How to propagate the design property, 'Prohibit Refresh or Replace to modify'

Technote (FAQ)


In Lotus Domino®, you want to set the design property, "Prohibit Refresh or Replace to modify", for a design element in the Design template. However, this change does not propagate down to databases when running the Designer or "load convert" tasks.


The Design Properties for design elements contain a "Propagate this prohibition of design change" property that you can enable so that the "Prohibit design refresh or replace to modify" setting (whether enabled or disabled) is pushed out when the Designer or "load convert" task is used.
To access the setting, open the template using Domino Designer. Select the desired design element and from the Design menu, choose Design Properties --> Designer panel --> "Propagate this prohibition of design change".
