click OK. And that's all there is to it. The Navigator tab should now be available.
